The Daily Post Photo Challenge: Muse

” So what’s your muse — what subject do you turn to frequently, more inspired each time? ”

Nature inspires me the most, especially the Sun and how it changes with the passing of the day. These photos were taken early on the 28th morning.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Blur

We can see the River Swarna flowing towards the Arabian Sea, from the hill sides of our place. These are blurred views of the scenery.

The Daily Post photo Challenge :) Fresh

These photos were taken last year in October,  during the end of the monsoon season in our village in the areca garden. Channels are made for water to flow to all the trees from natural ponds. The water is fresh rainwater. Our grandson enjoyed himself .

The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Wall

Earlier walls in our rural places  were built with laterite stones. They were not cut into  a definite shape. They were just kept on top of each other to the required height. If they were not stable, a small stone was used to fill the gap. Now such walls are not built. But those which were built decades ago still survive and they look beautiful. The feeling of aging gracefully comes to mind when we see them:)

The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Symmetry

Symmetry (noun): the quality of something that has two sides or halves that are the same or very close in size, shape, and position; the quality of having symmetrical parts.

For this challenge, share an image of symmetry. Don’t limit yourself to architecture — you can bend this theme in any way you’d like.

A portrait of your twins? A window grille? The yellow lines of a busy road? A row of sharp points along a metal fence? Let the world inspire you.

Temples are a very important part of our lives. There is a feeling of serenity , peace and reflection. Everything is so symmetrical. Maybe that adds to the feeling.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Scale

“This week, play with scale. Insert something into a scene to highlight size: your two-year-old in a field of flowers. A dime next to the huge cinnamon roll you picked up at the bakery. Shoot the giant pile of laundry making your couch look tiny by comparison.* Snap a picture of naturally occurring elements, like a Great Dane and Chihuahua together at the dog run. Share a photo from an airplane window showing us the plane’s engine against the ant-like background of the ground below.”

We, human beings look so small in front of a tree:)

The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Express yourself

Today, we challenge you to show us what “express yourself” means to you. It could be the delightful, gummy grin of a baby grand-nephew, a message of love written with a biplane in the sky, the clenched fist of anger and frustration, or even a lunch with an attitude. This topic is wide-open and I can’t wait to see what you do with it. Have fun!

I loved this photo of my father with my grandson in evening sunlight coming in.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Serenity

The waters of this lake in our place seem to be Serenity personified.  This is a man- made lake in our place. Long back, mud was removed to make tiles. Over the years this lake took shape. Our rains start in June and buy two months, the lake is full, the depth is about 100 feet. By November the rains stop. Now the water level has decreased a lot, but it never dries up completely.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Shadowed

This photo is in my parents’ place, among the cashew trees. Sunlight and the shadows of the trees give  a different atmosphere to the whole place.

It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good”
