temple flowers

Different types of flowers are strung together, marigolds (orange) lillies (white) others I don't know and used often when people go to temple (Hindu). The necklace of flowers is placed around the dieties neck or loose flowers at their feet. Flowers are also used in times of puja (prayer) or decorations for weddings. I always like how they smell.
This street near my house is a perfect example of all the commercial activity that habitate the streets of India. In the background there is a barber, fruit and veggie salespeople, also found on the streets may be a shoe mochi (cobblers) and sometimes an ear cleaner - no joke!
