These two little girls accompanied by an adult were on Harrington Road on an early Sunday morning, either going to the church or some school activity. They were very happy to pose for the Chennai Photowalk photographers.

The exhibits at the Lighthouse MRTS during the Chennai Biennale were unattended and neglected. This guard employed by a private agency made up for it. He was very helpful and took me round some of the major exhibits.

The milk crates of the local dairy (Aavin) was always dark blue. So, these orange coloured crates are a welcome change. wonder if the colours (blue, orange) have any significance.

Homing pigeons of Chennai

We met Balan in a narrow lane off Harrington Road. He proudly showed us his homing pigeons. He reminded us that these are local varieties and are not racing pigeons. Racing  pigeons are different and he said there were quite a few enthusiasts in Chennai. While his  pigeons do not go beyond the city,  racing pigeons can fly hundreds of kilometers.

Amma is everywhere.

This picture  is from a well-known boutique. I took a picture with my MotoG  only to find that an Amma poster is the most prominent sight through the window.
