"The fruit vendor's son ..."
... is actually neither a set-up shot and the boy was also not posing for the camera.
He was not even aware of me being just in front of him, beeing deeply in thought with
his notice pad and bills.
I cropped this scene closely when taking the shot in order to "highlight" the round forms of the fruits with the boy just fitting in. A full-frame picture of the whole shot would just have been another picture of a fruit & vegetable shop in one of countless Indian markets you can see at almost every corner in any town of India.
The picture might even go through as an environmental portrait, if you want a label for this kind of photography.
Since he didn't realize that I took his picture it might be a nice surprise to bring him a print if and when I come back through his hometown on my next trip.
