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

A portrait! What could be more simple and more complex, more obvious and more profound.
Charles Baudelaire



1. A DSLR Camera (like Canon 550D camera)

2. 50 mm lens (1.8f 50 mm lens), Why this lens? cause this ensures you get a good depth of field. In simple terms this means that some parts of the image will be sharp and some blurred. so eg for a portrait the eyes will be the sharpest, and as you move away the ears will be slightly blurred, and the background will be a lot more blurred. Why is this

And miles to go before I sleep

Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, had, towards his later years, kept a book close to him. It was even there at his bedside table as he lay dying. The book was of Robert Frost, and on on one page featuring the poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”


Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

Tranquillity of Man

Many years ago I had gone to Mumbai along with a friend. We were there for a 2 day visit. On our path of exploration of the city was Haji Ali mosque. The day we decided to head forward was an auspicious Muslim day, I don’t remember the occasion though. As we started at one end of the road which leads to the mosque, we saw a huge container of sharbat (sweet drink made of flower petals). They were being handed out to everyone. Beggars lined up on the right of the narrow road we

The 50mm magic

16 Aug 2011 | 3 comments » Add a comment

If you have bought yourself a canon SLR camera sporting the default 18-55mm lens, and are now wondering which should be the next lens you pick up, I seriously suggest the cheap 50mm f/1.8 lens from canon. The reasons are simple


1. Sharpness
The Canon 50mm f/1.8 is one of the sharpest lens Canon has to offer, some say even sharper than the expensive 24-70mm lens (which is known for sharpness). However I have noticed that at f/2.8 and
