A panoramic view of the prahara (enclosure level) of the Veerabhadra temple at Lepakshi, India – this temple follows the Vijayanagara architectural construction style. I used HDR processing for this, since the angle of sunlight and the shadows caused some variations in the pictures that made up the panorama.
For Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #35: Architecture, hosted by Amy this week.
Given that the day was cloudy, rainy and dark, wish this lamp was on and glowing!

I don’t think I’ve ever experienced absolute silence, but this one came pretty close.
I think it’s actually the feeling of bliss I experienced, away from the everyday noise and hustle, that makes me associate this scene with silence.
Does photographing architecture of times past give us a glimpse into the lives of the people in those times? Not really, or at least not completely, given that the history left behind for us is selective. It doesn’t take away from the wonders of architecture, though!
I feel that the photos that I get to click on the road to my destination turn out better than the ones from the actual destination. Maybe it’s because of the thrill of having found more moments to treasure! 🙂
This sculpture of Nandi in a regal pose, on the way to Lepakshi temple, made for ample photography opportunities..
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!
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.
A picture that I clicked of my sister’s card-making preparation from today — alcohol inks on aluminium foil. There is chaos in it, and creativity, and when she finally uses this in her card, there’s just the wow! 🙂
Base of a decorative vessel with a stem. I chanced upon this while roaming around the Goa Gajah temple, Bali. Just look at the patterns on it!
For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Yellows.
I was walking past this mirror at home, and accidentally looked at it from just the right angle — it was reflecting the top of the opposite wall (actually a low lintel.) The reflected wall is of the same color as this wall, and the mirror seemed to disappear because of that, leaving only the frame…
So out came my camera. A lovely opportunity to admire this frame! 😉
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..
… is enjoying a beautiful sunset. Even when in a crowd. Have you ever noticed how fast the sun sets when you’re looking at it! I’d to hurry and click pictures before it sizzled off into the sea. I must say I was lucky to get pictures with no people walking past at just the
right wrong moment. 🙂.
