Mornings around Madurai

The great Henri Cartier-Bresson said, “As far as I am concerned, taking photographs is a means of understanding which cannot be separated from other means of visual expression. It is a way of shouting, of freeing oneself, not of proving or asserting one’s own originality. It is a way of life.”

As someone who has been an avid photographer for the most part of his life; the camera is a constant companion on all of my journeys. Any opportunity to step out with the camera is always welcome. Recently, during a visit to Madurai I spent a morning in the streets around Meenakshi Amman temple clicking a series of candid photos, that captures how people are #CultivatingtheWorld in their own way before the city wakes up and come to life.
