Bitten by a Butterfly

It’s a small butterfly on a rugged baby guava. It’s closed wings are compact and looks like a 3D eye blended on it—a delicate art of nature. It’s surrounded by some minute plants with the tiniest of green leaves I have ever seen, growing on a worn-out red brick. Two other fallen leaves seem to […]

Inside a Teak Forest

I’m now inside a Teak forest. I take a peek at the peaks of teaks here, and fall back in wonder— about its wilderness and richness, about its green-ness, and about its liveliness… Or rather, the richness and liveliness it imparts on me. The time is noon. But doesn’t look like noon, is it? The […]

Drops of Blood

It’s real blood, but blood of a large fish, dropped on a paper. But, the rhythmic arrangement of it’s edges looked like well placed tiny tentacles all around the drops. It seemed apt for this week’s Sunday stills theme ‘From the heart’. It’s hot. It’s life. It’s bloody. Linking with Sunday Stills.

Tiny Waters

Water is an amazing liquid, ain’t it? Dew drops on a crimson-colored car on that early morning, at an angle, it looked like this. The water simply added its glow & reflection to the background. The second one is the bubbling water, from a water-fountain having lights underneath. I liked it’s near-gold color. This is […]
