The sky takes on shades of orange during sunrise and sunset, the colour that gives you hope that the sun will set only to rise again. ….

The rain, river, rides and the dog’s love

With great expectation and anticipation I ventured out to Kadamakkudy Islands on my cycle today expecting to capture the beauty of a sunset. Unexpectedly the summer rains stopped me. . For the photographer in me, once decided to click, I must click. Standing at the veranda of the small S.K hotel, on the banks of river periyar I clicked….Kaizer the street dog whom I get biscuits whenever I meet him, and as a reciprocation of his gratitude and love, he accompanies me till the gate of my house which is approximately a mile away, and stand there for a while before bidding good bye with a painful look in his eyes..I too feel sad as I am not used to this kind of unconditional love and gratitude from the fellow humans…..This photograph captures the rain, river, rides and the dog’s love….all beautiful…..

River Periyar

Those plastic bottles.......

A daily stand up meeting

Beef with Kappa (tapioca)

Captured this photograph at S.K hotel, a small hotel on the banks of river Periyar. This is served from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm. You have to take the ferry road from the SNDP junction, immediately after the varapuzha bridge (while coming from Ernakulam side) and drive about 1 km, before you reach the mannamthuruth ferry. Delicious. Contact Jose : 9995852322
