More from “Pondi”

Just some snap shots around my friend’s neighborhood.  There were some fun shots being taken as I looked down from the roof of their apartment building.  It seems like you get even more of a peak at real life when no one things you’re watching.  Big thanks to the little boy busting a move on the top of his roof top!  But, my roof top is higher then yours!

This kid was dancing, jumping off the tall stool, and stretching. He was hilarious to watch.  We made our presence known when we were looking out the window, but that didn’t seem to stop him.

Yeah, why don’t we give time a break.  Come on.

Cracks in the street started my map series for my artwork.  These cracks are amazing.

Color, floors, a quaint doorstep to where?
IMG_2411
Nice empty streets, not too many of those in Chennai (except on Sunday mornings).

More quaintness from Puducherry.

So many of the gates are extremely decorative, you could just take pictures of these all day long.

Don’t front, city style.  Such a strange representation on a main street in Puducherry.

Inspiring color combos and pattern.

Roof tops.
IMG_2293
More roof tops.  You see a lot of variety.  There are thatched ones, flat ones, corrugated ones, plastic covered ones, and a mixture of all of them.  People make due with what they can get.

Roof advertising, “Vote for him”. (I’m not really saying vote for him, this blog in no way supports any candidates of any political background or country)

These bikes were just propped up against this wall, we followed the line of bikes and it led to a bike shop.  All the parts are used and re-sued for other bikes.
IMG_2290
Duality of it all.
IMG_2332
We thought there was a lot going on here.
IMG_2366
Old, yet colorful. Showing it’s wear well.

Train, cathedral.  Both are really easy to hear from this vantage point.

Zooming in.

I’ve noticed this in Chennai too.  There are quite a few buildings that are just cut off, or 1/2 torn down.  From what I can tell, at least in Chennai, they decided to knock part of the buildings down to build the road through the area.  I am not quite sure what is happening here, but that’s what it reminds me off.

Little side street, where my friends live.
