Thousands of shiny silver pots are left to dry in the hot afternoon sun.   As many as 5,000 pots a day are cleaned with chemicals which make them shine before being rinsed with water, then dried in the sunlight for around half an hour.  <br />
<br />
The pots - generally used to make food - take around three minutes to make at a nearby silver factory.   The photos were taken by hobby photographer Touhid Parvez, in the city of Bogura in Bangladesh.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
