Madurai

or long plastic rain pipes ....

I caused some troubles here and to be honest, I had some fun by taking this shot of those working people.
The first man saw me aiming my camera and he suddenly stopped .... the second man didn't notice in time so all this pipes fell on to the ground, I couldn't hold myself laughing while I said stupidly 'Oh, Sorry' (manikuvum) ... the harm was already done.:))

Reminds me the day I learned the word 'manikuvum' on a bus from Pitchai, fisherman. Sitting behind a lady with long tress of hair hanging over the back of the seat, teasingly asking my Tamil friend how do you say 'I'm sorry' ... I pulled her tress alright while the bus was making a curve and said 'manikuvum' ... she smiled ... the fisherman almost under his seat, ashamed ... :)), you're not supposed to touch a woman, although on a bus fisherwomen almost dare to sit on your lab, real smelly !

Some words you can't forget anymore hanging together with funny anecdotes.

In the serie: Simple people making them special.

Excellent image. I found this while looking for shots taken with the 24-70. Yours appears to be an excellent copy... or just an excellent photographer!
