Mussorie- a weekend trip

Hi People,

I am here with the new post. I went to Mussorie on a weekend trip. Now Mussorie in July turns into this surreal world, the way most Himalayan hill towns do. The air is crisp and fresh. You not only inhale the purity but also the mystic liveliness of the nature. If you are a nature freak like me, you have much of nothingness to do in place like Mussorie. However for the city folks you can have a planned foodwalk of its kind. However since I have been going there like forever, I have this routine I stick to when I am there. There is nothing much to buy, usual stuff and brands you can buy anywhere else.

Food walk- you should start from the library chauk and walk down till Domino’s then you can first stop at Amitash… amazing Tibetan food my personal favorite is veg fried momos. Within 10 foot walking distance you will see a very tiny place called Casa-Mia… awesome bakery, not more than a hole in the wall but it cane give run of money to many places in Delhi I know. My personal favorite is walnut brownie and fruit cream. After a small stroll you will come to chick chocolate, fancy café. Great for shakes and pizzas. Now walking a distance near the church you will see the best omelet shop in whole India. No that not my grading. India today gave this certificate to Lovely omelets and I completely second them. You might have to wait for hours darlings if not more to get the seat inside the tiny shop. But I tell you its totally worth it.
Turn your gear to relax mode and immerse yourself in the pristine washed surroundings. 🙂

Hello there! 🙂

This post was pending for long and its time to get this moving.

We had a this great session with Bhavana earlier this summer, the last post was about her personalized photo book!

Continue with the show and send me some love…

P.S. I will be doing a full fledge photo shoot with her Elder Sister’s family later this month.. so very excited!!! 🙂

Session with Twins Ajay and Vijay

Hi,

I am live again with new post. This time I got the opportunity to shoot fraternal twin brothers Ajay and Vijay. They peculiarly reminds me of Fred and George Weasley, two of my favorite fictional characters. 

Also I cannot resist working few of the pics as monochrome as the session turned out to be apt for them.

Hope you will enjoy the photos 🙂Image

Vijay at FRI, Dehradun

Hello!

Here is the new session with Vijay…. he is such a lively fun shooting as you can see in the pictures below..

Somehow I am just getting boys as volunteers 🙂 But I really want shoot with girls now.. hope my next shoot is with a pretty girl..:)

The concept was simple, I have always wanted to explore new locations around doon, which has amazingly spectacular surroundings, my first obvious choice was Forest Research Institute. When people from Bollywood can shoot here then how can I keep myself away..:)

Enjoy the pics!

Zorba around the city- Chapter 1 Buddha Temple Dehradun

Image

If you, like me, love elegant, very stylish and comfy shopping precisely every now and then, which does not burn a hole in your pocket, then one of the best shopping destinations I have discovered in Dehradun is surprisingly the small shopping area inside the Tibetan colony in the Mindrolling Monastery in Clement Town.

There are lots of things to do at this side of the city. Of course bearing the benefits of being in the Buddha field and when you are done relaxing you can go out and shop your heart out from the various shops for anything which is chic and dramatically affordable.

Image

Image

If you prefer having a mixed wardrobe which comprise high fashion brands and flea market pieces side-by-side, trust me you will find the best designs and quality with awesome prices. Shops are numbered there. Check accessories at shop no.3, handbags at shop no. 8, cotton pants at shop no. 9 and trendy outfits at shop no. 4. Though the prices are fixed and you won’t get a chance to enjoy the haggling here but whatever the tags are they are very much worth every rupee.

I love love hanging out at the up-town café which is the part of Norjin restaurant just outside the main entrance for the monastery.. Did I mentioned the Walnut pastry here is the answer to CCD’s Dark fantasy,, just a bit better though..
