Holy water

Salem - Tharamangalam

Maybe a very simple daily life scene, an old man washing his hands with Holy water from the well
here in the Kailasa Nathar Temple at noon but I love these most simple scenes as a dialogue with
him, telling me how he spend his old days in the house of God to join Him one of these years.

Don't take photos at noon, most will say, for the high contrasts, this one taken at 12:29, a
blistering clear sun, at rather high ISO, a challenge to get all details out without over -or
underexposed areas with a very slight grain reduction in the dark areas and local sharpening.

Enjoy simple life of common people we often walk by without noticing.
