“Barren branches and a woven silence, tell the tale of dark,

I might look dry, lifeless and unearthly,

but look at those leftover leaves, they speak of the blooming times which are gone and of those I behold”


This picture is from one of my morning trips to Parvati, which is a small hill in Pune. You climb several stairs to reach the hill which has a temple at the top. The temple tells the tale of a rich history of the Maratha warriors. The temple has a broken but beautiful structure. Each piece here talks of a story, every wall has its significance. The place, also has a small museum, displaying the remains from the life of then Kings and Queens. When you walk through the museum you can sense the part, each item, would have played in the kingdom. This tree is right outside the temple. It was winter and there was a thick fog. All you could see is this barren tree, which inevitably became a part of the entire set up. I couldn’t resist but capture the mixed emotion the tree portrayed –that of Loss & Hope!
P.S – I am learning few tools that help enhance the pictures and bring out or focus on the real emotion that one wants to focus in their images. This photo here  is my first experiment. I hope it has been worth a watch 🙂
