Hmm ! another signature image from you Nirlep. I like the mystery/illusion of joined yet separated plants emanating from the wall. Muted tones goes perfectly well and creates a subtle mood. May be keeping the wall just a bit softer would further add ?

A fine original vision for sure. I have a question for you - In most of your images you beautifully mix hand of man with nature. Can you show us some with just nature ? I would love to see how those 'Nirlepisms' will look like :)

Thanks Nirlep for sharing !

Nirlep, i do calligraphy - and at one point, i was learning Japanese calligraphy. Your image reminds me of ancient Japanese art. only the kanji or hiragana seal/signature is missing :) it is ethereal, soft, like a watercolor on rice paper. the textures you capture, the color combinations ~ nothing jars the eye. very zen-like.

i love it immensely.
thank you.

like it much, nirlep. fantastic relating of nature 'n man-made thing, given equal importance ... rather, made belong to eachother! muted tone 'n gloomy feel adds much.

Interesting study. I see the paradox between the man made wall that deteriorates and unable rejuvenate itself and the plants that grow, decay in parts but are able to regrow and stay fresh. The similarity in tones adds. Thanks these pics expand my vision

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

oh I love this one Nirlep, the tones in the wall are going so beautifully with the trees.
The mist and texture in the wall have a nice contrasting feel.

Thanks for liking the image Ganesh. About the question..well when not travelling wall is my muse. our habitat and nature is a heady mix for me and I can't help including both. However I'll try what you suggested.
Nevil thanks for your comments. You've summed up my feelings behind the image beautifully.
Aarti I just try and keep it simple. Complexity is just not me. I know this limitation of mine and try working with visuals which are evocative. I'm zenned by your remark.
Rajkumar and Prithvi it was a gloomy day with thick fog. This visual created strange confusion in me. I saw the tree and wall as alter-egos. similarity of tones on both the objects hinted at some underlying unity. So it was gloom, anticipation.in one go.

Fine balance in the image and the mood is soft... Nothing to critic, just to sit back and appreciate the beauty everywhere in this creation...
