Luxury and Tradition - Hand in Hand

Luxury & Tradition - Hand in hand. This had been the motto of tourism in Kerala. Kerala is a small state on the south-west tip of the Indian Sub-continent, laid with lush greenery, lagoons and backwaters which earned the title of "God's own Country" to this state. And it happens to me my home town too...

This photo is an ancestral kerala house converted into a resort awaiting tourists near the backwaters. Taken by my nephew using a Nikon D50 during August 2006, this is one of my favourite photographs

Copy cat

This is copy cat of a much sought after picture, a candle burning in the dark. On a bored evening, when I wanted to take some new photos & was out of ideas, my cousin suggested me to try this... and bingo!!! What you see above was the result. Pretty neat one, with least effort

The Mysore Palace

The photo of Mysore palace has been taken umpteen number of times by various photographers (professional & others) and this was my turn :) I took this photo during August 2006 when our dear friends Jobin & Susha had come down to meet us and we made a trip to Mysore. Taken during a humid afternoon, the color composition & the clouds in the background made this snap a pretty good one to remember.

The current Mysore Palace – the fourth to occupy this site – was designed by the British architect Henry Irwin after its predecessor was destroyed in a fire in 1897 induced by lightning. The imposing building that stands today was completed in 1912, but it is believed that a Mysore Palace was established as part of a wooden fortress, by the royal family of Mysore, the Wodeyars, as early as the fourteenth century

A boat ride to the backwaters

This photo was taken during November 2006 when my family drove down to Kumarakom during the Deewali vacations. My nephew captured this beautiful photograph and it was a perfect mix of lighting & composure coupled with a perfect scenery.

The Bangalore chill wave

This is a photo of the recent chill wave (Jan 2007) which even prompted early morning flights to be redirected from here. This was taken on a Saturday morning when my daughter woke me up pretty early and we stepped out to see this amazing sight. The lamp on the gate pillars with the background of the fog was an irresistable sight.

The Mattupetti Dam (Munnar)


This photo was taken using a Samsung Fino 800 camera (Autofocus) during one of our vacations to Munnar in August 2003. It was drizzling slightly and this foggy environment caught my attention. The view of the catchment area between the trees was a gorgeous sight; I couldn't help clicking away.

The Snow Blanket


On a January morning in 2006, I woke up in the morning to see this amazing sight! The whole apartment complex was covered with snow. Though it was the sub-zero temparatures around -10 deg celcius in Minneapolis, I felt like stepping out to have a gala time. This was again taken with my Nikon D50 in the autofocus mode.
