Candid of market man peeling peas. He pulled down his surgical mask to smoke a cigarette.

Thanks for the high votes and nice collection of comments. It appears staged but wasn't. He looked at me, the tourist with a camera, as i pushed the shutter button. His cluttered environment fell into place.

Fabulous! Congrats! LOve the lowered mask, so he can more effectively pollute himself :-)

Congrats on the shared blue. Wonderful environmental portrait. In my lineup you also shared the blue - but with a different other.

I can't tell if this is posed or a street shot, but in the end it doesn't matter because either way the image says a lot about your subject and his environment. Nice job.

The best pic in the competition. I would have done it without the frame though.

This to me is the perfect entry for this challenge - the subject is doing what his environment is explaining and is engaging the photographer. The photo also tells a good story, but also defines the subject well.

Why would a smoker wear a mask (well, maybe he's protecting others, not himself :-) )?
