Welcome to my gallery of rotating around the world….
When you’re the son of a railway officer,travel becomes an inevitable part of your system. And now,work takes me all over to capture fascinating sights,situations and people.
This blog is more visual than verbal. You can google all the info about a monument, vacation spot or festival. So why waste time duplicating data ? I hope to capture candid shots apart from stock imagery.
My camera gear is minimal – A Nikon P900 bridge camera with an incredible 83x zoom that eminently fits into my scheme of things. And a Samsung Galaxy A9(2018) with Quadra camera.
Welcome again ! Ready to rotate with me ?
