Of Tile - Chandigarh, India

Posted by
Scott Rippee (Fresno, United States) on 19 April 2010 in Lifestyle & Culture.

This statue is at the Rock Garden in Chandigarh, India. This was one of the more interesting pieces with it placed away from the other figures. I like the eerie, almost alien face.

"Nek Chand, a government official who started the garden secretly in his spare time in 1957. Today it is spread over an area of forty-acre (160,000 m²), it is completely built of industrial & home waste and thrown-away items." -Wikipedia

NIKON D80 1/125 second F/5.0 ISO 400 105 mm (35mm equiv.)

Thanks for the visit. Your comments, critiques, and suggestions are more than welcome!

I looked up in Wikipedia, your photo seems to show a sculpture in the Rock Garden. I like your Indian series and this one is a wonderful detail and well cut.

@NaDu: NaDu, I completely forgot to add the description for this photo! Thanks for the comment and your note on the series. A few more India photos coming and then I'll be rethinking what I'm going to be posting.

@Phil: I think I obsessed over photography to much for a bit and got burnt out. I have the itch and I'm starting back into it again. This is also the last of the India photos so I'm on to new stuff now. Thanks for you comment!
