At Vadi beach.
At Vadi beach.
From Vadi, Kollam.
The overcast sky above and the blast of colours in the beach area below seemed to me quaintly paradoxical. There was some lyricism about the entire setting, a kind of quaintness (I already said that), tranquil contentment.
From Shreyas Folk Museum premises, Ahmedabad. Edited for effects.
The peacock (look closer if you haven’t spotted him in the photo) seemed to love posing for the cameras. I wished I had a better camera to capture the serene majesty of the bird atop the brightly flowered tree. But I had to make do with an 8mp mobile camera and a photo editor.
Edited. I have a quarrel against yellow for some reason, yet I couldn’t resist admiring the yellow flowers that hung like tresses on the sparsely green tree against a clear blue sky. The original photo didn’t capture that beauty, but looked like a screaming yellow twig of a tree. I have edited all those colours out, so I’ll leave it to your imagination how it might have looked like.
A view from a train. A chapped, sun-dried terrain, yet amidst the rock bed of some non-existent river, the promising black-blue depths of water …
(As a rule, I never use ellipses. However my poetry here, in case you didn’t notice, has surprised me so much, I must make an exception.)
This photo looks disturbing to me, perhaps because there are so many unanswered, incomplete problemos in it, such as the headless tree on the left, what looks like a tree that has buried its head or tail(?) in the sand, a tree bending over to peer into the water, and — well, that’s about it.
Taken from the Baroda Zoo, Sayajibaug.
