Life goes on

Its been a while since I shared some of the snaps I have clicked in recent times. Off late; I click the pictures and keep it with me; don't share it anywhere. Maybe this behavior is normal when you do things for your satisfaction. Straight to pictures now

River Cauvery along the borders of Karnataka and TN - Hognekkal...A river divides...a river unites...
The Carbonatite rocks; oldest in Asia, the lines and the fixtures telling you stories of the eons past by, the coracle ride offering a vista of nature's treasure.


Blood red cherries....their presence is enough to soothe you. 


An enigmatic hat seller....The boy's eyes were captivating. He was talking like a mature man. I wonder how he would be in 20 years - Fort Aguada, Goa


Basilica of Bom Jesus as seen from Se Cathedral, Old Goa


Shut forever? The door was intricate and it was mysterious since you dont know whats behind it - Se Cathedral, Old Goa 


Another Game...or is it?


I am not alone; I am just waiting for my companion - Karwar coast 


Soaring high to stoop....A fish or two to scoop.. River Mandovi.. I need a better lens


An old photo. Was reading Dear John......got reminded of a snap I clicked long long ago...Of a stranger walking out of the sea with his surfboard....the sun was setting and he formed a perfect silhouette...The protagonist in the novel is just like that stranger...Or that's what I think - Zuma Beach, Malibu, CA, Dec 2007

    1. Maybe sundar.. If you notice, the lower part of the door is left not carved yet..Someone just left it half done. Thats why its the more mysterious

  5. I sense you have suddenly a writers block, that you turned to posting pics that you kept for long.

    The Cauvery looks like alien surroundings in appearance

    1. Anil,

      No, I wanted to start the SL sojourn from where I left. But maybe after a while. In meantime I clicked random pictures; which would not have a separate post for each; so grouped them here..

    2. Thanks Vaish. The boat one was somehow captivating since I saw the boat in the same position before going to Goa. After 4 days on the way back; it was still there as if waiting for someone

  11. Lovely captures! I find the one showing the 'little big man' the hat-seller has an inspiring message for us - dignity of labor and that too at such a young age.

    Many thanks.
