Through my Lens-30


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 and click some shots close to nature, close to me; not from those exotic locations but from my unostentatious surroundings. Some picture purely Raw and Aesthetic .

Here goes the click for the week:

A thing of beauty

Its been a chaotic week and on one equally chaotic afternoon, a thing of beauty came unexpectedly, jolting me out of mundane and bringing a smile to my face.
See how the dash of pink livens up the picture? Now that’s what a simple flower can do!
What I loved about this flower was that its petals were akin to leaves, complete with veins, but in pink. The little white bud, the only sprouted one in the whole bunch was as pretty as a pearl, having tiny petals of its own(or least they looked so with divisions and all).

But Most importantly, it added a beautiful touch to my unexciting surrounding and gave me a ‘Click-Click’ break! So, a thing of beauty is indeed a joy forever, especially if preserved in my lens 😉

I Hope you liked it too!
Have a great week ahead 😊

Through my Lens – 18


Hi there!
Welcome to my quest to explore beauty in my unostentatious surrounding and delight you with some pictures purely raw and aesthetic.

Here goes the picture(or well, pictures) for the week:

Tiny wonders

White stands out!

OK, maybe you like the clicks. Those wild flowers, in white and yellow with green in the backdrop look pretty beautiful. But is that it? Did you know there’s always a story behind a picture..behind every picture. The one for these pictures goes like this:
On one fine morning, a chilly winter mornings exactly, I found this lying on our terrace. Yes, like just like that on the concrete floor. It was a really beautiful plant, strong enough to hold along the soil it had grown in, tangled in its roots. Who would like to leave behind food whole travelling anyway. 😉

As you can expect, I rushed down to fetch my cell phone, because I had just found some beauty worth preserving in my lenses. ‘Click! Click!’, I went. But wait, where had this plant appeared from? Certainly not from any of the pots on the terrace. And It couldn’t have possibly fallen from the skies. Yet apparently, it had.
It all started when the walls the freshly painted walls of the terrace went damp with its paint coming off in chips. On probing the matter, we found the drain above that wall blocked by this wild plant. It was then consequently thrown down(from the floor above)onto the terrace where I found it. I really liked this one with its flowers and all the growth and so picked whole bunch of it and potted it into our little garden. Though the plant survives till date, its flowers are gone. I’m glad I preserved them forever in my lenses that day.

And yes, on another (boring) evening when I was waiting for my job to be done at a service center, I experimented with this picture below. Which one would you choose from the original and the edited?

I really like how the shadows converge with lights as one goes along the mundane clothesline. What about you?
