The perfect work desk

I don’t mind working in a cubical, just give me a sea view…

 

A few days back on a lazy Sunday I saw this desk on a small cliff at Anjuna, and I wonder if I should shift my work desk here. As I sat on the chair, and kept my feet on the desk, I remembered the words “No man-made object of beauty can be compared to the simplest elements of Nature, for Nature is the true artist”. Needless to say the rest of the evening was

A Simple Path

25 Feb 2013 | no comments » Add a comment


My calm peaceful book reading at Palolem is interrupted by laughter. I look up to see fishermen joke amoung themselves. They seem idle, as some smoked a bidi, while another waved his hands in the air describing some weird scene, while others looked at him with crooked smile.

 

The simplicity of the whole setup, and the idleness (for some) of the fishermen as they lazed

Smiling reflections

I saw her sitting and smiling by herself
I asked what future her smile is cast
“Not future” she said, “but the past, the past..”

 

We rarely look at the future and smile at moments we are going to live, but always reflect back at the past and smile. This snap is perfect for this thought. Thanks Priya for posing so well!

 

The past has so many glorious moments.

 

I remember the time when with very little money

As the sun goes down on Cola beach

“There is nothing more appetizing, caressing and musical than the sunset… and yeah its eye-catching too.”

 

“Cola beach?” said someone, “do you know how to get there”, as I sat sipping my coffee at the Chattai Shack at Agonda. I whip up my phone to search, waiting for the result, however the lady has moved on to the manager, who explains the path, including the fact that there is a good restaurant there which

Life: some spices and a pint of beer

Life is not complex, it just needs flavour, some salt and pepper, and yeah a pint of beer always helps.

 

Its just another lazy Sunday at Anjuna, at a small sleepy shack, which I have over the years liked spending time at. The waiters are lazy, but I am

The caterpillar crisis

26 Nov 2012 | 6 comments » Add a comment


As humans evolved, so did crisis. There are many of them and occur at different stages, and I guess some are normal, some not so….

 

- Identity crisis: Who am I? What am I doing?

- Personality crisis: I feel like a man in a woman’s

Capturing Scary faces

Capturing scary images is a breeze. These images were clicked a long time back, and while cleaning my catalog, I came across them.

Here is how they were clicked

 

1. Environment: Night, pitch black environment.

 

2. Lighting: A non flooding source of light like a small torch (the ones that come on a cigarette

Lady in Red – Low light photography

15 Oct 2012 | 6 comments » Add a comment


Low light photography is always a bit difficult, especially when you want to avoid a strong light source like flash. This snap above took many trials, I think we took more than 60 snaps before we finally selected the one above. It also took months

When anyone comes to Goa, the first thing on their mind is Calangute beach. Calangute, once a small fishing village, was popularised by the hippies, and through word of mouth became the hot-spot for them
