Street life - Madurai, India

This photo, taken just outside of the Meenakshi Temple in the center of the Madurai, India, captures some of the vibrance of the street life around the temple. Full of compressed movement, color, and noise, life on the street lingers in the eyes, ears, and sometimes nostrils of tourists and residents alike.
