Enjoy your old days ...

Madurai

As you get old in Tamil Nadu, you stay part of the life, maybe less active but still enjoying, sitting outside, watching what goes on around as in the South the life happens mainly on the street.

He was finishing his lunch at noon and after he started to tell me all about the small temple just across the street, he was so proud of it. Look at his typical wasti or white cotton waistcloth and that towel on his shoulder.

Don't despair when you get old, here you feel yourself young again and respected highly. So what are you waiting for ?

I induced a inner shade and some over sharpened soft focussed pointillism towards the border as nothing is perfect, indeed what a relief here in India of our ever seeking illusion.

Very nice. I like the different lines and colors and his flip flops sitting there. Well done.--Rene
