The magic of Goa

05 May 2013 | no comments » Add a comment


I may not believe in God, but I do believe a higher power paints these landscapes, for it is foolish to think chaos can be so beautiful.

 

I stare in silence, as the magic unfolds in front of me. I don’t want to miss a moment of this. I know there will be people in this world who are oblivious of this, who will never see this. It’s a thought still stuck in my

I was prepared for the worst when we decided to spend some time on a house boat (6 hours) in the backwaters of Kerala. People gave mixed opinion about it and in the end I was totally confused if its good or not but decided to go ahead anyways.

 

My friend’s father took the trouble of finding a decent contact and booked the trip for us when we were in Chengannur. We landed up at the house boat at Alleppey, and saw nice seating arrangements at the

A Simple Path

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

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.

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

I have a Dream

On August 28, 1963, An African American in a black suit, stood on the steps on Lincoln Memorial. In front of him was a crowd of 2,00,000. The next 17 mins were history as he unveiled to the world his “I have a Dream” speech. Below is a text version of his speech which even today sends a chill through the spine to do something against an unjust world.

 

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

 

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous

Ok 2 points here, Lighting and Zoom

 

1. Lighting: The sunset conditions offer nice lighting for clicking snaps and no, not of the sunset. Use the sunset light to click other scenes around and see how they come. Notice the shadows in the sea
