End of 2016 is much closer than it feels like. Probably with all that is going on, I don’t actually remember the day or date or time. But it was fun to watch this YouTube Rewind for 2016, even though I don’t know a whole bunch of folks starring in it and not probably all the references made. But one thing I just loved was that Hodor! door scene 😆 That was awesome!
Saw this one which gives more details about the above video. Now I get those references 😉
What a coincidence, that this week’s Sylvain Landry’s theme should be about Memories. I was wondering what to do for a friend who is leaving us and this country for better opportunities and here is a chance. We friends started travelling together a couple of years ago, but he joined us in our travels since this year. So far he has been to 2 trips and four places with us which includes a local and a foreign trip and I sincerely hope that he enjoyed travelling with this crazy bunch, not to mention we enjoyed his craziness too (which is equivalent to sum of the rest of ours 😛 )
I don’t think he will appreciate me writing some nice words and all, so I will skip all that and not embarrass him. But dear Logan (original name changed and this name is used as a result of an inside joke) here is a collage in memory of all the places we have been to. I made sure to add that particular sunset in Tanah Lot you wanted me to capture. And hope that you join us in the future travels too.
PS: Places in clock wise direction: Chikmagalur, Belur, Bali, AngkorWat
Wishing you all the good luck in your future endeavors and wishing you some exciting experiences. May your life get more crazier and more happier.
I wanted to end it with this 😉
Some say the glass is half full, some say the glass is half empty. I say ‘Are you going to drink that?
When I was in Fort Bragg, I decided to visit this light house called Point Cabrillo which was within the city limits. Went there by around 3.30 pm and spent a while there. According to the lady there, who was so happy to receive a visitor from India on her tour of light houses, this one has the third order Fresnel lens where as the Point Arena (which was already in my list of to-visit places) has the 1st order Fresnel lens. There was this one squirrel who was roaming the place and gave me company during my visit there. I have tons of pictures of that little friend. I did hope to catch some whales, but they had already done their visits in the morning. Around 8 pairs were spotted during the first half of the day, according to the lady at the gift shop. Not my day to catch them I guess. But as usual, felt at peace and enjoyed the nature and the cold winds before I decided to head back after 6 pm.
Please click on the pictures for a full view of the photographs.

When I saw Google’s Doodle for today, which said “Google celebrates the 126th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower opening its doors to the public for the first time” , it reminded me of my trip to Paris, even though I didn’t manage to get time to climb that tower. May be next time. It’s a beautiful structure to photograph, especially during that night with the full moon in the background. Here are some of my photographs of that ‘the enormous metallic structure which is now a globally recognized, iconic piece of architecture‘
