Garden Flowers, Auroville, Tamilnadu, India
Auroville is a special place for me! If you shrink the world in to a town and put it out there, it is Auroville. It is almost a forest and yet the people who live there live with a passion. They create some of the most beautiful things that comes out of India.
The area used to be a severely eroded and arid land but because of the efforts of the volunteers over decades it is now a wonderful forest with residences for Aurovilians.
There are multiple reasons for presenting this photograph of Periwinkle flowers in Black and White.
- Periwinkle, to the Germans represent the ‘Flower of Immortality’.Isn’t that interesting??
- From the days of Ansel Adams, Black and White photography has remained an Art mastered by a few and still high in demand. Black and White photography certainly has lived longer and has high value in the world of Smart Phone Photography.
- Of Course, Auroville is a place that rose like a Phoenix from a severely eroded region to a fully wooded haven.
I am just so thrilled to photograph Periwinkle flowers at Auroville !
