Applying Prisma filters to digital photographs is getting mainstream. Attempted to convert a Prisma image to Water colour instead, of the cricketer who remained a purist in an era of switch hits and is of course my favourite cricketer of all time – Rahul Dravid. Reference – file photo of Dravid taken at the ICC 2002 awards where he was the ICC Player of the Year and ICC Test Player of the year.
‘She looked at the grey November sky, And asked “why did I have this terrible fate?’
The sky said “Everyone who is born is in the same state”..
.. And she withered by the day, as people trampled her on the way
The rabbits and squirrels asked where’s she, a beauty we all liked to see
But here she lies, hidden in history
Oh life, thou remainest a mystery’
– Adapted and modified excerpt from a high school poem.
“When a person starts to talk about their dreams, it’s as if something bubbles up from within. Their eyes brighten, their face glows, and you can feel the excitement in their words.” – John Maxwell
This photo was taken while idling away at Lustgarten, Berlin around late July, 2013. Sometimes, it’s just good to unleash the kid in you to marvel at these soap bubbles (and of course burst some!). Simple pleasures, one might say..
