Portrait Session on Farmhouse-I

We had a fun photo shoot recently for couple of my co-workers. I will be sharing the pictures in two parts. These were done together on the same day.

The day was clear bright. We went to the farmhouse of one of the girl- Megha, in outskirts of Dehradun. Circled with mango orchards, tractor in the front with farm dog and other cattle. Such a good life! wide crop fields in the back of the house with canals from the British era. Lovely Megha, very pretty and camera friendly!

Secluded Goa

Goa- My love for slow pace life, where time stand still. As if nothing is important than enjoying the experience itself. I loooove secluded beaches, where you can stay in small cottages, soaking sun and dipping in the sea at your leisure with unlimited supply of wine! What else you need in life? The salty air through tropical palms and sand on slippers.

Goa Touches you like no other place and Agonda tops my list. It is a small dreamy village with minimum nightlife. Don’t believe me, checkout the pictures yourself.

Himalayan Paradise- Manali

Hello lovely readers!

It seems that the blog is turning into the travelogue lately. Yes I am travelling more often than ever. Being an Aries, travel lust has been a part of my system always. It seems to surface now and manifesting in different folds. I am more of seeker by being. So this leads me at spiritual quest to Manali. It was the cheapest and the luxurious stay I had. Okay fine, I stayed at friend’s place. πŸ˜‰ I didn’t visited touristy places surrounding the town rather just stayed and soaked myself in the divinity. The most fulfilling trip so far. A part in me will always long for Manali.

Few things not to be missed in Manali!

  • Go for forest walk- There is little pathway for Vanvihar starting from Hadimba Temple till Mall. It worth walking down. We plucked wild mushrooms and cooked dinner with it. Just be sure that you are very accurate in identifying the edible ones. Few of them can be poisonous. Just a caution.
  • Visit Apple orchards- If you are lucky enough to visit Manali in the apple season, paying visit to the apple orchard will transport you to another world. We stayed at the house surrounded by apple trees.
  • Leisure trekking- there are few small routes in old Manali for leisure trekking. These might lead you to some magical spots.

Now I will transport you to the Himalayan paradise!

Rukkbay cafe- Photo Essay

Hello there,

Β 

Another photo essay for around-the-city project. I went to Rukkbay cafe which in on Mussorie road, near DIT. A very scenic view and rustic decor. Absolutely loved the feel of the small place. If you are heading towards Mussorie, it could be a good stop by for Chai! However do not expect the same level of service. πŸ˜‰ You can also rent cycle for a ride around the location. All and all a nice place. Have a look. πŸ™‚

A Love Story: Sree and Jiji

Hello πŸ™‚

This is one of the most awaited post of this season. Its not a project but friends wedding I attended, but doesn’t make it less to share it on my blog. πŸ˜‰

Full mallu affair! Bride and groom are my very dear friends. Though I have tried to capture and document small details of the wedding so as and when they see this photo-story, they can travel back in time to feel their most loved day! πŸ™‚

Hmmm… you can expect details of the venue, bride and groom for sure, few common north-indian friends in mallu style! πŸ˜‰

As I was there just as a guest, got few hard angles, really had to nudge people with elbow people to get some shots. πŸ˜€

P.S: shooting at your friends wedding doesn’t make you a wedding photographer. πŸ˜›

All and all amazing experience. Go ahead and have a look. Love.
