Srirangam is a small town in Trichi district. It is bounded by Cauveri River on one side and Cauveri distributary on the other side. There are many followers of Lord Vishnu here.
We went to see the famous temple here. After finishing lunch, I was just walking around this busy town when I came across this closed shop. In India, many shops close for lunch. I couldn't wait for 3 hours before it opened. I just took the shot of this closed shop for its colors.
These small shops are run by one owner who hires the locals for cheap labor. The owner doesn't make too much money but enough to live comfortably.Most of these shops need repairs but no one cares.

Nice photo,but there is probably something to do to reduce the halo in the foreground...
I will try a workshop on it!

I like this daily scene with classic bicycles queuing to get their rides fixed. The store is still closed with contrasting paint colors.
Thanks and have a nice day.

Another daily life scene well presented. Good contrast of colors between the roof and the walls of the shop. There's work waiting for the opening.
Have a nice day

Il y a quelque chose de dérangeant dans le centre de l'image comme si il y avait de la buée dans ta lentille, ce qui enlève de la texture à l'ensemble.

Hello Dear Lakshmi,
The bicycle shop is asleep! The owner is asleep, also. The time in the photo seems to advance itself very slowly. I wonder if these few bicycles left outside belong to the repair shop or to their customers? In places where the weather is fine, and the temperature rises during the afternoon, taking a nap becomes a natural part of daily life (?). A slow life style is nicely captured in the photo. Coming from NYC, where nothing sleeps 24 hours a day, this scene represents a different life style. I ride a bicycle everyday here. It is a part of my daily life. And yes, it needs constant care, as it is getting very old. The bright green, the bright orange colours of the wall, and the bicycle, in combination with the visually represented image, I can imagine the afternoon very well through your photo. It is a very nice image of daily life.
With my warm regards,
Have a very nice day, Lakshmi

Dobar tekst ...
Lepo mesto ispred zatvorene prodavnice sa parkiranim bicikama.
Dobar snimka i prikaz, lepe boje.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan.
Kod nas i dalje Sibirska zima, vlada je proglasila vanredno stanje u zemlji.
Good article ...
Nice place in front of closed shops with parked bicycles.
Good recording and display, beautiful colors.
Have a nice and successful day.
With us still Siberian winter, the government declared a state of emergency in the country.
All the best.

very charming and colorful scene from the daily life.

All bicycle seem weel repaired in picture, and the grand tourqise color is dominating.
I learent that this unique color is very difficult to process on digital photography, and it is always give extra glare on picture - no exception here.
Yet, I find your documenting India most interesting.

Namaskar dear Lakshmi
What a characteristic shot, often houses and shops in disrepair make better subjects than pristine new houses. Thanks for sharing and I wish you a lovely day.
