WAP4 #22624 at ERS With a “Shadow” Livery

Erode shed’s WAP4 Electric Locomotive with road number #22624 pulls an empty rake on shunting duties at Ernakulam Junction Railway Station (ERS). The engine used to be bright red, but the paint had faded into bright orange. the evening sun shines brightly on its side until where the the corrugated sheet of the platform shelter suddenly cuts if off, playing a nice shadow designed livery on its side.

Love Under a Wiperblade :)

A Goods autorickshaw driver got creative with a red plastic band to express his love (towards who?). Twisted the band into the shape of a heart and strategically positioned behind the wiper blade while sunlight glints off the windshield. Taken with a phone camera, the Nokia 6500, hence the poor quality.

The New Tata Safari Storme – In Your Face!

The front end of the new Tata Safari Storme presented in an “in-your-face” view. Note the projection headlamps and the prominent metal plate proclaiming “STORME” which they could have done without. Taken at the Prerana Tata showroom at Lalbagh Road, Bangalore. The best Safari yet, it could do with some more refinement, still. Read the whole review here.

Filthy Kaloor Bus Stand, Ernakulam

The filthy Kaloor bus station in Ernakulam (Kochi), Kerala. Despite all the natural beauty the state has to offer, cleanliness of the place is literally (pun intended) the dumps. And bus stations act like magnets for filth, be it private bus stations or KSRTC bus stations. An exception is the new Mobility Hub at Vyttila. Most buses now start from there instead of from Kaloor.

Empty Inner Ring Road, Bangalore

The Inner Ring Road in Bangalore connecting Koramangala and Madiwala and beyond with the Old Airport Road and Indiranagar, all empty and flat out, devoid of traffic. Though named “Ring Road, there is no ring, it is just a straight stretch of road from Koramangala to Domlur and is usually chock-a-block with traffic and jams caused by vehicles coming from the Embassy Golf Links (EGL) tech park. On this Sunday though, there was no one around as all the techies decided to stay at home with their cars.

KPN Bus Timings, Backwards.

A flex banner at the Ernakulam office of KPN travels showing timings of their buses departing Ernakulam to Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Madurai, Pollachi etc. In case you haven’t noticed, the picture is taken from behind the banner at night and still everything is visible perfectly. Good printing work I say! 🙂 (Timings might have changed)
