An evening convention




Tharangini B
An evening convention
They all settled, but for a few minutes, restless and eager to share their day before the evening transformed into night. It was their time to connect and bond over stories of the day gone, wisdom imparted and lessons learnt and wishing each other goodbye till the next morning was born.

I love this frame Tharangini. Apt caption too - it leads us to the story.

I am tempted to see two of the right most cropped out. In any case, I am sure you can shoot many more perspectives in same location

Thank you Ravi. You are right about the right two. The reason they are retained is when I remove them the frame looks a bit diluted. Like you have told to get another one like this where they are more balanced I'll have to wait for them to hold another meeting...:) Also for some strange reason, the crows have now stared sensing my lens even when I am 3 buildings away and they tend to regroup elsewhere as soon as I point the lens at them. Smart birds..:) now I've to get smarter...:)

I love this frame. So similar to our meetings around Simha Farms dining area, no?
For what I remember, crows remember the human faces well. Just go without lens for few days and enjoy their presence. I am sure, they would offer you a lot in terms of photographs once you are accepted !

Thanks Samyak..:) we should ask everyone else if this is similar to our meetings around Simha Farms dining area..:) nice connection.. You are right, the crows do remember human faces well. They are comfortable around me when I fill their their bird bowls with water. I wonder if they associate the lens with some other memory. In any case I'll hold back for some time and then try.. Till then I'll just work on the compositions in my head.. :) Thanks again.

Excellent, Tharangini. It reminds me of my childhood days. In my village there was a bodhi tree. Villagers used to sit and chat there. They had all the time in the world. Where did the time go? We don't seem to have any left!

@Nevilji - Thank you so much. I am really glad this image has brought back memories of Simha Farms for you and Samyak..:)

@ Ganesh Sir - Thank you so much.. yes the crows did seem to share their stories of the the day and the evening was reserved for it before they departed to their respective roosts.

In the words of " William Henry Davis
What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows."

Ironically this poem was originally published in 1911 and holds relevance till date.

In this context, I am really glad how CNP helps us reconnect with nature as it is meant to be... :)

Thanks again,

the white space gives us freedom to fill in our thoughts

Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

@Rajkumar - it sure does. With space of any kind being a luxury these days, it feels good to play with space when possible...:)

A line of eleven a 'mantra' of nature! Very meaningful.....filling up the whole sky with the sound of recitation......!
