Lalbagh Flower Show – January 2012 (Bangalore)

If you are in Bangalore by the end of January, you should just not miss the Lalbagh Flower show, hosted in the glass house at Lalbagh Gardens, Bangalore. This year’s edition – Lalbagh Flower Show 2012 was the 100th edition of this bi-annual event, it seems! Ok, this post will do less talking because the pictures shown below (taken at the event) will talk for themselves 🙂













I took many more photos during the Lalbagh flower show, and you can have a look at them from the below video slide-show:

PS: There is one important photographic technique I follow. It has nothing to do with F or iris gap or shutter speed or any such photographic term. Its pure mathematics – If one takes 100 photos, there is a high probability that at least 10 of them will accidentally turn out to be good! 😀 😛 😀

    I had visited the flower show once when we were in Bangalore. It is breathtakingly beautiful…your pictures show it! Each and every frame is beautiful. For me, the best picture is the 4th one!

    I am already following your technique!

      I wonder how many flowers they used to create that fourth picture – Water falling out of jug flower arrangement. It seems that they used 4,00,000 flowers to create that the arrangement in the first picture! The very idea of doing something like that is both interesting and challenging. Of course, its a treat to the eyes 🙂

      Following the same technique – You too Brutus? 😀

      I was in Bangalore for a couple of days but was occupied in shuttling between Hosur and some tourist places in Bangalore, this time. Next time I come, I’ll definitely ping you. You should have gone to this show – This time, it was too good! I have gone to one flower show before 3 years, that was not as good as this. But, I am sure they will come up with something better next time!

      Thanks SM. The show was indeed excellent. I guess a lot of effort and talent went behind organizing this one!

    The flowers are so lovely to look at and so pleasant to smell – Optimism.
    So many flowers plucked just to please man – Pessimisn
    The fourth one is the best one and required 4,00,000 flowers – Is it Sufism ?
    Just wondering.

    Makes me go a bit J 🙁
    That buddhist stupa arrangement and the flowing carpet of flowers is brilliant! If only I have a job as flower arranger in Lalbagh, I would be so overwhelmed to take up that job!! I lived in BLR for 2.5 years, but missed this flower festival all the time. Thanks for bringing it to our view! Visually appealing, totally!

    • Rajesh K

      Ah, you are putting up so many photo posts in your own blog and are J of this small photo post! Don’t tell me 🙂 I have gone to a Lalbagh flower show before three years, but that one was not as good as this. Perhaps they’ll make it even better in future. Don’t miss it next time when you are in Bangalore.
