The Invisible Highway [Jan. 24th, 2006|12:22 pm]

Simple patterns
Simple patterns: fallen leaves, long shadows with the setting sun, at the Kamat hotel in Udaipura, on the way back to Bangalore.

It is amazing to see people walking on the left edge of the road(national and state highways), with their backs turned, vehicles zooming past them at 100kmph. They define their own space of a few feet at the edge and keep to it, an invisible barrier protecting them, walking without care, for the vehicles are just a blur, a fraction of time, unimportant, irrelavant. For them the highway is their backyard, for them the highway is invisible.

Inverted Coffee: Coffee in inverted cups at Shimoga, airtight.
Power: Power lines on the way to Jog falls, the road twists and turns but the power lines remain visible for a long time.

We took a break while coming back to Bangalore on Sunday at around sunset time at the Kamat restaurant in Udaipura; got out of the car to the beautifully long shadows of the fallen leaves right next to where we parked, got the camera out and clicked that one.

not very common in Bangalore but seems to be very common as you go towards north Karnataka.

Neato! I like your eye for geometric shapes and use of white space.

I too completely agree, even the arrangement of the 16 photos in that 4x4 grid seems to have been intentionally arranged to give a different look.

Thanks. I have been using 4/5 column grids in all my posts, the photos are in reverse chronological order.

Thanks to that it looks very pleasing to our eyes:-) Like little postage stamps arranged in a book.

That is flickr providing all the different sized images, even the square postage stamp sized ones :-)

The first pic is neat though i feel it is not very pleasant to the eyes due to its colour composition.

that is the color of the grey cement blocks lit by the light of the setting sun!

The light is hard and not soft which makes all the difference
