Candy, Cold Drinks and Paan

Posted by
Avishyaa (Manama, Bahrain) on 24 July 2015 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

I took this picture from the back just so I could capture the third almost hidden item he was selling.
Up on the counter you can clearly see that there are jars of candy and lollipops on display along with some 'cold drinks' like Pepsi and India's good old, Thumbs Up.
On the counter below, the silver tins and green betel leaves are all the ingredients required to make Paan. The betel nut is wrapped in the betel leaf and tobacco is added sometimes too. It is usually eaten by older men and women and is rarely ever sold to younger people.
I thought it was quite interesting to see the variety of items he had on sale.

Currently Business student but still an ardent fan of photography. I'm originally from India but I've been raised on the little island of Bahrain all my life and am now living in Canada. I started photography back in 2012 and my style and subjects have evolved so much since then. I'm always trying to learn with each photograph I take, so I would love to read whatever advice you have to share.
