Through my Lens-24

Simplicity intrigues me more than the dazzle. Its amazing how beauty can be latent in the such unexpected things, all one needs is an eye to explore it. Come, accompany me on this quest to explore my surroundings and bring to you some picture purelyΒ Raw and AestheticΒ .

Here goes the picture for the week:

Solitary Reaper

A speeding taxi, aesthetic scenery and my ‘shaky’ attempt to capture the above view in my lens – welcome to the world behind the beautiful captures you see. One moment I was admiring the view in my head and in the other I was almost struggling to stay stable and press the the click button of my phone’s camera on that broken road.
But the effort paid and I got this one picture of a solitary wheel loader in the company of a solitary tree. The dry sands all over added more emptiness to the aura.

Did you notice Sunlight illuminating bits of the ‘tree and the truck’ ? That is my first favourite part of the picture. The second? Well, its that trio of monkeys perched on the top of the parked machine. Though it got out of focus due to the a imagine ruining mix of speeding on rugged roads, I just felt like letting you guys know about the third hidden model 😜
A small stretch towards my destination was covered with monkeys perched on boundary wall, trees or simply lined at the edge of the road. But alas! I could not get a picture of the tailed brats in a ‘monkeying’ car or a shot which was which was not blurred, to be precise.
Maybe some other time, till then happy few hours of this Sunday!

      Yes,Play time it could be…at least they aren’t caught in a mad race against time πŸ˜‰
      Lucky champs!They are simply content with playing hide and seek in my shot :p

      Also, I’m glad you liked the narrative and the shot. Thanks a lot!

    I find this symbolic. The dodger and the tree. One is the nemesis and the other is a victim. The epitome of the civilization, which annihilated the symbol of Nature. Sad and exhilarating! Good or bad? Very symbolic!

    Beautiful capture, ma’am!

      Yes, that was one aspect I did not touch upon in the post, though it is plainly evident. This area had lush green fields nearby but was itself barren with a wheel loader probably being used to take away the soil for production of a utility.
      Sad it is!
      Maybe there used a forest nearby this place too, because that would explain a lot about monkeys in a human settlement :p

      Thanks for looking into the depth of the picture and the appreciation.😊

      Well, that area was what you can term as ‘countryside’ with fields all around. And only people living there can tell how cool that is :p
      I cant say whether they are tamed by now or anything. But I have seen more weird scenarios when it comes to monkeys and I say they don’t attack or harm people nearby. ( I say from experience of walking on a road where monkeys dangle from electric lines.. But that’s a story for another day πŸ˜‰ )

    The other day i was talking to somebody…seems like we’ve destroyed Monkey’s natural habitat, so here they are to destroy ours!
