Light and shadows in Padmanabhapuram palace

So much to ponder..

So far, this has been the toughest place to shoot indoors in natural
light. Beautiful palace yet lifeless in photographs without proper
light + people combination. Here’s my effort to bring both the elements
together!

Theyyam and Padayani during the onam festival in my city. Theyyam is vigorously red while Padayani soothes you through green. Both combine  dance, music, colours and believes from tribal culture which lately found a place in the main stream.

As celebrations set off for Onam last year.
magical light..tanned bodies..and wonderful sound.

A proper holiday!

A peaceful holiday at the beautiful hill station of K.Gudi in BR hills.  In the rain shadow region of the western ghats, K Gudi remained cool and serene even during summer.  The early morning jungle safari in an open jeep gave a geat view of the hills and lovely sanctuary. Night hours in cottages and tents are lit up by hurricane lamps and not electricity which is absolutely soothing and relaxing.
