PhotoWalk #117, Walk by the lake.

December 14, 2017

Perungudi Lake (Tamil: பெருங்குடி ஏரி) is a 50-acre water body located near Chennai’s IT corridor, Rajiv Gandhi Salai, India. It is one of the few protected lakes of Chennai, fully fenced with compound wall and pathways laid on its east and south side for walkers.
Excess rain later flows into the lake through storm water channels from the nearby residential areas. Perungudi lake is connected with Pallikaranai wetland through marsh lands spreading across Perungudi/Velachery/Pallikaranai.

This lake reached its full capacity during the cloudburst that hit Chennai in December 2015. The beauty of the lake caught the attention of its nearby residents and motivated them to start a people’s forum to protect the lake from pollution, abuse, encroachments, sewage water letdown, defecation, and water theft by registering the Perungudi Lake Area Neighbourhood Environment Transformation (PLANET). PLANET is a registered body of all resident associations around Perungudi lake. PLANET celebrated Perugundi Lake Festival (PLF) 2016 & 2017 with several art and cultural programs with a perspective of promoting waterbodies. PLANET planted several tree saplings in and around the lake and regularly monitoring its growth. TN PWD supports the activities by the PLANET.

PhotoWalk #116: Light up walk

November 7, 2017

Lights Action!

The panoply of Photography cannot exist without lights and this is what we seek in our next walk.

This walk will be unique and is one that we have never experienced before! Why you may ask?, well, we will start at an altitude of over 100+ feet whilst still being in the heart of Chennai! We will have some wonderful new friends join us and from there on we will swoop through the evening to capture different kinds of lights. Now you must be wondering where this is? Well, we will let you keep guessing!

The walk will start at 6 PM on the 12th of November and we can only promise you breath taking views of Chennai City, a chance that you will not come across very often! So its time you got your Tripods and brushed up your long exposure and panoramic clicking skills.

Meeting Point: BOT VFX (India) Pvt Ltd, 10th Floor, LEBARA Towers, Anna Salai, Teynampet. (Opp Kamaraj Arangam)
