EuroTrip'17: Haven't done a hardware post in awhile. So here it goes....Strolling along the quaint streets in Europe, absorbing everything & anything vintage, aged or otherwise beautiful. And hardware, stone carvings & metal artwork, with history are my fav!!
Personally, I have always hated the 'green-yellow' Color combination, found it peculiarly repulsive.
But there is something about this Color combination and these old Calcutta buildings. It's quite common here. A quintessential bengali middle class family living in a house with yellow painted walls, large green painted louvred windows and a huge front entrance door.
A red oxide front porch, to sit and sip on tea.
Imagine a typical Calcutta routine scene - a bunch of friends, sitting there on the front porch of one such building, on nearly every street; 'chaa, cigarette and adda - endless discussions on politics, football, society etc and chilling over a cup of tea & smoke'.
And somehow the repulsiveness of the Color fades away, replaced by a beautiful nostalgic setting.
Like they say, you may leave the city, but small nitty gritty everyday details like this from this city will never leave you :) #ihaveathingfordoors#ihaveathingforwalls#ig_calcutta
I have been mulling over making prints of my work for a long while. I only happened to discover @bechance today and decided to create a profile, enabling me to sort through and categorise my photographs into projects/sections. I am still not sure as to how I am going to go about the printing but at least it's helping me curate the ones I definitely want to print out. Will update more once I have figured out the process in case anyone wishes to purchase them:) And here is the last of my Pondicherry window compositions. I observed a great abundance of gray and white buildings in the Heritage Town area and learned that they belong to the Aurobindo Ashram.
