Change of seasons: Photo Post #3


Monsoons are finally seeming to come to an end. It’s September, the crisp sun rays shine again. I’ve been so sick of the dull weather and grey clouds. After weeks, the sun rays seeped through again. Especially since the last few days I’d been left with not much to do (my exams got over and then occurred an astoundingly rare long weekend), I did some photography, and it was the perfect time since it was the transitioning from monsoon to autumn.

Who am I kidding? There is no autumn in India. It’s the second summer, in my opinion. The concept of Autumn never existed in India, but some borrow these fancy words from the west and mess it up. It might not seem like it, but I promote Indian-ness in the most Indian ways.

(Quick edit: I just learnt there’s an autumn in north India 😂)

It’s raining lesser and getting more humid now. Let’s begin!

It had just rained in the evening and the aftermath..

…was the droplets of water deposited on some of the most beautiful flowers!

This is an acupressure path, not that special, but somehow it seemed oh so pretty.

And here, the skies are getting clearer. That day, me and my sister were having a playdate. Not sure if siblings can have that, but she planned the entire day with all the things we loved and sure enough, photography was one.

More post-rain souvenirs- Droplets on these flowers! These flowers…ah.

And here begins the next day. It was bright, sunny and warm. (Do you like the imagery yet?) Sun rays slowly creeped through the sleek leaves of the trees, awaiting my arrival to photograph them. 😛

It was very sunny. But in the above picture, the sky’s a bit edited to look rosy pink. I’m a huge fan of editing. Everyone says natural is beautiful, but for photography, editing is key. While picturing something, many things are missing, and editing helps to set the brightness, tint, saturation and exposure just right to make the perfect picture. Enough of technical stuff, onto the next one!

This is one of my favorites. I love all those shades of green and hey, I haven’t edited this one.

Ah, how tropical! I feel I exaggerate my simple surroundings to look very vacation-ey. But what a feeling, to stand beneath the sun. I know I’m saying this for the hundredth time, but I’m a very summery person! At that time, I was playing with my sister and a little friend of hers.

Introducing my Sister, Meg (not her full name)! At least her head. So, she was just standing there staring that path and it struck to me that it would make a very…thoughtful picture. To me, it seems like a picture depicting a person’s hesitation to move forward in life. What do you think?

I do realise B&W isn’t working out here, but let’s go with it anyway.

I was adjusting some things in the camera and all of a sudden it went all blurry. But it looked kind of cool too.

Before I end today, I hope everyone’s doing great. We’re in difficult times not that you need me to tell you that, we need some hope *J-hope flashbacks* . Just know, no matter what, life must go on.

how’s ‘life goes on’ related to the collage, I have no idea.

Like an echo in the forest

one day will come

as if nothing happened

Yeah, life goes on

Life Goes on, BTS, english translations

I felt that was necessary. Not only is it a nice song to hum to (Yes, I’m looking at you, mom), but it means something. One day will surely come when everything’s normal.

I hope you enjoyed this post, leave your thoughts in the comments, I always respond! No question for this one though! Before you leave, I thought I’d share this with you.

Here is a beautiful poem that a lovely book blogger Sep who writes more poems than book reviews has written about letting people go. It’s deep and very insightful. I relate to it a lot, having to let go of many people many times.

Anyways, Until the next time.

Not-so-daintily loving you,


p.s. my swifties did you just hear the wildest dreams Taylor’s version yet???

  1. WOAHHH!!!!! Your photographs are divine!!! They are so scenic!!
    Yes, the aftermath of the monsoon is picturesque and divine <3
    Though the days were hazy, I definitely enjoyed drinking hot beverages or munching on some crunchy delicacy in the evening while watching the pouring rain 😁
    YESS!! Wildest Dreams is **chef's kiss.** It sounds so different than the original version. Taylor's voice has metamorphosed to become more melodic! AAA, loved it!!!
