Blue-Sunset-HuesnShades
 Twilight
Gold and silhouette
Magic happens
In the horizon
Zenith weds nadir!


RedCottage-HuesnShades
 The world stripped off
Emptied our souls
Leaving blank statements
To be filled by void.
Yet are bosom
Of stories - told and untold.


Thekkady-HuesnShades
 The blues
The greens
The browns...
Solitude and solace...
Nature is
The best cure.

Alappuzha-Backwaters-HuesnShades
"No man is an island,"
They say.
But we all are
In the middle of nowhere
Weaving our own
Tales, interspersed
With spice and lace
Creating alter-realities
Feeding on our curiosities.

Postcard Series - Landscapes and poems

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers


When we travel we often look for postcards not only as keepsakes but also to send it to our family and friends. When I saw the blank Winsor and Newton postcards I wanted to have them but hadn't thought of what I would want to paint on them. In fact it was in hibernation for quite a while! Finally one fine day in August I took them out and decided to make some miniature landscapes on them. But as I was engaged in some exhibition works at the time I just made two and now after Inktober I started to continue with this series. I have used only Derwent Inktense Blocks as this is purely experimental for me in terms of colours as well as the theme of landscapes (except two the rest are landscapes).

So here's more from my postcard series with my micro-poems...The first picture is from a photo I saw when browsing through landscape photos, don't know whose picture it is. The second one is from a photo of Ed Shots whom I follow in Instagram and yes, I have tagged him there. He has some Awesome shots some of which have the feel of being quite lyrical! The last picture is from a photo my daughter clicked while we were walking around in Fort Kochi. It's en route to Pepper House when you get down the ferry.

MossyShrine-HuesnShades
 It is a 'game' of love
Every heart is a tomb
In the name of love!


BlueNight-HuesnShades
 Into 
The blue night
The scintillating
Flowers whispered
Saccharine secrets!


AbandonedBoat-HuesnShades
Reminiscing the salad days
Now bathing in the Sun
Longing for the lost waters!
