Sometimes throbbing with vibrancy of life and then fading into dust; change is inevitable. A journey from dawn to dusk; a cycle of a caterpillar; a miracle from form to formless.
Sometimes visible to the eyes and sometimes…
…changing and flowing subtly, taking a new course every second like a river.
Thus, Heraclitus said, “The only thing that is constant is change.”
My interpretations of grid in various forms as – lattice, criss-cross, network….
…from Taj Mahal
natural criss-cross in the bush
…another view form marble lattice
Beneath my feet lay gravel and dust to a church.
I had no idea how this photo would turn out after clicking. I had clicked this photo for two reasons 1) I wanted to click these pebbles, and 2) my fingers were twitching.
After uploading, I just loved this photo for it’s symbolism.
Beneath my feet some stones rested.
Above me, a gigantic canopy extended.
Ahead, a voice was calling.
I walked, stood at the threshold.
Interior was a sound of peace.
I stepped in.
Abandoning for a moment;
Outside, were my sorrows and pain relaxing.
Brie from wordpress asks us to be up close and personal or present macro shots for this week’s photo challenge. She says “Macro photography allows us to see the world in a new light. Some of the best macro subjects may appear mundane at first — things you’d normally pass by without giving a second glance — but get just a little closer and there’s often a hidden beauty to be discovered.”
I love taking macro shots specially of mundane things. Even during vacation, I shift my gaze from serene landscape to something ordinary. Some days when I feel sad, I take out my gadget and we go out on a stroll. In city life, it’s difficult to capture landscapes but easy to zoom on people or things. I would stop saying anything here, and let you all enjoy the collection of my macro shots.
Nature is an art where artist is The Creator – endless, infinite and great. With azure outstretched canvas and land majestically sculpted He lets them meet at the horizon.
I love rivers and the running streams. I love the way water flows in them… through the rocks and pebbles and dried tree trunks. River to me stands for the way of life always flowing never stopping – always learning and growing- till it meets its end. Water a true symbol of strength and force also symbolizes calmness and life-giving energy.
Nature and everything in it symbolizes life, beauty, creativity and uniqueness to me. Nature is not only a teacher but a true artist as well (always at work creating something marvelous). The tree below looks like a human to me trying to reach for the sky. I had other photos as well to share but because of an error was not able to upload.
Light a symbol of hope and goodness.
Gone are the days of old cameras when they had limited film rolls. With the advent of digital cameras and even camera phones photography is not only easy but fun.
For an amateur photographer like me, it means to be able to click without any after or before thoughts attached to the moment.
I had my own myths related to photography…like you need to travel (possibly to the best of the locations), you need to capture beautiful things or should I say perfect things only. But I have broken my own myth shell.
Now I’ve understood that you can click amazing photos without traveling as well. Although, if you travel that’s great and if you don’t then don’t let your photography skills catch rust. Just take out your gadget and start clicking – remember it’s a digital camera, what can go wrong with that. Nature itself gives us a variety of things and sometimes it’s not perfect.
I not only look for inspiration in the most beautiful and perfect things but also mundane and imperfect ones. Now, I just like to capture anything as I see beauty in everything… beauty is everything.
I was getting an HTTP error while uploading some photos. Can anyone help me with this? 🙂

As a kid I loved rains. It meant making paper boats, dancing in the rain, making a splash in the puddle of water (of course, it’s best when not done under parental guidance), and listening to the pitter – patter of the rain drops. Rain also meant rainbow.
Rainbows always conjured magical powers of some kind to me as a child. Back then I had no idea about “the pot of gold”.
Now I associate these seven colours with the 7 chakras in our body. Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel. These centers were named as such because of the circular shape to the spinning energy centers which exist in our subtle etheric body, the non-material energetic counterpart to our physical body. There are seven main chakras in our body. The colours are the same – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Each chakra is associated with a certain part of the body and a certain organ which it provides with the energy it needs to function.
