Greetings from Pink City once again. 

Hope this picture finds you in the best of your health and spirit. 

Oh wait a minute, that's how I used to write the opening lines of a letter when I was learning letter writing in my 8th Grade in St Xaviers School Jaipur. 

Anyways, I am pretty sure that you are definitely fine :) for the massively negative Lunar Eclipses have passed and even the very recent Solar Eclipse. 

So with those behind our back, lets smile and be merry for a while :)

OK, so as you can see I am back with a Black and White Minimalism Shot of The Inverted Light Triangle

Yet again, these walls belong to Jawahar Kala Kendra, 

haha well NO.... this time it is Jantar Mantar, Jaipur.

What prompted me to take this shot was the Inverted Light Triangle being formed on the wall high above. All thanks to Sunlight/ Nature.

You see its difficult to find Triangles, and I consider myself lucky if nature hands over one to me :)

The Camera Kit I had that day was my Canon 600D and the 100 mm Prime Macro Lens. 

The composition is pretty simple to comprehend, I just followed the rule of thirds here, on the right, left and at the top of the frame.

and Bam the frame is ready. 

This is Core Minimalism as I like to call it.

For its done using Simple Geometry, of course Black and White and Light and Shadow contributes  nicely to the frame aesthetics.

Hope you enjoyed the shot.

Have a Good Day / Night

Another LookUp or Looking Up Minimalist Shot taken at Jawahar Kala Kendra.

Whats special here is that I showed the contrast between the Curves on the Front Pillar (on the right) and the Straight Lines in the background ie the Roof. 

To get both the foreground and the background completely in focus I shot this at F/22 aperture value. 

I have recently upgraded to a full-frame camera aka Canon 6D Mark II and I am having fun with it.

I don't know why but these days I am taking more of Monochrome Shots.


Take Care and Good Night

What we have here is a Minimalist Photograph of a Towel Drying On A Clothesline in India on a Yellow Wall.

This was shot at Chandpole Bazaar Jaipur. 

I took prior permission from the Shopkeeper before clicking this.

I never showed him what I clicked by the way. And there is a good reason for it.

Well, If I would have showed him that I was shooting just the walls and not photos of his hardware shop (which he presumed would be published in the next day's newspaper, as I look like a news agency hired photographer), he would have probably not allowed me to shoot, thinking that something is wrong with me. 

I mean who takes pictures of walls? Yes, some people react this way.

Anyways, Talks aside, I kept it very simple yet again.

I left ample negative space to the left of the frame. 

The Yellow Wall is the Highlight here of course.

Also Note: The Colorful Towels contrasts so nicely with the single colored wall. 

Hope you liked the shot.

Thank You.
