Lighthouses don’t go running all over an island looking for boats to save; they just stand there shining.”

Wordless Wednesday

Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There’s never been a way to make this easy
When there’s nothing quite wrong but it don’t feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

SL-WEEK 15 : Communications

Sylvain’s theme for this week is Communications.

Remember when the mobile phones came in, how they were used only for communicating with one another through speech. Now its used for all kinds and modes of communication, speech, text, photographs what not. All in a span of a decade and world seems so much smaller because of those. I still remember having my first Siemens phone which sort of looked like a huge walkie talkie (I think I recently gave that to my niece to play with) and was too heavy to carry around. Now its all about slick design, as much features as possible (even if we don’t use half of them) etc. But one thing for sure I am happy about is its ability to photograph. What an easy way to capture some beautiful moments in life. Quite handy I would say.


Taken in Bali during the Kechak Dance performance in Uluwatu. There was a lady before me who was trying to take pictures through her mobile phone. For some reason, I like taking photographs of people picturing something through there mobile phones :) I have done this a couple of times with my friends. And I was glad that I could get the focus correctly in this even before she was done with her photograph.

Tagging this post for Julie’s Photo Week Event for this week.

Le Pakshi

It was a ladies day out and we went on a drive to a place called Lepakshi
Got some HDR shots done from the place.

Okay…Just yesterday (i.e. Friday my time) I got to hear this song for the first time and it was an instant hit with me. Its called “Chingalinga”. Yeah, you heard that right. Its the sound that the keys make when they are rattled. So this song is based on that. (never thought of that and well, I really like that word now…Gonna teach it to my nieces :P ).

Here are some of the lyrics

I got the keys to the kingdom now
They ching-a-ling when my chain hang down
My golden gates got the boys locked out
But who got the keys, who got the keys, oh!
I got the keys to the kingdom now
They ching-a-ling when my chain hang down
My golden gates got the boys locked out
Cause I got the keys to the kingdom now

Listen to it and let me know if you liked the ‘Chingalinga’ ;)
