A Night At Parthasarathy Temple

I had a chance to go to Triplicane on some work and took about an hour off to soak into the life around the Parthasarathy Temple. Here are a few snapshots.

    Lovely photographs! I especially like the man working in his office, and the one in front of the lighted office, with the safe, and all the pictures on the walls – is he talking on a cell phone? They are all full of life.

    The pictures take me to the golden “MALARUM NINAIVUGAL”{the memoryline) of my bachelors days at the mansion at Triplicane Bigstreet, Lunch at the Sydoji Mess or Indira Mess and a bottle of beear at the Balaji Wines followed by the dinner of Idlis with BAKODA KURUMA at Big Stret Tinneveli Halwa Stall or at Rathna Bhavan, Milagai Bajji in fron of the Star Talkies and so many other things; the happy days have gone,,,,, once for all

    Hey Kribs! Lovely shots. The man relaxing in front of his shop with the safe and the last two shots are really beautiful. I like the shot of the temple exterior from a low perpective with the auto and driver in it too. If a picture is worth a thousand words, thats a really long post. And so very evocative too. Good going!

    Nice work. Not a single subject staring at the camera. How did you manage to not attract their attention?

    Lovely pictures. They show a slic of life – and I keep thinking about what they would tell a person who’s never seen this side of Chennai. Very nostalgic.

    Great pictures! These pictures remind me of the madaveethi of Mylapore and the crowded madaveethi of Kumbeshwarar kovil in Kumbakonam. Mylapore was my mother’s porantha aham and Kumbakonam was where my father grew up. The pictures brought back images of these two places that are etched in my memory.

    I have personally stood at almost all spots u have captured. I just closed my eyes and went back down the years. I loved the one @ the temple tank for it was a spot for many of my confidences too. the mami on the left brought back the pose I adopted during those times,
