The Strasbourg Saga II: A story of the tall and the grand

Tall and grand and in every way the heart of Strasbourg is the Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg. I soon learnt to navigate my way around the city with glimpses of its Spire for guidance. But before it’s super aid as a navigating device, a bit more about the building itself. The present building was…

Angkor. In wonder

It’s been such a long time since I posted here. Happily it’s also been a time with LOTS of traveling and LOTS & LOTS of photography. Now that things are settled and there is time to review, it’s also time to share. And what better to start with than this rather famous being. A star…

Finding treasure in the archives

The old mask The last few days have been busy going through some 3000 photographs from my two trips to Ladakh. Choosing and selecting the best for an international magazine photo article. Will this photograph, the result of a chance peep-in into a monastery store-room make it to the final eight, I don’t know. 🙂

Late winter is early spring

late winter is early spring , a photo by Anuradha Sarup on Flickr. Two reasons why I love Delhi. The flowering trees that line its roads and the monuments that pop up are regular intervals. Delhi’s past is still very much a daily affair for its residents as they drive to work, the market or…

Nights out in star light

Star trails in Lachtal, Austria On cold clear nights we set up our cameras. Pointing them straight up at the majestic milky way and countless constellations. My first attempt at shooting stars. For me personally an earth defining foreground essential in each frame I shot. The simple task of fixing Tripods was made challenging by…

Finding horizons

(see image better on Flickr) Some twenty years ago when I shifted to big-city Delhi from small-town Jaipur one of the things which disoriented me most was not being able to see the horizon. Even if at times I had an access to a roof or a high-rise balcony, houses and roads stretched on and…

Moody blue Riegersburg

On a clear winter day, the castle at Riegersburg dominates the landscape for miles. Many roads lead to it, each one as delightfully winding and picturesque as the others. We should know. We explored several as we tried to find our way back to the highway 🙂 The Eastern Styria region is known for its…
