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.

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.
