Eiffel Tower, Paris

Eiffel Tower, Paris

I can not think of the exact moment in the past when I realized I like travelling or clicking photos but it must have been long back when as a kid I used to insist dad to let me take pictures with that red and black Premier PC-500 roll camera we had. In many ways, I have come very far from where I had started. But then I am standing right where I had started from when it comes to excitement I feel in photography and travelling. While growing up, there were photographs of certain places which fascinated me and inspired me to travel. I always wanted to go there and click photographs of those places myself. I wished to experience the elegance and grandeur I saw in photographs (to be honest, most of these places were way out of my reach at that point in time). And I am sure, many of these places would be common for a lot of travelling enthusiasts. I could actually make it to some of these places. I feel lucky that I could check few from the list of places of symbolic importance to me.

Following is the set of such pictures which I wanted to click, I waited for years and finally I did get chance to click!

This has to be 2nd from the top! I clicked some amazing shots of this structure all lit up at night. But choosing day time one now, for this post.

This was right after the blue mosque on the list!

Colosseum, Rome

The structure that defines spirit of Vienna as city and its people. Its colorful rooftop (the original one was destroyed during world war and then rebuilt literally with help of people of Vienna) defines the St. Stephen’s Cathedral.

Undoubtedly one of the most clicked modern structures in the world!

After so many experiments on that chilling January evening, this one turned out to me best of all I clicked, in my opinion!

Louvre, Paris

However it was not on the list anywhere near Eiffel Tower or the Blue Mosque, I wished to click one night time photo of this building. One of the most impressive pieces of neo-classical works in Europe.

The Hungarian Parliament, Budapest

And magnificence in every shade of Grey! (Also, one of my personal Favorites)

Arc de Triomphe, Paris

P.S. : Only now I realized that I do not have even a single good daytime photograph of some of these places. That means I am going to have to visit Budapest, London and Paris one (at the least) more time.
