I would never say no to visit any local market wherever that might be. That’s a place where you get to see the “unseen” and the feel of the locals.
Chalai market is nothing new to me. Even then during every visit to Thiruvanathapuram if I get a chance I will rush to go. This is where you go with a couple of big heavy duty bags and all the shopping gets dumped in to it 🙂
This market has so much character even when the vendors try to get your attention by calling a specific person- “kanadi chetta” (hello brother with the glasses) “chovuppu shirt chetta” (hello brother wearing a red shirt) I find it really interesting as you get a personalised invitation to their stalls 🙂
Oh! by the way all these shots are created using a (Samsung galaxy mini) phone camera.. and am sure the pros must have guessed it from the very beginning of this post:)
