Peeling Paint Pictures


Do you see what I see?

I see a monk in a cape doing aarti with a lamp. What do you see?

At the marina beach, Chennai. A lonely fisherman pondering about the day that lies ahead.

The Old Woman and the Sea

This old woman with her meagre belongings was loitering on the beach. Maybe she was looking for some remnants of fish or for some alms.

Tricolour Anyway



Red, white and blue – still it conveys the emotion.

A jeep which is damaged beyond repairs and a grounded boat both vie for space on Uroor Olcott Beach.

Tattered Flag

The boat with a tattered black flag at Uroor Olcott Kuppam, off Besant Nagar, probably reflects the mood of the fishermen after a poor day’s catch.

This crow is obviously having it easy, having caught a fish off the fisherman’s net. A scene from the Marina Beach, Chennai.

Abandoned boat

Elliot’s beach is becoming a dumping yard for discarded items.  Earlier we saw an abandoned cart. Now a boat.

This dilapidated boat may be photogenic. It could also be a cosy coop for a tete-a-tete. But it has become a dump for trash and a breeding place for mosquitoes.
