A look at my Valentine’s day …
It was a Valentine’s day as usual and to me it was yet another day of laziness. I woke up late ,reached college late, thereafter peacefully slept a lot in unison with others at back bench till afternoon.
By the lunch break I soon started noticing the vibes of Valentine’s day everywhere around the college. It was quite a different atmosphere and for the first time in my life I felt so happy to walk in midst of a crowded walkways filled with dozens of red roses . Everywhere I went I saw the couples enjoying the time off in a different mystical world that I have long forgotten.
I spend rest of the day watching over people without interrupting anybody and it was the sole reason behind these concept photographs I took later the day using miniature couples of match sticks ….
Ignite the fire inside you…
It was indeed beautiful today and the day was coming to an end in different colours and it was a very soothing feeling indeed for me. The bright colours of sky was soon replaced with the emerging darkness and elapsing time whispered to light the lamp. Somewhere in a distance somebody lit a dim light which increased the intensity of darkness.Even i was totally tired I could still make of the many uninvited figures of shadows all around me which tried to catch hold of me. As night crawl slowly I was too tired of anymore fighting and was soon dragged into a bottemless pit of unknown entity. I tried in vain to cry my lungs out for help but no voice came out. I saw in distant a dim light and it was getting hotter and hotter as I fall .I could still see others helpless and tired just alike me falling down on and on. As the light soon engulped me I could feel no more pain and what’s left there was emptiness.
Chembra Peak, Wayanad, Kerala
This peak is a lesser known place but a beautiful place for trekking and a short 4km mountaineering . The most beautiful part of it is the presence of a naturally formed lake in shape of ‘Love’ which is regarded as a popular spot for Valentine’s day celebration. The rough terrain and presence of elephants and Fox can sometimes pose dangers after visiting time.
Do you know that the beautiful part of being a freelance photographer is travelling day after day to most exotic places close to what nature has created. We are thus exposed to close proximity of nature than anybody else.
I love the part when I have seen a new perspective for a photo which is quite enough to quench my thirst for creativity. Apart from being a natural enthusiast my attention on wildlife photography turned upside down after I sought pleasure in experimenting with social photography quite too often these days. Thus the amount of travel I have taken last year has significantly gone down. But this year I managed to take two trips out of which one was just a leisure trip with my college-mates and the other was a single trip on to the hills and I quite feel so happy to be back in my old comfort zones.Here what makes me feel like a free flying bird is that nobody questions your authority or approach apart from the nature which quite often test you with its majestic peaks and wilderness.
It’s been 2 years since my last trip to the forest district of Wayanad in southern India and my enthusiasm was rather high. But my expectations were soon down in vain as to what the forest district have turned into. The wildlife has gone down, temperature has risen, rise of human intervention in forest life have completely dissimated the image of nature and rise of artificiality is visible everywhere. I could not find happiness anywhere and feels so disturbed even with my sleep.
Was there a cry somewhere..Who knows ..As the midnight approached somewhere I could hear a cry that only few could understand, a cry to go back to past. As sleep slowly engulped me I could here a voice somewhere asking me
