One Saturday morning (few months back) Anuja and I decided to go to Bodega Café, located at the Sunaparanta Centre for the Arts at Altinho. I had been to this place a few times and love the huge old Portuguese house, the gallery which showcases some excellent work of art, and courtyard, the ambiance, and the daily changing menu. A very good place to sit and relax reading a book, or chat with few friends. Read More
“Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, clearly never owned a bike”
The beast of a machine stood there, looking all mean, showing off its biceps as sunlight reflected its chrome black and steel body. The roar of engine made one proud. As Tanya sat on the bike, the lady and machine become one. The combination lethal. Tanya a commercial pilot is used to mean machines! Read More
Facial expressions and body language are giveaway, I might lie by my words, but my expressions might not.
Clicking snaps of people is interactive and fun. Asking them to be natural in front of the camera is tough at time, and the best way to loosen up is to try an expressions series.

Sometimes a small insignificant event leads to something big. We might ignore, not notice, or care less about these small events, but they have been the catalyst.

Sometimes the unplanned photographs are the ones that are captured the best.

By its very nature the beautiful is isolated from everything else.
The horse ride at Khajjiar took us to a small farm high up in the mountains. Piles of haystack at one end and garlic fields at the other with small house in the corner. The view spectacular, and amidst all this a small girl appears and stood with a shy smile.
