One Can Tango Too Tango Baby! On my way home from grocery shopping today I was passing by this place where lots of pigeons hangout, and seeing them I thought I’d take a few photos so grabbed the camera as soon as I was home and headed out rightaway. One there, I started shooting a few ‘portraits’, but almost immediately lots of them gathered ...

The Four Seasons This was a photo almost a year in the making; when I took the first of the four photos back in August, it occurred to me that I could in fact not take one, but four, depicting each of the four seasons. The fall went without a problem and a cool looking picture in the bag. Winter was what was ...

Groovin’ Chilling Me Softly Yesterday was fun. Like, TOTALLY! It was one of the best photowalks I’ve ever been to here in Japan, and with good reason. To begin with, I prepared a tad too much and so messed it up completely, just like me; in the morning I plugged in the battery to charge it despite it having more than ...

Dreamland The Perfect Spring Day Believe it or not, this is more or less right in front of my apartment; yes I’m that lucky. This small stream and the road alongside it runs for more than a kilometer long and there are Sakura trees (cherry blossoms ) just like this the whole length. Unfortunately because of work I couldn’t take a ...

Dream On Dreamy Night Few months ago I took out a friend to dinner for her birthday. All that’s fine, but there’s got to be something in it for me as well, right? So, two birds with one stone and all, I picked Yokohama, close to the Minatomirai station which is without fail an excellent place for photography. After a wonderful dinner ...

Lanterns Peaceful If you live in a place where you’re not blessed with year long summers, like in Sri Lanka, then spring is probably your favorite time of the year. It certainly is for me. After practically hibernating inside for the entirety of winter it’s such a great feeling to be out again in mild weather. The other day I was ...

Lethal Attraction Spellbinding While in the USA, being stuck in DC an extra day because I missed my flight, I used up that time to visit an aquarium in Baltimore. These lethal beauties, more than anything else, were so mesmerizing and attractive. The gentle ease with which they glide through the water is so serene and spellbinding it’s almost impossible to believe ...

Grandeur The Mighty Grand Canyon This probably is the best photo from my recent visit to the US. I probably have mentioned this before, but let me say it again; The Grand Canyon was always at the top of my bucket list and the opportunity to cross it off the list was something truly wonderful. I had known about it ever ...

Lincoln Memorial Peaceful During my recent trip to the USA I was in Washington DC with a bunch of my friends. The daytime was spent catching up with the old buddies and going to a few museums around, and in any case I wanted to wait till the night fall to get a snap of few landmarks around. Which led to my ...

Christmas Lights Twinkling The year end vacation was a pretty great one whichever way you look at it.

The Truly Grand Canyon Behold the grandeur of mighty Canyon! Ever since I was a kid I was always fascinated how amazingly and beautiful our planet is. And the more I learned about these places – both human made and natural – the more I wanted to see them. But like many other children’s fantasies, I never really thought I’d actually get to see ...

Conversation with Oneself Three Loonies The end of the year vacation in the United States was pretty great. The best part of it was… catching Looney having a conversation with herself. Scratch that, with two other her-selves. If that make any sense.Filed under: Indoor, People, USA Tagged: Las Vegas, Looney, MGM Grand, Photoshop, USA
