  1. The girl really gives this shot heart. I love her bare feet and white dress and the red flower in her hands and the way she seems to be examining the intricacies of the wall. Also, kudos for getting the shot so straight!

  2. when will I be able to look at my same old church.. with the curiosity of a child….? like a travellor ?? ….. is this churches and temples boring me a lot ? ….

  3. well, there was a comment from a seasoned photographer sonali which said: These photographs are plain ordinary. And should have tried to view things differently. (The post and the comment got deleted accidently. It was a big, useful comment)

    Reply: Sonali, I will try to do that in future. Also during this trip the time was very limited and all 8 of us were heading towards talakkad in bikes. May be a second trip to the place will help me spend some time in the temple. Also these posts are meant to help someone who is planning to visit the temple and that is why the route is given in the top.
