K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Best Friend

I know that dogs are considered man’s best friend. But since I don’t own a dog, I will go with the next best thing or things for me.

a) Coffee:

May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short.

Photograph of my espresso taken using my phone and edited using my Pixlr Phone app. And looks like I might need one of this today. Monday is never my friend.

b) Books, Travel & Nature:

The world is a book, and those who don’t travel only read one page.

I used two photographs taken on my phone. One was that of my Kindle Paperwhite and the other one was of a Sunset I took during a drive in Bangalore. I used Pixlr on my phone app to do a double exposure but instead of doing it on the full photograph, modified the sunset to apply to only a part of the photograph of the Kindle. I kind of liked it because it combined all three elements into one.

Monday Blues

I am not a big fan of Monday, ever. I can’t show you how moody I become on a Monday. Anyways, since we have a holiday tomorrow (for Vijayadasami festival) I am feeling bright eyed today 😉 inspite of being a Monday. So for this weeks Cosmic Photo Challenge, I decided to use the photograph of my brand new ‘very bright’ blue shoes that I bought for the Chinnar trekking. I am not the one to go for such bright colors in anything. But I picked this one for a change. They are really very very blue. I photomania-d it and made it look like I am inside the water. I like that it (shoes) matched with my very blue jeans and the whole vibe of the photograph also turned out to be bluish.

PS: Taken in Chinnar during our trek. First photograph is my attempt at waterfall model. There wasn’t much water in the river so it was little difficult to try it. But nevertheless I did try 😉

 

Through the trees

I have this habit of trying to photograph the Sunlight through the trees or in other words called as Komorebi. ( Komorebi is a Japanese word that roughly translates to “sunlight shining through the leaves of trees.”) During our trek in Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Munnar, Kerala, India, where the sun was at its high at 9 am, I tried that and it didn’t come out as well as it did in another komorebi shot. I couldn’t see the outcome of the photograph well with the sun on my face and I didn’t want to slow down and try again because my friend was almost half cooked by then. But when I used that not-quite-good photograph and applied some effects from Photo Mania, this is what I got.

And I kind of liked the outcome and the way the effect went well with the photograph.

And oh! here is the original

Miracle of lace

“Two Trees
A portion of your soul has been
entwined with mine
A gentle kind of togetherness, while
separately we stand.
As two trees deeply rooted in
separate plots of ground
While their topmost branches
come together,
Forming a miracle of lace
against the heavens.”
― Janet Miles, Images of Women in Transition


Posting it for SL-Week’s photography challenge for this week, which has the theme: Ground.
