The dusk went away slowly and it was time to lit up the lamps inside the house to have the dining.A tin lamp was lit up on to the dining table .Utensils were ready for serving the rustic supper.The lamp was not bright when lit up ,gradually it came brighter as the night grew darker.When the eating was over and the night was dense and darker, the lamp shone brighter enjoying the delightful night…!
Still-Life shot in daylight within the household with utensils,vegetables and fruits using my NIKON600D with an 80-200mm Zoom during the sunlit days of the past years summertime.No flashes are used but the natural light coming through the windows and grills….!
In the noon the lake found calm in the gentle air that blew out of the leaves in a peaceful pace and the surface of water remained pleasing to the reflections from the banks…! A leisure boat was at rest near the tree that kept itself blissful in the pleasing wind under the sunshine of the noontime….!The banks awaited the visitors with colorful vessels to move around…!
In the lakes eastwards to the Arabian Sea , the boats travailing and fishing find their postures on the move ,the rest and the rush after fishing in the noon,afternoon and in the evening….,
The contrasting red and blue made the fishing vessels into a fluorescent sea-bird,A bird that shoots out of the waves with catch and colorful wings…, The ethnic cruises pleated in bamboo-panels and Palm-leaves found their trails across the deep blues bordered around with dense green backgrounds of the hot-noon vegetation in the lakeside…,The ripples shone bright and the banks rest under the dark shades…,The backwaters frilled in coconut palms found dozing against noontime hangovers of the dredgers..,And the Kites flew holding the wings ahead, afar from the dozing banks……!And the yards close to the banks breathed in silence !And made the shades more dark and deep in dense deep greens…..!
The shore took rest in the wind that resorted in the shades of the trees in the peace of the sea that waves away the Day…! The vessels in the sea went towards the shore away through the branches waving in the quiet wind that was gentle on the coast that kindle the evening spirit of the land….,
In the bench beneath the shades of the small leaves, a pair took a rest beneath an umbrella in Pink…!
Monsoon began in the Tropical South of India; the yards and orchards are getting wet and the spirits of the monsoon rains fill up the vain plains of the land and plants; the backyards and courtyards also getting the momentum and thrill of the powerful touch of the rains….!The streams blushing out through the yards make a thrill to the consciousness of both the past and the present ! The orchards remain dense and the gardens felt the fantasy of the blooming clouds and the blossoming earth…!!
Among the shades of Blue , there were blushing Green shades reflecting the face of a Man who was among the flourishing fields of romance, recreation , redeeming passions of life and rejuvenating spirits of earthly life…!( The Performance depicted the story of man undergoing the friction and fascinations of manly realms of the real and the fictitious aspects of human passions posed against turbulance of Time)…The green shades are from the classical style depiction of manhood in its dance drama version of KATHAKALI which was performed in the late hours of the dry Nights of the summertime) !!!!
The night expresses itself through the eyes in red restricted by the squares of dense black ,surrounded by the frills of white and the red overlaying the vigor of sensuousness and power of life that pulses in high ranges of luminosity and depth of passion that adds more and more beauty to the majestic black that frames around the eyes….of the face of the Night…( this is a way to incarnate the expressions of the night with its quality of passion and senses emerging through the face of a character in the classical style of dance drama format of KATHAKALI,of India ) …!
It does have the vastness of the earth, the watch ability of the time in front and the effort some strength of facing the forces at its reach..Sometimes it is vigilant about what happens around and most often highly conscious of the avenging human interactions that coincides with each other during the hours of consciousness and the losing aspects of morality and impulses of a human being..
An avenging watch of the time….!
By the end of the collective process of human interactions of thought and emotions, it dissolves itself into the dense black bordered by the thick white and red lines of life that highlights the power of thoughtfulness and memory powering over the passion of the senses…! ( The Images are from the Face painting and facial expressions of the character in RED depicting the quality of Night that I shot in my Canon 500D, digital SLR, from the classical theater performance of KATHAKALI )
