The St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City made by legendary artists Michelangelo and Bernini among others during Italian Renaissance is a grandiloquence of beauty and structural art. The Piazza at St. Peter’s Square, the hidden tombs and relics of several Popes, the mysteries of Papal Conclave and Papacy, and several other sites were epitome of fascination in a jiffy.

There are multiple perceptions that I draw from this photo shot at Varano de’ Melegari from my visit to Italy. Few being- aim for conquering the Mountains, the difficult terrain on the way to the peak, everybody starts here and so many more!!!

Screeching hot Summers of Delhi, still those pacifying bookish gardens, mercury an odd 4-5 points down, the sun in magic hours, the even mundane shot of South and North Block Secretariat, Raisina Hills, Rajpath was landmark. With a strangly introduced friend of mine, it was liberating!!!

Wonderingly, the caption is an illusional parody. This photo, I clicked during the hostel residency in sophomore time, was the visually refined view from my window past dusk. It does look like as described in the caption though it’s just a lamp post of an abandoned gate with few leaves of some other trees looking like palm trees.

Being still very naive with optics, this picture was mistakenly clicked in this form. The focus couldn’t quite adjust in this low light which created a kind of optical illusion where the blue ring when stared at the center of the blue light, appears to get smaller continuously. And you would be bemused to know that this blue light is actually my laptop’s charger pin light (Dell XPS’s to be specific).

On one of my under-construction solitude sites on the Main Road, Ranchi, typically this road curve fascinated me. There’s nothing unusual but I guess the length of time I sat here and stared at the fast moving lights tickled me its allure. One fine winter evening, I along with Sir Noir (my senior and one of the most vivid photographers), planned this click. It took several attempts for this shot because of the chaotic serpentine traffic.

During my sophomore year as undergraduate in Ranchi, Jharkhand, a trip to Main Road for a specific purpose had me this from a foot-over bridge. The scattered line of red out-of-focused lights are vehicle’s tail lights on the left while the right ones are mostly headlights.

While working for a project in one of the several chilly winter mid-nights, the burning open hearth furnace in our workshop fetched me some random fine flying ember design.
