As I was walking across the beach, spotted this apartment complex which was on the verge of collapsing. Many people still live here as they cannot afford better housing or they are too lazy to move out.

Hi NAMASKAR dear Lakshmi, how are you?
Sorry for my late reply, as I have just backed from 5 days trip.
This is another great shot indeed. You present very well one secne of downtown in South India. I like the allocation of tasteful colors very much. Thanks for your sharing and have a nice start of a new week!

This must a difficut place to live in and thanks for giving us some insight into life here. The peeling paint and signs of human occupation make this a super photo with lots of interest such as the windows and washing. Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

Namaskar dear Lakshmi
There is a terrible beauty to this photo. By that I mean that despite your subject matter being ugly in many ways, the mode in which you have photographed it has rendered it attractive to the eye. The colours, the textures and the tight framing all combine well to produce this incredible effect. Nice work, congratulations.

This is a graphic presentation of these apartments in a documentary way. Although this image inspires misery and poverty, you have done it in an attractive way with good colors and sharpness.
Have a great day

C'est exactement le genre de photo que j'aurais prise devant cet endroit. Et dire que des gens habitent cet endroit qui semble bien prêt de s'effondrer.

Unforgiving and realistic picture accompanying notes.
Environment and colors that contribute to an individualistic life in the "common" poverty.

Hi Lakshmi, did not see you for sometime...hope all is good.
The only attractive sign here are the multi-colors on the building. Poor, very poor neighbourhood, amazing how people still find the wiil to paint, in order to add some joy to the place.
Fine shot, contribution to TE.

uno scatto ricco di toni colorati eseguito alla perfezione.
Normalmente questo tipo di immagini colorate trasmette allegria, ma in questo caso solo un po' di tristezza per il degrado di abitazioni super popolate e le condizioni di vita degli abitanti.
Have a nice sunday

as bad as the apartments are the are very photogenic. Similarly to old people who's faces are damaged by experience and time these apartments seem to have a lot of history written on their surface. Great colors and in consequence the whole atmosphere,

Very nice image indeed depicting the life in India..Good colors and contrast.
jmdias (52025) 2012-08-18 16:07
curious image showing the terible conditions of life here. the image is very nice but the reality is very sad. sometimes the poverty and misery are closed in themselves and no movement can be created there to transform the things, only something from out can bring the light and break the things.

A very telling image, it conveys such a saddened emotion and yet is very visually appealing with the many strong colors and textures. Great capture in an otherwise dismal setting.

J'aime beaucoup cette image avec ces vieilles peintures qui ont pris de l'âge.
