A little late for World Photography Day. Here's one from the darkest corner of my archive. Instead of talking about the subject, I'm gonna share what photography has thought me over the years. This form of art can be potent, equally constructive and destructive. It's a double edged sword, where our motives don't usually go inline with the outcome. In hopes to capture the perfect image, we might lose our sight, succumbing to non ethical practices. For attention and competitive goals, we tend to secretly envy others and push our boundaries. Human nature isn't it? But the truth is, what remains are the emotions we experience while being in the moment. The way we see the world through a lens, the people we meet and the opportunities we are blessed with that one can only imagine. I've mentioned in my previous post, whereby the growth of our spirit and consciousness determines the type of energy you're emitting back into the universe, and how it comes back at you. Next, how you utilise that to make this world a better place. What was I thinking while making this image? I'm fortunate enough to share an intimate space with a stranger in close proximity, yet coexist. I'm also grateful of being out there, while it's only a dream to many. Everything else in between is expendable. It might sound harsh, but real.
Close encounters.... Indian Eagle Owl Bubo Bengalensis 17/08/2019 Puliampatti, Tirupur, Tamilnadu The Indian eagle-owl, also called the rock eagle-owl or Bengal eagle-owl (Bubo bengalensis), is a species of large horned owl found in the Indian Subcontinent. They were earlier treated as a subspecies of the Eurasian eagle-owl. They are found in hilly and rocky scrub forests, and are usually seen in pairs. They have a deep resonant booming call that may be heard at dawn and dusk. They are typically large owls, and have "tufts" on their heads. They are splashed with brown and grey, and have a white throat patch with black small stripes. #bbcearth#birds_captures #ip_birds #birdingphotography#birds_bees_flowers_n_trees #birding_lounge #wildplanet#birdsofindia#indianbirds#birds_brilliance #sanctuaryasia#raw_birds #natureinfocus#birdsofindiansubcontinent#birdingdaily#birds_4you #saevuswildlife#indianbirdsphotography#birdsadored#nikkor200_500mm #nikond7200 @natgeoasia @nikonasia @asia_photo_magazine @asian_photography_magazine @wildlife.hd @wildlifeindia @sanctuaryasia @saevuswildlife @naturein_focus @natural_history_museum @eye_spy_birds @elite_raptors @bird_brilliance @birdsonearth @birds.nature @birds_captures @indianwildlifeofficial @bbcearth @discovery @wildplanetphotomag @wild.planet @birds.nature @best_birds_of_world @birds_illife @nikonindiaofficial @strabopixelclub @raw_birds @the_united_photographers @birdphotographers_of_india
