Very Inspiring Blogger Award      The First Cup Award

Facts About Me:
I just wrote a new About Me page for my blog. Check it out.

Rules:
The First Cup Award is the simplest award to roll over, as it is not governed by the Internal Revenue Service’s Tax Code, The Ultimate Handbook of Censorship, The Rich and Powerful’s Rules for Dummies or any other source feigning authority over others except its own supreme yet admittedly unenforceable edicts to follow:

1. Copy these rules and this image to your award post.
2. Choose three (3) bloggers’ artistic works that could make you stop and ponder even if you’ve only finished your first cup of coffee, tea, juicer, alcohol or other beverage you normally partake of first thing in the morn.
3. Include links to these works in the award post and
4. Inform the artist of his or her wonderful award and supreme compliment to his/her artistic abilities…

The Royal Bengal Tiger


The Tigers are one the largest members of the cat family. They are highly ferocious wild cats which are most feared in the wild. These pictures are of the Royal Bengal Tigers also sometimes called as the Indian Tigers which are predominantly found in India and very few places of Bangladesh, Nepal and China. This is in fact the national animal of India. These mammals are highly endangered and there are only around 2000+ in the whole world. The ones in these pictures are just a couple of years old and they are around 5 feet.

It was a cloudy and was about-to-rain and I shot in a lower exposure levels to maintain the colors and authenticity with a decently lower ISO of 200. I just loved its elegant walk. These were shot at Nehru Zoological Park in Hyderabad. I did photograph other animals, but the tigers were the best.

Instagram Collection – II


Its been a long time that I’ve done any Instagram pictures. So I was thinking to revive some experimenting with a few photographs that I’ve shot recently.

I’ve already done a similar collection previously, here is the Link. So, this is my second set of photographs in my Instagram series. As always, criticism is most welcome.

Shaken, not stirred


The evergreen catchphrase of the legendary character ‘James Bond’ -  “Shaken, not stirred”

I know that phrase is used for a martini drink in the bond movies. But I thought it would be, kind of stylish enough as a post title here :)

Okay, here the ICE is the integral part of this picture, which I actually shot to express a way to beat the heat. Trust me, if an Indian says its hot, its HOT. I currently live in Hyderabad, India and the temperature is around 45°C. Damn, its like someone is draining away all the energy in your body. Its tough, very tough.

This is a classic Chivas 18 drink. Cheers amigos!!!

Together We Rise


” Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. ” – Henry Ford

We encounter a lot of problems in our daily life but when we are together, no matter how big the problem is, we sort it out.

Unity is strength. This is not something that we learn from our teachers or school books, but from our true experiences. Together We Rise.

I Hate Monday Mornings


Monday is always the most tiresome day of the week. I just read an anonymous quote – “God gave us Monday to Punish us for what we did over the weekend.”

Well this is my way with my camera to go sad about Monday Morning. If you people have any quotes or photos, please share in the comments section :)
