Heritage

Sculpture on mantap pillar

Seen at Chitradurga Fort, a well-known site in Karnataka (the state where I live) with quite a history, and associated with legends in the Mahabharata, an epic dating back centuries before our time..

Tropical Rain Forest

Pillar stones
At East Mebon, Cambodia.

For Jennifer Nichole Wells’ Color Your World Challenge: Tropical Rain Forest. Fits  the theme color-wise as well as climate-wise. 😉

Doorways and shadows

Doorways to the unknown
For Jennifer Nichole Wells’ Color Your World Challenge: Shadow. I’m pretty pleased that this fits the theme both color-wise and literally! 😀

Graceful

Arches
High ceilings of cathedrals. Imposing, yes, but with their gently leaning arches, they’re also graceful.

For Jennifer Nichole Wells’ Color Your World Challenge: Desert Sand.

Negative stairs

Stairs
Negatives are fascinating. They can be creepy sometimes. (Negatives of faces, anyone?) But then, there are times when they can lend so much beauty to a picture. These negative stairs — I can just keep looking at them. The tiles look amazing, and the railings provide company until the stairs disappear. I clicked the original picture in the hotel that we stayed at when we visited Tossa de Mar, Spain.
