Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist

Minimalist can “effectively tell a story, in spite of its relative simplicity”, as rightly pointed out by Jen Hooks in this week’s challenge.

BangkokThis is the replica of Eiffel Tower which i located on top of a skyscraper building in Bangkok, while i was waiting for my train to the airport. Who says, one needs to always visit Paris to see the imposing tower..!

Bali Kuta Beach

I found this cutie feeling cozy in the morning sand on the Kuta Beach, Bali. To me, it makes an impression as if it has been suddenly alerted by the gushing waves of the ocean. i liked the texture of the sand in this photo.

Bride HandsThese are the hands of a newly wed Indian bride. They are adorned with bright red, beautiful bangles or chuda, the symbol of a married woman in India. Mehndi designs (Indian tattoo) are also seen on the hands, though they are little faded now. Know more about Indian marriage and four phases of life according to Hindu religion, here.

Statue of Liberty Newyork

This is the photo of the famous Statue of Liberty in New York. I had always been intrigued by what does the female figure – Libertas – the Roman goddess of Freedom carry in her hand. Finally, when i visited the statue, i clicked this shot to know that she is holding some kind of book or tablet, with an inscription of Roman numerals JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (4th July, 1776), the day on which USA gained its independence.

Buddhist Monk Gangtok

I could not stop myself from clicking this shot when i was in Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim (Indian state). I visited this monastery when i saw this Buddhist monk with a red robe peeking out from the window of his habitat.

Hussain Sagar Lake HyderabadI was strolling at the sunset around the Hussain Sagar Lake in Hyderabad (India) when i saw this lone Goose swiftly wading through the water, making the way for itself.

Below are four photographs i shot in Minneapolis, USA.

Lake Calhoun Minneapolis

Croquet in Minneapolis

Let us play a game of croquet.

State Fair Minneapolis

I had visited Minnesota State Fair in September this year when i saw this small plane carrying the promotional banner, and hovering over the entire park. Can you make out the words written over there 🙂

Minneapolis Winter

This is the infamous winter of Minneapolis, which i experienced in Feb – March this year, when temperatures were down till -30 degree Celsius. Its already getting cold here now, and I do not want early snowfall here.
