Photo A Day Experiment (PADE) Day28 - Special

Not much thinking again, for this Special theme I am posting a pic from my collection that first came to my mind reading the Theme.

Inspired by levitating self-portraits of a Japanese photographer Natsumi Hayashi, I tried this picture with a friend at Rangdum, Zanskar Valley.

This picture post is an Entry to PADE-2013, a month long Photo-blog event. To know more and participate, click here or here. Check themes here.

  1. Punit!!!!!!!! How??????? Wow!!!!!!!!!

    PS: Clear that you have left me speechless!

  2. @Juztamom, I feel his friend jumped and he clicked the photograph. Simple :)

    I also have a similar photograph with my daughter. :)

  3. Really? It doesn't look that simple to me. Won't there be more movement in the photograph? But if you also managed it then Wow!!

    I don't think I will be able to capture it like this. It looks like he is floating in air!!

  4. Awesomesauce capture. Is this you in the picture or your friend? Looks like you (or whoever is in the photo) is on moon and floating around!
    I have never captured anything like this either. This is one 'Special' shot!

  5. Thanks @Juztamom :)

    Well, it was relatively an easy shot, as @StirYourSouls told. The guy was jumping and I was taking multi-shots at high shutter speed (1/2000 sec) to avoid any motion blur. A good light and normal expression on face are the must needed things to make the photo realistic :)

    I expressed it better when my friend learnt to click it, but then it wasn't my shot :P

  6. Thank you @Ritu KT :)
    He was my friend, and we met for the first time on our Zanskar trip organised by Dheeraj of

  7. Naah Punit I think you are just being modest!! It is a great shot!

  8. *shy* thank you @Juztamom :)
    Well, have you visited Natsumi's page? It's a wonderful photography site..

  9. Yes after you mentioned her. And wow some of the shots don't look real!!!!Amazed!!

  10. This is epic .. so expressive yet so subdued .. hats off

Trekking Ghansoli Gawli Dev (Parsik) Hill

It’s been there for geological ages, we have been looking at it for last about 4years and I have been planning to trek it since a long time. Finally, few weeks back, we trekked the Ghansoli Hill.

Ghansoli Hill is located at the eastern boundary of Ghansoli town, behind our office complex at RCP. The hill or better hillock is a part of small range that separates Kalyan and Navi Mumbai towns. A search on Google Map returns with a name Parsik Hill for it, though there is one more rather famous Parsik Hill in Navi Mumbai. We also found a NewsArticle, that talks about NMMC plans to develop Nature Awareness Centre at this hills and calls it Gawli Dev Hill. Here, we would be calling it Ghansoli Hill. I asked my colleague about it and he readily agreed. The very next Sunday we did it with another friend. We weren't aware of the route. All we knew is that a Central Road runs along the western edge of the hill and can be reached through the Vashi-Mhape road. We later found that there’s a Bus…

AshtaVinayaka Yatra with Bisons

(This post has already appeared on Bisons Ride Hard website, to check out click here) Ever since I read Vinni’s post on last year’s Ride of Faith, I have been waiting for this year’s ride. The day I came to know about the Bison’s schedule, I started preparing, until I realized I don’t have leaves. Few days left to the ride, multi-reminders received and I was like, will I be able to make it? Something happened, meetings deferred, jobs got completed and I was able to ask my boss for leaves; and, who can deny you leaves that too for a Ride of Faith, Ride to AshtaVinayaka! I felt blessed that day, and now after the hard ride we had, I know I’m blessed! We are a nation of faith, which plays an immensely large role in our lives, being homely, officially or on the tar. Though Bisons have started riding hard the day they first met at BKC on a fine Sunday evening of July 23, 2011 at BKC; official announcement was made on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chautrthi, Shukla Paksha, Bhadra maas, i.e. Se…

Riders of the Nation of a Billion - Dimensions and Horizons

Incidentally I wrote a post of my tranformation from just around the corner corporate junkie into a Rider (for sure, still gradually) few days ago. Now, here are the Indibloggers with a Contest for the Bikers of the Nation with Castrol guys.

When you look at the scenario of Biking in a general sense, you would be attracted by the road-rowdies and rookies who ride to spread nuisance and are mostly acknowledged for their deeds by the newspaper. Hooligans may be the right word.But, once you get involved with the passion, you would be able to see how the passion of Biking, or rather Riding, is evolving in the country where 2-wheelers over-power 4-wheelers by scores of galactic height, but have never earned respect on highways just coz they are the smallest-speeding machine there! I would try to let you through the Indian Riders tale, so that you  be able to appreciate how the riders of the Country are working, though in a segregative way, to evolve the Bikers’ Code for the Nation of…
