Apollonia (modern day Susa)-Eastern Libya
The sea sketches in it’s own way. Ever since I took up photography and sketching
in a bit more systematic way, new things have opened up even in routine.
Add to that, the music of sounds, (which you cannot hear in this sequence) or the
scent of sea air mixed with sand and the views of the hills nearby where mountain air
gives a distinct scent of sea-mountain and we have a lovely blend.
This feeling was what I first got when I would go for walks past the Ganga in
the Rishikesh region of India, where the great river first comes out from the Himalayas
to merge with the plains.
The scents, sounds, and sights all make a symphony….it started a while ago, and the
process is maturing, churning and enriching.

Studying some of the works and underlying themes of works of art can be an uplifting exercise. Subtle is the penetrating influence of art. We, who live in the physical nature, are unable to feel it readily. Sketching can open some of these windows. Can the baton charge of moral codes and religious scriptures awaken the subtle inner nature?
