Diwali Celebrations: Photo A Day - Light

Day 20 of "May Photo A Day Challenge" : Light


What could be more fitting for today's prompt than our very own festival of lights... Diwali!



I took this picture in Patna, in the year 2010... another one of my candid "balcony shots". The two buildings, lit up with Diwali lights, were at the far end of my lane (to the right of my balcony). No fancy equipment was used. Just my 5MP Cannon Powershot on 'night mode' without flash. I have cropped and water-marked the photograph in Adobe Photoshop.

Also, here's some more recent night-time photography. I'd already blogged these pictures last month, so didn't use them again for today's prompt, but please DO take a look... I quite like how they've come out. :)


This is my 20th post for 2013 May Photo A Day Challenge.

@Afshan - Very true. We usually don't go out in the town area when it's too crowded, but I could get some really awesome Diwali light photos if we did!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

:D Thanks Meena!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Naina - Yupp... and the Diwali diyas all lit up!

Thanks Janu :D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Shilpa, we only went as far as Amrapali circle to check out the lights... and wow! Some of the lighting there was just brilliant! Can't even begin to imagine what the rest of the town must have looked like!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Smita, you won't believe this, but I've been in Jaipur for over an year, and I still haven't been to Bapu Bazaar! :(

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Shail. Yeah, they are so good for experimenting, except that your family gets really annoyed with the fact that you're spending so much time with your camera instead of participating in the celebrations! :P

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Kajal :D

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Pallavi... delightful AND exhausting Diwali! :P

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Oh yes, Arshad... it is a fun festival!

Jyothi said...

lovely way to decorate an entire building for Diwali. Nice. Balcony and car photography are the best! And most of mine are taken from my phone. :) It is amazing how you got such clear night shots.

Look at all that light! So colourful! :)

Nandana said...

It's so nice that everyone is doing their own unique Diwali, no pictures are alike. Lovely this one!

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

@Pixie - Yeah it really does look colorful, doesn't it?

Chicky a.k.a. Kaddu said...

Thanks Nandana :D

@Jyothi - I just found your comment on this post in the spam folder! Really strange. Blogger spam filters are becoming unreliable now I guess.
I don't get too good pics from my phone, but my camera is good, ya... even though it's a really old one. It's night-mode is quite decent... I took this pic without flash in the night-mode setting of my camera.
