Standing Amidst The Abyss by ratulupadhyay Standing Amidst The Abyss by ratulupadhyay
As we all are celebrating the World Photography Day today, I thought of sharing something that is iconic to our city, something that shines forth the heritage and exquisiteness that surrounds us each and everyday of our lives, and as a tribute to all my fellow photographers and artists around the whole wide world. Cheers to us.

As it has been quoted by Rabindranath Tagore, Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. And there I was standing amidst the abyss where the illustrious long forgotten past meets our generation that seems to prefer texting on their smartphones, rather than having a look around and give a glance to this magnificent piece of architecture. Science will never be able to reduce the value of a sunset to arithmetic. Nor can it reduce friendship or statesmanship to a formula. This one was clicked at Safdarjung Tomb, New Delhi, India.

It sure does shine with radience of your country, and such truth to your words,
Science will never be able to reduce the value of a sunset to arithmetic.
Nor can it reduce friendship or statesmanship to a formula. It can only
inhance it some what too......and even bring fellow photographers together...
I just met my first friend from DA....to do a photo session in my town...it was fun...
Happy photography day world...

Ah, I had a photowalk with one of my dA friends too last week. There was quite a bit of fuss over this same topic, that's what empty minds tend to do anyway :D You know how we wouldn't be sitting here on dA if it wasn't for science and stuff. It's a never-ending discussion. :D

Perfect subject matter for HDR and beautifully produced. The detail in the stairwells helps provide that impression of quality. Well done.
