Hide and Seek

Minimalism as Low Detail

I was hunting for some architectural Minimalist shots at Swej Farm Jaipur, which is host to lots of new multi-story ultra modern apartments. I took a few shots and and the light was fading away fast as it was breezy and cloudy. In a few minutes there was a big dust-storm. I ran across the street to find myself a place away from all the dust. While I was waiting for the storm to pass by, I spotted this yellow cloth roof that belonged to a local Tea Kiosk to my left. Yellow is a striking color and I never miss spotting it. It was very windy and therefore the tree leaves were pushing back and forth against it. I switched my camera settings from one shot to the continuous mode and pressed the shutter button. One out of the three shots that I took, was precisely what I wanted.

Since the leaves were continuously moving back and forth, and therefore appearing and disappearing as very short intervals, I titled this post Hide and Seek.

This game was a perfect setting for one of my favorite Type of Minimalism i.e Low Detail, where some part of the subject is visible and the rest you have to guess or imagine. I have another shot of a similar subject in my previous post titled Tea Stall

Hope that you enjoyed the shot and the behind the scenes action. If you do have similar shots, please post a link to them in the comments. Thank you.
