Look at sunset and find me


Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. ~ Rabindranath Tagore

Light is the essence of photography

Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography. George Eastman

Our daily walks in our surroundings has inspired us see the same things differently. We no longer get bored of the same road, the same trees and the same houses. Everyday the light and the weather is different and we get to see each frame from different angles.

I am not interested in shooting new things – I am interested to see things new. Ernst Haas

Still life photography

The subject matter is so much more important than the photographer.~Gordon Parks

Being an amateur photographer I don’t own a studio. I rely on available light from surroundings. Interestingly both winter and spring provide fantastic backdrops for such shots.

Next couple of images are taken in Italy during our recent visit. Lessons learned:

  • Take care of your belongings while travelling. Taking photos are fun but one must be careful with loose items. Our desire to cover as much as possible at times force us to ignore our belongings. The subject in the this photograph belonged to someone from a group of tourists who were at the same spot just a couple of minutes before us. Being short on time the ladies rushed towards the bus. I didn’t check what was inside but used this case as a subject.
  • Instead of visiting only the marked tourist attractions walking in alleys in various parts of a city provide interesting window displays.
  • look up look down look all around. Balconies give idea of local choices and even showcase the cultural and traditional trends.

Photography is the only language that can be understood anywhere in the world. ~ Bruno Barbey

Here’s a window to my environment

Enjoyed the warmth of this spring

It’s been over a week since we are back from Italy. To our surprise we came back to sunny and warm days. A short vacation was enough to amplify our workload. Anyways we managed both, our duties and personal time.We spent evenings in enjoying sunsets from different places and during weekends we got busy in hiking, chasing spring as we believe “no two springs or sunsets are the same

What’s the use of a fine house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on.~Henry David Thoreau

To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival. Wendell Berry

Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm.~ John Muir

I am glad as from yesterday we are back to our default weather routine. It’s mostly wet, cold and grey and yet it’s spring. Even the public road administration has asked people to wait an extra week before changing their winter tyres if they haven’t done it already 😁😲

Have a great week!

Capturing fun moments with mediocre routines

No two walks are the same

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each momentHenry David Thoreau

Spring is around the corner

Life is full of new experiences with a tag “conditions applied”. Some sees it some don’t. Here is my try to find some moments which may not excite the locals but to me yes and probably to some of you?
