The Goan Ferry

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

Centurione I by Igor Mitoraj

22 Feb 2011 | no comments » Add a comment


Igor Mitoraj is a contemporary Polish artist from Germany famous for making classic sculptures with deliberate damage to show wear and tear through ages, or intentional damage done, making them give an antique look, and usually depicts Greek and Roman Gods. As I searched for his work, I found many versions of his Centurione I, one of which I clicked at Bamberg. This depicts Eros the Greek God of love and beauty.

Saint Cunigunde of Luxembourg

The soul of a city, of a country, is not the giant modern buildings that sprawl across the landscape, or the number of modern and exciting bars that have come up, but rather of its endless folk stories, or its history, which gave it culture, customs, and rituals. Thats one of the reasons why I love places of cultural significance. Bamberg has countless stories.

Woman with fruit by Fernando Botero

Every year Villa Concordia (International Artists House), Bamberg (Germany) awards scholarships to few German and foreign artists from the various fields and invites them to work in Bamberg. Work of famous artists are also showcased and at times bought by a citizen initiative like this one called “Woman with Fruit” a brass sculpture by the famous Columbian sculptor Fernando Botero which now stands at “Hay Market”. He is known to make what is termed by his critics as “fat figures”.

My friend runs to the school carpenter dragging a coconut palm branch, and emerges out after 5 Min’s with a new converted cricket bat. “See..” he proclaims, “I told you we will get one”. The beauty of gully/street cricket is that one can

The train journey

A snap I clicked from the local Mumbai trains, the best and the fastest mode of travel in Mumbai and the cheapest too. I have still not figured out the system and still wind up asking people which platform to catch a specific local train, but the locals just know it, “Doh platform par toh dheeri Gadi hai, platform teenh par superfast hai” (platform no 2 has a slow train,

Bridge at Kangra

28 Apr 2010 | no comments » Add a comment


Clicked this at Kangra, while we were crossing the bridge, from a moving car through the windshield. The blurred effect towards the ends give it a small element of motion and the wide angle camera helped capture the full width of the bridge.

 

I wonder what happens when a politician comes to a bridge… does he double cross it?
