A close up shot of a lot of colorful bangles lying discarded in a field. These bangles are called ‘kuppivala’ (????????) in Malayalam, translating to ‘glass bangles’ though they are made of plastic and not glass. These were popular among all girls when I was growing up but today’s new-gen girls mostly prefer costly show-off branded stuff to these ‘traditional’ ones. Lots of colors around.
The close up shot of an Orange Ant (Neer urumbu in Malayalam) walks along a Twig, all alone. Surprising, since ants are always seen in groups. Maybe it was a scout. These Ants are like Fire Ants and pack a really painful bite.
Busy Pigeons are unmindful of the 1962 classic Chevrolet Impala among them as they happily eat their grain.
The very hot Kanthaari Mulaku or Bird’s Eye Chilli Pepper of Kerala. This is used in all traditional dishes in the state and is an invariable ingredient of Kerala cuisine to add spice to them. Very ripe and very hot and yummy! Shot in f/1.8
