This photo reminds me this wonderful song by Irish musician Mickey MacConnell – ‘The world was ours, I was yours, And I thought you were mine……’ Or may be this photo has nothing to do with it! 🙂 Continue reading Birds
AtoZ – there is a whole world of words in-between! Ever thought what is the longest word you can type using a single row of a QWERTY keyboard? TYPEWRITER Irony, isn’t it?! 🙂 Continue reading Irony
Speaking of dreams, art and dreams have always been interlinked, be it ancient paintings on some cave walls or be it more contemporary forms of arts. Photography, however, is odd one out when it comes to an artist’s ability to link his dreams to his work (presuming here that photography is an art as much as any other form of art). A singer can sing to express … Continue reading Dreams, Clicked.
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]
“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]
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!
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
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]
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
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
