Arati, In the morning I saw a fine image from you which it looks like you have deleted ? And the series you mentioned ? Would love to see the entire series.

Back to this one, keen to know your interpretation of those little spiraling winds (of mind?) and how you are relating to the title you have chosen. Thanks for sharing.

HI Ganesh,
Yes, you are right .... that was part of a series, and putting it up one by one somehow did not feel right to me. So i deleted that. Yes, i will upload the entire series ... maybe like you have done the color one.

As for this one. Here is how my mind worked when i came across this scene. I had a choice of going shallow DoF or sharp throughout. To me, the scene represented the inner mind - doldrums of confusion (the fuzzy green) and thought-analysis (the brown whorls), and the role of fact (the sharper leaf edge) all in the mind that we grapple with each moment and try to be coherent.

i deliberately kept a shallow depth of field because, in our minds, we are not crystal clear with everything - there are fuzzy moments and moments of clarity.

hope this helps articulate somewhat?

Agree with you Arati ! It is that fuzziness which makes us ponder over an image for long !

The left part of the image seems to convey being still and the state of motion simultaneously. Very nice. Reminded me of the story about priorities in life and how everything else falls around it. http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/mot ... asp?id=264

Yes, indeed Mahesh ... being still in motion is really the beauty of a zen mind .... nice way to interpret this ... thanks much for your comments!
