Framed in: Meditate… reflect… ride and ride on… through the nothingness, exploring the void and absorbing the tranquility of the travel, one comes to terms with only the road and the two wheels. Being alone and without any expectation or destination, travel becomes euphoria. The time stands still and the terrains on both the sides move on. With no destination to reach, there has to have a nothingness in front to conquer. And beyond every curve, the nothingness will give way to a state of ecstasy… a pure bliss! So every time you take a curve, between the nothingness and the bliss, you rediscover yourself!
Framed out : Clicked with my HTC desire HD, this picture becomes the first mobile click in this blog. With the changing technology, this becomes inevitable. This picture, I guess reiterates the fact that, to get a good frame, you don’t need a sophisticated camera and lenses. You just need to be at the right place at the right time and with a right state of mind. I was on a weekend trip to my friend Nitha’s place at Manipal and she was busy with her work on a Saturday and I had to roam around alone. Since her husband had a Thunderbird, roaming around alone was never a task for me more over was something that I welcomed! So I just rode to kollur without any purpose, the sole purpose being the ride! Had a good Darshan at the Mookambika temple. And on my way back I wanted to capture this entire feeling of being alone in the road and the euphoria it gave me. It was during that golden time of the day with the slanting golden rays of the winter season making the entire world look beautiful. When I saw this play of light in one of the bunch of grasses I knew I am in for a good frame. I stopped the bike in the shadow and moved a little back and clicked it. “Beyond Nothingness.” Was born!
