Time to say goodbye to  Srilanka ! My week long break is over and I am going back today. Will post the official photos soon. All the photos published in the last week were taken with my phone and my camera ones will follow.

Mount Laviniya beach and hotel. Well kept beach. Only hotels on the beachfront ,  no vendors. And lovers too.

Hi everyone, sorry again for the infrequent posts. I am finally taking a  week’s holiday amidst my schedule. Srilanka it is – wonderful country, people , food and customs.

The sights, sounds and smells of Mahane Yehuda market, Jerusalem

Yes, I might not be able to bring out the sounds and smells of the famous Mahane Yehuda market in Jerusalem but the sights had me spellbound. The light filtered through the translucent covers, the smells of confectionery, fruits, meats and of so much humanity is enough to make any photographer stay on for long. (And I am so sorry for the inordinate delay between the posts. I am back in India and at work.) The 50mm lens was a bit too wide and the 35 mm with autofocus would have been great. But then, it is better to make the best use of your equipment and not make excuses. So without much further ado, go ahead and savour the marketplace.

A Dead sea does not a good sailor make,

One of my favourite images from The Dead Sea, Israel.

 

Dead sea and Ein Gedi

This being the first weekend in Israel, our hosts were keen to offer us a good taste of the uniqueness of the country. They took us on an organised trip to Ein Gedi, Dead sea and Masada. I will put up the images now and come on in later with the details. Wonderful hospitality. Thank you guys.

Descent into the Dead sea region, the lowest point on the surface of earth 427 metres below sea level, literally into the bowels of the earth.

The beautiful Ein Gedi springs region. A good hours trek with lot of fresh waterfalls in between to cool off.

Yours truly, doing what everyone else does in the Dead sea, chilling on buoyancy.
