As someone who does not do photography herself, but admires some of those who do, it has occurred to me, that it isn't so much about clicking , but a lot about seeing, having an mind-eye to perceive, and lending a ear to the silent messages
The talent for reading colors, composing, and planning unique angles is inborn and a gift from SomeOne Up There.
My very talented friend Slogan Murugan just posted this capture of a forlorn flagpole holder , two days after the nation celebrated Independence Day on August 15.
The visual suggested certain religious imagery from a particular angle, and the the words simply happened.
worshiped year round
a gentle dripping
of holy water,
of a complete
on just 2 days,
stuck on a pole,
on an unravelling
amidst a gently
falling monsoon rain.
And you wonder,
where has all the bhakti gone ?
