Nuns at the Kochi flower show 2017

This time for a change, my focus was on people enjoying the Kochi flower show 2017, rather than on the flowers. I am honing the skills of the second shooter becuase many primary shooters would have already captured the beauty of flowers. This group of nuns were really enjoying the flower show, and I could not miss it. Here is the result.

The cycle tour of the Churches

Christmas week, and the best possible I could do was to do a cycle tour of the nearby churches to see and photograph the cribs. We visited the Puthanpally and Varapuzha churches with almost two centuries of history behind them. Then in the list was the Christ the King church, which is known for it's contemporary architecture. Then we covered the St.Thomas church in Varapuzha, St.Mary's church Muttinakam, and the St.Augustine's church Kadamakudy.



This tour of around twenty miles gives me the confidence to plan for something bigger. Me and my cycle are in better shape now, and the climate is very good for cycling. Hope to do a longer one soon. Specual thanks to Rahul (standing behind me) for giving me company.

The local Hindu festival during the makaravilakku period.

Yesterday we had a Hindu festival celebration in our village, in conjunction with the Makaravilakku. This was the venue. I spotted it only today morning during my cycling spree. It was a great piece of art with it's symmetry and color and it looks purely Indian. It is all done by the local people. It is decorated with flowers, plantains and the stem of the plantain plant / tree.
