Project 365: Day 69, Travelling

There is nothing like travelling too much, and you don’t need to move out of your home to do it. A nice book can do the job pretty well. Currently I have some 10 partially completed books. When I want to experience heritage, history with some mystery I tap into “Inferno” the recent Dan Brown, for a wildlife adventure there is Janaki Lenin’s  “My husband and other animals” and “Poor Little Rich Slum” takes me through the Dharavi slums…All this with a hot coffee mug…


A book and hot coffee before bed time..



Project 365: Day 28, Low key Macro


Low-key macro of a Lynx Spider

Starting off with a nice photowalk with the Ahmedabad Photowalkers. The venue, a recently inaugurated garden on the Sabarmati River front. The garden is huge with a variety of flowering plants attracting a lot of insects and some birds. A nice place close to home for macros!

After spotting a Damselfly right in the start of the walk, I had switched to my 100 mm macro and kept at it. Was experimenting with high key and low-key techniques when I made this image of a Lynx spider. After cycling back I spent the rest of the day catching up with some much-needed sleep and  reading Dan Brown‘s Inferno. All in all a day well spent!
