Getting coco

India - Tamil Nadu - Madurai - Thimmanatham

If you were 47, would you still be coco to climb a 12 metre high coco-nut tree for posing like this ?
Ochappan did, not for his portrait but for getting coconuts as welcome drink for his guests, a Tamil threat of rural hospitality.

Watch out ... he throws them down.

This is a beautiful image. Well captured. It brings back memories of my trips to Kenya as a child where they also scrambled up trees to collect coconuts for us.
