Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost in the Details

This week’s Photo Challenge theme is all about getting Lost in the Details.

Once you’ve found a subject you want to photograph, challenge yourself to work a little further into the scene. Here, I use a landscape as an example, but this approach can be applied to other types of photography.

Funny thing is, I’d done something similar – just for kicks of course – when I went to Jebel Sifah a couple of months back. A walk on the beach with my cousin Jhinx turned into a fun photo session!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

This week’s Photo Challenge:

In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says FORWARD to you.

Perhaps it’s a path you yourself have taken, the building where you’re starting a great new job, or the curve of your partner’s pregnant belly. It could be an image that shows a physical move, or something that evokes a major life change.

Every once in a while, you read a book that completely changes your world view. For me, The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau did exactly that. I picked it up during my recent trip to Amsterdam and finished it on the six hour flight back home. What a brilliant book! And it couldn’t have come at a better time. If you haven’t read it, I strongly suggest you do!

Anyway, this book certainly mark’s the beginning of a new journey in my life. And I hope in the following months I get to blog about it all. SO without further ado, here’s a picture that represent’s “Forward”.


Not the best photograph. It was taken on my cellphone during the wee hours of the morning. But will have to do.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Home

So, I signed up for another challenge – the Weekly Photo Challenge – and today’s my first post related to that (and Day 16 of my 30 Day Blog Challenge). The theme:

Share a picture that evokes HOME for you.It might be the place where you live, or a more abstract representation, or something completely different.

Right, this one’s slightly hard – because I have no ‘home’ to speak of. I love Muscat and have spent many happy years here, but is it really ‘home’? On the other hand, Calcutta is where my family is – yet I’ve hardly lived there. Umm, Bangalore? It’s my favourite city in the whole of India but “home”…? Excellent! As if I didn’t have enough problems in the first place… now I have to deal with an identity crisis? :) I refuse to succumb to this now. I’ll just go ahead and pick all three!

But for this challenge, I pick Calcutta, the City of Joy. And my favourite thing about Calcutta? Flurys. Naturally!
