Ochre

Crater Lake at Ranthambore Fort

Camouflaged Ruins.

That morbid shade of Ochre is a hue I often consider displeasing to the eye. Ochre to my mind was synonymous with ‘dull’ until this picture; taken in October 2013 at Ranthambore Fort in Rajasthan.

A crater lake atop the fort , with a glorious perfectly-camouflaged ruin in its midst is an interesting subject to anyone with a camera-in-hand. Yet, for me, it is how striking the ochre is, that makes for an interesting visual.

{Aside from adding my signature below, this photograph has not been spruced up or edited in any manner- this is just as it was on that warm October morning and to my delight “The light was perfect”!}

About Chiteisri: The Gypsy Diaries

Its a Fair Warning to all =) While there may be some things about me that everyone knows ... There will always be something about me which nobody can or ever will, figure out! But for a typical introduction - I am a former Law student from India, who is a writer and traveler at heart. I am 27 and have been to 28 countries (and counting) and this blog is a humble attempt at taking a part of my life, experiences, holidays, learnings and dreams to another world of imagination in cyber-space. I know that the world has its fair share of problems, and there is plenty to despair about out there. But I truly believe that this world can be diverse, plural and inclusive and yet one entity - humanity. I am the Dreamer, a lost soul - slowly finding her way back home i.e. to herself! I write. I read. I paint. I dream. I learn. I listen. I empathize. I travel, and no matter who or what I become - these I shall always do! https://chiteisri.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/defining-a-me-at-23/
