In Light and Darkness...

Like a faint shimmering light in the uncertainty of darkness,
Was his love for her.
It vanished each time the lights were switched on...

This is a feeble attempt in creating a bokeh. I used the small chain bulbs we used to decorate our balcony this Diwali. 
Not sure what a 'bokeh' is? Read Here

Can you Kill?

Your kohl-lined eyes were an instant thrill,
Ah! I wondered...'If only looks could kill'.
One glance from you and my heart would fill
Ah! I wondered...'If only looks could kill'.

The Name-Game

Hidden in this vastness
Concealed in this frame,
Lie the coloured grains of life
That silently spell your name.

Friends and the Sea

All the bygone, hush├Ęd years
Streaming back where the mist distils
Into forgetfulness: soft-sailing waters where fears
No longer shake, where the silk sail fills
With an unfelt breeze that ebbs over the seas, where the storm
Of living has passed, on and on......

- from Dreams Old and Nascent, D.H Lawrence

The Three Friends

It was on a quiet lazy afternoon that S and I decided  to visit the small church in Majitar. It was some ten minutes walk from my college, down the national highway. 
We were sitting on the porch of the church, flipping through S's point and shoot camera, when these three little local girls came up to us. They were on the way back from school, the road in front of the church being a short-cut route to their small,single-roomed,thatched roof homes. 
The small silver camera had caught their attention and made them stop. 'Didi, photo'  was all that one of the three could manage to say initially in a shy and low voice. The sound of the first click was enough to drive away their shyness! Click... click... click...!!! It continued for almost half an hour, with they posing and us clicking!
Among my many clicks, I particularly like this one because of the expressions :)
