photoblog image Portals

Portals

After having looked at the living beings of Jodhpur, now I present some commonly seen views on the streets of inner Jodhpur city. The painted woman, although is perhaps fairly recent, is done in a traditional style and most likely depicts some character from a religious legend. And the door is a fairly common place entrance to a household courtyard, but I liked the robust feel to it.

One of your recent best, Ayush.

an intriguing artwork
Ayush Basu: I wish I had more sharpness in the image, Sherri.
Some great colours here, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I liked the colour schemes in general, in Jodhpur, Frank.
Oh isn't that beautiful, Ayush! I love your photograph!
Ayush Basu: I wish I had more sharpness in the image, Elizabeth.
J'aime beaucoup, tant la porte que la peinture murale.
Bonne journée Ayush
Ayush Basu: It was a nice journey for the senses, walking down that neighbourhood, Pascale.

She looks happy and is carrying a bowl of food
Ayush Basu: I imagine it is that school of painting that always render faces this way, Chris.
Now you're reminding me of portals we saw in Malta two years ago, Ayush...except this one is obviously NOT Roman Catholic! I bet you could come up with quite a collection?
Ayush Basu: I recall some postings from Malta, Ginnie. This would be some religious figure i Hindu mythology, that is my best guess.

This is wonderful, Ayush. Love the crop and the colours. Great details in the door and the woman is very well painted.
Ayush Basu: I wish I had more sharpness in the image, Astrid.

I like the painting especially. I wonder what lies beyond the door?
Ayush Basu: I think it could be a large family of several generations, with a squarish courtyard that this door opens into, Alan.

The door does ha e a fortified, yet elegant appearance Ayush.
Ayush Basu: In appearance, yes, Chad. I am guessing this is one of those doors that has a horizontal beam slotted into hooks behind, but I could be wrong.

is she carrying a little kitteh cat? or is that a cat shaped chip in the paint? i really like that door!
Ayush Basu: A good conjecture, Elaine, although I doubt it was a kitty. I suppose the paint just chipped off and nobody could be bothered to touch it up. I like that door too.
These two go together very well, it is almost as if the lady is approaching home.
Ayush Basu: Yes, Brian, although I did not think of it that way, I like your spin on it.
She has a benevolent air Ayush
Ayush Basu: That is how they were depicted mostly in that local school of painting, Bill.
The door is nice.
Ayush Basu: I loved it too, Mary.
The door is nice.

I think that door is special. Great picture all round.
Ayush Basu: Yes, it is much more than basic functional, Louis.
I like the pastel colors of the image, they place it in the dream
Ayush Basu: Almost everything in this neighbourhood is enthralling for the senses, Claudio.
Lots of local atmosphere...
Ayush Basu: I agree, but I wish I had more sharpness in the image, Larry.
I quite like the colour of the door. Very cooling.
Ayush Basu: Yes, that does look like something of an Asian perspective, isn't it, LC?

I love the lady and the doorway and the blues and gold colours.
