Cycling with my camera

Cycling can be lonely, but in a good way. It gives you a moment to breathe and think, and get away from what you’re working on.
David Byrne

“Cyclers see considerably more of this beautiful world than any other class of citizens. A good bicycle, well applied, will cure most ills this flesh is heir to” Dr. K. K. Doty

It is at the time of dawn that we must commune with the gods. Apollonius of Tyana

Birds and humans of Kadamakkudy – The special bond between the Parrot and Shanmughan

Shanmughan a portrait

This time, he was with a parrot with whom he has developed a special bond. He does not own this parrot. Every day morning this parrot makes a visit to his house. Shanmughan and his family give him food. Then the parrot accompanies Shanmughan for a while and then disappears to reappear the next day. Shanmughan says that this parrot has a special knack to pick up cigarettes and cigarette lighters from his home and throw them out. Here is Shanmughan with the parrot at the main road cutting across of Kadamakkudy Islands

Shanmughan with the Parrot

May be, the birds have a special power to identify those with a beautiful heart like Shanmughan who is very soft spoken person. When I asked for his permission to photograph him, he had this small request….Sir, will you please get me a copy of the photograph. Last time when you published my photograph , lot of people told me about it, but I could not see it as I do not use neither a phone nor a computer……

Shanmughan’s photograph, captured almost a year back

This time, I will definitely give you a printed copy of your photograph. Thank you dear friend for spending some time for me, amidst your daily struggle for your daily catch of fish. Good bye, till we meet next time.
