Spectators

The photo shows local residents watching the street on the day of the annual chariot festival around Kapaleesahwar Temple in Mylapore, Chennai (India). Just as the morning sun lights up the old buildings in the photograph, floating bubbles and flowers highlight the economic activities in the place and are seen against the traditional orange and yellow attire of the spectators, thus highlighting the historic, religious and economic significance of the locality.
