Mr and Mrs. Blues

Today is Saturday, end of the week,and also end of the month and I feel like I'm in blues.

But with the lapse of the day, I did some great work, went to Mahua Art Gallery and got new inspirations and Feel like partying. Again, I spotted these blue flowers dancing in the afternoon breeze and evening wind. And so I introduce to you all now "the happy go lucky couple in the air" - Mr & Mrs. Blues. I heard Mr. Blue singing,(one of my all time favorite lines), for his highness( Mrs. Blues), very loud and clear into the air -

"If I had to live my life without you near me
The days would all be empty
The nights would seem so long
With you I see forever oh, so clearly
I might have been in love before
But it never felt this strong


Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You wanna know by now how much i love you
One thing you can be sure of
I'll never ask for more than your love..."

And listening to it, I realised my love will also never change.

Wishing all readers a great weekend and a bheega bheega december(chilly-willy n coldy-goldy).

Current Mood: Looking forward for the gayful moments to be back.

Spokes of Life

I was feeling lonesome the other day and was aloof from everything, into my world and i realised one truth. A colour isn't just a colour. Its conveys, many emotions,hundreds of meanings, thousands of thoughts and millions of message. The way one likes the color or a person's favorite color can depict his attitude towards life and his persona. I had heard it and slowly started feeling it recently. This is shot taken when the color pencils were found after so many long days gap and didnt know what i should do , just when it stuck to me to catch some freaky abstract shots and so did hit and trial. The world is round and one has many shades of life. This picture symolizes mankind and its varied facets of sufferings and happiness.

Name it as "Colors of life" alias "Spokes of LIFE wheel", , I assumed - "Life is beautiful" as I interpreted......

"Pink"- The color of romance
"Orange"- The happiest,gay color, stands for scarifice and cheerfulness

"Green"- The prime color of the world,the origin of life, prosperity, reproductivity, and that from which its loveliness arises.
"Yellow"- The color of creator/performer

"White"- The color of innocence and purity, peace and wholesomeness.
"Black"- The color of authority and power.

"Red"- The color of leader/promoter and of course caution/danger.
"Blue"- The color of analyzer/organizer

"Brown"- The color of earth and is abundant in nature in many forms.
"Purple"- The color of royalty, purple connotes luxury, wealth, and sophistication.
"Indigo"- The color of agility and achievements and victory.

Squirrel Kamasutra

The other day I was rushing to check my mailbox, ahem... what I saw was an ecologist's keen eyesight and of course a naturalist's way of observation. I spotted the grey squirrels into the act of sex and I observed for 25 min and more. The only thing I regreted was my camera missed it so much...I could have videoed it and taken much better shots than what I have posted. They were at a height of 20 meters on The Parkia biglandulosa tree and i kept trying all my efforts to catch a good shot of the conjugation with disturbing the actors of the great act of life.

Thanks to my Nokia N72... :) as the shots were clicked with it ....

What happened during the act and after is not strange.... the male squirrel was happily busy releasing its sperms when it was attacked by another giant big fat male component. It jumped and ran with its hindlmbs , holding the female clasped well its forelimbs and tried to hide in the hibiscus tree but fortune wasn't in his favor today and suddenly he was disturbed and abused by a couple of hoaders... A gang of 5 males(hulligans) chased the male and its partner to get the supremacy and mate with the fertile female... female ran in the front, followed by its partner and behind were the chasing gang of 5 rowdy male squirrels and screamings echoed over the branches as the fight intensified for few minutes(2 to 3 min). Down standing below the Parkia tree, and looking at the tall Parkia, I was wondering the game of life and the dominancy for sex in the animal world. Soon,after a while,I lost the track as they all dispersed in different directions.

Current Mood: Weather is really awesome @ Bangalore and am happy to post such hard effort of mine on my blog.

Owling Nights @ Fotographia

(Photo taken in Pondicherry University campus)

Its never fowl as thats a dear owl.

The Darkness fell close,
As the Sun from the east
Moved to the west,
Deep into the Arabian chest.
The twilight streched on the slope.
On the hill side,
On the forests,
Into the ravines..
On the river lines.
On the Pavements
And over the pathway...

And then it was all dark
As a black hole' mark...
The night set in...


Walking along the lonesome path, I spotted it
Sitting in the dark balcony, I noticed it
Lying on my bed, on the summer nights, I heard it
Standing in the terrace yesterday, I traced it....
While lighting the cigar,
I spotted it rushing in the air.
I got a freeze,
As it sat against the wintery breeze..

In the twilight,
it took a flight.
There came the night,
With its chest bright...
From my window, I kept peeping,
In the search if it's perching
On the tree,
And so free...
On the electric pole,
With a conspicous role.
In the dark,
Inside the park.
On the roof,
It was so aloof...
(of the manly world)

Again and again,
Now and then,
Here and there,
I saw it everywhere....
Ran behind-
As I had in mind,
to get a flick
And there I click
Once more
click flick click flick
And the final click...

A bird of the witchland..
If so, belongs to the dreamland...
Man said it evil,
Bt I feel it isn't devil
As keenly it observes,
So mostly it deserves.
There's its prey,
On its tray.
Its never fowl
Thats a dear owl.

Thaumaturgy @ Fotographia

Why such a puzzled up name...
Well the shot was like that... in the dark nights, as what was caught looked witchy and one of those kindas that can be justified to some act of wizardry and then lots of watching of Harry Potter stuffs these days... and so its like a complexed brain's dilemma..

The title stands for magic/ mirage/ illusdion and so it befits the shot taken on this diwali night.

Current Mood: Magical feel grasping me into a different world.

Happy Birding @ Morning Walks

A great poet said it-

"Sweet bird, that shunn'st the noise of folly,
Most musical, most melancholy!"

I am so excited with the flock of these parrots. Thanks to my morning walk days when i took the shot. The birds in group of 5 to 8-9 used to do every odd things( on tree branches to the eletirc wire, perching to prinning, fighting to taking dives in the sky) and watching them for couple of minutes(not less than 15 minutes, i am sure) used to be my motivation for morning walk in Sept- October' 08.

Now that winter has set in, I am sure i can spot many more new birds but I am sad as I sleep for late hours and dont get up due to cold and dewy mornings....

I regret the days and miss my walks.

The search for the Meal..

The name says it all... Butterfles esp. Crimson Rose is crazy about Lantana(an invasive species) for its energy source. The frequent visits account to just 4-5ml of nectar each time and so the butterfly keeps hovering on the flowers from branch to branch and plant to plant.

The Curves of Life

And this photo says many untold things about life... its curves, bends, dilemmas, ups and downs, strains and stresses.... But positive side is "Long way to go and better things to come up".. May be thats why mankind is alive and so is you and I.

Current Mood: Realization

A pleasant evening...

What to say about the sky.. so vast and so huge, I feel lost sometimes in the spectrum it gives out.... Different moods revealed... with different colors ...

One day it's pure-clear as water,
Other day its has the scatter...
No matter ...
However it is always better....!!

One day it's crimson red,
Other day it has white thread...
At times its brown .....
With a yellow crown.
To yellow and then blue and then violet....
It's all set..!!

Sometimes it is blue,
That is its original hue.
But never I could see green shades,
As that most often fades...
Today its the orange,
And so I feel it completes the whole VIBGYOR' range...!!


Current Mood: Poetic.

Happy Sunbath....

Tomorrow is a lazy Sunday.Its gonna be a painful day staying all the time in home and spending the day and night in that one room and I want to be set free.

Now when the winter has set in,its so cold at night (around 14deg C) and morning the sun rises lately, I feel like taking a sunbath on a place where its lonely, less crowded, and where the weather is pleasant and its all fun to be there under the sky and the sun.
