Finally we went there on saturday(22nd Jan 2011) and reached at Pragati Maidaan Metro at 11:40 am... After reaching at the entry gate, we saw a huge line and the end was not even visible to us.. The line was for entry and there was another smaller version for getting tickets... Finally I also reached the counter and asked for three tickets and the person managing that counter asked for 600 rs... I realized that I am short of money and asked one of friend to give 300 rs.. After getting tickets, we also followed the queue and entered into the hall where ART SUMMIT was going... Here are few photographs I could click inside the summit area... Check out !!!Here is a metal art showcased by one of the French artist !!! Are you able to see the art?

This was already sold and it was unbelievable to know that large percentage of art-works were already sold.   of becoming an artist because he thought it's easier that Software Development :) As we spent more time and talked to various people around, we got to know that how much hard work and thoughts go in creating a single art... Here is an artwork with a face having lots of other elements and a hidden face... A lady standing there was explaining about this art and there were lot many folks listening... We were not able to make out much out of that talk and thought of moving ahead... but this one was one of the popular artwork in the summit (A general guess by looking at the crowd, because in Delhi wherever you see crowd is known as a popular place, especially any eating place...)I liked these hanging lamps... I went to my childhood when I saw these first time at my Grand Parent's place and after that I couldn't find them anywhere... There was a huge Art project based on lighting and these lamps hanging around..Another Metal Art !!!Don't know much about this particular artwork but looked like something made up of stone... but not sure, so no comments !!

We saw lot of mirror arts in ART SUMMIT and all of them were amazing... This was a mirror created of various triangular pieces... As you go closed to the mirror, the partition size seemed to decrease and moving backward it was increasing... By the reflection inside the mirror is mine with Camera...Again the same art with few more elements in the photograph for better composition !!!Here is gang... I asked them to stand there to have a photograph as a proof that they visited ART SUMMIT... I was expecting them to click one of mine photograph as well but none of them offered :)Mr Ankit Sood on the left - A student of Delhi College of ART, Deepak Gupta - who is going have long hairs soon and planning to exhibit his artwork soon...

Rohin Duggal @ Banerghatta National Park, Banglore, Karnataka, INDIA


PHOTO JOURNEY inside zoo of Banerghatta National Park Banglore : Posted VJ SHARMA on www.travellingcamera.com : I am sure you will be surprised to hear Zoo and Wildlife Sanctuary at one place... Yes, Banerghatta National Park has a Zoo as well... When I planned for Baneghatta National Park, I was not aware of the fact that it has Zoo as well... After Reaching the ticket counter, I saw a board saying discounted ticket for Wildlife Safari inside the sanctuary and Zoo visit... Banglore Zoo has lot of snakes and most of the crowd is seen around those to figure out where they(snakes) are sitting... Here are few Photographs I was able to click during a quick visit to Banerghatta Zoo... Check out !!!Don't know the name of this bird.. so please do let know in case you know... They were very shy as you can see from the expression in this photograph and there were lot many other birds with various combinations of colors... I had few more photographs of this bird but all were shaky because of lot of movement there... These birds were most active inside the zoo.... Others like snakes, crocodiles, leopards, ducks were really lazy and we couldn't figure out the cause... Even Monkeys were not very active which is a very unusual thing..There were lot many crocodiles inside Banerghatta Zoo and that I saw the height of their laziness... There were few cats inside their court and jumping on their backs.. No Reaction... They used to go near a particular crocodile, check about its activeness by touching the tail and then start all those activities when confirmed that it's not going to hurt them... Many of the folks were standing their for more than 30 minutes to wait for one of the crocodile to take some action, but nothing positive was happening their... and those cats were having fun there :)Sankes - Most popular species inside Banerghatta Zoo.... There was a separate section of various types of snakes and it was naked as snake park inside Banerghatta Zoo... I had never seen these many snakes at one place and there were lot many varieties new for me... It was hard to locate them because many of them were hidden between the branches of the tree or under some rocks etc.. Some of the snakes were 7-10 feet longs and have been playing on bamboo sticks hanging on the trees inside their courts... It seems people don't miss this part of the Zoo during their visit...There was a huge area provided for birds and it was somewhat similar to the Delhi Zoo... Although we were not able to see many birds out there... Also we were very tired after wildlife safari in Banerghatta National Park and didn't want to spend much time to find out more birds there...Many families come to Banerghatta Zoo to enjoy the weekend... I was surprised to see this family with all the stuff like carpet, bat and other stuff... It seems they have come for some picnic but Zoo is not a right place I guess... Ideally eatables and such things should not be allowed inside... I don't have any strong reason for that , but I have seen people making these places dirty... People should think twice before spreading their waste stuff at other's living area... Can they do the same thing inside their house?Oh Yes, I didn't want to miss this particular thing about Banerghatta Zoo... There is a trend of adopting some of the animals of the zoo and many folks have done this... Like this particular Horn bill is adopted by Shri T R Rithvik... This effectively means that Mr. Rrithvik is feeding this Horn bill for some particular duration and probably other costs as well... A nice concept and good idea to support all these rare species  on earth...There was a man outside the zooo who was selling some liquid which creates colorful bubbles... I wanted to capture those bubbles but all I was able to capture was bokeh of all those.... Never mind, I like it :)Rohin Duggal, My friend who made my Banglore trip memorable... Thanks to Rohin !!! btw his girlfriend was out of station and I can tease him by saying that :) On the very first day in Baglore we visited lot many places... Banerghatta national Park, zoo, Butterfly house, MG Road, Bragade Road and UB City ...These folks were wondering why I am clicking a photograph of Rohin... and Rohin asked to click one of their photograph to make them happy... Monkeys inside banerghatta Zoo...Afte completing one round inside Banerghatta Zoo, we had some coconut water in the market outside the zoo... It was amazing, but honestly I didn't like the 'malai' inside it...There are few museums inside the Zoo campus.. Here is one with photographs of various types of birds with some details.... There were lot of school children inside this museum to know about various species of birds and next agenda was to locate them outside....There is a small museum in the zoo which showcases zoological exhibits... Banerghatta Zoo has a reptile park and a small theater as well... Banerghatta Zoo is closed on Tuesdays which is a weekly holiday...

Shshshhhh.... A lonely road near Shimla Mall Road but its all safe !!


Many times I meet people visiting Shimla and at times, few of them say -  
Many times I meet people visiting Shimla and at times, few of them say - "What's there in Shimla to visit/see".... "Shimla is too much crowded" .... and I say "What exactly you expect to visit in a place like Shimla" ...


In my opinion, Shimla town has best walks around the Mall road which passes through wonderful deodar forests, very old British Architecture and should I mention about weather & freshness of the town?


This is one of the street in the photograph, which is near to Vidhan Sabha... And the BEST part is that places in Himachal are extremely safe but that doesn't mean that one should be careless about it ! bcoz, exceptions are always there which may happen with anyone in bad times.. But Shimla is one of the favorite travel destination. In case you are planning for Shimla and need more info, catch me at VJ@travellingcamera.com and I am not a travel agent :)

A very old Church hidden by long deodars on the way to Mcleodganj, Upper Dharmshala, Himachal Pradesh !!!

Most beautiful natural colors I have ever captured in India !!! It's rare to see colorful and neat places in India.. Many times I saw wonderful photographs from various countries with lots of colors and cleanness, but never encountered such places in India. It was a very quick visit to Dhamshala/Mcleodganj and we stopped our car near a church on the way. When we started moving towards the church, I saw this wonderful view !!! It was right time of the year to see these colors of deodar cones !!

Colorful Fountains in the middle of UB City in Banglore, Karnataka, INDIA

Last year when I visited Banglore, UB city is one of the place in the list of Must-Visit places because I had heard a lot about it... And finally reached at the parking of UB City where we were the only ones to park Maruti Zen !!! Most of the cars in the surroundings were BMW, Mercs, Audi etc... Then we took a lift and reached in ground floor which looked like reception of a five star hotel... After roaming around we came towards open air restaurants which were too much crowded and had to wait for a long time... During this waiting time we had fun around these colorful fountains.. Children love these and used to play with water... Finally we ended up enjoying this evening around these fountains without eating anything.... After the lovely evening we had dinner at some Andhra Restaurant !!!There are some nice bars and restaurants on first floor of this complex....Here is a photograph of Parking slip @ UB City Banglore. If I remember correctly, they take it back and doesn't allow visitors to take them back.. We requested him but he denied politely..There are some fully serviced Residences inside UB City by the name of Oakwood...

An American Lady walking around Humyaun's Tomb in Delhi, INDIA


Few days back I met her at Humayun's Tomb and she wanted to ask something but hesitating to start.. First she started with a simple question about my Camera and introduced herself. She was travelling in various parts of India for last few days... She keenly observed some of the worker there who were doing some maintenance work at main Tomb... She was mainly worried if these people are completely going to change the monument or it's just few main pillars of the Tomb... Although she was appreciating their work and some of them were really changing the art-works on the walls... Suddenly after few minutes of conversation with this lady and I also thought about it ... and realized that soon we may see a new/Modern Humayun's Tomb if not maintained well !!!

Cute Girl on Tabla @ Delhi Drum Circle - Deer Park , Hauz Khas Village, Delhi

Few days back, I got to know about Delhi Drum Circle through Facebook. It's a community where all the Drum lovers or I would say music lovers get together at Deer Park in Hauz Khas Village on weekends with their instruments. It's very good to see such things happening in India and I guess Delhi & Mumbai are much ahead of other cities in this sense. Although I may be wrong... During this event, I saw few kids playing these instruments so well. One boy was on flute and he was awesome !!! Here this cute girl was just sitting around this Tabla and enjoying the music there... Although she was not playing but interest towards Tabla in this age is also commendable... I am planning to go tomorrow for Delhi Drum Circle with a small drum.. Let's See...

A little form of Lutyen's Architecture @ India Gate, Delhi


India Gate - Alive at Night : Apart from the nigh clubs and pubs, there is another place in Delhi that comes alive at night. It is right at the heart of the city, India Gate. However, unlike pubs and clubs, most people are there to spend time with their families. The whole area is vibrant with Children, Newlyweds, joint families and amongst them all, hawkers to sell some of the Delhi's famed streetside food. You can also see dotted here and there some policemen to ensure nothing shady happens in the bushes. : India Gate is majestic and is surrounded by some of the most interesting buildings of Delhi. The whole area is under 24 hour security cover as it should be considering the President's house is just a few metres away. You don't expect such an area to be the party hub for middle-class Delhi Families. But it is!The monument itself stands in memory of the brave soldiers who died fighting  in World War I and the Third Anglo-Afghan War. If you look closely at the walls of the monument, you will see the names f all of the soldiers who lost their lives. And beneath the canopy an eternal flame known as the


I am sure that you will be able to recognize this Lamp if you have visited India Gate or President's House in Delhi !!! These are made up on red stone and carved to give this shape... Most of the buildings in this area are made up of same stone.. Like President's House, India Gate, Museum of Modern Art etc...

Some Panning Experiments during MTB Himachal 2010 : (Mountain Terrain Biking Event organized by HASTPA) : Posted by VJ SHARMA on www.travellingcamera.com : I was never a fan of Panning technique of photography but the pace of MTB Riders and the passion of accelerating speed compelled me to try it... And believe me it was not a simple task to do panning with unpredictable speed of these riders... They were extremely fast and suddenly they used to disappear due to frequent turns on hills.. During last two days MTB Himachal 2010, I tried few shots of panning and here are the results.. Check out !!!This was very first shot of panning I tried on third last day and this motivated to click more :)  ... Since it was evening time, light and relatively slow shutter speed helped me to click this photograph in such a way that motion is clear in the final results.... Now I was more confident to try it again during next day !!!Here is another photograph, but it doesn't look like panning shot but I liked the way final result came... It was evening time when we were very near to the camping site of the day... Here is another photograph and I loved the star effect in the background... Colorful dresses of MTB Riders and natural beauty of himalayas helped making this photograph more colorful...Here is a photograph clicked with Fish eye and the rider was very near to me... Thats why there is some distortion in back tyre  of this cycle...gain this can be called as panning shot... Best way of shooting a good panning shot is to anticipate the speed of the object and then set same shutter-speed.... Here is one rider from Kullu, Himachal Pradesh...Another rider of MTB Himachal 2010...


This photograph was clicked last year during Mountain Terrain Biking event in Himachal Pradesh during October. This is first time I seriously tried panning but believe me it was too difficult with these guys :) Everyone has unique speed and very fast, in fact... And there is no chance of clicking two panning shots with one rider :)

Few Experiments with old Architecture of Jantar Mantar @ Delhi, INDIA - 5


Although the photograph is dull but I have clicked this on a very special day... btw the dullness of this photograph is due to exporting it through a software which tried to be over-smart with the Photograph and spoiled the sharpness of newly bought Canon 50D :) ... This Photograph was clicked on a day when I had to wait for my punctual friends for 3 Hrs in Cannought Place in Delhi !!! I just walked to Jantar Mantar and enjoyed the day with my Camera :)
