Busy. Madurai

Busy. Madurai, originally uploaded by entrelec.

Although the work is manual and appears to be quite grueling. This photo by Joel 'etrelec' shows the capacity for velo-trucks, or cycle utility vehicles or whatever you want to call them, to increase mobility in areas of dense population. The photo was taken in a vegetable market in Madurai about a year ago. Joel is a great portrait photographer who's photographs are uplifting and quite candid. Looking at his collections is like taking an anthropological journey through the countries he has visited.

Back-view Bollywood #17

Back-view Bollywood #17, originally uploaded by Meanest Indian.
