Russel Market | Once again

I never get tired of shooting at Russel Market. When Vivek proposed for an exhibition on "Markets in Bangalore", I went through my archive and was not satisfied with any of the photographs I shoot earlier.
So I decided to go and shoot
again; this time I was looking for more details, more actions and more elements to be in the frame; and decided to go for B/W.
Vivek said,"There is a strong influence of Raghu Rai here". I agreed. I followed his works on Calcutta.

Tsogyal Shedrub Dargyeling Nunnery

Penor Rinpoche established this nunnery as complementary to Namdrolling Monastery and probably this is the biggest nunnery in India. We were a bit hesitant in going inside the nunnery; a place which is sacred and also strictly women's only .
There was a little boy selling vegetable infront of the main gate pretending to be the care taker of that nunnery. He eventually stopped us. Since hesitant, we were out of wit. Lavannya was the only woman in our group; so being an woman photographer she went inside to find out an opportunity for shoot, if any. Later on we were allowed to go inside and to take photographs. People were so friendly and co-operative that we were over-whelmed at their open-mindedness.

Path to Buddhism

It was the second day for us in Bylakuppe. On the first day karthik saw a very beautiful place while on the way and insisted us to going there early morning when we would get the first ray of sun. While returning from Sera Monastery we discovered the place again and were surprised. It was just beautiful. Both sides of the road had corn fields and down the road the horizon was made with line of blue mountain with some glittering golden Tibetian temples and Monasteries. Indeed , it was a Path to Buddhism.
