Temporary

I was temporarily offline for almost 10 days because of network issues. It got resolved yesterday. I could have blogged using my phone, but I have never been a fan of that. Checking blogs through the phone is not very convenient for my eyes. So here I am, back again and this time for WPC I am going with the photographs from an exhibition we went here in London. We like to visit these exhibitions which are free and of course temporary in nature that showcases elements belonging to a very specific topic. This time it was “Illuminating India” It was interesting and it was fun to see an autorickshaw on display 😉 Here are some photographs from that event.

WPC: Glow

It has been a while since I played around with a photograph. Since my half-term school break started today, I thought I will use the free time to edit an old photograph from Fort Bragg, USA and make it eerier (all those talks of Halloween costume party in School has got to me, I guess) I loved this small Country Inn B & B where I stayed. It was so cute. I took a photo of it at night when it was glowing. With this edited version, I feel like it looks spookier and can be a character on its own just like a monster house even though it is far from it. (just imagine the two windows on the top floor as the eyes and the main entrance as the mouth…) Don’t you think so?glow2.JPG

I would definitely stay in this place again if I get a chance to visit this lovely town again.

 

WPC: Textures

The Texture is one of the most fundamental elements of three-dimensional art. It is an element that needs to be carefully considered by sculptors. The texture is related to the material used–marble, wood, clay, bronze, brass, iron. steel, or plaster, for example– as well as the process: casting, carving, construction, or welding. In addition to the material and the process, the final surface treatment offers even more textural possibilities.

Here are a few photographs showing various textures.

Went for a walk after our yoga class across the Putney Bridge. This is the HDR (low res) view of the River Thames.

WPC: Wanderlust!

I have not traveled anywhere out of the UK lately.  But during the Easter holidays, we had a picnic day wandering in Brighton to absorb the warmth of the Sun, even though the winds were slightly colder (not as cold as today in London) and those massive clouds were trying to scare us now and then.

We like visiting the museums which have free entry. So we went to the Docklands museum one of the days. It was not crowded at all and was quite relaxing. This is the photograph of a paper tunnel that was kept on display.

Last weekend, we went to Stratford to meet a friend not knowing that West Ham was playing Everton. My plans for ‘The Slide’ got shot because it was fully booked 😦 (next time!)
