In Nandgaon. Holi

Advertisements The Wet, Herbal Color of The Tesu Flower I hope all of you enjoyed the images of Holi in Barsana. And now, we must move on to Nandgaon, which is where I went the next day.

Kankhal. Shiva’s Townlet

Advertisements The Shiva Temple in the Townlet And so, the time has come to talk about the last place we visited. After Rishikesh, Kunjapuri, Neelkanth, and Haridwar, we went to Kankhal.

Kunjapuri. Blue & Gold

Advertisements The Golden Hour People make a lot of the blue and golden hour in the world of nature and landscape photography and, with good reason.

In Rishikesh. 1

By The Ganges

Advertisements It’s Good to Reminisce Over the next weeks, I am going to reminisce, like an old fuddy-duddy chap, about a trip I made to Haridwar and Rishikesh in March-April 2014. Damn, my hair was blacker in those days! But some people tell me that the ‘salt & pepper’ hair I sport nowadays is sexy.Continue reading “By The Ganges”

The Painted Man

Advertisements Street Photography, Scenes. Mental Health Issues A week ago, I wrote a post on “The Painted Men”, and in that post, I wrote about inequality and how it is rising in the world. But street photography gives you opportunities to take images you can interpret and re-interpret over the years. I shot this PaintedContinue reading “The Painted Man”

A Beautiful Girl in Rome

Advertisements A Moment in Time I’d like to end this series of posts about my holiday in Rome with two images of an exquisite girl. Judging by her dress and the bottle in her hand; she was a tourist. I am not a lecher, but when I visited the Colosseum, I turned and saw her.Continue reading “A Beautiful Girl in Rome”
