Tea Stall by चायबाज़ देवजित आचार्य

Tea Stall., originally uploaded by cheerfull_soul.

I loved the green walls ... that prompted me to take the picture.

Time for another ChaiBaaz to be introduced on Chai Ki dukaan...
Name Devjit Acharya, nick name Cheerful Soul

and the photo is from the streets of Banaras.

What I like about him is his fantastic eye to capture moments from the streets and the powerful compositions he presents. Dev is also one of the people who is excellent with photography fundamentals from the group of people I know, needless to say he is one of my favorite photographers and a constant source of inspiration!!!

Check out his flickr page (here) and enjoy !!!

Thanks Dev for letting me post this photograph on Chai Ki Dukaan !


  1. nice shot this...
    like the entire setting...
    shots may differ...
    shots may be beautiful...
    but the essence of a chai ki dukaan aka T shop..empty glasses, aroma of tea till few shops ahead, people catching up on each other, old vessels used like umpteen number of times to make tea..all are same to all the shots :)
    I like this chaibaaz section a lotttt :)

  2. Interesting composition.
    I esp. like the splash of 'green' and the steam.

  3. what makes this really interesting is the snow falling on the bare chested chai wala :))
