The cry about what to shoot is the result of the recent rummaging through the folders experience. I work full time so if I can travel once a month I consider myself lucky. But I blog almost everyday for past few years now. When once a month schedule goes awry I am left with rummaging folders of the past trips to find something interesting things to post.
And two things strike me.
At Morecambe, Lancashire, UK
The first bit is that there are trips where I am hard pressed to find even a single picture of myself! On my trips I am usually not interested in getting my pictures clicked (hard treks are an exception to this). Usually I ask someone to take one customary shot just to keep myself in the frame at a new place. And the above picture is doubly rare in the sense that I am actually fooling around. I should do this a little more often.
The second thing I noticed is that I click the same scene 50 times in hope of a better picture. Overall I end up with 500 + pictures but only 15 of them on a different theme. So when I rummage the folders I do not find variety.
So this time I am going to click a lot of pictures on different themes. Here is a small list I can think of, please add to it.
Well there I am, no wonder I run out of steam so quickly. I will end the post on a note to self- keep your eyes open and come back with a lot of pictures and a variety of pictures. Nature will remain first priority but there has to be more this time.
PS. The number of rants on this blog are directly proportional to the number of days since last travel.
I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. I renamed it Travel Tales from India & Abroad in 2016. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video. I was recently featured on Via.com
I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
