About

Jack of many trades | Gypsy at heart | Loner in crowd

I like to think that we are lost since birth and what we call life, is actually the search that happens while we exist. Some get it, some don’t. And whatever we are doing and the experiences that we go through, invariably leads to the discovery of lot of questions and their answers, many of which are existential. The journey leads us from unknown to known.

I am lost and I am searching. Hoping to get there some day, sooner or later.

Photography to me is a medium of expression, more so because of the way I approach it. This blog is all about experiences, stories and life in general. It aims to explore these things with the help of photography. This blog is not about only good photographs and nice captures studded with all the technicality and photography skills. Sometimes the narrative and story will take the lead ahead of photographs.

Needless to say that, all the images here are clicked by me and hence owned by me, unless otherwise specifically mentioned.

Feedback, reviews and comments are most welcome.

      I am humbled with this nomination Anil. Its great to know when fellow blogger appreciates your work. However, I would not be in position to fulfill all the conditions required here to accept the nomination. I am still novice on wordpress and specially photoblogging.

      I am still learning, improving and trying to make my blog worthy of such nominations.

      Thank you once again for appreciating my work🙂

        No matter for non-acceptance of the nomination. I too recently have declined one nomination and this the second one, which I accepted. So don’t get disturbed by declining the nomination. Its absolutely fine.

            Your photographs and the blog as a whole is very nice. Only thing you have to spread it in the community. For that you ave to visit others’ blogs and like/ follow them. One you will find you are in a community of bloggers from all parts of the world. You have got enough time, get it slowly. Appreciation will follow.
            Keep it up.
            Thank you

                  Ok. That sounds interesting. In a way you must be knowing more about Kutch than me.
                  Is there any series or gallary which you have posted about Kutch in your blog? I would love to see.

        That’s the thing here. you grow along with others. We bloggers are like parasites, we feed on each others support. You have mine and of many others. You’ll be on your way to the top soon!🙂
        So go ahead Hitesh.

      You know what ?

      It always good to go back and read a persons “about me” section again after a while. First time when you read, you make some expectations and assume certain things and after a while when you have followed them, read their thoughts, exchange ideas etc you will realize how true what you have read is !!

          Yeah right. Same here.
          And I also to the some extent have same views on awards which people keep giving here.

            Don’t fret about those, it is “you scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours” type of commitment – I don’t do things like that… I only appreciate sincere and unconditional sentiments from people – I am not into buying/selling or any kind of trade…. We are better than that, the world is contaminated with people that do not know better, but one must not allow to be dragged down to their level. (maybe I went overboard with this- but I always speak up my mind)

              Completely agree with you. Thats the point.
              I have refused almost all of these awards whenever I have been offered. Silently it does mean that they are trying to buy appreciation which should not be the case. The art which you create should speak for itself.

              I am OK with promotion but sometimes people go overboard while promoting their work.

    Blogs have many purposes and concepts… I am ok with that if it says openly what it is about.. I hate sneaking in, and false pretence in any form. My concept of blog is that it is my virtual place-home if you will, and not a place where I would sell something.. as for “promotion” – we should look at the definition of the word …😉 I am all for it as in the sense of advancement, and furthering in one’s goals😉😀

      Yes well said.
      I have been blogging for almost 6 or 7 years now but that was more of a personal experience for me.

      With this photoblog I started serious blogging with purpose. Purpose of meeting and getting to know new people with this art form, conveying emotions, discovering myself and discover the world.
