A Minimal Art Photograph of Peacock Feathers against an old Heritage Door.


This Photograph was taken when I was out on a Photowalk near Hawa Mahal Jaipur.

The Photowalk  was organized by Anudeep Mathur in November 2016. Thanks to the Quarantine/Lockdown, that I am able to dig into my old folders and bring these photos to the forefront.

We assembled in front of Hawa Mahal at about 8 AM. The Sun was shining bright and I still remember the air that day was really fresh.

After the Group Shot, we were supposed to walk towards Jaleb Chowk and keep clicking photos on our way. While everyone was on a Street Photography walk, I was on my combo of Street And/ OR Minimalism.

While on my way to Jaleb Chowk, I spotted this Old Heritage Door and these Beautiful Peacock Feathers Set. These feathers set was kept against the Heritage Door by a Peacock Feather seller. When I asked him he said that he would be off to sell these in about half an hour.

I admired the Peacock Feathers for a long time. They were so beautiful that I forgot to even click a picture.

After a while, I took the lens lid off and composed this Minimalist Frame bending low on my knees.

The feathers contrasted nicely with the Brownish-red old Heritage Door with In-built Square shapes.

Overall it was an interesting Color Palette not to miss.
