Old Familiar Faces

by Charles Lamb I have had playmates, I have had companions,In my days of childhood, in my joyful school-days,All, all are gone, the old familiar faces. I have been laughing, I have been carousing,Drinking late, sitting late, with my bosom cronies,All, all are gone, the old familiar faces. I loved a love once, fairest among women;Closed are her doors on me, I must not see her —All, all are gone, the old familiar faces. I have a friend, a kinder friend has no man;Like an ingrate, I left my friend abruptly;Left him, to muse on the old familiar faces. Ghost-like, I paced round the haunts of my childhood.Earth seemed a […]

A morning walk in Lalbagh

After a long, long time I visited Lalbagh botanical garden. Went for walk with two of my friends on a Saturday morning. It was buzzing with activities, people of all age groups, few with family, few with friends, few alone walking, jogging, running around to keep themselves fit. Here are some random shots from Lalbagh –

People and Portraits

Lot of my friends who see my people-portrait photos say that I capture those in an unique way with different moods and expressions. Often a question is asked – “How I manage to capture those expressions?”. Answer – I don’t know. I just wait for them and click. And personally I don’t prefer to capture people posing for me. I go for natural poses and most of my photos are captured unaware of the subjects. MithilNikon D70s, 1/250 second, F/5.6, 75 mm I went on a three day trek in Western ghats and got a chance to meet new people and capture them. So here goes a series of people-portraits […]

Dream that's gonna stay as one

I don’t remember when I read ‘Karvalo’ for the first time, that was more than 11-12 years ago. After finishing the book, for the next week I was contending myself on the book whether it’s a fiction or a true story. Over next few years, I’ve read the same book countless number of time. Just that one book made me a fan of Poorna Chandra Tejaswi. Later, I got hold of his other works – ‘Jugari Cross’, ‘Chidambara Rahasya’, ‘Huliyoorina Sarahaddu’, ‘Abachoorina Post Office’, ‘Kiragoorina Gayyaligalu’ and ‘Annana Nenapu’, about Kuvempu, his father and well known poet & writer. I liked the way of his writing style. Each and every […]
