Umesh the fisherman who took us around to monkey and butterfly islands near Colomb/Palolem beach. The reason for his good old jolly nature is given away with a sniff .. of alcohol. His slightly staggered

Sunset at Colomb beach

“Once I saw a chimpanzee gaze at a particularly beautiful sunset for a full 15 minutes, watching the changing colors (and then) retire to the forest without picking a pawpaw for supper.”

Adriaan Kortlandt

 

Sunset images like these are very easy to capture and give stunning results. 1/3 rule works well for this, and I prefer not placing the sun right in the middle. The palm trees and boat silhouette ofcourse add to the value of the snap. Clicked during my short vacation at Colomb beach, near Palolem, Goa.

A perfect getaway

“Peacefulness is an inner sense of calm – it comes from becoming still – in order to reflect and meditate on our inner wisdom and receive answers. A peaceful heart is one that is free from worry and trouble. It’s becoming quiet so we can look at things quietly so we can more clearly understand them and thus come up with creative solutions. It is learning to live in the present.”

 

Every once in a while it’s good to break the cyclic

Holy cross chapel

As one drives through the roads of Goa, you are bound to come across a chapel, church, temple etc. This one however in Saligaon seemed more beautiful with the arrangement of fields, the palm trees, the cloudy sky and the neatly placed chapel.

 

I just hope this view, these fields never go and get replaced by the concrete jungles.

Don’t deliver us from Evil

Good vs. Evil, Light vs. Dark etc have had a long battle since the beginning of the intellectual era of mankind. Evil/Dark is always frowned upon. It has been revolted against so much that any talk, discussion on it is seen as blasphemy.

 

Evil/Dark however is important.

 

Take for instance the earliest concepts the war

“See we can do horse riding”.. the girls screamed. I try to ignore them as I step out of our taxi at Khajjiar.. Fat men and horses don’t go too well was what was going on in my mind. As the girls went racing to negotiate with the horsemen, Tony and I were happy walking towards the green meadows. With every breath the fresh air seems to calm one.. it

Make a wave

As long as you don’t make waves, ripples, life seems easy. But that’s condemning yourself to impotence and death before you are dead.

One of the finer things about life is to take a moment out to enjoy it, and although Goa has its set of beaches, disco techs etc, the simpler things can add to your good moments, like.. a humble ferry ride.

 

Goa has been using ferries to transport people and
