A Shot from the Pulicat Lake... Pulicat Lake Borders Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu... its a backwater lagoon with a number of islands and a famous site for birdwatching... there is a kinda of an island(seperated from the mainland by the backwaters!)The main one with about 200 families the island can be reached by a ferry. Goods are transported to the island on these carts for a few rupees... what looks like a flat ride is infact not... as the carts proceed they go into depths where the buffaloes are almost completely submerged...The carts keep ferrying to & fro...the sight of the carts crossing over brings in a lot of the sweet memories of the golden past amidst the sounds of the blaring horns and rushing drivers...
PP : Converted to B&W as the colors where dull (mid day water & sky) cropped to add length (signifying the long road ahead) Image not very clear as shot from a moving boat with a 10x Optical

C'est une très belle photo N&B, rythmée par les 3 chariots et les boeufs. Il y règne une certaine simplicité qui me plait beaucoup

Hi Pracas..nice composition and contrast between the foreground and background.

this surely needed much more attention from the TE members than it received till now. In my opinion it is a very good composition. the conversion to black and white may not be that good, but it is a very good one in terms of composition. nice work friend.

This one and your next...
A touchy essay upon human work.
The ethos of it.
A hard work. Eternal work.
A work that has no end. A work for the work itself.
I know...It must hurt - sometimes!
Stay sensitive, Pracas
