I take Photography as an Art, an inspiration to Life. A photograph captures just a moment in that hundredth of a second, but deep down, there’s an innate story behind what you just see in that final frame. There’s this unearthly connect between you and what you experience. And, it is this connect that best explains the story behind this frame. And a photograph has this Godly power to relive that story. It’s similar to having a dream, and someday you re-live that dream in real – what most people would call a feeling of déjà vu.
Although not a professional photographer, it is my love to hear these clicks of the shutter and capture those moments, that I have started this blog. My love for adventure and experiencing new cultures and traditions has brought me here. To top it all, my travels throughout this beautiful country from a very tender age and a wish to relive all those memories, are what I think are some of the perfect reasons to express myself here. This World is so amazing, and there’s so much to see and experience and enjoy, that it makes me wonder if life’s too short to consume all the different people and cultures.
This is a first hand account of all the stories that I have and will experience, while hopping across one culture to another. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and will do in the future, in writing it.
WHAT I LOOK LIKE
Don’t most people click on the “About” page to see what this fella looks like? Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to have met so many nice people and friends on the internet.
The first thing I tell them is that I look like a monkey. Looking at this pic, they don’t quite agree (Psst..psst …the secret is, I don’t tell them I have evolved, hehe 😀 )
IN FRONT OF THE TOMB
This was taken by a Belgian friend of mine in New Delhi. You see the lady in red? Well, everytime I found a sweet spot for photographing the tomb at my back, this aspiring model would come over and nag us out of there. That well explains why I look like an obedient kid. 😀
