This week, we will explore different ways of framing images.

Many photographers agree on one thing about framing – that it can help direct the viewers eyes to where you want them to look.

This ‘sampige ‘ tree is in the front yard of my father’s maternal uncle’s home in Madikeri.  It was planted some time in the 1940s by his son who passed away when he was only 17 due to meningitis. The flowers are very fragrant and cream in colour.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #33: Nature

Flowers are always beautiful. They give us so much joy. Some are so simple and beautiful and others do look complicated in their design. Whatever, they are perfect. They are nature’s gift.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #8: COLORFUL

To some, each day brings a struggle to see beyond the darkness. For the rest of us, it is important to find moments of joy. We are surrounded by all of the colors of the rainbow, but it’s up to us to recognize and appreciate them. Remember, gratitude is recognized as one of the most important elements of a balanced, contented life.
So go ahead – find some colorful captures to make us smile.

A few weeks ago we were walking in one of our favourite grounds when I saw a colourful flower between the grass. It looked so beautiful. A friend said it is called ‘huli uguru’ in my language, Kannada. It means tiger’s claw. It is called flame lily or glory lily. The scientific name is ‘Gloriosa superba’.  My husband’s cousin is a botanist, he said it is a poisonous plant !!

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #7: Everyday Moments

Everyday moments are the small building blocks that lay the foundation of our lives. They make us what we are. I have just come across this photo challenge and loved the idea. Every evening we go for a walk. My mother is with us for some time. My father passed away in September 2016. My mother lives with my elder brother and family and comes to our place for a change.  Her walking friend who is 80 plus and walks regularly.
