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

Hawa Mahal, Palace of Wind in Jaipur

06 Dec 2009 | 4 comments » Add a comment


Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds) is the iconic palace symbolizing Jaipur. Was build by Sawai Pratap Singh. The facade seen here, was used by the royal ladies so that they can have a look outside without being seen thought the numerous small windows (close to 1000 windows). It gets its name because these windows allow enough air to flow though and keep the palace cool.

 

Stood really close to the facade and raised my camera to almost 80 degree to click this.

Although I have already clicked a snap of Mae De Deus Church, I added this one to the post to illustrate how a change in perspective can make the photograph more interesting. Compare it with my post  Mae De Deus Church, Saligao, this one shows the interesting side with pinnacle tips, and a bigger portion of the sky in the background. I think all of us have a habit of always clicking snaps as landscapes, but if you try the same snap as a portrait you may find it more interesting. The background sometimes adds a flavour to your centerpiece, a cheery on the cake.

An alluring sculpture awaits one at Fort in south Mumbai. The sight is almost impossible to avoid, and moments spent admiring its beauty can go endless. The details, fine work of craft does not go unnoticed and one just wonders how it was created. Its named after the Roman goddess as far as I know. Just beautiful!

Mae De Deus Church is an beautiful example of Gothic Architecture, located at Saligaon (Sal meaning wooded, Gaon meaning village, so translates to “village in forest”), some 14 kms away from Panjim, the capital of Goa.

 

I consider it as one of the most beautiful churches I have seen in Goa. Build in 1873, the shrine of the Nossa Senhora Mai de deus was brought over  from the ruins of the convent of Mae de Deus at Old  Goa. Saligaon has one of Goa’s first English language schools, Mater Dei.

Towering Mumbai

This was amoung the first set of snaps I clicked from my first camera. What was before a jungle was being transformed slowly. City-scapes were changing with time.. Bombay was not the same anymore.

I cannot decide what I like more: the soaring building with pimples of AC’s, or the almost fragile branch, showing its last signs of existance. I listen to one of my favorite songs of Pink Floyd everyday to and fro from office called “Wish you were here”. The fist part of the lyrics are below.

“So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?

A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?”

On the way to office I saw this. Luckily I had my camera. It was like God Himself was telling me… go home son, not a good day to work. I was almost tempted.

 Located at Old Goa, its a huge tourist attaction as the mortal remains of St. Francis Xavier are held here. “Bom Jesus” means “Infant Jesus” as far as I know. A public viewing of the body is held every 10 years.
