    well if you must know this is in the heart of Bangalore, India...people remember this place for its traffic and software industry. I hope people start seeing this side of the city too! :)

  22. 22 comments for you post? Awesome!
    much more than your photos themselves :-)) I think I should start charging for every unit of fame you receive now through these photographs :-))

    Way too cool, you bird freak. Good thing is am not gonna complain publicly in front of your fans. But next time, dear photographer its going to be just flowers :->

  23. wonderfully vivid colors...great composition on all shots...I miss bangalore.. lived there for 4 years.. by the way do you know about the "Rule of thirds"?? a couple of these shots would have looked very interesting if shot with that rule in mind...google it... great work man great...

    rule of thirds will follow with practice
    Cheers,

  26. Hey..I feel so ashamed..I lived in Bangalore for 22 years and I dont seem to know this place...maybe becoz most of my activities were restricted to Airport road...Is this near Sankey Tank or Ulsoor lake....And all the places r known for pollution n traffic...so I am lost n feel really dumb!

  27. @scribblez
    i dont blame you. Bangalore has grown so much over the last decade that the first thing that strikes you is the congestion and traffic...however there still are a few parts of blore that are fresh and untouched..lal bagh and cubbon park are few such places

  30. Hey Anoop,

    I'm very glad that ur photographs are enhancing the image of Bangalore..!! Lately people only talk about bad infrastructure and only negative aspects.. U're giving a new dimension to "NAMMA BANGALOORU". This is a gr8 thing happening on ur blog..!! It has made Bangaloreans realise it is still a beautiful "Garden City" and outsiders know the other side of Bangalore. I really admire.. :-)

    Keep it up!!
