We’ve switched to celebrating quieter Diwalis for a while now, and only light diyas (earthen lamps) and paper lanterns, but I do miss capturing pictures of the sparklers. 🙂
For Lens Artists Photo Challenge #23: Celebrations, hosted by Amy this week.

… A Glorious New Year. Happy 2018!
An abstract version of a picture that I clicked of a paper lamp.
With a gleeful breeze around, it’s fun to watch light peeking out from a swaying paper lamp, but a tedious job to capture it.
So far, I’ve been able to enjoy the warm glow of diyas without the ear-splitting din of firecrackers. I hope the rest of this Diwali follows suit, and that all Diwalis end up like today.
Ceiling lamps clicked with my phone at a dimly-lit coffee shop while waiting for friends.
I also like the glowing bright cuppas showing in the background — I almost didn’t notice them since I wanted to capture the lights initially, but when I did, I decided I would post-process the picture to darken the atmosphere further to make them more visible.

This is one of the pictures I clicked on a boring day indoors that I decided to spruce up by experimenting with photographing the lights at home. Bright lights and low exposure do make for some art! I swear I never really liked the texture of that wall much before I processed this photograph. 🙂
