A Photo a Week Challenge: From Above
For Nancy Merrill’s A Photo a Week Challenge
If my room had windows like this, I wouldn’t mind not having a view of the outside!
Clicked at Sagrada Família, Spain.
Being guardians of temples for ages now would surely have turned these from colleagues to friends…
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..
Sometimes both together!! 😉
The ancient structures in Angkor Wat are more green than stone, more alive than dead.
The Road Taken
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..
Tropical Rain Forest
For Jennifer Nichole Wells’ Color Your World Challenge: Tropical Rain Forest. Fits the theme color-wise as well as climate-wise. 😉
Ta Prohm: before I left
While we were touring Cambodia, we had to visit the famous Ta Prohm temple. (Lara Croft, anyone?) It’s just amazing to see how the tall, beautiful trees there are one with the ancient, dilapidated buildings.
As we left the temple, I glanced back the way we came, and saw the crumbling structures, the swaying trees, the absorbed tourists. I felt like capturing it all, so I clicked a series of shots thinking of assembling a panorama from them later. I still have to process most of the photos I clicked there, but this panorama was one of the first ones I worked on! I used Hugin to stitch 4 photographs for this one, and had to use quite a few post-processing skills later ( 😛 ) to remove duplicate people and solidify ghostly ones. 😉 It isn’t a 360˚ (or even a 180˚) view, but I like how it reflects everything that my eyes saw then.
For SL-Week: Panorama.
