Wildlife photos – with a poem – by Tarpan.
Not wild as such
Not mild as such,
These are all just clicked in
When I took just a few steps
Into our neighbourhood,
Into the nearby paddyfield
Among them, a few have been edited a little.
Otherwise, all of them are just as they appeared
In front of my camera
As a gift of the moment.
‘Learning photography’ is another art,
Maybe much patience and practice is needed, but
‘learning from photography’ has a whole significance
As far as a seeker is concerned,
Especially if we try with living beings.
One may be a camera expert, technically skilled, but
How challenging it is to absorb
Their living moments as they are, the spontaneity, let-go, alertness, aliveness, silence,
joyfulness, aloneness, togetherness,
Vulnerability and all.
There is no post-process in photography, for sure;
It is always a present process,
Present process only.
