Conundrums

Nature has always riddled the humans with his own ways in many more ways than one. As someone who likes to imagine and think loud, there are myriad ways to see ,think, record and portray those as vignettes. Nature has always had its own ways of surprising us with its displays , just that we should appreciate its beauty with a rather different eye.
As Ansel Adams says "The only things in my life that compatibly exist with this grand universe are the creative works of the human spirit." it always implies portraying things the way they are not.Or we can say ,expressing them eccentrically.
Some of the pictures below are just my loud imaginations......


A stream flowing in the western ghats along the pebbles and wild grass created a view that if viewed from the top seemed like a portrait of a very old man. The hair and beard turned white due to slow shutter speed and a little blur gave it some unreal lifer. I just made it black n white so it looked more like dumbledore.


Streams and pebbles form amazing contraptions that can be given any shape as desired.Just that we should appreciate things differently.





There are some pictures where horror looks beautiful.The rock in above picture looked like a skull to me. Just seemed as if I saw some pillar outside a haunted castle. Again thinking loud , but why not try something different....


 This is a dew drop perched on the tip of a twig.The flash fired left reflection at spots that, to me ,looked like a caricature of a cartoon. With eyes, as reflection of flash, green line between eyes as nose and faint little smile. Well I hope you all don't doubt my rationality , but there are times I just love to think loud.



This is a spider web, that I colored with a flash. The greens of the leaves near the web glowed in a very unconventional way due to the flash and so did the part of the web. I viewed a shape of a person in the left side lighting up the strings or say tinkling the strings.....


Nature always has a way of expressing itself. In a subtle different manner. The contraption of a twig and a creeper in a garden made itself look like a signature of nature.The shapes of 'A' and 'S' that is...
Also there are exclamation marks too....just check out drops of rain sometimes.....here is one...


Wrath can be one more form of nature that can be expressed. The dry trees, leafless branches ,and clouds can be a perfect recipe for such a picture. 


I saw an arm coming out of the earth , showing the mankind the finger, an expression of wrath for all our misdoings. 


This is kind of stuff that everyone perceives with his own unique visions, and everyone has a difference. Every art imitates the natural forms, this is greatness of nature. Just as art and its form vary, so do the expressions and the visions. We just have to know one thing , There are no fixed sermons in stones, we can read and imagine the way we want it to be.........
Signing of for now, in search of more such visions.....
