Friendly Friday Photo Challenge-Between The Lines

Here’s another wonderful prompt from the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge hosted by AmandaSnow and Manja! 

‘Between the Lines’- can be interpreted in as many ways as photographer may wish to and for amateurs like me, this becomes all the more lucid. So, here I go with my interpretation of this week’s theme- some are literal and some are abstract and some are just special moments in our pocketbook of memories that tell a story.

One of my favorite gifts ever…my little boy who was two and half at the time, painted this as my birthday present. It means nothing to anybody but these random brush strokes on a simple paper now framed never fail to put a smile on my face. And what makes it extra special is this-  after he finished this, he said he should draw one for his dad too as otherwise his Baba might feel left out and sad. He used to be such a sweet little boy and he still he but now that he is growing up, I feel that unadulterated innocence  is getting replaced by some well thought out mischief! I enjoy these just as much but somewhere I already miss those days when he used to be my tiny mush 🙂

 

 

When he was learning to write in between lines

 

And these last two are illustrations by an artist whose name I just cannot recollect:( These are watercolor on postcard size papers and I bought them during one of my visits back home. They are about my city of Kolkata, capturing her iconic landmarks and also everyday life. The left one is of the famous Howrah Bridge and the right one is of Victoria Memorial..probably two of the most famous pieces of architecture that enshrine the history of Kolkata with pride. These beautiful paintings, peeping out from within the four lines of  their tiny frames, bring a slice of my ‘home’ in my current home.

 

 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a good weekend!

    A comprehensive post for this week’s Friendly Friday post, Moon. Well done. I love the painting that your little boy did – it is sad when they grow but we would worry if they didn’t mature and stayed babylike too! Enjoy each stage that they pass through on their way to becoming adults.
    India- that shot of your brother’s looks so remote, but what wonderful mountains ahead of him!
    I like the frozen clothes line too. Well anything with Snow is good!
    Lovely Autumn shades in Lake George as well. I don’t know that area at all….

      You are right… I have been telling myself the same…to enjoy each stage! The shot my brother took was pretty significant for him…he was on a sort of journey trying to get away from the clutter and chaos of everyday city life and finding some meaning in life. he said that Ladakh is probably one of those places in India everyone should try to go at least once to find peace and tranquility and immerse themselves in the beauty that is all around. I haven’t been there myself but have seen enough pictures and heard stories to add that to my list of places to visit! Lake George area is very pretty small town in the Adirondack Mountain ranges and while it is beautiful all year round, I think autumn is the best time to visit..the colors are just fabulous. We keep going there whenever we can and it has never disappointed us!

    Oooo these are just brilliant! I love so many of your photos and interpretations. The snowy ones really hit the spot. We are melting here!! But the most immediate (emotional) impact was caused by these two: the one of clouds marked “Home” (beauty!!) and of your little boy. I can see mischief. 😀 Just wonderful!
