[Week #37]

[Week #196]

These are taken on the children's playgrounds of the Jain ashram Siddhachalam located in Braistown, NJ. It is a good hour-and-a-half drive from where we live but it is a beautiful place and we make sure we visit at least once a year. Very green with nature trails and a pond and above all it is tranquil, very quiet and peaceful. They also seve home-made kitchen-style food if you need any more motivation to go there.

These two photos exhibit two subtle styles of processing. The top photo is softer, brighter and more babylike whereas Akshra's photo is a bit more gritty, high-contrast and jarring to some extent. The composition is very similar so I wanted to highlight the difference in their ages via processing.
