Corals & Fishes

Finally, after a year of waiting, the friend of mine has added fishes to his reef tank. Some photographs . . . of the reef with fishes (the breed is called common clown).

The road in front of the temple had been clear as long as I can remember (last 35 years).  The crowd and the shops are a recent phenomenon. The crowd in front of the temple consists of devotees, passersby and the usual line of beggars lining up for alms.

As if to mirror the events in Singur, the sky turned dark before the squall. I liked the layering of the light and dark…
