some memories of August

These are the worst days of the year in Bumm-Bumm-Bhole-Land. Hot, hot, hot in a piercing way. Still, sticky, no wind. The sunlight exhausts your eyes. So, to cool down,  ....































What I noticed only this year, and loved, were the umbrellas and the raincoats used by boys and men. Very few blacks, or khakis, or greys. Out there in all the colors of the rainbow. Very metro-sexual, hey?

Black umbrellas shouldn't even be MADE. On a rainy day, you need some color! Beautiful photos, Banno :-)

lovely photos!

and the man selling multi coloured umbrellas- malad signal? I tried hard to click him one rainy traffic jam.

Lovely. The photos all look like watercolor paintings.
How did you do that?

Banno said...

I feel very pleased with all your comments, because for once these are my photos, and not Teja's or Dhanno's.

Memsaab, I need color on rainy days, sunny days, everywhere. When you come home one day, you'll realize that.

Sur, I've never seen that guy!

Lekhni, I did nothing special. The photos are through wet windshield and car window.

I can't wait! And me too, by the way. Every room in my small apartment is painted a different---but bright and jewel-like---color :) I don't worry about small details like matching or clashing!

Banno said...

Guess what, Memsaab. My apartment too.

I think Indian men are way more metrosexual than their western counterparts- in India, u find em wearing shades of red, pink, orange and whatnot, with embroidery (and everything including the kitchen sink) on them. it may be in bad taste (often), but is braver than men worldwide- yay for happy umbrellas!

beautiful set of colours?

Banno said...

Shweta, I love the colors men wear here too. But I balk at the embroidery. On women too, usually.

Sloganmurugan, Did you mean beautiful set of colors, or colors?
