Just as February is synonymous with Spring, in many places across the world March symbolises Summer. There are places which are alive with colours, while some others are gearing up to blossom. And in countries like India, Summer means only one thing- no, not blossoming flowers or colours, it means Heat and blazing sun. But it is also the season where families look forward to escaping the heat to hill stations or cooler regions.
Gautham, who decided to not wait for peak summers and take a break, went off to explore the mountains in Dharamsala and McLeodganj. He shares a few photographs showing off the beauty in those destinations, which are up above, as if a part of the blue skies..

Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest. In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change. Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day!

February is synonymous with Spring.. its said to be the month of Romance as well, thanks to Valentine’s Day falling on the 14th. There is something in the air, magical, a mystery…je ne sais quoi, [literally translated to ‘I don't know what’] …. Mandira shares with us this lovely photograph taken during a routine walk around the neighborhood park saying it gave her such a feeling. She felt happy seeing it, even though it dint add to any special moment.. Probably just the month or the air…. Such simple pleasures of life make so much of a difference….
An unknown flower spotted in the neighbourhood park and captured on camera on a cold, winter morning.
A bright and sunny flower, that put a smile on my face and was a good beginning to the day.:)
Along the journey called life, we are so caught up in moving along, making sure we make the most of the time we have on this planet that we forget everything else. The people we see on the streets, and smiles on the children’s faces make so much of a difference, a simple Hello or a Hi will change someone’s day. You never know, you could be the reason someone smiles or the reason why someone’s day got better.. So, here is Kumaran sharing images that he says made a difference to his life….
A passion to freeze a moment and hold it for the years to come is an art, an art for a person who wants to see the world in a different perspective and love the beauty of it by making a photograph.
Clicking a picture is easy…and more so in this technology savvy world. But the challenge lies in capturing the moment, emotions and the real expressions in one’s life. Children have always been the favourite subject for any passionate photographer. They always portrait the true feeling at any situation and bring out that childishness and innocence.
Freedom Behind bars
My first encounter with my favourite subject was at a government school in Chennai on Independence Day. It was my first such experience and i thoroughly enjoyed observing their actions & reactions, but capturing those precious moments on a photograph was quite the challenge. I had to unleash the child within to enjoy the experience.
No wonder photographers are always fond of children… they are cute, they are fun and they are a challenge!
