The Mae De Deus Church is spectacular at night lit up in orange and yellow light which bounce off its white walls to create a glow effect. Its almost as if the church was made of paper with bulbs inside which glow radiating the light out its thin

After the safari, which was exciting with domestic dogs, cows, crows, and few tiger paw marks (which i felt were freshly done for our sake), we managed to see an elephant which was

Tiger loves you

“Oh, the tiger will love you. There is no sincerer love than the love of food.”
George Bernard Shaw

 

The recent Airtel initiative of “Only 1411 Tigers left in India” is an eye catcher. That’s the population of people in my colony. Would our children get to see this magnificent animal or would it be hard for them to believe that the animal that Durga (Hindu God of power) rides

Twilight photography is fun, as the sky turns orange after sunset and the entire landscape turns into a dark silhouette. This one is at Mumbai. Its always good to set the camera at a specific f-stop and exposure, and then click

The Conditions of a Solitary Bird

12 May 2010 | 2 comments » Add a comment


The conditions of a solitary bird are five:

 - The first, that it flies to the highest point;
 - The second, that it does not suffer for company, not even of its own kind;
 - The third, that it aims its beak to the skies;
 - The fourth, that it does not have a definite color;
 - The fifth, that it sings very softly.

Clicked this snap during the monsoons in 2009, loved the painting effect this snap gives with a solitary bird flying high.

Bridge at Kangra

28 Apr 2010 | no comments » Add a comment


Clicked this at Kangra, while we were crossing the bridge, from a moving car through the windshield. The blurred effect towards the ends give it a small element of motion and the wide angle camera helped capture the full width of the bridge.

 

I wonder what happens when a politician comes to a bridge… does he double cross it?

Troglodyte (Caveman) to “The Thinker”

23 Mar 2010 | no comments » Add a comment


Rodin created “The Thinker” as one of the pieces for his work “The Gates of Hell” which was based on the scenes from the first section called “The Inferno” from “The Divine Comedy” of Dante (The Divine Comedy is an epic poem depicting the soul’s journey towards God through Dante’s travel across Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven). Some argue that “The Thinker” was created to represent Adam who sat and

How does one leave all possessions to live a simple spiritual life. As I look into the eyes of this monk, I see someone at peace with himself. But my peace is got to me by my latest electronic gadgets, be it a mobile, an ipod, speakers or an LCD TV. Do I envy

Kangra

10 Mar 2010 | no comments » Add a comment


On the way to Dharamshala we came across the picturesque town of Kangra. At one point this place was captured and ruled by Nepal, but were driven away later by Ranjh, and remained as a princely state under British India, and finally merged with Himachal Pradesh post independence.

 

For my Feb 2010 Himachal Pradesh trip I picked up a 12-24 mm f/4 Tokina wide angle lens. The snap clicked above is with this lens in a moving car, through the windshield.
