Photography journey

Friends,

I feel like being creative all the time and this new channel of creativity is giving me a lot of happiness. I know i am not great at this venue yet. But the knowledge i gain by doing it is what inspires me. Just like I started writing about 3 years now, I have improved my ability to describe. My ability to improvise a scene has shown a lot of improvement. I started to see everything differently.

Same here with the photos, I started this a year ago. Dreamstime is a platform for every photographers who wants to try and put some pictures in there. They do have guidelines and not all the photos get pass through their quality checks.

I thought two day ago, why not I try this. I had some pictures taken when I went to Fiji. I uploaded 40 pictures for their consideration. I got 30 approved. I couldn’t believe it. See, until unless you give it a try, You never know. I am very happy already. Not even one sale. But I am content.

Definitely a motivation has sprung. I will take more pictures now for sure. I like to tell stories, content etc. This will be another medium for me to convey my messages to society. There is a saying, pictures can convey more than words sometimes. Just like my motto, I will only post positive thoughts. My pictures will be only positive vibes as well.

Thanks for the support and hope you will like my creativity. Share and support.

Life Sprouts- A Poem

Deep there somewhere one day

Someone plants a seed in fertile land

Hiding there sometime waiting to sprout

Underground darkness and heart beat rhythms

One day the call came and pushed us out

Saw the sun and shine in our eyes

Felt the wind first time on our skin

Don’t know where we are and what we are

Saw many weird beings around us making weird noises

Around us upside down moving in two and four feets

Few months passed by trying to mimic them

Colors and taste changed around us

Weird beings became normal for us

Giggles and laughter started to make sense

Relationships starts to make sense

We call it life and what a blessing to experience.

Diverting thoughts…

I cannot stress this enough guys,

During this hard times and not been able to go to work. Every one reacts and cope differently. Mental health is very important for us. To keep us healthy we need to channel our thoughts to a positive nature. Lot of people who are extroverts will find it extremely hard to stay at home. All these free time, they do not know how to utilize it.

This could be the time one can actually try something out, which you may have been wanting to do for a long time. Don’t get me wrong here. I am not talking about something you need to go out and be in public. You want to do that project at home. But no time. Now is the time isn’t it. You may have been thinking to re arrange that garage. This is the time guys. This is it. Do it. Do not sit in your room and kill your time or watch shows after show. Down the road you will get depressed.

Mental health or issues can be a silent killer. No one should go through that because of this pandemic situation. I said, find that project. I did. The pictures I am going to post in this blog are taken by me. Well, I did not travel any where. These are from my own yard. I always wanted to take cool pictures. Let me tell you guys. The time I spend taking these picture and the outcome, has taken over my thoughts to a positive nature. I did not worry at that time. So if you all can find that something which can take your mind off. I promise we will have a healthy pandemic time period. I pray, those who are struggling can divert their thoughts and be healthy. I am sharing my thoughts here to help other. And my pictures.

I also writes once a while. This does help me as well. People say it is easy to say, but it is hard to understand actual mental health problem. I admit. It is not easy for an outsider to understand the pain they go through. But we can definitely help them by suggesting solutions. May work for some. If I can be a help for one person I will consider myself blessed. So please if you like this share to someone you love. May be they could share this to someone they know. May be, not photography or writing. They may surprise us with a video or some form or art they love. They may find that energy, that spark who knows what. But at the end of the day, they are not de motivated or depressed. Doesn’t that sound healthy. Lets work together. Share this and help others. I am doing my part and encouraging those who read to share this to support a healthy society.

When Snow Falls…

Year 2000, First time I saw snow. I have already lived more than two decades in this beautiful earth. I realize then, universe have many hidden talents. Some you will never discover through out your life time. I was so happy, I still remember vividly, it was in the evening around 7 pm. I walked out. First time I felt snow fall on my face. Happiness at that moment is hard to explain in words.

One may wonder, why I call snow as nature’s talent. The way it is formed, I am always amazed by it. The white color of it. Unaltered. It is most purest form of everything. You want to hold it, but you cannot keep it for ever. It will melt. At the same time what happens to that beautiful white color. It vanishes. As soon as we touch them the purity goes away.

When it falls from sky, even the nature stands still. I always felt the presence of some power at that time. You can see the world is glowing at that time. The color of the sky, the light around the buildings, let it be night. Let it be morning, it has got some sort of presence, like halo. There is peace to it. I love watching the snow fall. Mind you, I hate cleaning it later.

This winter, we had quite a bit of snow fall. We had trouble getting to work. We had a lot of difficulties. But how many of us actually went out for a bit just to enjoy what nature has given to us. For those who did not do that, I am giving you all a few glimpses of it. Hope you enjoy my clicks.
