Swiss guards at Vatican. Change of guards, one to another, captured together.
It is hard to see a good sunset in the city these days, esp. when you look to the west and see buildings reaching for the sky.
I always try to catch a sunset when I visit any coast, a rare sight, for me atleast.
This one is shot somewhere along the coast in south-west India. The light reflecting of the sea just completely illuminates the world around you in a yellow-orange hue. Simply astounding!
Onam is a festival mainly celebrated in Kerala every year. It is a harvest festival, although there is a mythological story to it too. You can read it here.
Seen here is a typical flower decoration/arrangement called pookallam.
Onam is on 23rd August this year.
This little fella came out when the rains had just reduced to a drizzle. I assume its really hard work for a small creature to climb up a 5 foot wall.
This just reminded me a lot of the movie Shutter Island. Gives a really creepy feeling.. especially with the rain and the stormy sea.
The reality of it is that this place is really just a romance spot 🙂
The light house is mostly not functional and is used by “tourists” to be “alone” 😛
Shot at Coorg. I’m not sure if this was used for something or just as incense.
