These days I am not doing much of blogging as am away on vacation at my parents’ home which is a two-hour flight journey from where I stay.
The two-hour flight journey is a really expensive one so it is not possible to make this journey more frequently. Moreover, travelling alone by train is not my cup of tea, because:
- the journey duration is more than a day
- not safe to travel alone
- non-availability of 3-tier coaches.
So, travelling by flight is my only practical option which needs prior planning as booking a flight at the last minute costs a lot of money!
It’s not that I detest train journeys, but I would feel much safer going with atleast one more person I know and trust.
My first long-distance train journey was a memorable one as I was travelling with a group of 11 people, all batchmates from the same university. It was the longest journey I had ever undertaken by train and it took us more than 3 days to reach our destination, Bengaluru from our native, Guwahati.
I came to my native hometown at a very unfortunate time as my sister and her family had all fallen ill – they all had some persistent eye infection that was taking a ridiculous amount of time to heal.
But, despite the annoyance of such a deterrent, they took us out to dinner at the in-house restaurant – Chaska, of a boutique hotel named Pragati Manor.
As is the case with me these days, I like to lug my new DSLR camera in the hope of catching something interesting at a flattering angle.
So, below are some shots I have taken which I felt were worth sharing with you all in this blog as I kind of liked the way they turned out after post processing.
Below are some shots in the Reception-cum-waiting area.
I am trying to improve with each iteration whether it be the picture composition, the settings or the lighting. I did manage to find some appealing elements to photograph although nothing too fancy. Just some ordinary things shot in a new and unique way.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my photographs. Do let me know what you think about them in the comments section below.
Have a good weekend you all!
