I think this old horse is performing a struggle against the modern transprtation...

This "kuthirai vandi" carries a lot of memories for me & was a standard carrier inpalani for people during the yester years...
I like the juxtaposition of the cart with a modern mahindra van which has replaced kuthirai vandi as a public carrier in palani.

very nice photo and so many beautiful colors.. but if you see the faces of the ones on the cart, of the truck driver.. and even of the horse, no one seems to struggle.. :-)
(in my humble opinion)

Indeed Pramod, that's the one thing that you remark so typically here in Pallani, those small cars with their small horses and you show them in a good setting, old tradition towards modern time, the horse claming his rights.
The photo itself is perfectly composed bringing these contrast elements together, the colors perfectly balanced, tiny flattened, easy to upvalue and the subject is perfect for noticing this typical street-scene of Pallani.
Very well seen

A perfect image Pramod. I like the expressions on the faces. The image is crisp with great DOF. I wonder if the guy in the KBK travels van is tooting his horn?

Original toma de este vehiculo bloqueando el paso. la tranquilidad que desprender sus pasajeros es muy buena.
