Well, these have almost vanished in TN with the govt taking over the liquor sales….nice shot (for me it is something of the past)
Awesome shot, loved the title of the pic…
Like the low angle and the serious expression in their faces .
Nice light, lots of atmosphere.
Ah, toddy ;) I don’t like it but those men seem to be enjoying it. Love the beautiful light fall and the low perspective.
Beautiful vivid colors and great capture!
Loved the lighting and atmosphere.
beautiful light, expression and smoke…. beautiful… :)
The most distinct image is of smoke curling its way up, as if one could touch it.
The shot captures the mood!
Smoke , light, attitudes make a real good and nice shot ! Phil
beautiful light! like it…:)
Great photo. The details are great, light – smoke colours…
Une ambiance bien retranscrite. Bravo.
Beautiful shot and beautiful light !
ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm smoke is cool
It’s not quite like the bars of today. At least not if you compare to Norway :-)
We had, however, some logging camps back in the 30’ies . . .
This brings back memories!
love the light and swirling smoke in blue! :-) i love most of your shots which keep coming to my inbox. today i had to had to comment on this one because of the title! my nick name is ‘Kallu’ (and i was called either Kalyani Black Label or Johny Walker in school because of the surname) and ‘toddy’ is something quite dear to most males at my native place – Malvan..so all i could do is giggle when i saw this pic right now. glad to know there’s a liquor shop called kallu! :-)
Cool guys ; ) at Toddy Bar – nice shot!
Nice shot, but what’s a toddy bar?
Homies lookin real peaceful. Bliss brother.
Are they are having a good time , or not ? :)
Good colours in the picture.
hug from me, Marie
This is a nice click. In our place also there are few Kallu Shap :) These men look they are already in “Nasha” :)
Ha! You make me feel nostalgic.
But is toddy still available in Kerala?
Love the lighting in this photo! Very moody!
I like the light, the cigarette smoke… very interresting shoot !
Nice moody shot Joshi.
A very natural photo shot.
lighting, of course, atmosphere and also the looks on their faces…very nice
Cool shot with great light, Joshi!
Great photo and love the light!!
won’t be saying anything much different than the others………..still, enjoy the atmosphere, the intensity, and the smoke trails……….
Another excellent image Joshi,has a deep story.
Nice one , never been to any of these
lovely shot !! liked d play of light :)
Nice smokey light Joshi.
Original photo. Duplicate toddy!
Like the smoke in it. Nice shot!
As good as being there! What an atmosphere!
Good atmosphere shot!
Happy Hour doesn’t look to happy.
the rings of the smoker created the perfect ambiance..delightful frame!
Sitting with their drinks in a smoke-filled room. Bars must be much the same regardless of country. You captured the atmosphere very well. Nice work.
çà fume et çà boit ambiance bar
Makes me say Ganpat chal daroo la..so very desi!
Reminds me of hindi song Ganpat chal daroo la..
Picture is so very desi!
I like how you captured the swirling smoke. What speed was that? I’m imagining the shot without the smoke, and I can see that the impact just wouldn’t be there. I know it seems like a small element but that’s what bring it all together.
I won’t condone smoking but these guys look like a couple of cool dudes lounging in a club.
L’ambiance de cet endroit est parfaitement restituée !
Great details and light!
A naadan photo
Everyone deserves a nice break every once in awhile! :)
Love the light and perspective.
Looks casual but there is a suggestion that trouble could follow.
Nice … tough to believe that’s a bar.
Light and Smoke lovely captured. Almost like silver screen.
Superb Joshi! Ohhh that light! Fabulous! Blessings, Robyn
Wow, the true mood set
Rustic in tenor ….a commoner’s delight well caught in your camera!
Nice use of light. I like the smoke
Nice! Love the light and mood here!
if that’s from a bar, then i guess that’s booze on their glasses, eh? :) love the mood of this one.
nice and relaxing atmosphere
Lovely shot, very atmospheric.
rich with atmospherics!
They look so content with life :)
Great rendering of the mood with the light smoke over the scene. I like it.
Have a nice day.
Very atmospheric with that special light!
The low angle along with the light captures the mood perfectly. Outstanding image!
Thank you for explaining! and thank you for your encouraging comments on my blog too :)
Not tasted fresh toddy in ages either :-) Very atmospheric!
Love the lighting in this shot.
You really caught the atmosphere in this one! The light, the smoke, nice one!
Absolutely wonderful shot, i love it.
