Amazing Photos by Thushyanthan

Master Course student, Thushyanthan Amritalingam from Calgary, works in IT but otherwise is a top-notch photographer. He also takes photos into Adobe Lightroom and retouches them. We could not resist sharing with you this amazing series. He has taken color photos and turned many of them into sepia or black and white images. The effect is amazing.

Here is Tiruvalluvar at the Banyan Mandapam display area.

Silpis at work.

Inside Iraivan temple.

We put up the whole collection as a slideshow, along with one of our favorite Natchintanai: Engal Gurunathan by Pon Sundaralingam.

    Thank You so much for publishing this.
    It took me to higher Chakras.
    A wonderful thing to listen before going to bed.

    Amazing. Wonderful photos. I’d love it if each photograph could be viewed for 2-3 seconds longer.

  3. Sivakatirswami says:

    Agreed. I increased it to 4 seconds. That seems to give a little more time to view.

  4. Greg says:

    Wow. Some of the images look like fine Japanese etchings.

    Great music too! (who?).

    I think that if these were to be made available as photographs, framed or not, in the store that they would sell like hotcakes. ESP the bleached out ones. I’d buy one in a heartbeat…ESP if I knew the profit was going into the building fund (hint, hint 🙂

    Thank you very much for your kind comments. It was a joy to be on the Aadheenam grounds and bask in the serenity! And the photo opportunities were plenty to be found.

    Peace to you and yours.

    Aum Shanthi.
