The sun appeared between the twin grilled minaret of the mosque as its light reflected off the crescent and star that rose out of the dome on top of the mosque. It was beautiful, and surreal.
It was very hot outdoors & with people around, in one instant, the noise entering my ears from behind my back as kids sat in groups behind giggling and talking would switch to someone else talking or walking.
But another second where if I closed my eyes then I could easily imagine myself flying 10,000 ft. above the place looking at details, looking at people walking in line towards a place they claimed to have seen light in.
10,000 ft. Above or 10,000 ft. below, there's one thing i have realised in my 18 years of existence & that is, light or prime peace can not be achieved in the places people tell you to be in, it can't be the chanting in religious places, the walk in forests, amongst books or people... yes! peace can be achieved in all those places but only sometimes & only by a few.
Actual peace comes from within, Peace knit between the thoughts of space, life, people, bonds & ideas.
Later i sat in the mosque balcony as the sun set, watching while it picked the dark and misty folds of the rushing city and coloured the walls & red sandstone. I was overcome by the fabulous richness of the cityscape, the opulence of the sandstone architecture.
So overcome that i couldn't resist capturing it through my lens after feasting it with my eyes & that exactly is what i was there to do.
This is the concluding picture of the 'Jama Masjid' series & i, from the bottom of my heart want to thank you all for your appreciative & understanding remarks.
