It’s [Just Another] Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day (to whomsoever it may concern)! Not that I have anything against love, but somehow, almost every year, this day passes like any other day for me. I have been in fairly awkward situations in the past because of missing this day. Once I ended up booking a table in a fancy restaurant with my cousin (we both had missed what day it was) on valentine’s … Continue reading It’s [Just Another] Valentine’s Day

Absolved : Monochrome Image Of Week 08022016

To me, sky symbolizes freedom. Open blue sky even more so. 🙂 First I thought of calling this one  ‘Icarus’ but then I thought, it represents a terrible end and this picture had nothing terrible about it. Except seagull, of course! Seagulls make me nervous. They represent ‘Mindless Arrogance’ (prejudice, I know). This picture rather gave a positive vibe with a flying bird in open … Continue reading Absolved : Monochrome Image Of Week 08022016

Conversations #4 : India Connection

“So Where are we going next?” “We are going back home! Look at you!” “What’s wrong with me? I’m perfectly fine! We are going there next! That pub! Right there! We have to go there!” “Look! Let’s go home now, we take some rest and may be we can go to that pub tomorrow! And what’s so special about that pub anyways!?” “You remember? I … Continue reading Conversations #4 : India Connection

London Dreams : [Monochrome Image of Week 10082015]

This is this the monochrome image of the week and also entry to Monochrome challenge at Leanne Cole Photography. ‘Dreams’ is a very tricky concept with so many meanings and interpretations. Word dream may mean a wish or an ambition or a strong desire of something or merely a vision one sees while asleep. Irony of human nature is that there are dreams we don’t get … Continue reading London Dreams : [Monochrome Image of Week 10082015]

City (Of) Lights : [Monochrome Image of Week 06072015]

This week’s entry to challenge on Leanne Cole PHOTOGRAPHY. I have posted below color version of the image as well. (Could not really decide which one looks better as image? Comments welcome.) I am aware that I have been publishing many pictures of Paris,France for a while. As a photographer you do get stuck at it for a while after you be there. I am going through that … Continue reading City (Of) Lights : [Monochrome Image of Week 06072015]

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

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
