AnomalyCity: Pot-ted Beginnings

When you can’t venture out into the city, you begin to learn more about your own surroundings. As I surveyed the world from my terrace, I noticed this plant growing out of a drain pipe.

Ewww! As I thought about it, but then immediately realised it was actually getting its “soil” and water on a daily basis. Haha! It is a story of hope in the midst of adversity. Opportunity in the middle of chaos.

I did not expect the plant to grow as big as it is now. Consistent sunlight, water, daily, made it possible.

Photography: Minimalism

Minimalist photography is a real treat to the eyes. I think it makes one think a little deeper because it emphasises the subject. It draws you to derive your own understanding of what’s being showcased.

“There is a poetic nature to minimalism that is about striking a balance between full and empty.” – Jennie C. Jones

“What you see is what you see.” – Frank Stella

“I photograph to find out what something would look like photographed” – Gary Winigrand

Photo Travel: Mother’s Wax Museum in Kolkata – Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist, and political ethicist, who employed nonviolent resistance to lead the successful campaign for India’s independence from British Rule, and in turn inspire movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā (Sanskrit: “great-souled”, “venerable”), first applied to him in 1914 in South Africa, is now used throughout the world. (Source: Wiki)
