A Minimal Art Picture of the Missing Pipe in the Pipe Roof at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur, Versus the Plant.


This area is located to the right, just before the Indian Coffee House entrance hall way. I have crossed this area many a times before and but time around, the Missing Pipe made me stop here. 

I have tried to click the Missing Pipe earlier as well, but I was not successful in creating a decent composition. I ended up clicking just the roof with diagonal lines and the missing pipe, resulting in a fairly vanilla composition.

This time, somehow I got the idea of placing the Green Plant right under the Pipe  Roof (with the missing pipe) as a complimentary subject, to add more interest in the frame. 

The only challenge was getting the Camera Settings right, as the light was all over the place.

After 3-4 edits, I got what I wanted. 


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 24-105 mm Prime Lens

  • Shutter Speed: 1/50 sec.

Hope you enjoyed the Missing Pipe Vs The Plant Minimalist Photograph.


Thank you for your time. Have a Nice Day. !

I attended one session at Jaipur Literature Festival 2019 and it was in Hindi Language for a change.

While I was sitting on the Chair listening carefully to the author, I spotted these Chairs in Repetition.

There was a Apparel Exhibition at Jawahar Kala Kendra this Sunday. I spotted these spare Empty Frames near Parijaat Art Gallery, where the clothes were on display. 


On most of the frames they hung clothes using multiple metal hangers. These Spare Empty Frames provided me with an opportunity to click a Minimalism as Simple Geometry Photograph.

The Minimalist View says, that these are Black Lines (Simple Geometry) against Red Walls. Only 2 elements and therefore very Minimalist.

  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 24-105 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/16
