Spring or something like that

Over the past few days, I have been trying to better settle my hand at the camera. I am revising and revisiting the photography lessons I took half-a-decade ago. I am reading blogs, pre-ordering photography books and hoping that the renewed interest and effort in being a better photographer will show results soon. Of the recent photographs that I have taken, I loved this one of the hibiscus that bloomed in my small balcony garden and there is also a promise of one more flower in the bokeh'd background. This is the only sign of Spring that I experienced in Delhi this year that I have. And I am happy to share it with you :)

Owl on my balcony!


My obsession with owls and photography continues. Here is a picture of one of my favourite diffusers at home. I tried my hand at a little bokeh effect.

Sultan Garhi

On one of the last winter mornings, kissed by clouds that brought rain just minutes later, a group of us went to Sultan Garhi to go shutter crazy. I went on one of these walks after a gap of almost 2 years. The time spent in the dead man's tomb was worth all the effort of having an early Friday night and waking up early on a Saturday.

Here are the captures from this morning.

Nizamuddin Auliya

Delhi means a lot of things to me. It means life and love and home. The city has jewels hidden in all its crevices and corners. The one jewel that is very close to my heart is the Dargah of Nizamuddin Auliya. I don't claim to know any of the customs that are followed here or even the way to the main area of worship. But I still like to cover my head once in a while and go to the Dargah to listen to the Qawals. Here are some snapshots from my last visit.


Ladies are not allowed!
Religion has nothing to do with faith

Invoking the gods with soulful music

Faith at different levels

Lighting God's House

Calling on the gods

Eat, pray, love

Lodi Garden: An Urban Oasis--Walking the Familiar Path

On 5 April 2014, I along with two of my friends joined the heritage walk organized by the Hungarian Information and Cultural Centre. The walk was curated by Robinson.

It was nice to see the city through the eyes of someone who knows the history, the roads and trees of Delhi so well.

This cool Ambassador car at the centre caught my eye and captured my heart.

Delhi was splendid in all its colours.

The sun was a jewel sparkling from behind the trees.

In so many years, this is the first time that I found out that the name of the Lodi Gardens is The Lady Wellingdon Park.

This is my favourite photo from the day
Robinson showed us the green house at the Lodi Gardens. It was a beautiful location with bougainvillea decorating the roof.

Robinson pointed out that the dustbins in the park had been painted by volunteers recently. It was fun spotting different paintings on the dustbins.
