CFFC- Sand or Dirt


“In the empire of the desert, water is the king and shadow is the queen” Mehmet Murat ildan

“The sand doesn’t care if you’re made of flesh or stone.” Joaquin Lowe

Did you ever drive in sand dunes alone?

If you experienced the sand dunes, how you feel if you were left alone or are stranded.

It’s scary.

Not many species live in the sand dunes.

But for humans nothing is impossible.

And as a tourist in the company of others, you enjoy the guided desert safari!

Dessert Lesson

“It is very hard to live in silence. The real silence is death and this is terrible. To approach this silence, it is necessary to journey to the desert. You do not go to the desert to find identity but to lose it, to lose your personality, to be anonymous. You make yourself void. You become silent. You become more silent than the silence around you. And then something extraordinary happens: you hear silence speak”  Edmond Jabes

Colour is a power which directly influences the soul-Wassily Kandinsky

I never knew the name of a colour called ‘Burly wood’  till Terri Webster Schrandt

introduced to us this colour in her Sunday Stills Burlywood  Photography challenge.

Burlywood colour looks like this.


It’s a medium-light shade of brown. It’s made up of red, green and blue.

It’s seen everywhere in Nature be a tree trunk, or leaves, beach sand, desert etc.

The only requirement is that you have to look for it.

Desert Sand

“Love me or hate me, the desert seems to say, this is what I am and this is what I shall remain”  unknown

Patience and humour are two camels that can take you through any desert of your life, you may experience


“Science is merely an extremely powerful method of winnowing what’s true from what feels good” Carl Sagan


Winnower is a device used for winnowing, wherein chaff from the grain is separated through the current of air.

This one used to be popular in Indian homes now rarely used by the urban population, but still seen in the villages.

The sound produced during winnowing can be music.

Burlywood Leaf


“They tell you to turn into a new leaf and then complain about your faded colour” Nitya Prakash

Have you noticed how the colour of a leaf changes during autumn?

The change is truly colourful.

Various shades of yellow, orange, purple, red and brown invite us for a free visual treat.

Do you feel sad for the fallen leaves?

No need my friend.

“In every change, in every falling leaf, there is some pain, some beauty. And that’s the way new leaves grow.” Amit Ray

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Camera never lies! Are you sure?

Camels in the desert
“Believe no-one, doubt everything and remember, everyone lies” Prof. Nick Fennimore”

In the above photograph, if you are careless and miss the shadows, chances are that you may think of a monster camel with one head & two bodies.

As an amateur photographer, I always wonder whether the camera lies.

It’s said photographers evoke emotions through their photos and the capture is a replica of the scene whatever is presented before them.

And in 1987, the great philosopher Michael Franks coined the popular phrase

“The camera never lies”

Probably he meant that camera directly captures the scene for the interpretation and that and there is no guesswork as in ‘Modern Art’

The Hollywood Actor Cesar Romero has a different opinion about cameras and I agree with him. He said and I quote

“They say camera never lies. It lies Everyday. “

Not just the camera even the photographer lies as per Richard Avedon.His quote

Camera lies all the time. It’s all it does is lie, because when you choose this moment instead of this moment, when you… the moment you’ve made a choice, you’re lying about something larger. ‘Lying’ is an ugly word. I don’t mean lying. But any artist picks and chooses what they want to paint or write about or say. Photographers are the same.

And modern days manipulative photography is not doing anything good.

To clear the doubt once for all, Roland Barthes expressed brilliantly

“Photography never lies: or rather it can lie as to the meaning of the thing…never to its existence.”
