photoblog image Amber Fort

Amber Fort

Based on the scripture of arts (Shilpa Shastra) and scripture of science (Vastu Shastra), the capital city of Jaipur was conceived by the architect Vidyadhar Bhattacharya. It was named after its founder, Jai Singh II, who was looking for an alternative to his then water shortage-stricken capital. Jaipur is also significant for the three sizable forts of hulking proportions in a relatively small area (the Amber Fort also being a UNESCO heritage site).

I thought at first the figure was a statue but now I think it is a real person. He makes the image.
Ayush Basu: I am pleased I was there to capture it, Alan.
Un très beau cadrage sur cette façade oeuvre d'art.
Bonne journée
Ayush Basu: I am pleased you like it, Pascale.

I can see it’s glory and the need to preserve it Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It appears they do have a learning curve towards the restoration and preservation techniques, Chad.
Excellent capture, Ayush! The head looking out really adds to the shot. I love the patterns.
Ayush Basu: I liked the patterns too, Mary.

What a great picture Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Anne.
There is some beautiful work here Ayush.
Ayush Basu: It is quite staggering, given the size of this place, Brian.
Wonderful decoration but the face steals the picture!
Ayush Basu: I was looking at the arched window, when she popped in, Bill!
But is the figure of women facing up painted? It seems so real
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, she just popped by the window and I scrambled to get this shot, Claudio.
I would really like to visit India one day.
Ayush Basu: The desert province of Rajasthan is certainly highly recommended, LC.
That is wonderful.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Michael.
Great shot, Ayush - and wonderful architecture. A place I'd love to visit!
Ayush Basu: Thank you. It was quite a visual overload, Tom.

This is great timing here, Ayush smile I love this shot. Have a great weekend!!!
Ayush Basu: I am pleased I got her in the frame, Astrid. Thank you.
It is predicted it will be warmer and wetter this weekend.
And you just happened to catch her at the right time, Ayush?????
Ayush Basu: Yes that was very lucky, my timing, Ginnie. smile
you know, all those complicated patterns would drive me crazy after a while lol... the woman's head peeking out scared me at first! i couldn't tell if she was real or part of the painting!
Ayush Basu: Yes, all those rulers probably got artisans by the thousands to put all that level of detail in those massive structures, Elaine!
