Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss. But every once in a while, you find someone who's iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare.

The state bird of Uttarakhand, the Himalayan Monal, is a wonderfully coloured bird.

I had written two interesting blogs about this one.

On this day, December 1, 1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat, on the bus, to a white person.

Specifically, her arrest was for civil disobedience in violating Alabama's segregation laws.

This is an image of the Southern Coucal shot at Thattekkad in Kerala. When this bird popped into the view-finder I realised that I had too much of a lens to capture the entire bird. The standout feature for me were the eyes - ruby red with a black cornea. It was mesmerising and I knew, instinctively, that the eye needed to grab attention in the image.

This is a Grey Langur shot a couple of years back at Bandhavgarh. What really caught my attention when I looked through the viewfinder were his eyes. There is something quite arresting about his gaze - seems almost as if he is lost in his thoughts.

I have a bunch of shots from a weeknight shoot at a local guy's track at his house; the reason for the evening was video footage, they had an FPV quad with a gopro chasing the bikes. Looked epic, and I managed to catch it in my shots occasionally 😉
