The Bridge : [Monochrome Image of Week 03082015]

There is one thing¬†I have always noticed that¬†these famous structures, which we¬†have seen in pictures and media for long time, turn out to¬†be smaller or bigger than you would have anticipated! Just like I mentioned this earlier for Eiffel Tower, this, the tower bridge¬†was¬†surprisingly bigger, taller, larger than the image I had in my head. It was, it is, a treat for eyes. Viewing it … Continue reading The Bridge : [Monochrome Image of Week 03082015]

Busk [Monochrome Image of Week 08062015]

“He plays. But then don’t we all? Someday, somewhere, something, someone!” This week’s monochrome image and also entry to MM challenge at Leanne Cole Photography. I believe busking is a difficult job. Apart from exceptional talent, it also takes a lot of patience and tolerance. Imagine how good a movie or some show would need to be in order to take chance of letting people … Continue reading Busk [Monochrome Image of Week 08062015]

Jai Ho!

I met a guy at Listowel Writers’ Week who had traveled across India for over a year. He had been to Goa, Varanasi, Bodh gaya, Puskar etc (of course :D). And only Hindi words he learnt were “Shanti” (English¬†translation : Peace) and “Sab kuchh milega!” (Rough English translation : You will get everything here). I can only imagine why he might have liked India so … Continue reading Jai Ho!

Milestones and A Long Way To Go

I was in Listowel, Republic of Ireland last weekend to attend a book launch as part of Listowel Writers’ week 2015. I had contributed one picture in an amazingly informative picture book named “COUNTY KERRY 101 INTERESTING FACTS” (ISBN 978-0-9932712-0-5). This happens to be my first picture used in a published book. Not that this is the biggest thing one can achieve nor it was … Continue reading Milestones and A Long Way To Go

Lone [Monochrome Image of Week 01062015]

Some images are strong. Without any direct reference, they can express strong emotions. And sometimes, surprisingly, simplest of the images and that too in monochrome, turn out to be the most¬†expressive. This photo¬†here is one of my personal favorites. I find this image very sad. Did the boat reach that far from the shore¬†on its own? Did someone take it there? What is it doing … Continue reading Lone [Monochrome Image of Week 01062015]

The ‘L’ League

When it comes to birthday gifts, I never¬†disappoint myself. This time it was a¬†Canon 24-70mm F/4 L IS USM lens. I had been planning to get one for a while and this looked¬†like a perfect excuse. This photo¬†is one of my¬†early¬†experiments with the lens and so far, it has met every single¬†expectation I had from it. Even without going into technicalities of the image, its … Continue reading The ‘L’ League

Concluded – The Iron Lady Portfolio

I have been posting a series pictures of Eiffel Tower I had taken on my last trip to Paris (also my first). As I always say, there are infinite possible combinations of weather, sky color, mood, time, lighting and places from where photo is being taken. Every photo of Eiffel Tower taken at any juncture is unique in itself. These are the last two of … Continue reading Concluded – The Iron Lady Portfolio
