Photography – Shades & Shadows

This week Ann Christine has invited us to share pictures of shades and shadows for the Lens Artist Photo Challenge # 152.

I am presenting a snapshot of pictures from Jaipur and Udaipur, two famous cities of Rajasthan, India!

A peek into the play between the Sun, shade and shadows which make an interesting story.

Folk singers delighting the crowd with their soulful singing!

      Thanks Garima. I absolutely agree with you. Traveled to Rajasthan a couple of years ago. Was truly in awe of the rich cultural heritage, monuments and cuisine they showcase!

    These pictures were absolutely beautiful. I especially loved the ones where the falling of shadow caused the light to appear in tiny spot patterns. I also enjoyed seeing more of these cities. Thank you so much for sharing!

      Thanks Pragalbha. Digital photography has eased the process of clicking pictures a lot. So there is lot of scope for trial and experimentation.
      Ah, yes it’s always nice to see the amazing and vibrant side of India. It’s absolutely beautiful 😊❀️

    I enjoyed the personal silhouette and pigeons most. Shadows, I have found, are exciting to me though I’ve never been able to articulate why.
