I know where I am going, and I know the truth, and I do not have to be what you want me to be. I am free to be what I want. Muhammad Ali


Captured at kochi marine drive. Again, when I thought everything is over for the day, during the dying moments of the golden hour of the day, that fishing boat crossed the setting sun, making it the best photograph of the day, and one of my favourites. Thanks to lumix fz200, which made this one possible at f2.8, iso400, 600mm.

A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world. Leo Buscaglia


Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man. Edward Steichen


Today was my first serious attempt on street photography. It was drizzling, and the marine drive at kochi was almost empty, and I thought I will capture whatever worth capturing on my way. Streetphotography is quite interesting. Some people denied my request to photograph them, and the majority was okay with it. Here is the photograph of a street vendor selling peacock feathers @ marine drive, kochi, kerala, India. Humans are really beautiful indeed!. I love humanity. They are wonderful.
