Repurposed

Container
I’d mentioned a tiny container a while ago — it contained kumkuma powder in it. Now that the powder’s finally been used up, I’m using it to store tiny trinkets. (Yes, trinkets that are tinier than the tiny container.) From being a symbolic gesture at a religious ceremony to being used to store kumkuma to now — I’d say this container has had quite a ‘repurposeful’ journey.. 😉

This is the color version of the black-and-white that I’d published then. As always, I love the insightful contrasts between the two pictures!

Reflection

Reflection
One of those rare times when I actually like the result of photographing light reflected on a wall. 😉 The reflection is from a container of distress inks that my sister uses in her card-making.

What’s inside?

Container
The color version of a photograph that I submitted for one of the Monochrome Madness weeks. I like how all the glitter on this little container stands out so well in a macro shot — just one of the myriad everyday things that one does not notice usually..

What’s inside?

Container
It’s almost themed-MM time again, and this month, Leanne has given us the word ‘Closed’. For this theme, I clicked a macro shot of this small container that lies in my cupboard. Extremely glittery and adorned all around with glassy / plasticky trinkets, my mom received this along with a gift that is usually given to guests at some kinds of religious ceremonies in India.

Wonder what’s inside?

It contains kumkuma (kumkum), a powder that is applied on the forehead. Because the container catches the light and glitters when I open my cupboard, I end up using the powder now and then. Maybe that was my mom’s intention when she placed this garish piece in my room. 🙂
