I'm a water person. I spend hours taking pictures of water - whether it be a small water fountain or of waves crashing over the rocks or even tiny raindrops on the window. I even learnt swimming just so I could sit and play in the pool for hours on end. This picture below is … Continue reading Pool Shenanigans
Back in 2010, my parents and I went on our first international holiday - to Thailand. Because it was the first such trip to foreign shores, and also filled with many firsts, it was indeed a very exciting and fun holiday for us. Filling out immigration forms, going wide-eyed at the duty-free stores, having our eyes … Continue reading Fish Therapy!
Life is a narrow road, isn't it? It is full of difficult choices, steep falls, sharp twists and yet we manoeuvre through them all - sometimes through sheer grit and determination; sometimes through the support of family and friends. Being too philosophical, aren't I? Can't help it. Reading 'To Cancer, With Love' by Neelam Kumar is doing … Continue reading The Narrow Path of Life
This past weekend Wandering Soul and Ms. Sassy (of Sass and Sauce) spent a fun-filled day in Agra. It was her first visit to the 'City of Taj' and one after ten years for me. As if this wasn't enough to make the trip special, what happened on the trip itself catapulted us over the moon. … Continue reading Cherry on The Chocolate Cake
This is in response to the Photo Prompt 'Through The Window'. Was supposed to post this last week, but somehow missed it completely. Nevertheless, sharing it now. Why I think this photograph fits the prompt best is because it obviously has been taken through the car window, but that it also gives a view of … Continue reading Through The Window
This may seem to be a very simple picture of some random flowers at first glance. But for some reason, I see a lot more than just that. To me, this picture depicts the full glory and marvels of nature within it. The vibrant yellow petals symbolise the Sun while the white petals look like they represent the Moon … Continue reading Gifts from Mother Earth
I've been super busy these past few days. So much so that even my father was surprised that despite being jobless, I was juggling so many things at the same time. It led him to tease me by saying, "You have too much on your plate. Make sure you don't get an upset stomach!" It … Continue reading Enjoying the Ride called ‘Life’
On my recent visit to Mughal Gardens, Rashtrapati Bhawan (President's Palace) at Delhi, I had clicked pictures of the gardens with my mobile camera. (I was aware well in advance that a traditional camera is not allowed, due to high security measures.) These exquisitely beautiful gardens are opened to the public in March, and only for a … Continue reading March Bloom
And my heart is where these two are - Mommy and Daddy. Needless to say, I am a bit of both - Mama's Pet and Daddy's Little Girl. And together they make my world!
Without the colours of love (of family and friends), hope (and dreams of a better future) and freedom (to follow your passions), the season of life would be as dull and drab as this. Taken in Black & White. Reproduction of image prohibited without permission of author.
“Time is an illusion.” ― Albert Einstein This picture was taken last year, during a family trip to Kerala, and this was when I had also newly discovered the Freeze Motion Technique. I particularly like this picture because it gives the impression of a blur caused due to a camera shake, when in fact the … Continue reading Whizzing Past
This picture was taken during a Dolphin show at a Wildlife Safari Park in Bangkok, Thailand. This is one of my favourite pictures of my most memorable trip (being the first international trip for us), along with another one where I pose with the Dolphin. But, that's another story 🙂
This photograph was taken on a recent trip to Chandigarh. My mom and I, after a hectic day of sight-seeing and shopping, sat down at an oriental restaurant, for an early dinner. We had stared at the small, rectangular try when the server had placed it in front of us. The variety of sauces and … Continue reading Sauce Bowls
They say a picture speaks a thousand words. I think sometimes, it may go well beyond that, especially if the picture triggers off an avalanche of beautiful memories and takes you off on a trip down memory lane. This is the beautiful Pykara Lake in Ooty, a quaint hill station in India; which is where … Continue reading Pretty Picture of the Week
Another one of my clicks during my visit to Chandigarh, earlier this month. Something about this flower attracted and fascinated me - the imperfections, the dual colours, its full bloom while others around it are either only half-way there or still are unopened buds, offering untold promises of beauty contained within. This sight reminds me of … Continue reading Pretty Picture of the Week
Last week I had traveled to Chandigarh for my college reunion bash. Having spent 3 years of my life there, this trip was special in ways more than just one. It was the 25th year of my Alma Mater and hence, elaborate preparations had been done for the Silver Jubilee Celebrations. Also, I was visiting … Continue reading Pretty Picture of the Week
This particular picture happens to be one of my favourites, for a variety of reasons. One, because I love the effect of capturing an image of a water splash with distinctly visible droplets, hanging in mid-air and second, because it takes many attempts at my end to get results like this. I hope you will … Continue reading Pretty Picture of the Week
This time I am combining my Weekly Photo feature with the Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily Post. This week's theme is Eye Spy, which I choose to interpret a bit differently. So, here is a photograph where one of the tigers is sleeping and hence, its eyes are closed and the one who is looking at us, … Continue reading Pretty Picture of the Week
As promised in my What’s Up and Coming page, here is my weekly photo feature. This would be updated every weekend and would feature a photograph taken by me, as I would like to use this page to showcase my photography. Look forward to all the feedback - bouquets or brickbats! This week's picture is given below. … Continue reading Pretty Picture of the Week
