Here comes one of my personal favorite photos of one of the grandest structures on the planet. Irrespective of the fact that we have grown up seeing it in popular culture whole of our lives, when you see it for the first time, it somehow manages to leave you in absolute awe. It’s humongous, it’s grand. Although, as people say, it’s just a huge piece of … Continue reading Monochrome Image of the Week
A random street in Istanbul. Thanks to stupid plots of Hollywood movies set in this city with Sultan Ahmed Mosque in backdrop, Istanbul has this image of a city of mysteries (and Assassin’s Creed Revelations too :P). But when you walk down the streets, you know that it is a normal city like any other city. It has friendly people and good food to offer with … Continue reading MM2-4: Monochrome Entry For This Week [Istanbul]
Apart from places or historic structures which were on ‘To Click’ list, there are some iconic things which were on this list for a long time. Although there are very few checks on this part of the list, I would like to share whatever I have been able to cover so far. So, few more things and structures that define the cities where they belong! One … Continue reading The ‘To Click’ List : Part 2
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 … Continue reading The ‘To Click’ List : Part 1
Vienna, Austria (July 2014). Walking through the city near Vienna State Opera building I saw this giant pink bunny. I took few pictures and walked on (I am allergic to pink color 😛 ). I really did not bother then what that bunny was all about and why it was there. After coming back home, just out of curiosity, I researched a little and found out … Continue reading Vienna and the (Pink) Young Hare
Bratislava, Slovakia, 2014. We had just started walking around in the old town area. The old town area is the main tourist district and is beautifully maintained, attractively decorated and sensibly restored. Tourists are welcome here and most of tourists never see the city beyond the boundaries of this district and thus, don’t really get to meet (or face in certain cases) the local residents. I … Continue reading Small World : A Funny Oxymoron!
This is probably the most recognized site/’Landmark’/’Monument’ in Bratislava old town. There is no historic significance but the guy is named Cumil, he is there in old town Bratislava since 1997 and everybody likes him. Best part I like about him is that he looks genuinely happy (especially when you are in a town like Bratislava, it matters 🙂 ). They say he represents the communist … Continue reading Cumil, The Happy Guy
