The Sweeper – People at Modhera series
Modhera, Gujarat, India.

I was in Modhera, Gujarat, India during December 2011. The really old Sun temple here, built between 1022 – 1063 AD. is an awesome place with exquisite architecture. And since this is a ruined temple, only visitors were around. Since I reached there early (but not early enough for my liking), the caretaker there was still around, sweeping the place. Its like one of the cravings came to life, put on modern clothes and was taking care of the place for the fellow carvings (yeah..time to go get some coffee..).

I processed the photograph in Lightroom 3, apart from some basic processing, used BoonDoggle 2 – a free develop preset available as a part of 14 free presets from Wonderland presets.

School Kids – People at Modhera series
Modhera, Gujarat, India.

I was in Gujarat, India during December 2011 and went to visit Modhera. Modhera, literally means \”The Mound of the Dead\”. The Sun temple here was built between 1022 – 1063 AD. – there is no active service / puja there anymore since the inner sanctum has been destroyed – by various invasions and earthquakes. I spent a good four hours getting a feel of the place, enjoying the architecture, checking out the pigeons and trying to not smell the bat guano.

While I was there, a huge batch of school kids came by on a school trip. I was trying to photograph the Ramakunda or the sacred tank when they all decided to sit to pose for a photograph. I took a break to enjoy their antics. As soon as the shutter clicked on the group photo, the kids all started scrambling up. That\’s when I had to turn and take this photograph.

Did you see the bird and the mooon in the photograph as well?

I processed the photograph in Lightroom 3. I used a preset called BoonDoggle – a free preset available as a part of 14 free presets from Wonderland presets. On top of that I played around with some settings in teh basic module.

Berries and Shadows – 3

Berries and Shadows - 3

Berries and Shadows, Santa Clara, CA

One afternoon, walking from one building to the next, I was entranced by the trees which had shed most of their leaves and had lots of berries. What leaves were remaining were with the berries. This tree was casting a shadow on the wall and also on the shiny glass wall. Perchance, I happened to have my camera, and shot this scene knowing I was going to turn it into monochome…

Umbrellas

Umbrellas

Umbreallas, Great Mall, Milpitas

Bored of landscapes. Here\’s something different…nohing more to it than what you see…

Going to a mall, we were sitting out eating lunch. I happened to look up at the umbrellas, and I had to get my new E-PL3 out and shoot this. I loved the lines, the abstractedness and the RED color.
