Travel Theme: Close-Up.

This week’s travel theme from Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack is Close up. Instead of a macro approach to this theme, I have chosen a slightly different approach. These were all taken at the annual Nehru Trophy Boat Race snake boat race in Alleppey, in Kerala India.

Some handsome young police officers had a close – up view of the finishing line in one of the final round of trials. The races go all day!

It is heart warming to see many sari clad women’s teams participating in this this huge event. Close- up view of a local women’s team.

Those who can park their house boats on the lake get a fabulous close- up view of the finishing line.
