Vanishing point

Camera angle

We are regularly seeing people using various social media platforms and posting selfies taken from various camera angles, in the process admiring their own beauty!

“For a period of time, I carried cameras with me wherever I went, and then I realized that my interest in photography was turning toward the conceptual. So I wasn’t carrying around cameras shooting stuff, I was developing concepts about what I wanted to shoot. And then I’d get the camera angle and do the job” Leonard Nimoy

What is the vanishing point?

A vanishing point is an interesting aspect of perspective photography.

‘Vanishing point’ is a point at which receding parallel lines are seen to meet when represented in linear perspective (Merriam Webster)

As you can see in the below image, the steel lines which are actually parallel, appears to merge at the other end, though they never meet.

“Photography is basically an art of arranging the angles!” Mehmet Murat ildan

Why don’t you try this ‘Vanishing point’ next time when you are looking for a click?

Those of you, who have started photography recently can try vanishing point photography from one end of roads, steps, footpath, rail tracks, bridges and buildings. You must stand in the centre and do proper angling of the camera such that the parallel lines meet at the other end.

Thank you for visiting my site and taking your time to read.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Hello? Is it beer you are looking for?

Hello…Is it me you’re looking for?

The title reminded me of the popular  Lionel Richie’s song Hello, which reached number one on three Billboard music charts.

My God! What a beautiful song!

Such great lyrics!

I loved the way it was scripted.

The song was produced in 1983 and I am sure those born before that time loved the song

Do you know what  BEER stands for?

B = Brew

E= Enjoy

E= Empty

R- Repeat

Secret of Beer

‘Beer is an improvement on the water itself” Grant Johnson

Does beer remove kidney stones-real or myth? 

My friend, it’s true to some extent.

But you should be aware of something about beer’s property and kidney stone’s size. ( Kidney stone size is assessed in ultrasound studies).

Beer is a diuretic, which means it produces a lot of urine and can help passage of stones less than 3 mm. If the stone measures more than 3 mm, don’t expect beer to help you and you will be wasting money on beer at the cost of your health and finance.

Sadly prolonged beer intake makes you dehydrated to remember that beer can increase the risk of uric acid stone formation and damaging kidneys further!

And beer is alcohol my friend, sure to harm your liver.

So always better you consume in moderate quantities.

Thank you.

Spread love, not germs!

Before you eat that appetiser, use a sanitiser!

I find a majority of the sanitisers are coloured blue

I don’t know the reason.

If you know the purpose please enlighten me.

Do you carry Hand Sanitizers?

My friend, are you taking enough precautions to hand wash with alcohol-based solutions regularly?

Life is better with clean hands!

I am glad you are careful and smart enough to know the implications in case proper hand cleaning is not done.

But I am finding some problem.

I have come across a few people who have become hypochondriac and carry the Handy Hand Sanitizer and are more busy cleaning their hands than doing their routine job.

Imagine a person rubbing both hands with the sanitiser 10 hours a day!

More dramatic!

Almost a sort of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder! (OCD)

Life and our behaviour

My friend, in life everything happens in equal proportion.

Better to be cautious and do things within normal limits.

Too much good only returns too much bad.

Side effects of over usage of sanitiser

  • Your skin becomes very dry
  • Eczema can set in
  • Can cause eye damage if eyes come in contact with the solution accidentally
  • Remember hand sanitisers can’t remove the germs totally as compared to proper hand wash.
  • Sensitive skins can’t tolerate hand sanitisers
  • Some formulations said to affect fertility

Which is preferred -Hand sanitiser or hand wash?

My friend, hand wash is better any day.

Of course, it must be readily available to you otherwise you can depend on sanitisers.


Hand sanitisers are not as good as washing.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

“You miss 100% of the shots, you don’t take”.  Unknown

As an amateur photographer, I was trained to have an appetite not to miss any opportunity.

Strangely my eyes are always looking for something of interest, to be photographed.

Because of this habit, many times I miss ‘family time’

And fortunately, my family understands.

I am thankful.

One must be patient all the time especially if one is interested in photography.

“Patience is the essence of clicking great photographs”  Abhijeet Sawant

‘Just because the lizard nods its head, does not mean it’s in agreement” African Proverb

I was having my morning walk and I noticed this little fellow, a young garden lizard inside the fence may be waiting for its morning breakfast.

He did not move, allowed me to have a click, but his eyes were concentrated on me as to what I am up to.

Thank you my lizard friend for this cooperation.

Many people fear, the very sight of lizards. It’s an anxiety disorder.

This fear is known as Herpetophobia 

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Three types of people in this world

“There are three types of people out there;

Those who lean, those who lift, and those who lead.

People who lean immobilize you; stay away from them.

People who lift inspire you; keep them near.

People who lead positively influence you; seek them out.” Farshad Asl

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Just one person around the world

What exactly is the above person doing?

Is he pointing a finger at somebody else? Or

Is he wondering about something unbelievable, he saw just moments ago?

And we never know what is he up to.

But one thing I can say that he is charming, got a smiling face and looks like a happy and contented man.

And he appears pleasing and a gifted person.

After all in one’s life what else one wants and wishes for?

A smiling face and a contented heart.

“Contentment does not mean that I desire nothing, but rather, it’s a simple decision to be happy with what I have” Paula Rollo

Are Contentment & Satisfaction the same?

No, my friend.

Contentment is happiness in one’s situation. One is at ease physically & mentally. Contentment is a permanent status. You are happy although you did not achieve or gain something.

Satisfaction is gratification.

You are satisfied only after fulfilling a deed or need and you get pleasure out of this.

And you aim again for the next goal and it’s never ending. Satisfaction is temporary.

Cady says

“There are a lot of folks in the world, who are everyday folks, just trying to provide food and shelter and love……….they are trying to make a living…….keep their kids educated and basically just take care of their families, without an agenda. Me too. I think there is more of us…. Just trying to live our lives….. So, I would like to take the time to focus on one person a week to bring us together, to celebrate ordinary folks”.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

A slice of a good life

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.” Mahatma Gandhi

Bread is the simplest form of food.

Bread is a staple food.

There are more than 30 varieties of bread in the world.

Sadly we take bread for granted all the time

These days we are not giving much importance and respect to the bread-which it is supposed to command!

We forget that bread is a basic food worldwide

Bread plays an important role in religious rituals and cultural life.

Food riots are scary things and can start with a bread shortage.

It’s said bread shortage has ignited the French Revolution.

Bread is prepared from a dough of flour and water. And we waste water just like that.

Are you aware of the Egyptian proverb?

“Rather a piece of bread with a happy heart than wealth with grief.” Egyptian Proverb

The real King

“Bread is the king of the table and all else is merely the court that surrounds the king. The countries are the soup, the meat, the vegetables, the salad, but bread is king.”  Louis Bromfield

Can Bread be a Delicacy?

Yes. It is.

“Malta is the only country in the world where the local delicacy is the bread.”  Alan Coren

What about people wasting food?

Less said better.

In India, there is significant wastage of food during wedding times. India’s estimated 10 million weddings per year said to waste almost 30% of the food.

I am not sure about food being wasted in other countries.

“Throwing away food is like stealing from the table of those who are poor and hungry”  Pope Francis

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
