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!
Agra is a city of many architectural marvels. Every visit makes you fall in love with it even more. During my recent visit to the city - one after ten years, I realized how much I had missed it. It has its own charm and despite being close to the National Capital of Delhi and … Continue reading 7 Things You Must Experience in Agra
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
Read Part 1 and Part 2 We had plans to visit the beautiful Tsomgo Lake and Nathula Pass, Indo-China border on Day 2, which was scrapped due to incessant rains in Gangtok and fresh snowfall in the higher region. No amount of wailing and bawling made Nature change its mind. Our driver then suggested a trip … Continue reading Stories of Sikkim Part III
Sikkim is a beautiful state located in the north-eastern corner of India and its location in the mountains offers ample natural and also man-made attractions. From scenic views of the majestic Himalayas to architectural wonders, it has surprises in store at every turn (Pun not intended 😀 ) On my recent trip, my parents and … Continue reading Stories of Sikkim Part II
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine They say travel teaches you more than anything else can. I have known this to be true and personally enjoy travelling. The experiences that it offers and the learnings it imparts are unmatched and cannot be compensated … Continue reading Stories of Sikkim
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.
Sometime in October last year, while roaming around in an amusement park in Pune, I found my long lost twin. 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
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

This week's picture is given below. … Continue reading Pretty Picture of the Week
