Repeating shore temple post for Stamps of Chennai Series. I had always wanted to take this pic of the shore temple with the waves in the foreground, a duplication of the stylised version of the shore temples that we see in many drawings and in the stamp above. But the sea and waves were simply too far away from the temple and separated by a wall of boulders. Finally, when this image happened I had no reason to be happy. This picture was taken on December 27, 2004, the day after the tsunami.
