It is a beautiful morning with the sun shining rather brightly, reminding me that summer is on its way. But walking around the lovely houses in the French town Pondicherry, the landscape is coated in shades of pastels.

If there is a town that is made for street and mobile photography, then it is Pondicherry as the French town Pondicherry gives you some great colours and textures.  
A window to the past
 The city is drenched in shades of pinks and peaches and am not just referring to the bougainvilleas in bloom.
The pinks of Pondicherry
Kissed by the sun – walls of Pondicherry
 I have my Honor 6 X,  my new toy with me and I am playing around with the dual camera  setting in it as I walk around French town Pondicherry.

Pondicherry is my childhood haunt. For someone living in Madras or Chennai, lets go to Pondy is a weekend refrain. When ECR or the East Coast Road came up decades ago, it was a pleasure to just go on a drive.
More street art in Goa
It was a simple ritual – Head to Pondy, soak in the beaches, walk along the streets, head to the ashram, chill in one of the cafes, visit Auroville and just head back home.

Sometimes we stayed but the it was the journey that became the destination for me. ECR always had more of a charm than Pondy alone. 
Art galleries and theatres galore in Pondicherry
However years later,  I rediscovered Pondicherry. I went to the backwaters and beaches, discovered its Roman connections, stumbled upon Arikamedu, saw some ruins, ate some crepes, watched some performances and plays, including “Theru Koothu”, walked around the Tamil quarter, did a lot of walks with INTACH and explored a Pondicherry beyond the guide books.
French heritage of Pondicherry is seen in the architecture
But it was the French town Pondicherry that beckoned tourists . Walking on the familiar streets yet again, I decided to capture the moods and colours with my Honor 6X.

I am a huge fan of mobile photography and the photographs on the posts have been shot by the Honor 6X. Most of the houses are now homestays and hotels
Fascinated by the gates and doors
The best part of the Honor 6 X camera is not just the camera but the battery for me.For someone who is constantly on road trips and is on the go, you need a phone whose battery does not give up on you. Mine did not for about 36 hours as I drove from Chennai to Pondicherry .
