My Kitchen Head in La Digue   Leave a comment

In La Digue Islands, my dining was fulfilled by this generous Lady who proved an expert in preparing all variety of the Island Menu as fast as an electric oven. The serving tables were kindled with her proper care in service and hospitality. The queries about the dishes and recipes added beauty to her service .Thus, the winter evenings of the coast were rejuvenated by the dishes served by this Kitchen Head of mine like a gentle breeze embracing the hot

Colors in the Dawn and the Man following the Musical Notes…!   Leave a comment

The dawn was glittered with the colors in the clouds above the golden beach of Solana in the winter.The huts were getting the chill and warmth of the morning wind and the rising sun…! When the light spread, the man with his guitar started playing the tough notes   recollecting the rhythms lost in his black shirt, sitting in the corridors of the Solana Beach that were paneled with the morning lights and the wind..!

I have seen the trails of a kingfisher in the country woods….;   Leave a comment

Night had been over by the sound of droplets trickling down from the trees around the plantation in the countryside valley as there had been rains last night.Early in the morning ,I started making the morning tea when I heard the splashing sounds in the pool near the cottage and looked through the window glass to know that it were the flapping of wings of a kingfisher in the pool around .So, I finished with my tea and took my canon500D and looked out of the window to see the kingfisher on the branches nearby:

It was the white-throated one with cerulean blue wings and  long ,maroon beaks …I kept silent and a safe distance from the wall and the doors with my canon 400mm USM and begun shooting the behavior of the bird after the early dawn bathing ;the wings were slightly spread out and jerking the body in full swing,it began to rejuvenate; many times,it was a little bit difficult to get the focus  as the postures rapidly changed in fractions of moments!Thus, moments passed, the sun shone up more , the leaves and shadows varied in the breeze emerging from the lower part of the plane ;meanwhile the Fisher kept its position still on the same spot in the branch but its postures and movements varied from one to another instantaneously……the morning had awakened into bright lights and the rays got more hot; I don’t know how much the shutter button was released within that while and it is only when I had thought it was enough, I took my hands away from the button and moved back.Then I thought about the tea-table for making preparations for my light  breakfast. By this time ,my white-throated companion had left the branch……to another one away :

Postures changed rapidly and the entire body was shivered to spell out the wet
