Usually in a hill station there is not much to do after sundown. All day I was out for photography and am back at the hotel by the evening. For me, there is nothing better than spending quality time with photographs, clicking them during the day and watching others at night even when I am on a vacation. Luckily, Seenshot Society asked me to judge their National Contest and I am immersed in looking at fantastic photographs under a cozy blanket in a rustic timber hotel room at Kodaikanal. What a great way to spend a vacation!!

World Photography Day-2021
This is how I celebrated World Photography Day!
Printed & framed 37 of my photographs and then went around Chennai searching for those people who were featured in these frames. I gifted these framed prints to them as a part of our AvTvISO-Gift a Frame Initiative.
Their surprise & happy smiles were really exciting! Thank you Shiven & Mohan for thinking of this great initiative!

Don’t judge me… i was not drunk… not insane… not injured. Just whiling away time contemplating existential questions like what came first… the egg or the chicken!
Somewhere in Chennai
I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.~ Groucho Marx
On a photo walk at Mahabalipuram in Chennai, we discovered a small bookshop. There is no bigger distraction than a room full of books to discover and so we stopped and spent some time with them. Added 4 more great books to my library.
Handle every situation like a dog. If you can’t eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away!
I have realized over the years that photography is nothing but an excuse to go to very ordinary places where most people don’t.
Photographers often go to these places not because they have a reason to go, but because they have a hope…
a hope to find something extraordinary perhaps… an extraordinary moment, extraordinary people or another memorable experience!
My cub and I took a short nap after walking around the various animal enclosures at the Chennai Zoo.
Pssst... My son thinks I am the Lion King and he is my Simba ... I didn’t object to playing along... after all, it’s only a few years that a kid imagines such nice things about parents...
