Tyre - Guys


 A typical road-side TYRE-WORKSHOP, one amongst many you get to see scattered along the Indian Highways. Taken somewhere in the plains of Madhya Pradesh, on one of our Road-Trips .
Always a hub of bustling efficiency, these 'pit-stops' can be quite reassuring (even if you do not need their services!) especially when you encounter one after having negotiated miles and miles of lonely highway stretches.

Please go visit ‘Shadow Shot Sunday at HEY HARRIET’ to enjoy the play of light and shade from all over the world.

We got new tyres yesterday....but it was in a shop in the middle of town.

It's amazing how reassuring just seeing other people can be when way out on a lonely road.

There is something quite homely and enchanting about this little sanctuary for tyre renovation! Lovely in monochrome!

We've seen many of the roads in India from our furend Marley's Blog and I can see why you need these guy's all around town. Thank goodness they do what they do!!

Pit stops are always refreshing. Interesting action photo with motorcycles that look like they are from another era.

Thanks for joining my blog. Please come back any time.

and they can be a blessing on highways, when you have a flat tyre...

Better to have tubeless tyres. In forests and other such wilderness areas, I would be happy if there are no other persons. One can trust wild animals more than humans. :)

Any sign of humanity is welcome after long stretches of none.
