As I’m planning to go on a weekend trip to Pondicherry , I thought I’ll give you all a quick peek of my last visit in 2010..
Well, I must get on with the post and they say Pondicherry is a place in India where “the locals are more French than the French and the French are more local than the locals.”
Let me show a few images before going on..
This is the Promenade, a long walk along the seashore, where I actually spent 3 hours of my time in Pondicherry.
An empty stall by the beach.
And the crows went “Attack mode”.
You may be able to deduce that a storm was brewing in the horizon, from the previous pictures. And it drizzled a bit, and people ran for shelter.. I looked around, and said “Voila”. Ran across the road to take this.. My favorite image from Pondicherry.
Few people were actually enjoying the storm , with company of course..
And there were few who did not want to miss a photo opportunity at the Gandhi statue nearby.
One of my very first street portraits. Very aptly they say, “Pondicherry. Give time a break.”
And lastly , I couldn’t miss out on the French quarter, where streets are cobblestoned. Actually, I don’t have any images of the streets and so I’m posting an address of a house in the French quarter.
