Exploring Ahmedabad, Heritage Walk; Part:1

Hi, there: ) How are you doing?

This weekend, I went on to explore the 'heritage city of India'- Ahmedabad. Yeah! I went on the heritage walk this Sunday. It was real fun, plus I got some really amazing shots on my way, which I wanna share with you guys now :D

  •  So, the very first place I visited was 'Swaminarayan Temple'. This is a very beautiful live example of a bright color palette, and the interaction of colors with each other.

  • This is the 'Haveli' area, in the North side of the temple. It's great artistic appeal, that caught my eye and forced me to take a snap.

  • Remember, 'Courage, the cowardly dog', from our childhood, whom we used to meet everyday on cartoon network, after our schools, during our lunch times?... Well, I found his house! Lol, Just kidding :p 

Actually, this was some random house, which I accidentally  found and then I laughed so hard upon co-relating with my favorite dog 'Courage' :D

  • This is a "bird- feeder". Such bird- feeders are installed all the way round in Ahmedabad. There, some water, and food is kept, so that birds feed themselves and no bird catches heat-stroke even in such high temperatures, as, 50 degree Celsius!

(Mr Pigeon wants to play too!)

  • This is one of the pillars of  'Kaala Ramji Mandir'. Beautifully carved. Notice those figures of deities, carved out there, and don't miss the intricate details!

Village Diaries, Part: 2/2 (Color Play Photography Edition)

 Hi! Hope you guys enjoyed reading my last post. So, here’s the second edition to that one.

The previous one was based on the achromatic/ neutral color scheme photography, and now this one is somewhat different. It’s the color play in photography.

Here, please try to notice different color schemes, and how they are captured in the frame.
Let's begin.

  • Bright and contrasting colors brings life to anything. They look playful and attractive, and give a lasting impression on the mind of the viewer. For instance, notice the combination of red & blue, and also red & green in this photograph.

  • These were the cotton threads used for weaving. Together, the attracted me, and I couldn't resist myself from clicking their photograph. These colors also bring a sense of balance, asymmetrical balance, to the whole snap, thus making it look more artistic and aesthetic. Bright red with subtle green is always a good option.

  • This one is purely the warm color scheme. Notice the variation, gradation of one color to another, and how they are blending together in the eyes, sans any effort!

  •  Again, the bright, complementary and playful colors are the main attraction. Also, the placement of the objects is very interesting.

  • (This is how these colorful threads are wrapped around the wooden bases, so that they don't tangle later, and it is easier to work with.)

  • Obviously, how can we forget the cool color scheme? I, honestly, never knew that before, that the combination of blue and brown looks that good together! This photograph is of one of the very-typical kind of area from an Indian village. The composition here may not be that good, but I am so in love it's colors, & that's the reason why I am sharing this with you guys.

  • This photograph, because it has some emotional values attached to it. "We were just walking past the roads of the village, when these children asked us to stop and click a photograph of them, and they even posed for me :D After getting the picture clicked, they were really glad and contended, with those bright smiles on their faces. Seeing them happy, made me happy :') " *happy tears*

  • The color contrast of the sarees of the women, to the background  is beautiful. Here, again, bright color is contrasted with subtle shades.

  • I tried to capture a glimpse of the culture of the village in this picture. The draping of the clothes, the household and those big, bright, warm and welcoming smiles, that makes you feel homely :') *sobbing*

I tried to cover almost all different color schemes through my clicks, but still if you feel I missed on some point or other, or I should post more snaps regarding the subject, do let me know! : )

Co-incidentally, today is also the festival of colors, today is 'Holi' in India. So, I wish you all a very happy and colorful Holi. Best Wishes. Cheers! :D
