Scale And A Heap Of Garlic

Man weighing with weighing scale

The man weighed with the weighing scale

Shot in the city of Galle, Sri Lanka.

Many street vendors did business on the sidewalk. The street became a street market. The major article for sale here was the foodstuff.

The man in this photo was one of the street vendors. What he sold was garlic and he sold them by measure. Many garlics were piled up around him. During watching him working, a customer came to him and placed an order. And he started to weight. He used an old fashioned weighing scale to measure. It was still common to use such scale here. Watching the scenery, I felt a travel emotions.
