A Photo a Week Challenge: Birds

A few mornings ago I heard a lot of chirpings and twitterings outside our kitchen window. There is a flowering plant just outside and I saw a number of small birds hopping from branch to branch and also sucking from the light cream cloured flowers. I rushed for my mobile:))

A Photo a Week Challenge: Get Your Green On

Green is the colour which we see everywhere. But is is so very important, I just cannot imagine a world without the colour green. There are so many different shades of green. For that matter all colours have so many different shades. It is fascinating:)

A Photo a Week Challenge: Thirds Rule

In photography, we are taught many rules and guidelines about composing our images. One of the most basic is the rule of thirds. Cut your image area into a graph of nine (three vertical lines and three horizontal lines) and place your subject on one of the lines, avoiding the very center of your plane.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Perspective

A few months ago we had been to a temple of Lord Ganapati in a small hamlet. This small temple rests beneath huge boulders. Long back there were only the idols and about six hundred years ago a king of those times built walls for the idols. This temple is being looked after by the same family for generations.

Perspective – The appearance of things relative to one another as determined by their distance from the viewer

A photo a week challenge : Lights

There is a beautiful lake in our place. It is man-made. Long back mud was removed to make bricks. There are about hundred acres of place here. Over the years water filled in during the monsoons and overflows by October. When the rains stop the water level goes down but it does not dry completely even in May. There is a walking track around the lake. We go there often. Beyond the lake there is a tall building. Yesterday we were fascinated to see the reflection of the sun from the glass panes of the building on the water, shimmering lights .It was beautiful.
