Weekly Photo Challenge – Eerie

6 Nov

I found the topic for this week’s weekly photo challenge – Eerie to be slightly tough. The challenge was to post black and white pics that have a mysterious, otherworldly vibe where the viewer wonders what lurks in the shadows. Something eerie that has a story to tell — one you aren’t quite sure you want to know.

So I kept hunting through my photograph gallery and just couldn’t find anything that was apt for this topic. And then I stumbled upon two pictures that I had clicked of Jellyfish at The Lost Chambers Aquarium in The Atlantis, Dubai. I somehow found their hollow fluorescent look and the movement of the umbrella-shaped bell and the long tentacles quite eerie and mysterious. Somehow I wouldn’t want to know as what is this jellyfish thinking.

Weekly Photo Challenge : Horizon

26 Oct

This week’s weekly photo challenge  is one of my favorite topics for photographic composition i.e. Horizon. Per its definition a horizon is the line or the boundary that separates the earth and sky. However I have always liked to  interpret it as my “Ultimate Destination” for my travel journey. It is my “Hope” and “Inspiration” as it’s that point that keeps me wanting to undertake newer travel paths in the hope of reaching that end or that point someday and with each mile or trip I expand my horizon, both in terms of perspective and places.

So today I am sharing a few pics from my latest trip to Kerala with my own new found “Horizons” –

This week’s weekly photo challenge requires us to post a photo that could be anything that says “Good Morning”. I am sharing a small part of my morning that starts with the beautiful rays of the run streaming through my windows and the sound of parrots and crows all around.

Weekly Photo Challenge : From Lines to Patterns

22 Sep

This week’s weekly photo challenge is inspired by Evan Zelermyer‘s  post on  “Shape, Line, Texture, Pattern” . Evan’s post provides insights and creative tips on creating stunning urban, abstract, and architectural images by playing with 4 elements – Lines, Shapes, Textures and Patterns.  And my take on each is as follows –

1. Shape – Evan shows a technique to create dramatic images by shooting unique shapes upwards and against the sky. I shot this autumn tree upwards against the sky, where the dry leaves and some bare branches make a beautiful image.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

14 Sep

This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge is “Inside” and our own interpretations and compositions for it. My post for this is from the Ta Prohm temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia. This is a temple complex where the temple walls and trees have merged to become one entity and it is difficult to decipher who is supporting whom. You can read my detailed post on it here.

In this complex, I found this apsara peeking through a tree trunk, such that she looked to be “Inside” a tree trunk.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Point of View – Unusual

8 Sep

This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge is based on Lynn Wohlers Photography 101 lesson on – Establishing Point of View. Hence the challenge is Unusual i.e. to show any existing location from your own unique / fresh perspective.

For this challenge I decided to present a new look of the Mumbai skyline. Instead of the traditional shots taken from Marine Drive or Mumbai Worli Sea Link, I decided to take a shot of Bandra’s skyline from Jogger’s Park at Carter Road. The traditional / typical shot of the Bandra skyline and the wild monsoon sea is as below-
