7. " U & I "

Mostly you take a photo and then find a suitable title. But sometimes the reverse process also does take place. I had a title " U & I " for a long time in mind and once i was lucky to get this shot on an evening in the bed of river Vaigai to suit the title.

No offence meant!

While stitching my shoes this old gentleman - in seventy plus - showed me a discarded video cassette and asked me whether anything could be done with that. I told him that it was nothing but a trash. This question he asked me when I asked him if his stitching would last long. I never realised that he had answered my doubt by that question. Because after stitching the shoes he asked me to test the quality of the twine he had used. It was really very tough and also looked very different. Then he told me that he had made the 'twine' out of the videotape ! I wondered at his ingenuity. When I appreciated him, he just poop-poohed the whole thing. He told of his life, the two wives, 11 children and all that. We became so friendly that he willingly accepted to be photograped. I should one day have a chit-chat with him sometime to know more about him. In case I do, i will let you all know, definitely.

5. FACES...1

Whenever I see this pix that I took long time back, I always remember how this gentleman prepared himself - combing his beard and hair so neatly - when I requested him to pose for a 'single click' !

Is it not nothing but a blind fortune that I had a bird in the frame just when I 'single clicked'? !

Barks of tress are always a fascinating subject.
You see anything there in them?
See any dog & monkey here?

Any temple in Tamil Nadu, India and especially the Meenakshi Temple in Madurai is treasure cove for anyone interested in photography. One will never be satiated taking photos of the lovely and antique sculptures and architectural marvels of this temple. For nothing it has been spelt out as one of the top 30 wonders of the world.
