Photography is all about lights; introduce a little light from the right angle, and you start to see something totally unexpected. I was playing with some LED lights a few days back and I thought I’d experiment with how lights interact with fruits. Since oranges are translucent and the only fruit readily available then, using them was a natural choice.
Little did I know that this would yield in some interesting shadows enhancing the pulpy texture of the fruit. A slice of orange and some twenty photos later, I got this shot. Hope you like it as much as I do!
When you have two kids under the age of six, solitude is a precious commodity. You spend the entire day being a friend, an enemy, a teacher, a doctor and more often than not, a referee; raising kids is no easy job, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
When the day is finally over and I have tucked my children in for the night, I find nothing more comforting than the pages of a book. Here’s a picture I took tonight to personify my love for the written word. Enjoy!
You start your new year, hoping that you’d write more frequently than you did last year. Unfortunately for me, these resolutions are just that; resolutions.
Even though I did my last challenge quite a while back, I do check out the weekly subscription email I receive quite regularly. This week’s challenge spoke to me, prompted me to come out of hibernation and pick up where I left off on this path. I call this one ‘The Road to Nowhere’, taken in 2013 on my one-day road trip to London.
I close my year with the same resolutions again; to write more, to explore more, to share more. Let’s see if it sticks this time!
Spare a thought to the infinite space around us and the rarity of our existence. There is no known extraterrestrial life, intelligent or otherwise; we are but a speck of dust in this ever-expanding cosmos. Never will this thought hit you harder than when you’re flying thousands of feet above sea-level. Perspective changes everything; it humbles you like nothing else can.
These photos were taken while flying over Pakistan, Iran, UAE, Birmingham, and other places I can’t even remember. Enjoy!
