Travel & Monument

Combining the weekly prompts of Sylvain and Julie here.
Petronas Towers : When you say Kuala Lumpur, one of the places that comes as a must visit is the Petronas Towers. In day light, its pure steel, and at night, its a pleasure to watch it what with all the lights up there. I visited KL, the first time in 2009 and took this with the Canon Handycam that we purchased in Singapore. When it comes to photographs, it doesn’t take them with high quality (too much noise), but I really like this photograph, because it came out much different to what I expected (good different, I mean)

Rameshwaram – from a distance

For this week’s entry for Julie’s Travel Photo of the Week, here is a photograph of Rameshwaram‘s temple taken from another temple called Kodanda Ramar Temple on the way to Dhanushkodi. It was a hot afternoon and we were coming back to Rameshwaram after a trip to Dhanushkodi when we stopped at the Kodandaramar temple on the way. I love this view.

Here is a map of how the places are placed. If you ever happen to be in South India, do make a visit to this small island and to the tip of the land called Dhanushkodi.

Headless Beauty

I just completed writing the second day of our Cambodia tour. While writing it, I noticed a photograph which I took in Preah Khan, which I particularly like a lot. It was raining and we were inside the temple. There was this idol with the head missing and for some reason seeing that in the rain wanted me to take this photograph and I felt that it had a beauty of its own even with the missing head. Sinister in a way but beautiful nonetheless.IMG_9948.JPG
