Let There Be Light by ratulupadhyay Let There Be Light by ratulupadhyay
Light can be gentle, dreamlike, bare, lucid, misty, clear, hot, enigmatic, falling, straight, calm and soft but what it can never be is gloomy. We can laugh as much as we want by glancing at those nave flies homing in on our light bulbs, but the irony of it all being that nobody loves those colorful, twinkling lights as much as our species does.

It has so aptly been quoted that people are indeed like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within. Just a little something to lighten up this festive season a wee bit more. My good wishes are always with you. Live long and prosper, while you still can. Happy Diwali!

I'm humbled, thanks a bunch for this Daily Deviation, my first! :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-12-09
Let There Be Light by =ratulupadhyay is a glorious photograph of strong contrasts. Not only is the contrast between light and dark so prominently conveyed here, there are also contrasts between the foreground and background as well as the bokeh which make this piece so powerful overall.

Haha, we've got quite a diverse culture over here - Christians, Hindus and Muslims.
I've got a multi-cultural family and friends as well so I get to learn about different traditions and celebrations :D

It is! But now most everyone here is not so much following tradition. Most everywhere you go there are fairy lights. It's really a pity cause the diyas are so much prettier.
You're velcome and you too! :}

Though it is of my opinion that the borders you put are a little distracting from the awesome you capture...
