Kalladka Tea - KT

A unique kind of tea prepared only in kalladka, Mangalore. Its called KT meaning Kalladka Tea. The taste is amazing and its one of a kind where you can see a clear difference between the milk layer and the tea layer. Remember its not the creaming on top of tea. Its the other way round.

And for all you Graphic Designers out there... Other than cropping image, I have not used a single photoshop effect to enhance or adjust tones. This is a pure raw image straight from the camera's Heart!!!

The Moon, just like an incandescent bulb.

City Wild Life - Canon Powershot S5IS

If 13 is an unlucky number for some, It was sure a luck one for me. 13-April-2008, 7am. The morning rays were piercing my eyes to awake me for a very promising sunday. Before any thoughts about sunday could creep into my mind, I picked up camera and stepped out. My first shot was a close-up of this tender branch.














Then a shot of a Kite perched on the top of a building. He looked quiet Majestic.



















































Thrilled with the shots, I went searching for some little cuties. I wandered off into a little open place near my house. The place is surrounded by trees and lots of small bushes. I often see some Mynas or Koels which come there in search of food. Thought let me try my luck!














I did see a Koel but he never sat in one place. For my luck i sighted a Myna taking a stroll on the side walkway. Yippie!!! I was able to freeze 2 frames of that bird.




























This guy was munching on some meat. Freezed him too!














Just minutes after all these, some squirrels gave a guest appearance. Believe me they really made my day. They were in a really playful mood and were running crazily here n there. I was just a few feet away from it. What more can i ask for. I got some of the best shots which really made my day. Indeed it was a very lucky day. Rather i would say a very Lucky Morning.




























Hey Darling! Dont hide there. Come near me!!!!

Kalahasthi Temple ( for dosha parihara )

Kalahasthi Temple near Tirupathi.

This temple town is famous for 'Dosha Parihara' (meaning to ward off oneself from bad curse or ill luck). Well it did help me to some extent. We stayed in Sri Pushpagiri Mutt. They have very clean rooms and good service. One can contact T.Kondal Rao (Ph: 9849746364) for booking rooms.
