Clothes hanging to dry on a clothes line along a wall is a common sight in South India. But there are a few not-so-usual elements here: the clothes line is fastened to a sturdy wooden beam sticking out of the wall, which does triple function by also holding the sweater. The curious yellow light comes from the sun shining through an awning of yellow, translucent plastic – the same type as seen in this shot from Uzbekistan (click the image to go there):

It provides shelter from the rain as well as the sun, and for the drying laundry it is also a much better shelter than a slightly overhanging roof. But it gives everything a strange yellow tinge.

The “C-156 2011” in the title (click the image to see the enlarged version!) is what is written under the little niche on the right. I have no idea what it means, but given this shot was taken in 2010, it’s not likely the ‘2011’ part is a year…
