A Black and White Minimalist Photograph of Shadow of Leaves falling a Textured Indian Wall.


"When nature is busy making art, all you can do is be stunned and watch."

This is exactly what happened here, but luckily I had my camera along with me for this was shot in my house. This wall belongs to my neighbor. It was peak afternoon and I had just came out for a walk in the garden after having lunch.

I have the habit of constantly scanning my surroundings for subjects, can't help it, I am a Photographer after all. While I stepped down in the passage from my garden, I spotted this beautiful Shadow of Leaves. Trust me, they were such a treat to watch. I instantly rushed inside to grab my camera for shadows change very quickly.

I had to compose this right and also in a unique way. So I decided to shoot the subjest top-down and I started by placing a diagonal line of the wall in the center and then let the Shadow of the Leaves fall in the frame as they wished.

I was close, but still I had to make sure I wasn't way too close. Also, leaving empty space was not that easy in such a tight frame.

The worn out textured wall helped in setting a unique mood as well.
