Frame in a Frame.... by Devi

Posted on 2020-09-27

As I was coming out of this Temple, this lone woman talking to some one at the top of her voice attracted me. I decided to take a shot. She was asking someone to hurry up, as the Temple would close soon.
Sure, they did come running- a young mother dragging a little boy and carrying a baby in her arms.

Lord Ganesha is our favorite God in our family. And it is a common faith among many people in India to offer prayer to Ganesha first before starting any new, work, project or business. And ths picture of Ganesha was so appealing to me as a fine art and colours. I chose to post this image on the New Years day with my greetings and wishes.

Lets do something

Lets do something by Chetan

Posted on 2018-07-28

This reminded me of a conversation from the amazing movie Nebraska.
He - What is it that you want?
She - Let's get married, or lets split up. But lets do something !!

It's important - doing something. Like talking, just share the concerns, the doubts, the conflicts, and rest assured it will end the problem. But what do we mostly do ? We start avoiding any conversation, go back to our cocoon and suddenly all the negative thoughts surround us, making the situation all the more worst.

On fire

Gurgaon, India

Flag of IN

Captured in Farukh Nagar, one of the villages near the millennium city and IT hub of India - Gurgaon. I and a friend were a little bored of street photography in the city, so this time went a casual photowalk to click some rural views. We were driving around in the car when we saw fire in this field.

On getting close and asking the farmer standing in the field, he said he is burning the crop stubble. Although restricted by the government in India, the farmers still practice burning the stubble, that remains after harvest of grains like wheat. He was a little skeptical and thought we were reporters, but agreed and allowed us to click some pictures. My intent was to get the fire against the evening sun, when out of nowhere this person with two horses happened to cross the field.

I like the image for its elements - evening sky, fire, a man and his two horses. Together they raise this curiosity - what's happening here, why's there fire, what is the man doing in the field with horses

The Drying Heads by Sugata

Posted on 2019-09-21

This photo and others in this photo series show different stages of idol-making in the dingy lanes of Kumartuli (clay-workers' colony) in Kolkata, India. These idols are then carried to different locations all over the city for different festivals, most importantly the festival of Durga Puja, which is the five-day worship of the Goddess Durga in October. Visiting Kumartuli at this time fills one with awe and respect for the artists skill, as well as with joy for the approaching festival.

Mom & KId by Devi

Posted on 2019-04-13

I was rushing to the window every now and then to see if the Mom would lift her bum and let me take a shot of her eggs. No chance! !Was I disappointed? Yes.
But surprise of all surprises, I heard faint "cheeps" and I started rushing now to see the lil one. And lo! It came out and I took a few quick shots. Very soon the Mom sensed the human presence near by and ushered the kid under her wings! Aw!! Thank Heaven for small mercies. The zoom did not disappoint me !!

Human creation

Human creation by Chetan

Posted on 2018-10-17

Our hands can make the most beautiful creation, but can it match one having life? Life and soul that only nature can give. On one hand we worship god, and on the other hand we are killing the very gifts god has given us - animals, trees, air, water.

I am no more my reflection

I am no more my reflection by Chetan

Posted on 2018-05-08

The mirror shows the real you. The real you that is compassionate, helping, not judging, loving , caring and all other human qualities. But at times, out of obligation, out of expectations we try and become what we are not, and its then that the mirror becomes a necessity to see the real you.
Change yourself - Be the real you.

What do you see when you look at yourself in the mirror? (Captured near Yamuna Ghat, Delhi, India)

Haystack rice crop harvest cart sunset village

Haystacks at Sunset - 5 of 5 by Sugata

Posted on 2020-01-18

I shot this series of photos (five posted here) showing stacks of harvested rice plants in the fields at sunset. I came across this scene quite unexpectedly while visiting a village in West Bengal, India and instantly remembered Claude Monet's "Haystacks" series of paintings with a similar subject. So I went back to the place everyday and shot these photos as a tribute to Monet.

Turbulent times by Chetan

Posted on 2018-11-08

Belief gives us strength. It has the power to allow us to stand and win against something that our mind would otherwise surrender to.
Yet, sometimes there is a choice that we need to make, between beliefs and facts. And polluting our rivers is one such belief, in fact the most pressing one, that we should stand against

Last one standing to save the environment

Last one standing to save the environment by Chetan

Posted on 2018-03-11

In Gurgaon,India, construction of new urban area's is always happening - be it commercial or residential. On one such morning, it so happened that these two trucks were facing each other, and there was this tree standing on the road divider. I immediately saw this opportunity to show ill-effects of uncontrolled construction where this lone tree appears to warn us, that if we don't care for the environment now, nature will try and fight back.
