Weekly Photo Challenge: Walls, Tanjavur Wall Painting

The Big Temple of Tanjavur is a world of it’s own…

I am restricting this post to something special, on the inside ‘Walls’ of this temple complex, the world renowned Tanjavur painting

Flavours of Fort Cochin: Part-2, The Reward

It was a day, the more I tried to get close to my destination, the farther I spun away…

But, by end of the day, I was rewarded with a handful of images worth all the effort…

Please check out “Flavours of Fort Cochin:Part-1” to see what I planned for the day and where I ended up with πŸ™‚

FortKochi-0013As I got down from the Junkar, it was 3 pm and I had a couple more hours to explore Biennale.

But, as I started walking to the exhibition halls, I got lost in the color around and started capturing the flavors of this beautiful place…

FortKochi-0023FortKochi-0024FortKochi-0025I was really overwhelmed with the variety and quality of the art and craft being showcased.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Rule of Thirds

There is something really interesting about rules in Photography.

You don’t have to learn these rules and apply them. Once you start taking visually appealing images by practice, you would have already followed them unknowingly, “The Rule of Thirds” is one of the best example.

Let me share a few images taken during my travels in South India (Mainly Karnataka and Kerala).

Weekly Photo Challege: Twinkle

The unexpected December rains made everything looks so fresh and vibrant…

A morning stroll in the garden was so refreshing and given an opportunity to take some images for this week’s challenge.

The attempt to capture the wonders of nature was a realization that nothing is even remotely comparable to the wonderful camera created by nature itself,Β our eyes πŸ™‚
