The saga of an endeavor of a Being towards ultimate reality.
Another aspect of the theory presented in Gerbera Poems – The Divine Play of Creation. We, the Hindus believe that this is not the ONLY life, we live. The endeavor of a being continues and one has lived countless lives in the past. This journey will continue till, the one reaches to the destination of Self realization. In fact, there is no destination as such, it exists within us. WE just have to uncover it.
The being itself leaves the IMPRESSIONS of the forms or lives gone through ( the process of evolution from one level to another is imprinted ), like the Maya leaves for the divine creation. The being has no past or future. Once the being returns to it’s origin – Brahman, these impressions further reserved till the next cycle of creation. And the Divine play continues. . . . . . .
It was difficult to convert original color version to B&W as is. The converted image was about to loose the magic in the color version. Then, I placed one more layer of color version on B&W layers and fiddled in PS applying Gaussian Blurr & layers to get this result making me feel that I have only removed the color from the original image.
Single RAW file was processed in Adobe Camera Raw. Finally balanced in PS with multiple layer processing.
