This post has been on my mind since a long time, but i just never got to composing it – the lazy ass that i am. The seed of the idea was sown by this song, that i was and still am impressed by. The photographs you will see below were made at locations sprinkled across India. But via this song i somehow could put them all in one space, in context. This is my interpretation of the song. This post is completely inspired by a song, hence the post name. Plan to tackle this idea in future posts as well. And i know, this idea will either be completely liked, or completely disliked.
Either ways, do let me know:)
Now lets get to the post.
The grass was greener…
The Light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded…
The dawn mist glowing…
The water flowing…
The endless river…
Forever… and ever…..
— Pink Floyd
Do check out the song by clicking on its name, particularly the instrumental section following the lines i have quoted above.
“I walk a lonely road,
The only one that i have ever known,
Dont know where it goes,
But it’s home to me and i walk alone…”
I was thoroughly impressed with this song, when i first heard it. At a certain level i guess everyone among us can relate to the four lines above. I definitely could when i had just passed out of college and was posted at various locations, thanks to my job. There used to be times when i just walked alone for miles, without a care in the world. Thats when i began to appreciate the song even more.
I have been inspired by a lot of songs, and tried to freeze the, in my memory via images. This one song in particular has motivated me to click a series of images.
