Photography – Interesting Objects!

This week Patti from Lens Artist Challenge #182, invites us to post pictures of interesting objects.

Life at times amuses us with very interesting things, perspectives, formations or man made creations. If we pause to look around, we will find a plethora of unusual objects around us from our everyday life or travels, that pique our interest.

Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph, not searching for unusual subject matter but making the common place unusual. ” Edward Weston.

I have brought together a few clicks from my archives which catch the eye with their fascinating allure.

These natural boulders seem to have perfected the balancing act with élan.

The creation above and below both were clicked at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur, India. What story, was the artist trying to convey here? Would love to know what you think of them.

The famous bronze statue by Gerhard Marcks depicting the “Town Musicians ” located in Bremen, Germany. It was erected in 1953.

Such an inviting seating…at a café in Goa!

Photography – Seen Better Days!

This week’s host Tina invites you in exploring places and things that have seen better days!

Vagaries of time

tale of withering beauty

skeletal whispers

Back then, I am sure this typewriter typed at lightning speed, bringing out emotions on paper!

What a beauty she must have been in her hey days!

The green elixir today dies a slow death at the hands of man!
Ah, it must have dressed many a beautiful ladies back in time!
The primeval soul of the ruins, today holds many a secret within them!

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!

Photography – Focusing on the Details!

Lens Artist Photo Challenge #146

This week, Patti invited us to post photos of the details from one subject ( a person, place or object) or many subjects!

My theme for the above is pictures from my kitchen escapades!!

Experimental escapades bring out a melange of flavours

some are a sensory delight, while others disappoint.

Sizzling pans, crackling spices, the whir of the blender

orchestrate a palate, to tingle the taste buds

focusing on the details, is a tested recipe for a gastronomical feast!

Some of these pictures are clicked by my daughter.

Choco chip cookies
Healthy veggie salad
Strawberry, Mango and Chocolate truffles
Brownie
Summer Delight
Savory muffins
