Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things That are Hot

This week’s topic is Things that are Hot.  I’m not sure if this set has a title or not.  It is basically uses the sense of touch and sight.  You can get photos of the sun because that is hot.  Steaming food or water.  Maybe something that is hot pink.  Don’t forget the flames.

In Coastal South India, people prefer to eat boiled rice. Traditionally  it is cooked in copper vessels on firewood stoves. Boiled rice takes a longer tome to cook than raw rice. These days it is cooked in pressure cookers but the taste of rice cooked traditionally is special. The fragrance lingers in our fingers even after we wash our hands 🙂

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Yellow or Orange Flowers

This week’s topic is Yellow or Orange Flowers.  Your photos can either be yellow or orange flowers or the combination of yellow and orange in a single flower.  You can take photos of flowers, artificial flowers, painted flowers.  The thing is to have a lot of fun.

Five times a week I go to a Home for the mentally challenged as a volunteer. We make flowers, specially from Organdy material. We make from different colours. Plastic leaves and green tape for the metal stalks are used.These flowers are bought Rotary and other Educational institutions to be presented during functions.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Metal and Wood

This week’s topic is Metal and Wood.  Any photo that has both metal and wood in it. It can be a table that is made from both wood and metal or a photo of something metal and trees or logs prominent in the photo as well.  Both items need to be represented somehow.   Be creative.   Feel free to dig around in your archives for photos if you don’t have anything new you can photograph.

This is the ancestral house where my father-in-law grew up, in a small village in North Kerala. The wooden windows and the metal sheets outside. Last week there had been a religious function and all the family and extended family had gathered. These metal sheets on the ground as a low wall and as a roof had been erected for this reason, and for shade too.

Cee’s Compose Yourself Photo Challenge: Week #9 Rule of Thirds Introduction

This week’s CCY Theme is Rule of Thirds Introduction.

Essay

Any experienced photographer will tell you that the Rule o Thirds is perhaps the most essential of rules, but they probably can’t tell you WHY it works. The truth is that we don’t know, but it just does. We don’t know enough about the brain and how it works to answer the why of it.

People are going up but the field on the right, lower level adds something to the picture.

Some time ago we had been going to the temple and as we turned, we stopped to take a photo of this water tank.
