Landscapes while wandering the planet
Travel Tales from Ladakh…..Naturally
It is my last day in Ladakh. It makes me sad that my memory system remembers this fact, when it could have other more important things to take care of. But it is a resolve to come back again, perhaps sooner than later , and to soak myself in this experience all over again.
As I head back to Leh, I try to capture almost everything that I can see through to the lens. Even though Ladakh is a photographer’s heaven, it does not translate so in the pictures that I take now. Take this shot above as an example….On the surface, it looks OK to me, but I sense something is missing. It does not attach itself to me through an emotional cord, as do some of my other pictures. I guess, you have to very intimately know the scene (in Ladakh) that you want to capture and that comes from the heart. As this realization ticks in, I give up and just try to enjoy myself under the open skies and the clean air. Here’s a shot without which a mention of Ladakh is perhaps incomplete! Until next time I venture into Ladakh….SoLong!!
Tomorrow, I fly back to Delhi.
