Early last year, during the summer month of April, Elke Frotscher travelled with us and a crew of photographers to Tamil Nadu, ambling through the tiny lanes and quiet corners to capture those fleeting moments of bliss from the everyday lives of its denizens.

A fishing village in Pondicherry waking up just before sunrise.

Feet in warm water, watching the waves roll in and the fishing boats go out at 6 in the morning.

An evening stroll in Brihavdisvara Temple. built entirely out of granite, fully realized in Tamil architecture, surrounded by a colonnaded prakara.

In the ancient city Tiruchirappalli, right by the temple, tucked away in a quieter corner

Driving through the palace area of Thanjavur, wondering which stories these houses would tell beyond the hints and statements given by their ornaments.

Rooftops and cloudscape in Pudukottai, where we got to experience an afternoon of luxurious Chettinad lifestyle.
