I was returning home on a Sunday afternoon after shooting some nice Minimalist Photos at Jantar Mantar, Jaipur. On my way back I stopped at the road side "Tea Stall" to have a cup of Indian Chai, or Tea. 

It was about 12.30 pm in the afternoon and it was really very hot and sunny. I had the camera in my lap still switched on and I was looking at the streets hunting for a street shot for some street photography, for a change. Something prompted me to look-up and when I did I spotted this mix of great colors.

This is a temporary roof/shed made by the Tea Vendor to protect his customers from the heat of the Sun or Rain, while they sit and have tea at his Tea Stall. I took this shot sitting on the chair. Sometimes I get really lazy. I made sure that I gave the brighter color i.e yellow, more space in the frame.

I placed the other colors to the left of the frame, to form different sections. Thereby making this photo fall under the Minimalist Photography Category: Minimalism as Few Distinctive Colors.
