I was walking down a street that extended into the wholesale district. The street was crowded. Workers were standing here and there. They were waiting for the next job to come along.

This area of Pettah is lined with wholesale stores, and many trucks are parked here for unloading. Unloading is still done by hand, so many workers are waiting on the street. The man in the photo is one of them. He is waiting for the trucks to come and start unloading. Next to the man, I saw large boxes, probably unloaded from the truck that came before.
