In an evening of 2011 summer,I got the golden opportunity to capture these color balls ,in my Canon 500D Cam. with a Sigma 300mm lens.The bright evening lights of that summer had an effect of multiplying these images into multi-colored bubbles that enriched the tension of the subject.In brief, it was my first and foremost stepping stone in the category of ‘Abstract’photography remarkable for its aesthetic quality and natural lighting techniques ….!!!!
Near the tropical coastlines in India,by the finish of the last December, there was a little bit of moist air around the last days of 2014 and the backwaters remained idle with the boats anchored aside the banks ..!( the shots were taken in my Canon 500D and Nikon 600D, dSLRs…)
The time was past noon and the lake remained moody in wait of the year ending eve.The distant looks of the boats kept away were also provided a finishing touch to the days passed as the reflections in the lake amidst the linings of the waves underlined the completion of the sails past ..and looked as if in conceiving of what has been left ahead in the days coming forth.
The greenery behind remained stark in that air and resembled a thick curtain that highlights the color of the vessels in the foreground…and proved as a shelter for some tiny boats too..which found in complete rest on the lakeside…!!!!!
The facial make of the divine circle of fire in the classical performing art form of KATHAKALI in Kerala in India is highly fascinating one. This is an incarnation of the weapon of Lord Mahavishnu in the mythology of India.This represents the true spirits of vision and amazing power of virtue that overpower the lust and the vice. This is the version of the facial make of the character in a play of the legend in praise of the Lord.(What is seen in the image here is the painting I did in oil on canvas last year,depicting the face of the character as depicted in the format of the classical performance on the stage of KATHAKALI).
This time in April I have been able to be in the blessings of Nature because there was the Kingfisher on my branches again in the last days of the month …thus I have managed to have some more wonderful images of the bird again in my Canon 500D with my prime 400mm lens of Canon.
It came to me all on a sudden while I was dozing in my coach for an afternoon snap.I was awakened by the flapping sound of the wings..then launched on the branches with a shake of the wings and chatting with the beaks on the strings of banana leaves.Anyway I have managed to catch hold of my camera and tried to place myself safely in a distance behind the viewpoint of the bird and got these awesome pictures that would be an asset for my entire life as a bird photographer!!
Taking in some water from the pool beside, it came back on to the branches and spent some moments there in a peaceful and convenient sit for some sound shots..The shot I had received next were of some inclined views of the bottom line of the body and that of the beaks….
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…!
In the last of the last December , the South -West coasts of Kerala in the Southern Part of India were found a little bit moist and the lake sides kept gloomy due to the humid air as if to say farewell to the year passing by..
While viewing from the shore, the evening lake was less noisy and there were not much business on the lakeside and away..I stood there with my little nephew on the shore holding my DSLR (Nikon 600D) waiting for something good enough to get shot upon..
Meanwhile heard the sound of the waves arising with the moving away of a vessel from the lakeside departure point. It was the local ferry boat starting from the yard for its routine homeward trip of the end of the day..!
The still life depicted here are from the ethnic kitchenware and fishes taken out of the cooking-yards of a countryside of south India.The clay potteries,metal spoons and pans in the lay out of the dark carpets in the kitchen scene add an element of taste and texture to the still life of the Pisces in the clay tray.They are onto the cooking table and then to the dining soon..The eyes and the body of the fishes still shine and proclaims the essence of life that had left them.It could rather be described as the essence of life or the essential life in short…(I got all these in my Canon 500D in the last years)
