India known for her rich culture and traditions worship thousands of Gods including various forms of animals. It clearly shows how our ancestors understood the importance of coexisting & balancing with various beings. Today, However we have failed to protect these beings. All our great belief, circle around the so called modern religion and its rituals, which were never ment to be.

There are so many little being in this world which humans consider as being in-significant in this evolution. Sri Aurobindo says

"Life is life - whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man's own advantage."

Close-up photography allow us to get in close with our so called in-significant creatures and to understand their small world which runs parallel to our larger one.

One of the tricks of getting a compelling portrait, with a lot of emphasis on the subject is to use a wide aperture lens. You deliberately blur the background so that the subject stands out.

I have shot Dal lake from various angles and this is my new favorite. This time around I was carrying Sony A99 and caught this picturesque view of Dal Lake with the Hari parbat in the background, across Nishat garden where purple flowers were blooming. Well, The result of A99 is beyond what i expected. Another feature i really enjoyed was the tilting LCD, as this was a low angle shot.
