Nature’s bounty

A walk uphill

Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead.
Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.”

Albert Camus

This is a candid picture that I took in Panchgani. A group of friends were exploring the tableland. It was a brilliant composed opportunity….. too good to miss. The camaraderie among them was obvious and the interaction between them gave me a brilliant candid shot.

Grace, Beauty, Spirit and Freedom

Imitating

I took this pic in my recent visit to Panchgani. The tableland is home to a large number of monkeys. They have a peaceful existence there and is often seen frolicking with their friends. This particular monkey grabbed a bottle of water from one of the visitors and opened the bottle with his hands and drank like anybody would unlike the other monkeys who bit of the end of the bottle to have a drink.

Breaking Free…….. A Galloping horse

A new life, for myself, I need to weave.
I need some oxygen, so as I can breathe.
From these chains, I need to break free;
I need the chance just to be totally me.

I need to escape now, from this prison cell;
Escape from this existence, I know so well.
Afraid of the world, in my corner, I cower;
I’m just like a bud, that’s waiting to flower.

I can’t go on like this forever and ever;
The storms in life, I will need to weather.
By your actions, my life has been affected;
I’m just like a child: my life is protected.

Sometimes it feels like I am suffocating.
For the perfect moment, I am still waiting.
You know that one day, I will go away;
Here, forever more, I just cannot stay.

Into my life, I need to let some light.
From this place, I need to take flight.
I need to try and overcome all my fears.
I need to have my own hopes and ideas.

I now need to have my very own space;
I need to live my life at my own pace.
One day, I will be a flower in full bloom,
And that ‘one day’ may come very soon.

I took this picture in Panchgani on a very bright sunny day. The silhouette of the tree against the backdrop was amazing. I mono-chromed it so that the stark beauty of the tree could be highlighted and that the tree could be the main focus in the picture. It was one of those perfect shots which required no editing not even cropping. I got the angle right and the right amount of shadows.
