Bench Series : July

This post is in response to the Bench Series of the month July 2015. The challenge is the following.

This month I want to see photos of a bench which is different to the norm. It may be the shape, style, length, height, colour, material or even location that attracts your attention

So, here comes my “unusual benches”. I clicked this photograph in Hungary back in 2013.

A Snake (India, 2015)

This week’s theme is “close up”, and let’s have a close look at a snake. Quite scary, huh?

This is not a macro photograph, it’s just a close-up photo. This photo was taken in the state of West Bengal, India.

One of the great wheels, Konark Sun Temple, India

The Konark Sun Temple in Orissa, India is famous for its intricate stone carvings. The temple is in the shape of a huge chariot with twelve pairs of elaborately carved stone wheels. You can see one of the wheels in the photograph. The wheels of the chariot are symbolic and have been interpreted as the ‘Wheel of Life’. Each wheel has eight spokes which signifies eight parts of a day starting from dawn. It may also be interpreted as eight different periods of the life of a human being. The figures carved on each of the eight spokes are very symbolic as well. They symbolises the activities of human beings at different stages of life.

Ruins of doors, Hampi, India

Hampi, in Karnataka, India, was the last capital of Vijayanagar Empire, one of the greatest Hindu kingdoms in India’s history. Hampi is like a open museum with some extremely captivating ruins scattered everywhere, and the ruins date back to the 14th century. I am sharing a photograph, which shows the ruins of the stone doors, which were a part of the Royal Enclosure, a fortified area that was the core of the Vijayanagar Empire. The Royal Enclosure was a place where the royal family used to live.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge : Sculptures, Statues, Carvings

This post is in response to CEE’S BLACK & WHITE PHOTO CHALLENGE and the theme for this week is SCULPTURES, STATUES, CARVINGS. Eventually, this theme is one of my favourites as far as photography is concerned. I really love to click carvings on the walls of old historical monuments or things like that. In recent past, I have clicked a lot of photos which fit perfectly with today’s theme given by Cee. Here are two such clicks by me. I hope you will like them.
