Humble Balance

Humble Balance - Mysore, India

Humble Balance – Mysore, India

For my third and last image of Indian houses in the country, I feature a place that’s even more modest than the first two (here and here). This is in the same area around Chamundeshwari Temple that I’ve featured for the last week.

Though unquestionably humble, I find beauty and a fun challenge to create a balanced composition. The drying clothes adds details to a blank wall. The makeshift stand supports a potted plant. There’s effort shown here by the occupant; little touches to decorate a place to make it their own.

I believe everyone wants to put their stamp on a place, no matter how modest. I know I’m judging a place by its cover. You never know, the inside could be completely different — something totally unexpected. Perhaps the facade was merely a trick to throw off would-be burglars (and tourists).

I’m going to shift gears again, moving back to Austin for a short while, before showing the last remaining photos of India. As usual, a little variety for my viewers and myself. Shifting gears is good, occasionally, adding variety to my ongoing and relentless daily posts.

I have a free monthly newsletter that’s perfect for busy people. Signup for the Newsletter to get the best of my posts, old and new, plus additional content not available anywhere else.
