Faces, Paper Street (Chawri Bazar), Chandni Chowk

Okay, it's not called Paper Street, I made that up but virtually every store on the street sells paper or paper related products. I have actually bargained with a couple of the shop keepers when I purchased some school books and binders. You can be pretty sure that I was out bargained but I got a MUCH better deal than I would have in the other stores in Gurgaon and New Delhi. Located a few hundred meters away from gate six of the Jama Masjid, it is my favorite street in India so far. The tiny alleys , some covered, that branch off the street branch out into even smaller alleys just jammed with little stores. I am trying to figure out a way to faithfully capture the images of the little alleys. The guy on the bicycle in the last picture reminds me for some reason of my father.
