53 Week Journey through the Land of Drapes and Colors: Week #47
For details on all the sarees I have posted so far, go here.
Remember my post about the abandoned railway line photoshoot a couple weeks ago! Well, I found another abandoned place. But this time it was an abandoned theme park inspired by biblical passages, constructed on a small hill in the middle of one of the towns close by. Although the park is closed now, it still has a working chapel and people can visit the grounds.
So, my friend, Preethi, and I decided to take a drive up there and do some fun photoshoot. The place now is really in a state of disrepair, but the roads leading up are still maintained well. We could walk around, looking at the ruins of the once active theme park. The roads actually go up the top of the mountain where a giant cross is hoisted. We had fun walking around, taking some pictures and at the same time looking at the ruins, and the view from the top of the mountain.
I wore this tricolor - pink, cream and green - Chiffon Crepe saree that I bought during my trip to India in January of 2008, a good 13 years ago. The entire saree has beautiful pearl, stone and thread work hand-stitched in pink and white. I paired it with the blouse that came along with the saree, tailor-stitched. I accessorized with gold earrings and necklace; and matching bangles on both of my wrists. The view here is from the top of the hill with the town in the background.
Some more pictures of me on this abandoned theme park and the huge cross in the background.
And how can I forget one with a mask, that too a perfectly matching one.
Some of the pictures of my friend too. We managed to capture some last of the fall colors too.
From the theme park we went to this hanging bridge. But by then it was raining and we didn’t get to take a whole lot of good pictures there. We did manage a few though, some on the bridge; and some while returning back. And yes, we changed our outfits after we were finished with the theme park. :P
Another fun photoshoot despite the weather creating hurdles; and thanks to my friend indulging me in my ideas.
