The Night

Night

Quote:
Night is the time to weep,
To wet with unseen tears
Those graves of memory where sleep
The joys of other years.

Srinivas,
True. Very true. There are quite a few who can relate to this. Though this was the first time, I am posting a work of this author.

U r right,those who experienced it, they need no words:)
"That part of night,where the darkness outside tries to cover up my heart, where i fight for light but end up helpless and weep till i am tired,and drift away into no dream land,hoping that there will be light soon:)"

Shripriya,
Normally I try to keep friday's post on a lighter vein. But this was necessary and it meant for someone. Neither can I wait to have some of your snaps here.

Shanks,
Sshh!!!

Charu,
Thanks a lot.

Neelima,
Guess we are in the same plane in this regard........

TT,

d4u,
Seeing you after quite some time. Thanks a lot.

Revathi,

wonderful quote ....as usual

Deepak,
Thanks for the compliements. But I cant even call myself as an amateur photographer - atleast not yet. You should have a look at few like kaleidoscope (I hope I got the spellign right) or boon docks to get the feel of good photography. I just keep clicking things just to satisfy myself but I still havent learnt much :-(

Anubhav
Thanks for being honest. Actually I was trying to relate the grief in the quote with that of the snap. Initial impression of the snap might be some hifi place but atleast I see it as a place where this money but not happiness. The loneliness, the coldness is ever permeading.......

This photo is very good and nicely taken. I have been observing your blog for some time without commenting as such. One thing that impresses me is your dedication to be creative in your photographs, always trying to do a bit out of the commonplace.

However, my advice to you is not to get carried away by the responses you receive. Good as the photos are, they are quite a long way from being called 'professional'. I assume you are using a digital camera. The results are faster using a digicam, but you cannot experiment much with lighting and angles. Have you tried to use an SLR with manual focussing, shutter speed adjustment and all that?

There is a long way to go for you, but I am sure you will reach there in time. Meanwhile, keep up the good work and your impressive traits of observation and assimilation from your surroundings, which along with the creative strain are the forces behing this blog.

Its a pleasant surprise seeing you here. Infact didnt knew about your blog url till today.

Thanks a lot for the advise. I dont even call myself Amateur. I would love to tinker and experiment with different manual shutter, aperture, lens etc But they are all just theoretical knowledge for me until I upgrade my camera to Digital SLR. But it is currently out of my budget - saving now - but it looks unlikely for another year or two.

Thanks Anand and its nice catching up with you. Will follow through your blog.
