Searching for existence..


Framed in: When an individual loses a sense of personal sameness and historical continuity, he falls into this state known as “identity crisis.” We feel dejected and out of the world. The reasons for we being here in this world is unknown to us. But definitely there is a purpose for our presence here, because nothing happens without a cause. This holds true in every case as in “Chaos Theory”. As the time goes by, importance of certain things diminishes certain other things increases. That’s natural.  This particular statue brings us the memories of the once glorious past it had. Now left untouched, it might have had a fabulous past with even people worshipping it. But now ignored by everyone, broken down into pieces, it still stays in its place with an identity crisis, without knowing its purpose of being there! This can happen to me, to you, to everyone! So beware!

Framed out: This picture was taken at Dauna pola beach  in Goa. One of those rarest beaches in Goa which doesn’t have much sand. This particular statue, raised my interest. The way it stood facing the sea, the mysterious look.. everything added to the interest it created. I dint wait long to click it. With the Nikon FM10 camera loaded with Fuji 200 film, it brought out the colour I intended for. This pic has effectively used the awesome qualities of a tele lens. With vivtar 75-300 lens obviously set at 300 mm, the depth of field was controlled and a slight out of focus added the mysterious touch to it. Taken from slightly above the horizon, this gives the pic a look like that has been taken from an air craft or something which added to its mysterious look! Truly an identity crisis!
