Break the rule



I know, generally it’s not advisable to shoot against direct sunlight unless you have specific tools. But, ...thinking out of the box gives u some incredible results too...!

A coastal paradise



Mile after mile of cool beaches fringed by lush green palm & coconut tress and lapped by the blue water of the Arabian Sea…..By day its sun, sea and surf and by night its fun, fish and feni (the local firewater), I love Goa n will always…!

Unknown


On Sunday morning, I left from my cousin's place, NY to NJ to meet my friends. I took my first metro to reach Pen station. Lazy morning, one hr journey n unfilled train…almost everyone was sleepy. I had nothing to do except watching outside or looking here n there until I saw opposite back side. I don't know who was she…sun was arising from that side and she was in fast sleep when I clicked this shot…Unknown!

Feelings...



Joy, Curiosity, Anger, Fear, Love…Feelings are part of human beings at all ages; from infancy to old age.
This Lil was wholly excited to see Dolphins on the other side of glass…looking for his dear mamma to tell that he has discovered something new, something strange!

"el lagarto"


The alligator is an amazing reptile, having survived almost unchanged since the time of the dinosaurs. Having been hunted almost to the verge of extinction, this reptile has made an amazing comeback in recent years.

Silent afternoon


Located near busy settings of Baltimore inner harbor, Legg mason’s Headquarter has always rush hours. On that day, surprisingly there was no one except Her…, filling up the emptiness of that silent afternoon!

The city that never sleeps

The most populous city in the United States, New York City is the center of international finance, fashion, entertainment and culture, and is widely considered to be a capital of the World.
With one of the most recognizable skyline in the world, it is often called “The city that never sleeps”.

Few months before, got a chance to capture few images of this magnificent city where every frame holds its inimitable mood...and that change at each moment too.

Piercing the sky



A distinctive symbol of New York City, Chrysler Building was the first structure in the world to surpass the 1,000 foot (305 m) threshold and is still the tallest brick building in the world.

I got thrilled to see it when I was roaming on the 42 street and the building got popped out suddenly!

And you're cold inside

How does it feel
How does it feel
When you're alone
And you're cold inside
...MJ
On that cold morning while rambling in the lower Manhattan, I got moved when I saw this helpless soul…half sleepy with a frozen nose, shivering hands n chilly feet in that windy weather!

(In recent years the number of homeless New Yorkers residing in shelters each night has reached the highest point in New York City’s history. Thousands more sleep on city streets, park benches, and subway trains. www.coalitionforthehomeless.org)

Bless O Lord...


For our restful sleep at night,
For the rain and sunshine bright,
For the love that Thou dost send,
For our homes and for each friend,
Heavenly Father, we thank Thee.
Amen.

Fell For Fall

Beautiful morning, pleasing weather and dramatic fall season, no way you can sit at home! You get excited for long drive listening John Denver’s any country track…

Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain momma
Take me home, country roads…
Or
Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high
…West Virginia welcomes you with her spectacular mountains, swirling rivers, and scenic countryside offering a change of pace from the rush of everyday life.
