My obsession with birds and photography off late has given birth to these pictures.
Sky dropped the diamonds,
Sparkled blue, revived the greens;
How! Heaven dreams.
Lately, I started my photography adventure with my basic DSLR camera on manual mode. Mind you, I had purchased this camera about five years back with a tonne load of enthusiasm and since then, it was tightly sitting inside my camera bag.
Covid lockdown gave me some time to explore my hobbies and that’s how I embarked on this journey. I had a camera but no clue of its settings and no knowledge around its technicalities. All I knew in this camera was to use Auto mode, I would dread using manual mode and if ever I used it, the picture quality with the poorly used setttings would irate me and within a few minutes I was pushed back to the beloved Auto mode.
Not anymore, I am continually learning different aspects of photography, some technicalities and it excites me more than I ever thought.
I’m happy to share a few photographs here and would love to hear your feedback.
Hope you liked these. 🙂
I stayed in Phoenix, Arizona for a couple of months, back in 2015. I was reminded of Arizona by one of the posts today on WordPress and it gushed me with loads of wonderful memories of the beautiful desert.
In my mind, desert was all sandy brown, full of sand dunes and perpetual sand storms. Arizona was a bit of all this and so much more beautiful than a regular desert. I dug out some pictures from my phone and thought of sharing a few here.
This posts brings lots of happiness to me and I hope you feel it too. ❤️
Today was a tough day. It was pretty exhausting both physically and mentally. And emotionally tiring to keep yourself cheerful in lockdown, it’s been more than a month since it started.
As the poignance of lockdown was drowing me, I heard loud rustling of trees and howling wind. I stepped outside to behold the blue sky turn sepia. It was picturesque. I continued gazing at the sky as I sat down.
As I sat there, peace seemed to seep into my skin. I let my bones, flesh and soul soak it. This is exactly what I needed. With the wind, my thoughts began to flutter from my one moment to another. My mind was going to happy places.
In spur of the moment, I started scrolling through the photo gallery of my phone. Photographs have a way of transporting us to the feelings we had in the moments they were caprtured. With thousands of photographs in my phone, I chose a few that symbolize a happy moment for me. Here they are…
I’ll add some more to it..when I have some more time in hand.
