Frame the photo
One of the attractive composition technique in the photography is to 'frame the photo'. Framing can be achieved by capturing the scene through a window made by natural or artificial objects, such as sky from the window, view through a hole. Any object with void in it can also become a frame for the photograph. To list a few: iron gate, tree branches, doors and windows etc. Some creative frames might be the broken mirror, hand arrangements.

Below are three examples where I have used 'frame the photo' technique. I shot water-pot framed by a door using a minimalism approach. This image was taken at Amber fort, Jaipur. It show-cases a small part of sky, placed at 1/3rd position at right top corner. As the sky color contrasts with the frame-color strongly, it may become the point of attraction or distraction, left it to the viewer. For me main attraction remains as the water pot placed outside the room. Characteristics I liked the most about the photo is the light condition. It was about 4 PM when the sun was making perfect angle to illuminate the objects and blacken the frame.
In the second image, I have captured hostel no. 12 from the hostel no 13 gallery. Photo was then converted to black and white. The frame creates a natural effect. Viewer feels if he would have been in cameraman's place, he would have seen exact frame with his naked eyes.
Third image was taken during my visit to 'Elephanta caves' near Mumbai. A girl seating on a stone and praying was photographed by her parents. The entrance to the cave is used as the frame. Again the contrast in the color of clothes and the color of the cave leads the viewer to the object of interest.

According to Lee Newham there are about five important design elements when it comes to brand identities. Iconic logos are :
- Effective without color
- Scalable i.e. work when just an inch in size
- Relevant to the industry in question
I would add one more to it - Simplicity. It takes time to introduce above said six skills. However viewer perspective is far different:
" Its too simple "
" Why I haven't thought of it? "
" Why it costs so much " (applicable for all art forms)
"Never knew !"

Every time its the black color talked about !
We always like what we don't get/achieve. To hide this feeling, we criticize it !
Entertainment is always preferred over academics.
Belief is widely and blindly accepted than the fact.
How good a gift is - its all about the size, packing, price and not about whats inside.

चार ओळी तुझ्यासाठी : भावना
कधीकधी शब्द अपुरे पडतात ,
भावना व्यक्त करताना,
आज भावनाच अपूऱ्या पडल्या
तुला समोर पाहताच
मनाची अनेक छकले होतात
निम्मी माझ्या अन निम्मी तुझ्या बाजूने
फक्त भांडत सुटतात !
तु दिसताच प्रसंगांनी मनात गलका केला
माझ्यासाठी हा क्षण पुरेसा बोलका होता
आठवणी आठवणीने विसरताना मात्र
माझ्या आठवणींना शहारा आला होता !
भावनांच्या उद्रेकाने कधीतरी
कवितेचा आधार घ्यावा.
दाटलेल्या आसवांना रडण्यासाठी ,
थोडा तरी वाव द्यावा !

चार ओळी तुझ्यासाठी : लग्न
जन्मोजन्मी तू माझी असावीस,
हा माझा अट्टाहास होता.
दुर्दैवाने तुझ्या डोक्यावर पडलेल्यांपैकी ,
काही अक्षता माझ्याही होत्या !
आज तू भेटल्यावर सांगायचं होतं !
तू माझ्या हृदयात कायमची आहेस.
तुझं मंगळसूत्र बघून मात्र एवढच म्हटलं,
तू कशी आहेस ?
कधीतरी माझं लग्न होईल,
उद्या तुझं आहे !
तुला मी माझ्याच नावावरून चिडवण्याचा
हा मात्र शेवटचा दिवस आहे !

Scales of a butterfly
Butterflies are characterized by their scale-covered wings. The coloration of butterfly wings is created by minute scales. These scales are pigmented with melanins that give them blacks and browns, but blues, greens, reds and iridescence are usually created by the micro-structure of the scales. This structural coloration is the result of coherent scattering of light by the photonic crystal nature of the scales The scales are loosely to the wing and come off easily without harming the butterfly.
