Life in India – VI

IMAGES FROM A MOVING TRAINThe Journey back to the city

During my journey back, I did not want to limit myself to the windows and the air-conditioned coupe. Instead I thought it would be nice to get some pictures in natural light, and was up as early as 6am to see how I could fare with my camera and the moving train. The morning mist proved spoilsport for some pictures, but was awesome when you learn to look at life without the “Fotoapparat” . This time the scenery was different, since we were getting back to the city. More buildings, bridges,and people in place of lakes, hills and fields. Nevertheless – it always is interesting to capture some moments and make them memories. 

All rows converging in the mist
Trees huddling together in the mist
Fields behind the gravel
Black bed of gravel against white bed of mist
Bridge under construction
Construction materials or scrap?
The train whizzing past - and the road just off the tracks

Parallel Tracks…

Strangers become Friends - (These people were up early waiting for their respective trains)
Past hills
And huts...
And pets in the huts - a rooster, cow and calf
Past temples...
And brightly colored houses
Traffic at railway gate...
Just clicked it because it seemed an interesting structure - I do not know what this is!
The sun rises...
We slow down a bit...
Time for a cuppa! Coffee - The elixir of life for many a passenger
By the time the sun was up... we were nearing our destination
Signaled by the arrival of modern architecture right next to the humble hut...

    In the rooster/calf picture, the red cane chair/swing on the tree looks really artistic 🙂

    Thanks gal! I liked the fact that all 3 were lazing around unbothered by any other presence 🙂
