Photography Styling Challenge #3 – Wall Vignette

It’s time for another round of photographs.
Wall Vignettes is the theme decided by M, founder-creator of this very challenging challenge. The previous two(Food and Table Setting) had all of us on our toes, till the very end. After stumbling, bumbling and falling(and failing), I had decided I am not going to mess it up again. I shall be fully prepared, in fact well in advance.

But old habits die hard and the fact that, I am particularly not too lucky adds enough salt to my wounds.

I was on a hunt. Aesthetically designed walls, with maybe murals, abstract designing, striking, haphazard yet deceptively organized was what I had in mind.
But my search turned futile most of the times. And whenever I did find something interesting, I had a main element missing – my camera. Now you know why I call myself unlucky.

Well, like the last two times, I scrambled at the very last moment to get something decent enough to put it out there.

M if you are reading this: The challenge details asks us to submit 1-5 photographs of the same subject matter. Does it mean, 1-5 photographs of the same “wall”, as in this month’s theme? Are assorted pictures of different elements but same subject allowed?

I have blogged 5 pictures of different walls. Er.. Hope I adhered to the rule..:)

Here are the following Clicks-

This picture is of my neighboring apartment.
The podium wall has an embossed mural in the shape of a tree, along with huge scattered branches.  I took many shots, but somehow this one where you get to see only a part of the whole thing appealed more than the other clicks.

Next, since I was on a lookout for something different, other than wall paintings and photographs, my friend suggested this handsome house, which has very interesting wall vignettes and murals. It indeed was a visual treat. My only regret was how I wished I had a better camera!

This particular wall is a part of a narrow passage. with light coming in from the two ends, the long rectangle passage offered very little natural light and space. But it was intriguing and interesting enough for me to not let it go. Hence I try to capture part of it with many lights on(thankfully they were white lights!).

The house has a fascinating study, where ‘Warli Art’ is beautifully hand painted along the book shelf –

I chanced upon this art work done temporarily in a friend’s place where they celebrated “Krishna Janmashtami”, birthday of Lord Krishna. The entire set up was far away from natural light, hence after some permutations and combinations, I could get one or two clicks right.
