The term Fresco refers to a form of art. Frescos is the plural form of fresco. The origin of fresco is from the Italian word affresco. Fresco in its pure form is the art of painting upon damp, fresh, lime plaster typically on walls and ceilings during the renaissance and other early time periods. Fresco painting technique was used in Ajanta caves which were between c. 200 BCE and 600 (Source: Wikipedia). Another prominent example of using fresco form of painting in the Indian context is the Brihadiswara temple in Thanjavur, Tamilnadu.

Digital frescos is an attempt to showcase nature as we see and share the frescos created whilst traversing the sunlit path. The left corner of the banner in this website – Red Green and Blue squares represents the digital frescos. Just as the yogi seeks light, which is the guiding force for his aspirations, we photographers also seek and use light to capture as frescos the beauty and bounty which “The Mother” nature has offered. The right corner of the banner represents the traversal on the Sunlit Path.

Based in Bengaluru, I am a weekend photography warrior attempting to spend time with nature and in the process making frescos which I will share through this web site. Making digital frescos of birds interest me the most and Raptors (Birds of Prey) are of special interest. Every attempt is made to ensure that the subjects are treated ethically, after all if there are no subjects then were is the photographer? My heartfelt thanks to my wife for the support and encouragement on the frequent expeditions I take and also the help in designing and customizing this website.

I will be making updates to the site frequently adding more Frescos, do bookmark this site and check out later. Your comments, suggestions and critique are much appreciated and You could reach me thru email at alwansATdigitalfrescos.com or can use the contact form in the web site.

Cheers
