Minimalism as Less Elements
|Photo by © Prakash Ghai|
This shot was taken at Jawahar Lal Nehru Marg, Jaipur. Opposite to Jawahar Kala Kendra, there is a lane that goes towards Jhalana Doongri.
Right at that corner, there are a few kiosks for food, tea and cigarettes. It was a holiday that day. This cigarette shop or "Pan Ki Thadi" (as we call it in Hindi) was located near those food shops. The shop was closed being a holiday and I liked the Pink Shutter of it a lot.
Just next to this Pan Shop, there was a handmade clay pottery shop. One of the clay pots was set aside, maybe because it was broken from the bottom and was found idle right in front of the Closed Pan Shop.
The Isolated Clay Pot contrasted so well against the pink shutter of the closed Pan Shop that I had to stop and take a shot of it. I went down on my knees for this one.
Also note that there is an abstract shadow triangle on the left and the three simple vertical lines on the closed shop shutter, adds brilliantly to the frame.
I did try a black and white version of this shot and posted it on my Facebook timeline but later, I reverted to the original irresistible Pink.
