in itself .... so creative, colorful, bold and picturesque that even an amateur can feel happy !!!

Moss: In Sequoia

Giant: Tree (Sequoia) which make you feel miniscule.

Horizon: at times look cloudy from far.

Vastness: Empty, spacious but still beautiful. (Race Track-death Valley) When rain falls, it brings down huge amount of debris from the mountains. As water evaporates and wind blows through the valley , bigger individuals (rocks) start moving and leaving marks behind. Looking at those tracks, one can easily believe that they are racing against each other.

Wilderness: Dry, barren but still alive.

Thorn: within wilderness (Death Valley)

Cactus: Focused in its surroundings.

Sunset: Cape May County, New Jersy

Heaven: A place beyond clouds, full of colors, joy and peace.

Thrashed: I had to wait for a long time for this frame but I feel its worth it (Monterey Bay).

Back to Home: No matter How far you stray, you will always find a way to home at the end of a day.

Philadelphia Down TownCrysral Cove: Water trickling down the beach after rain.

Philadelphia National Museum

Walkway: Series of benches and trees along the walkway, Temple University.

Balloons & Boxes

Liberty Mall: Flooring and Ceiling of Liberty mall, Philadelphia


Together: Some unforgetfull moments.

Shelter: In some early times, this fallen sequoia was used as shelter by native indians. Later on same place was used as Horse stable by colonials.

Witness: For ages these natives are watching all the changes in the Grand Canyon.

Phoenix: In most of cases, sequoia catches fire due to lightning and then it keeps on burning slowly for several years. In some cases even for decades. Since its outer layer is fire resistant, therefore when fire finally quenches its heat. It leaves behind a dark and hollow skeleton for a new life.

Past & Present: On the Reading terminal railways station, there was poster showing reading terminal in late 18 centuries. I kept the exposure for a long time(2-sec I guess) so that I can capture present through the small holes of the poster. Eventually it looks as if past is merging with present.

Firm: Nature always shakes and jolts life but those who are firm always win at the end. (Am I being philosphical here - What's wrong with me)

Lamp Post:
.. to the world of NARNIA!!

Light & Shadow

Boat House: aimer.... & always be

: with elegance, Philadelphia National Museum.

Bold: Front gallery of Philadelphia National Museum.

: Philadelphia downtown

: It's not me, that's what they call in Philly - Love Fountain.

Temple: I used to like campus during winter, when it's all covered with snow. More Wise and Entish.

Sequoia: Window to the brave new world (or they just lied).

Laguna Beach
: Evening walk with Seagulls.

Sequoia: with thick layer of snow

: Due to low light condition image got over exposed, which gives the effect of transition to Dark Side.

Shapes: Througout the day as sun moves, different shapes of different sizes and colors appears along the Grand Canyon.

: Under a long exposure, tail lights of moving vehicles have added streaks to the image.

Arched:.... another Perspective!!
Dusk: I have added a sepia effect to the image which makes it more nostalgic.

City Hall: City hall in Philadelphia down town.

: Death Valley National Park on march 2005. This is the lowest point in the US, 282 feet below the sea level. During the summer, it is also one of the hotest area. This lake turns into a thick layer of salt across the valley as the temperature soars high.

Face: I have a habit of keeping a paper sheet on my desk for rough work but always end-up scribing something on that. During old and poor days, I was staying next to Temple hospital which had huge flood lights for security. Accidently, while moving the glass paper weight on my table I got this face.

On Road: On my way to drive cross country (Philly to LA), veiw from my left sided mirror.

Hippo: San Diego zoo is considered as one of the best zoo in the world. This kid was so excited and awed to see a Hippo under water that he wasn't sure what to do .

Skyscraper: Philadelphia downtown in the afternoon.
