Solitary at sea

There’s something about the water – that solitary kind of peaceful feeling. You’re on Earth but not quite.
John C. Reilly

 

My perfect holiday is always at the beach.. I try to avoid a place which is packed with people and rather choose a more secluded spot. There is nothing more

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.

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.

 

This image is of Saint Cunigunde of Luxembourg (also known as Empress Kunigunde) who was married to the Saint Henry (Heinrich II) the Holy Roman Emperor. Legend has it that she

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”.

Its called Little Venice because of the beautiful row of houses from the 19th century along one side of the river Regnitz. Quite a few old and historically important buildings around this area, and is definitely a photographers paradise.

Bridge at Kangra

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?

Kangra

10 Mar 2010 | no comments » Add a comment


On the way to Dharamshala we came across the picturesque town of Kangra. At one point this place was captured and ruled by Nepal, but were driven away later by Ranjh, and remained as a princely state under British India, and finally merged with Himachal Pradesh post independence.

 

For my Feb 2010 Himachal Pradesh trip I picked up a 12-24 mm f/4 Tokina wide angle lens. The snap clicked above is with this lens in a moving car, through the windshield.
