Photographer's Note

Still in my archive, still a photo from my mobile phone, still of questionable quality, but not as random as my previous photo.

I shot this through the window of my hotel room in Chennai when I performed a job there.
As my job required me to primarily be on site or stay on call we always booked hotels from the upper rankings at a location, this time at the hotel that was ranked among the top 5 hotels in Chennai.
But despite this spotless and perfectly kept hotel it had a different back side, this run down area just behind the hotel.
The contrast was quite extreme.
The backside of the medal we say in Norwegian, maybe best translated to "the flipside" in English.

It makes for a stark contrast to what most visitors to an area might aim to experience, they might not even be aware of how things are just around the corner.

But let me point this out... this is not typical for all of Chennai, as maybe also visible from the background of the photo.
Unfortunately I was there for work only, so unfortunately very few photos.
