I don’t like no paparazzi. Let me just try this hat on, ok?

It’s a wonderful day, ain’t it?

I’ve been guilty of wilful neglect and inattention to my blog for the past 2 years. I shouldn’t give excuses but a busy postgraduate training program and lack of a camera may be considered. Two weeks ago, I got an Olympus OM D EM10 camera with a minolta 58mm f1.4 manual lens. I’m still learning the ropes but without further ado and technicalities, let’s see the image for today.

Getting ready for the the exercise of body and mind.

It’s going to be a great day for cricket, methinks!

What is love?

A bit of Vellore in the midst of the heat.

As you might know, work and studies have brought me back to my old Vellore. Here’s a slice of it. It is sumer here and it is best enjoyed with mangoes.

When life throws such faces as you cannot forget- Trincomalee , location 2

Either I must keep apologising for my regularly irregular absences from here, or I should leave from here altogether. Dear friends, I have gotten into training for a postgraduate degree in Pediatrics in my alma mater (Christian Medical College, Vellore) at which my life is going to be shaped in the next three years (for the rest of my life too). Coming back to the blog post at hand, sometimes, life throws faces at you which you cannot forget. I am not talking about “The Afghan girl” type impact but, you know, somehow ordinary people who leave an indelible impression on us. Here is one that of a child and his father, both fisherfolk, from the harbour area of Trincomalee.

The poses are universal, so too are the “horns”.
