Frozen in time

We are all frozen in time.

This time before time. Where memories flash by, picture by picture. The puzzle comes together to form now. And now is when we go back. In a flash. We are back in time. Frozen once again. But in a different time. A different universe.



The greatest drama unfolds its arms to welcome you. To reel you in. Slowly at first, then all of a sudden. And you are there. You are frozen. You are here.

Everything else melts.

Jay said...

if time can be frozen I would love to be with u at the time where you hold the camera so still on your subject and the focus that you give it is magical

jawaher said...

i really wish that a time can be frozen :(

Minkey Chief said...

I'm confused. Are you Rahul Bose or aren't you? Or are you Upamanyu Chatterjee?

Why am I asking? Just curious. Pretty site.

chaos said...

nice experiment with lens... i'll try this myself...

but couldn't realte the entire story with the pic (unlike you!)...

BTW what camera/lens do you use...

. : A : . said...

Casablanca - Look forward to seeing your shot.

Jay, gulnaz, Prerona, iamnasra - Thanks.

Ramchi - LOL (you said that out loud)

aparna - Yes, yes. And?

jawaher - We all do. And it does.

Minkey Chief - Thanks for dropping by. Sorry, but I don't answer any questions related to my identity. ;-)

chaos - Do give it a go. Would like to see it. I use a Canon G6 most of the time currently.

Gangadhar said...

Lovely pic!!

Casablanca said...

;-)

And the plot thickens... (on my blog atleast).

Phoenix said...

well I'm here..and I'm frozen.
In time, in history
in some moments that never passed..

anyway, nice words, but seems like a rather incomplete post
somethign is missing!

aristera says said...

time and space.
they are so connected.
but the place is probably not.
aparna, stop trying to decipher.
some things are magic things.
you pull them apart, and they lose the magic.

. : A : . said...

Gangadhar - Thanks.

Casablanca - Hhhmmm.

Phoenix - It is not meant to be complete. There is always something more.

aristera says - Thanks for the perspective. They are connected. Magic should remain.

Paul said...

Have you been meditating?

Aradhita said...

Hola! Very Rorschach test type of photo...

transience said...

everything ends.

and begins again.

Brood Mode said...

i came
i read
i'm frozen
by the truth of the words

this always happens in those rare moments when "perfection" happens

the pic has a gr8 effect

mermaid said...

I tried not to read the words, and let the picture speak for itself. This is what it said to me:

"The water distorts the image, like a curtain on a window. I see a doorknob, opening to a moment in time. Be careful not to enter the moment too quickly."

J said...

there are moments when i want time to freeze and there are moments wheni want it to move over in the fast forward mode. But that never happens. And thats what makes life interesting.
After all, life doesnt have a remote control.

chaos said...

.:A:.... the issue here is that mine is SLR (Nikon F65), and for that i need to get rolls completed and then get it developed and get it digitized... a long process for which i am short of time :((
will keep this experiment in mind... infact i'll be trying quite a few you have already tried.
will post when i do :)

frissko said...

i'd love it if someone introduces u to a world called 'lucidity' and have u write some posts that belong there:)...
liked the picture...found the words cryptic...took me 2 reads to comprehend it(and am still not sure)..

rusty said...

Yeah...thats another trademark post....all there yet not quite there....Though the relative ambiguity is indeed compelling. The frozen contents are making me crave for an icecream right now !!!

aparna said...

www.gyspsynan.blogspot.com- its soooooooo not rorschach.rememeber they are essentially ink-blots.

Hope said...

Frozen there, while here, frozen here.

I always wonder what triggers us to freeze in time.

Euphoric Dreamer said...

wonderful picture :)

and nice words

Dreamy Eyed Gal said...

Aradhita, jaded, gypsynan, Brood Mode, rusty, EUPHORIC DREAMZ - Thanks.

chaos - Will look forward to it. Try a Digital SLR. :-)

Gypsy Girl said...

Frozen in drama, yet fluid in thought; enjoy the time, enjoy the moment, stay here, you choose where you want to be.

. : A : . said...

Gypsy Girl - Thanks. :-)

finnegan said...

And so you've illustrated my comment from the blog before. Hadn't read this first, and so there is knowledge crossing paths after the first click.

Casablanca said...

Tried the pic-through-a-glass, and got some not so encouraging comments. A bouquet looked like salad to some, and spring rolls to others :p

. : A : . said...

finnegan - There definitely is!

Casablanca - The beauty of it is to get different perspectives. Don't get discouraged.

aquamarine said...

SOunds like "The Butterfly Effect",
(Ashton Kutcher)

AquaM

aquamarine - Interesting perspective. Didn't think of it that way.

Itineranting said...

Really. Really hope you're in a profession which recognizes you're creativity.

. : A : . said...

Itineranting - So do I. ;-)
