The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Depth

” This week, share with us your take on “depth” — you can take it literally, like me, by showing something (a dense forest, your lawn after a blizzard) that suggests volume, a distance between surface and bottom. Or go with a more figurative approach: use a deep color palette, play with your image’s depth of field, or highlight a person, a place, or an object to which you feel deeply connected.”

Temples are a very important part of our lives. Every temple has a pond in its premises. They are an important part of the temple.

This photo is of the pond near the temple  of Goddess Mahishamardhini, not far from our home. The feeling of depth is apparent.

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. The Covid has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.

  1. I think there is a real feeling of the depth in the water of the pools, especially in the second image where the reflection of the sky enhances the feelings of depth and serenity.

  2. Very creative interpretation of this week’s challenge. Temples. It’s a place where we ask the heavens for forgiveness and blessings, where we express our innermost thoughts silently. Deep indeed 🙂 I am sure that temple was also very beautiful architecture-wise 🙂
