    1. Great to see your comment Marc 🙂

      This is a narrow foot bridge over a backwater to a small island. It’s at some reasonable height for boats to pass under it, so people will have to negotiate a sharp inclination at both ends.

      I was at one of the banks and waiting for people to pass through my frame with the rainbow as backdrop 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Sue 🙂

      On seeing the rainbow as a backdrop to this foot over bridge across the backwater, I stood at one place and waited for people to pass, and luckily I got this sequence inside the frame 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Priyanka 🙂

      I planned to frame the bridge first, then came the rainbow, and I changed my plan and as people were passing across the rainbow, I just had to choose from 🙂

    1. It’s so kind of you, Divya 🙂 I am really really happy to see such words of appreciation…

      This world is such a beautiful place, there are pleasant surprises you could expect to see from nature, anywhere… if you have the patience and right eyes, you could capture them with your heart…

      Have a beautiful day 🙂

    1. It just happened, Janet 🙂

      First I thought of sharing this interesting bridge from a different angle, then came this rainbow, then people… then we have a story to tell 🙂

      Thanks a lot for stopping by and have a great day ahead 🙂

    1. You are absolutely right, Amy 🙂

      The comparison between the older generation and the new one, the change of pace of life, the failure to appreciate nature… it all happened in a matter of seconds, right above my eye level at a different angle 🙂

      Thank you so much for your support, as always 🙂

  2. Beauty of nature is left for you to appreciate, I guess. You are so true. Sometimes in this mad rush of things and one’s own priorities, we do not enjoy small things in our life – nature among them. Such a beautiful rainbow so close to them. Alas!

    Your photos have a wonderful story, which makes so enjoyable and makes one think. Superb!!!

    1. Dear Suyash,

      Whatever I mentioned in my replies to the above comments is all there here in your observations…

      So you got 100% of what I wanted to convey 🙂

      Thank you so much for your time, my friend 🙂

  3. Okay, so before I read your words – I soaked up the three pics. and super cool how you give us the frame feel with two turquoise shirts – not sure you could have planned to have this – but the striped turquoise shirt is to the right in the first two – and then that last shot has the plaid turquoise – and the “rushing man” in the red shirt is still in all three – as is the lady – and each of their stances in each photo has the action and feel of their stride and demeanor –
    and then to read what you wrote – and to see the rainbow come into view even more – this is fantastic. so unique a capture and such street photography and social psychology lesson you give us too.

    and yeah, I think sometimes I have missed a lot by rushing myself – maybe not a rainbow per se, but what a message here – 🙂 ❤

    1. You missed nothing here, Yvette 🙂

      Your comments reflects the essence of these images…

      I was there to explore this beautiful backwater and this long foot over bridge across a backwater.

      The angle of the bridge and the way people of all kinds negotiate it during their daily commute was my interest.

      As I was watching the action from a lower angle, on the banks, this rainbow appeared and I had this idea of framing an image with the rainbow as backdrop,
      I stood there waiting for people and this sequence of images got captured in a matter of seconds, and thank god, I have a story to tell 🙂

      I am sure, here, I got something interests you as well, right?

      1. most definitely did! and it is so cool because some people would stage something like this – and I am just curious – but how many pictures did you take? Just three or were there more?
