It's in the details.

Sometimes, it's the details that we might just overlook that make up the incredible photo opportunities. In the first photo, just the absolute perfection of the handcrafted stonework of centuries past can speak to us. In the second and third photos, its the flowers all around us that can really say something poetically and photographically. In the third picture, just the relaxed interaction between my wife and the lady tying the fringe on the hand-knotted rug, makes for a most interesting photographic encounter. And in the last one, we return to the incredible detail of the palace of mirrors that spoke to me.


  1. Stunning!

    And speaking of details, have you ever been to the temple of Khajurao, the erotic carvings based on 'Kama Sutra' will keep you spellbound! And if you ever chance to visit that place, you may also take a brief detour to visit the Konarak Sun Temple in Orissa.

  2. The first photo is especially great. It always amazes me the quality of workmanship that ancient cultures were able to achieve.

  3. Nowadays few people take a close look at the details, what with hustle and bustle of everyday life. Sometimes details have more appeal than the whole.

  4. Thanks for your thoughtful comments. As my wife notes, I sometimes get lost in the details. Ah, well.
    And Maggie, I've never been to the temple of Khajurao (or not that I know of). I've seen the magnificent temple in Madurai (or whatever they call it these days), and that was pretty spectacular, even though I was just a kid at the time. Maybe on my next trip to India.
    This year, I think it will be the Canadian Rockies, including Lake Louise.

  5. Details reveal a lot and we missed to see them most of the time. These beautiful photos come as a wonderful reminder!
