Sparkling bright

What with all the bomb blasts in Bangalore and Ahmedabad over the past few days, taking photographs in public seems to be a rather adventurous pastime. In Chennai too, police have been placed on the alert. Thankfully, that does not seem to have hampered the regular activities of the city; things seem to be going on just fine.

Including the afternoon showers. A couple of sharp spells last afternoon cooled down the city without seriously inconveniencing anyone. The dark clouds put the raintrees to sleep earlier than usual, so when the sun came back at around 6 o'clock in the evening, it had a little more space to shine through on to a damp Eldams Road.

Wish things could stay this way, without threats of bombings or retaliations!

Where is this T.Nagar? I love Chennai being a chennaite myself. Good work on these photos!

One other reason, for the brightness after a rain, is the washing down of the suspended atmospheric dust by the downpour, especially in dusty cities like Chennai. I love the clean air, however transient it is...hmmmmmmm.

Booo-hoooo! They have set up a security check at the Tambaram railway station entrance. It means 5-6 lanes of mad humanity, clambering up the stairs, will now have to squeeze through one lane...and it achieves? Only that now I have to start 5 min earlier to work!! booo-hoooo!!!
