Weekly Photo Challenge: Shadow

dsc_7821

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!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitude

dsc_8021

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!

Dewdrops

Early morning, fresh dew, and plenty of flowers – need I say more? Enjoy these macro beauties!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Path

dsc_8866

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!

This photo was one of my first ever experiments in light painting and whenever I look at it, I find myself lost in these colorful curves.

Taken using a Nikon D7000 without a tripod using a 105mm macro lens. In response to the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spare

DSC_1850

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!
