Just yesterday, over at Cardnial Guzman’s, I noticed a very interesting challenge that completely had me going if it weren’t for the high temperatures here in Delhi. It’s hitting 40 C and it’ll only get worse. But then I remembered this particular photograph. This was taken on my recent trip to Chandigarh (I’ve posted pictures from it here, here, and here), and I had to post it.
Last night I posted about the squall that hit Delhi day before. A common summer occurence, it uprooted a few trees here and there, caused traffic jams, power-cuts and brought with it refreshing showers. Powerful winds flew my dustbin a couple of houses away, and I had to fetch it before it flew in the neighbouring plot. (Note to self: The dustbin is not made of gold and has no Harry Potter connection whatsoever. To put it simply, not worth venturing out in a storm.)
Later though, when the sky cleared a bit, Delhi witnessed a most beautiful sunset. Here are some photos from the same.
Which one did you like best?
Oh, also, if you know of a good watermarking software or site, please tell me. I’m quite sick of picmarkr.com. It is excruciatingly slow.
I have a fascination with lights. All kind. There’s something about them that photographs well. I do not wish to analyse what makes them so fascinating. I find them ethereal. ‘Nuff said.
So, here’s a collection of photographs of some light sources.
1. Evening Sun
2. Candles in a Bowl
3. Turned On
4. Blue Butterfly
6. Captive Flames
7. The Victory Lantern
8. The Phosphorescent Cinquefoil
9. Flowers in a Lightbulb
And just some random shots of the sun I took from the train while on my way to Jaipur.
12. Hide and Seek
13. Burning Bright
Which one is your favorite? Do you have any suggestions what I should photograph next? Just leave a comment. Thanks.
Above the hills, along the blue,
Round the bright air with footing true,
To please the child, to paint the rose,
The gardener of the World, he goes.
– Summer Sun; Robert Louis Stevenson
Wonder how long the rapture will last
How long young Sol its spell will cast
At crossroads, we await consequences.
