The lady in the picture was visiting her place of birth and hence the the black and white effect for “Nostalgia”
(She is the mother of my Aunt).
Picture taken at Wai , a town in the foothills of the Western Ghats, a mountain range in India.

    wowwy… loved the composition, loved the mood… and the thought behind this shot… feeling that little child again…

    and above all simply superb thought behind selective color… She’s remembering good old days… she’s re-living them…. and hence a convergence between Past and Presence…

    Amazing work Shubha…

  • Thanks Biren .
    You are a poet at heart it seems :)
    And I am so glad you could see exactly what I was trying to capture.

    P.S. I do hope you took a view with the larger option . the gold in her sari .. the traditional pearl earrings … all so typical of the previous generation . :)

    Great shot. She seems to be wearing a festive sari. Was it a special occasion that brought her back to her birthplace?

  • Thanks David . It was a sort of an occasion . The River Krishna runs through the town ( birthplace) . And the River is venerated for a whole week during that particular month of the Hindu calendar ,with different sections of the town being in charge of the that particular day’s functions .
