Temple bell : Weekly Photo Challenge – On the way

Weekly Photo Challenge – on the way

On my walks in the North Eastern India , sometimes I  took  a detour to wander into my husband’s office. On the first day of my walk to the office complex , my eyes fell on a small temple shrine inside the  office grounds. What attracted me more was not the idol inside but the beautiful bells that hung outside it. I immediately took out my camera to capture the stunning golden bells against the contrasting red backdrop of the temple wall.

My better half who usually never appreciates something unless it is close to perfect was impressed by the way I perceived  a rather mundane looking temple bell and transformed it into a an object of art. What surprised me was that while all the office goers passed this temple on their way , no body really noticed these humble  looking bells or captured them through a lens.

But for me they were beautiful and so serene – a symbol of love,peace and tranquility.
