MyMysore : Closing shot

Blogger leaving town.

Making a fresh start :   Bitten by the Photobug.


Then & Now

I made this cowdung wall a  reference point  as I started posting photos  reflecting everyday life in Mysore. I had then expected that the wall would be gone before long,  giving way to real estate development.
Re-visiting the place on D Subbaiah Rd. this morning I found the wall was  gone, though not much else has happened by way of development.  The place is still plastered with cowdung cake.

And this is where  my Mysore photo blog comes to end.  For I am planning a move from Mysore, to  another city.

Those who wish to stay in touch would find me at Bitten by the Photobug.

Karanji walk

A lady by the lake , in meditation. Took in this shot during  the Karanji  Photowalk lined up  by Mysore’s  young photo enthusiasts  led by Kiran on a fine May morning.

A different ballgame

It is evident from the photo that this patch on the campus of Baden Powell School in Mysore isn’t used for playing basketball.  In fact, the  space  is often rented out to event managers for  exhibitions  – handicraft, home appliances, building materials, furniture, and a host of other consumer items.

Crawford Hall

This  building, right behind  Crawford Hall,  is no less imposing than the one  (see below) you see from the  road.

Brooms sellers

Hawkers at the Mysore bus  station.

Pavement spread

Flowers and cane sellers took over the pavement at Dhanawantri Rd. on the eve of Sankranthi festival.

Tiger’s mosque

I am not sure  if prayers are offered at this mosque at  Srirangapatna,  which has historical significance.   Tipu Sultan,  hailed as the Tiger of Mysore, prayed here.  He  is  buried not far from this mosque.

My photo for Skywatch Friday.

Goes widely unread

Spotted this signpost smack in front of the Mysore   Lokauykt office and Nyaya Niwas‘, guest house for high court judges, at a  Dewan’s Rd. traffic crossing.  Corruption  is an issue that wouldn’t go away.  As blogger Bijoy writes, ‘What would we do without it ?
