This little girl – daughter of Balloon vendor on Carter road, Bandra radiates with beautiful smile against all odds. Everytime I look at this picture I am reminded of wonderful song by Eagles for I don’t know why !!
I was standing all alone against the world outside. You were searching for a place to hide. Lost and lonely, now you’ve given me the will to survive. When we’re hungry, Love will keep us alive.
And the quest continues as you seek !! You seek love, meaning, serendipity, knowledge, happiness. And as they say, no matter what you get, what you achieve, there is always something left to be done. And that’s life.
“You broke the bonds and you
Loosed the chains
Carried the cross
Of my shame
Of my shame
You know I believed it”

I have been away from camera for quite some time now which induced this hiatus and I don’t know for how long this will continue. Nevertheless, its always great to drop in here once in a while, look at all those wonderful photo and travel blogs and go back inspired. Stories behind pictures and journey is what draws us to people and places and I am not an exception.
At every stage of our life we find ourself close to certain thoughts and here is one such thought which is changing me with every passing day. For good I hope !!
To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common–this is my symphony.
– William Henry Channing
Just in case you missed on the first time, look at the picture again and you will see two people walking down the road.
This picture always reminds me about how we should always keep on going even after reaching some milestone or achieving something. That’s the way life is. Keep walking. Keep searching.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.But I have promises to keep,And miles to go before I sleep,– Robert Frost
The other day at the photowalk, I was trying my hand at Panning technique after a brief explanation from my friend. I was trying this with no expectations whatsoever as it was the first time. To be honest this can be vary painful and will test your patience level as you will end up taking 50 photographs but not a single worth looking. Considering that I fact, I thought I was lucky in the end with couple of shots which is worth looking at.
The best place to try this is on a street where you have a moving traffic which will give you enough of subjects to shoot.
Panning is a technique in photography that is used to capture a moving object in action.The subject of the photo is clearly caught on camera; however, the rest remains a blur in the background. Panning suggests speed and velocity to an image.
