WPC: Partners

Here’s my possibly silly submission for Partners, but I’m gonna run with it anyway.

I know I haven’t been photographing much lately and seriously need to get my mojo back; truth is I haven’t been venturing out that much. But I got this out of my weekend’s ride to Lake Hussain Sagar at least.

You can’t tell from my B/W processing, but the two trash cans are colored green and blue respectively. One for biowaste and the other for everything else. Though you can pretty much guess that nobody cares a damn about the segregation. Some people would even scoff at the stupidity of having two trash cans next to each other!


(No brownie points for noticing the Indian flag, second tallest in the country!) 

7-Day Nature Challenge – Day 3

The sea, of course, is a constant presence in my photos.

Even here, when the focus undividedly goes to the flower, the sea is still there in the background, adding another layer of intrigue.

I was also quite surprised by the kind of bokeh my phone achieved.

Location: North Cliff, Varkala, Kerala




7-Day Nature Challenge – Day 1

Nature photographs, I have ’em a plenty 🙂 But how good are they, I leave it up to ya’ll. Since I noticed a handful of bloggers I follow doing this right now, I thought of joining in the fun too.

So anyway, let’s talk about the below photograph.

This was taken at one of the beaches in Visakhapatnam, at about six in the morning. You guessed it, I wanted to catch the sunrise! It took me a while to get a satisfactory shot. The lighting proved to be a problem, but in the end I think it turned out just fine.



WPC: Transition



It’s that time of the day when the mighty Sun is receding to the other side of the world, and you’re left with this warm diffuse of its last rays on the horizon.

Probably also the time of day the TV sets come to life to gear up for some prime time television!

An evening transitioning into night, this is my contribution for this week’s photo challenge.

At The Marina

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Half and Half.” Yesterday I had a sudden desire to visit the sea. After all, I think it’s been one whole month since the last time I’ve been to one. And that’s too long in my books! So I packed and shot to the one beach […]

Fully Mooned

Today I learnt that the word ‘moon’ is also a verb which means: behave or move in a listless or aimless manner! 

And I guess in a way it applies to me too. Hopefully, I’ll be able to unmoon myself soon! (and no, that’s not a real word :P)

Anyway, it’s a full moon day here and I thought why not try and capture it. As you can see, this one certainly makes apparent the limitations of smartphone cameras. The long exposure (4 secs) gave me enough light on the background but the moon itself turned out overexposed, something that wouldn’t have happened I think with a DSLR camera.
