One of my dreams will come true soon – I’m leaving for Panchgani/ Mahableshwar on my motorcycle. Should be around 1,000 kilometers drive, in three days – with photography as my main reason.

So, guys and gals – I’ll be just fine, chilling in the cool air – till Nov 2 night. Should be back to the usual life by 3rd.

If you call and the phone is out of coverage area too long – you know the reason why! Cya!

A Bumpy + Dusty Ride

A Bumpy + Dusty Ride

That’s exactly how life is 🙂

And during this bumpy and dusty ride, it’s very much possible that we lose sight of our goals and mission for a while. It happened to me, during my recent shift from photography-only schedule to a studio-computer-geek-and-sometimes-a-photographer was a sweet and sour experience.

I learnt a lot of new stuff, I felt happy that I was of use to a friend of mine for the while that I worked with him. But I realized that I missed photography so much, that after working double shifts for 4 continuos days, I just could not keep my hands off my SLR any longer! I came home past midnight and sat at my computer desk (in my bedroom) and photographed whatever I could see in front of me!

So finally after a lot of deliberation and a lot of thinking, I’m back to where I belong – just the world of pure light! No more moving pictures, just one moment of memory at a time; frozen, forever.

My web designing work still keeps me busy with previous contracts, but that is good because it keeps my pockets warm enough whether I photograph for a living or not 😉 Good to be working this way I guess.

So while I take the ride of life through this seemingly dark and dusty road… I know the small headlamp of my expeience and the street lights of everybody else’s experiences will shine enough light for me to find my way and also make a good photograph on the way 🙂

Expect more photographs on the flickr photostream ( ) since I am back as the friendly neighbourhood photographer. I’m also planning on writing a few articles on Nature Conservation and will publish them here. So keep an eye out for those too. How about subscribing to the RSS Feed if you have already not done so?

Thanks for tuning in. This is your host for the frame – Harshad. Have a nice day ahead, see you soon and keep clicking and riding the thought train!

Driving Through The Night

Driving through the night

Life looks a lot like this, if you can imagine your experience to be the headlamps, the faint blue sunlight to be the knowledge of others (that we learn through reading, watching etc) and the road – the highway of life!

I am travelling at a cautious speed, especially during the recent detour from my photography-only career to a news production in a studio kind of work. It isn’t a job per-se, I’m counted as a partner in the company when I give my time and experience to the studio.

I’m enjoying the new working environment, the “sit at the computer all day” work – but I can enjoy that only for a little while. For my heart belongs in the wild, in the hills and valleys. With mother nature!

So I’m rethinking about my aims and objectives…. and what I had planned earlier seems equally relevant right now. Maybe the detour is coming and joining the old path again.

I hope that this tiny headlamp of my experience is showing me the right way!
