This time I am before you with a photograph, titled “Beautiful Past”. This photograph was clicked in the winters of 2012 in “Sui” village situated near to Lohaghat (Uttarakhand). While strolling in a street of this village I suddenly watched a traditional blue painted house which was made of wood. This house attracted me deeply due to its conventional construction. The charm of this building doubled when an old lady in yellow dress reached the window. She seemed looking for someone. I did not delay and clicked a few frames. This is one of them. The chief thing which fascinates me in this picture is the presence of complementary colours, i.e. blue and yellow. Occurrence of complementary colours, such as blue and yellow, green and red, orange and light blue etc. adds appeal to the images. Furthermore I like the presence of old lady with a conventional house in this picture. Both co-relate to each other very well.
I used a Nikon D 90 SLR camera. The lens was Nikon 18-105 mm.
Exposure was f -10; 1/400 Sec. The ISO was set at 200.
