Cooking Corn

I took this photo in Munnar, India when I visited last year. This corn stand was at a tourist area called Echo Point where sounds would echo when spoken from a certain riverbank.
The man in the photo was selling fresh cooked corn in a roadside cart. After cooking the corn he would cover it with chili powder and then hand it to you. Not a bad way to have fresh corn.
In order to capture the freshness I framed this shot with the raw corn in front and the cooking kettle in the back.

I've only had corn cooked this way with the husk on. It looks tasty!

We roasted fresh picked corn every summer when I was a child. Nothing else compares.


Nice shot, thanks for the memory flash back.

I too remember the first time I rode a bike without training wheels. It was like the time I took a river boat trip up the Mississippi on Flag Day while Willie Nelson sang the National Anthem.

Thanks for the comments,

Something about the freshness and the uniqueness of roadside stands makes them good subjects for photos (as opposed to fast food resaurants).

The last time I visited my home country was 20 yrs ago and I reemember seeing a street vendor on a step of a popular tourist attraction roasting corn.

So when I go to festivals, I always look for roasted corn. It's the one of the only things that reminds me of Indonesia.

I really can relate to this image.
