Natural Thirst Quencher

Thirst | Chennai | 2017

Today I want to share this portrait out of my archives, again from the Streets of Chennai, India. The lady just had treated herself to a coconut to quench her thirst on this very hot and humid afternoon. Beats a Coke, doesn’t it?

Image taken with a Canon Powershot G11, specs are 1/160 sec @ f/4,5 and ISO 200. As usual when on the streets I shot in P-Mode.

Tomorrow at 4:15 am my taxi will pick me up for the 30 minute trip to the airport. Then it’s off to Portland via Amsterdam. Looks like I trade the Nuremberg snow for the Portland rain. Right now I’d take Chennai over both 😉

Have a good week!

  1. Great image! I would say happy travels but I think you know the drill. 😋 I hope you find a little sunshine during your trip Marcus!!

  2. I did some work in Saint Lucia a few years back and the highlight of the day was to stop on the way back to the hotel and get some fresh coconut water from one of the street vendors. I was told (and I don’t know how true this is) that, during WW2, they could inject coconut water into the vein instead of plasma. I could drink coconut water until the cows come home and even when the cows do come home, now need for cow’s milk if you have coconut water.
