The angle of the sunlight falling on the plant in this photo exposes the texture of the woody bark.
This small, white feather stuck on a dry branch on my balcony caught my attention. It was remarkably light and delicate, and probably originated from a pigeon.

From politics to religion and from sports to one’s personal life, boundaries are everywhere. Humans seem to have this innate desire to segregate, to divide. We feel comfortable only when things are packed away neatly into distinctly classified boxes and when there is no ambiguity in matters.
While most boundaries are of the divisive sort, some actually do humanity good. Railings and fences, for example, while generally ordinary and boring, serve very noble purposes. They prevent people from falling off or out of things. This may seem menial, but such railings and fences have undoubtedly saved hundreds of lives.
Sometimes there is order in disorder and beauty in chaos. This photograph, which is intentionally out of focus, has a warm glow to it. Though there is nothing specific to “look at”, the entire photograph has an aesthetic and pleasing appearance. Unlike my other post with bokeh, this one has nothing in the foreground.
The term for aesthetic out-of-focus points in a photograph is bokeh. The bokeh depends greatly on the camera one uses. In this photograph the out-of-focus lights appear roundish, but, depending on the camera used, they may appear oval or even hexagonal in shape. Check out this site for more information on bokeh.
Marigold flowers are very common in India. From hanging above doors to filling in colourful patterns on the ground (rangolis), they are used for all sorts of decorative roles. The flowers are ubiquitous, especially during the festive season.
