This Diwali, in pictures 🙂
The daily post weekly photo challenge in its latest challenge asks us to take a photo of what satisfies us. My first thought went to my books. And I won’t lie and tell you I have read the lot that I have, the satisfaction springs from having them, and finding comfort in the fact that one day I’ll pick up one that I haven’t read and will gain a new experience at minimal effort.
Photographer Lignum Draco gives us the option to play with the word ‘unusual’ and interpret it as we want to.
I took this picture and was fascinated by it. This mirror at my grandma’s place no longer serves it’s purpose and I think the next time I am here, it will be completely ravaged.
This week’s photo challenge is about anything that derived from the theme ‘unusual’ .
Lignum Draco shares his brilliant photographs of monks in bright attire as opposed to the surroundings that are in start contrast.
I am often captivated by the wrath of time on living beings and structures alike. Sends the message that nothing is immune to rot and destruction. When I look at this flight of stairs drenched in rain, the decay makes me think of all the times I have climbed them, during the twenty seven years of my existence. And that makes me realise how I am losing myself to the years too.
These starry nights,
For as long as I remember,
Lying on our backs- you and I.
We have been around these faces peering in and out,
Of photo frames,
Like shooting stars that disappear,
Before you could get used to them.
And long enough we have danced to the songs,
That have been around us,
Swirling and swishing like skirts on a loop.
I know we have been around like travellers on a time lapse,
Moving too fast into doom,
Yet each day such an excruciatingly endless wait to it.
I often wonder, when I travel that these structures have been here for years and shall be here for many more, but be witnessed by someone new everytime the train chortles on, seen everyday in a new perspective!
