Latent Anger

I was in college with friends when one of them just randomly suggested that I go to Mount Mary sometime in the evening. 'You'll get to witness amazing sunset, you know' so I took off with my camera and that's how I clicked this one. When I clicked it I was half expecting it to turn out so dark [courtesy lens flare], but it did and I loved it.
Latent Anger might sound a little far fetched but these dark clouds looked as if they were holding a lot of things back and at the slightest instigation they would be ready pour it all...and the evening sun at the backdrop emanating those rays as if all of it were actually smoke. A stark similarity in the behaviour of both, but varied manifestations.
P.S.- And yeah, the view from Mt. Mary in the evening is definitely amazing!!! A delight for photographers.

I was on my visit to Jama Masjid when I had clicked this!!! And when I did it didn't clearly hit me of this tag. But when I took a closer look, there it was....Freedom.
If you look at the pic. closely you would also know what I m talking about. Surely, one would have noticed the inherently 'un-synchronized' behaviour of the birds. To begin with, the flight of each bird is characteristic of its own and probably not all of them are flying in one direction as well. But then, ain't that also the esence of freedom? To be so distinct and yet be so same, or rather to be so same and yet be so distinct...which ever way that you look at it.

I was at this very dry, roadside cafe when I noticed this one. Not that I hadn't seen beatiful petals before or any such thing, but the moment that I noticed these petals I stood there overwhelmed at the combo of life sorrounding it. Personally, I was in awe of its striking presence amidst anhydrous sorroundings, or in awe of its vivacious nature or its blithe spirits or may be something else.
And it was this very nature of the petals that made me think of this tag. Still trying to figure out why did I stand there. But whatever the reason may be, I just couldn't thank less...

It is clearly what the tag suggests- Childhood. A part of our lives which all of us miss the most and a part of our lives we desperately wish that it never got over; probably because we left our most honest part there. That couldn't care less attitude, getting up in the morning and going straight to the ground to play cricket only to return back in a mess, or probably wearing a full sleeved formal shirt to make ourselves believe that we are one of those grown ups who know it all, or just those endless guys vs. girls debate. Or if I could summarise in one line- That inhibition free world.
This picture I dedicate to all such memories forming our childhood and to that one person within us who still refuses to grow up.

'Mehr' is a Persian word that literally means 'Sun'. And that's what I attempt to show here. A speck of sun rising above the dark pitching clouds coming its way, all of this being looked through a puddle of water right on the ground. Perhaps reflects such an irony!!! Of something that essentially lives in the sky and is being showcased from the ground. Its amazing how sometimes reflections appear so clear that it becomes difficult to distinguish them from the real.
As for the tag is concerned it was suggested to me by my friend, I liked it so much that I couldn't resist keeping it.
