Birla Temple Jaipur | Silhouette

Birla Mandir or Birla Temple in Jaipur is popular among tourists despite not being a heritage temple. It was built by Hindustan Charitable Trust and opened for public only in 1988.

The first picture also captures the silhouette of people;  the second one doesn’t.

Clicked during evening time, almost an hour before sunset and shot with a Circular Polarizer filter mounted on the lens; making it perfect for the theme Half-Light.

Birla Temple faces west direction and none of these two pictures have captured the building of the Temple. These pictures face away from the temple towards the setting Sun. A separate post on Birla Temple will follow soon.

      1. That’s true dear. I find lesser time these days with office work occupying my time in professional life and when at home, my 7 months daughter gives me so much pleasure. In the midst of all this, whenever I get time, I hop on to WordPress. But I am enjoying with my little one and don’t want to miss these sweet moments of her growth. So, WP has taken a back seat as of now 🙂

      1. Arv, thanks for the response. Officially on the BW blogroll is recorded:
        “vignettes and musings of one who has lived a long life – nostalgia, culture, and education.” In a nutshell, I’m the grandmother of the bunch, with very few bloggers older than I. I have been doing grammar and punctuation for BW. I write some poetry, haiku mostly. I follow some daily prompts, enter some six word challenges, write some limericks. Guess that covers most of it. I have very serious pages on my sites also. Did you notice, no photos – your speciality. I don’t have the equipment nor knowledge to be join that group of talented people, but I do like to look at interesting and beautiful pictures. How is all that for getting acquainted? I have a post on BW home page called “But Not Always.” East to find. Try me there. I’ll see you.

      2. Thanks for all those details. I actually browse through your blog and the post gave me impression that it has to something with religion. I found it safer to ask you. We all are different, so it’s quite okay to not post any pictures. some bloggers post a picture sourced from internet with their poetry though. Even I’m not a poetry or story enthusiast! It’s beyond me! Will check out your blog. BTW where are you from?
        Thanks for derailed reply oneta! 🙂

  1. Arv, I do write a lot of inspirational pieces. I am a Christian and that will show in much of my writings. As I said I have static pages that are relating almost exclusively to my Christian faith. I’m mid USA – Oklahoma. Communicating with other religions does not bother me but my faith will show in most of my stuff. 😀 😀
