Though my phone has been my primary camera for a few years now (and by that I mean what I shoot most with), I’ve always used it on-the-go. Most phone cameras till recently were meant for just that. Wide-camera shots, with lot of editing required. So it fit travel really well, but not much else….
We’ve to explore more about getting to Mahabalipuram than the place itself. We start off post-lunch from Karaikudi, wishing we had a better meal. We skip the palace visits and more to make good time, and luckily within a few kilometres, we hit the actual highway. And by that I mean the 4-lane / 6-lane roads with proper dividers that we’re accustomed to in Tamil Nadu.
Except this is a major road that connect Trichy and Chennai, and honestly, it feels like driving in a main road of a city sometimes. Bikes, cars, bullock carts and more make home on the highway.
