What inspires you to blog? This is the question asked in the wordpress photo challenge, Inspiration.
Photography of course, along with exploring new places, getting lost in thoughts watching sunset. Here it is… collection of some of the images accumulated over time, all taken at different places at different time.
Sharing this picture for this weeks photo challenge : Thankful
Sometimes the pleasure of creating something is such a great that it gives you pleasure long after that moment has passed. Off late, photography has given me many such moments which is unexplainable. Sometimes when you are looking through the camera lens, you see what others cant, and that is the beauty of it.
The contribution of the photography far out reaches the joy of just clicking a passing moment and saving it for a lifetime. It helps in understanding life and people. It allows you to converse with your self and the outside world. Ever so thankful for all the positive changes it brought with it in my life.
This weeks photo challenge in wordpress is Foreign. I am taking a little liberty this time in my interpretation of the same and posting a photo which is little different than what I post regularly here. I have edited the image in Picasa, I was not really sure what I wanted to do with this photograph but in the end after some wild experiments, I ended up with the photograph which looks like this.
I like this picture for its unusual tone and different feel, which is more like a painting. Also, posting here few lines from my friend which I think suits this picture…
फलक ने की थी अदा परवाज़ जिनको,
वोह आशियाँ की चाहत में कर चलें अपने परों का सौदा |
This weeks wordpress weekly photo challenge is Mine. I am posting here one of the indoor clicks which I took some time ago while reading a book.
Books and the whole experience of reading is an symbol of solitude for me. And the experience is what I truly cherish. I am very possessive about my books and share a very special relationship with all the books I read. Since the beginning when I started reading books I have habit of marking and noting down views and my comments in the margins of the book and by the time I finish a book its all the more important for me. I rarely share my books.
Isn’t it odd how much fatter a book gets when you’ve read it several times?” Mo had said…”As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells…and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower…both strange and familiar.
This weeks wordpress weekly photo challenge is Solitary. I am posting a photograph from one of the street shoot at Mumbai.
The Flora Fountain area around Churchgate station at south Mumbai is famous for second hand book stall on the street. This is the area where you can get used books on almost any genre, category at reasonable prices. If you are lucky and try enough, you might end up getting some rare, vintage and out of print books also.
This man sells the book on the same area and is immersed in the book himself, aloof from the surrounding.
