107. As time goes by


What do you see in this photograph? Are to able to identify the withered tree? I thought of so many things while seeing this. Sometimes the tree looked like a hand pointing the finger towards the bird. For that I thought of naming it ‘Hey you!’ A friend of mine named it ’12 o’clock’. But I din’t click this photograph for what it can be, even it was more of a luck, I waited for half an hour to capture a bird close to the tree. I captured a withered tree with a feeling I wanted to convey and I think it is best to name it on that only. What do you think?
Din’t upload last night as I was not able to get the right words for the title and I wanted it to be perfect. I have slowly realizing the importance of captions in an image. A caption is like a hint to the viewer of what you want to say. Earlier I hesitated to stress so much on captions as I believe in the language of photographs and if you use words, you can just say everything into words. But I realized now that people need it, otherwise it becomes any random shot. Everything has to be named.

  1. maybe this is one of the most liked image from your blog. and seriously it has to have a caption. i too tried to think of one but still not able to come up with something rigid. too many different subjects can be related to this image. simple but meaningful, congrats.

  2. @mayur This is one of my favorite images. Its really very difficult for me to describe a image using some words. Thanks 🙂
