From this moment on...

There are innumerable moments in life but remembering one particular moment where I took oath to do or not something is pretty hard to recollect. I haven’t took anything serious to remember a moment but there are certain places, in the journey of life, the collection of phases from different time moment converts me to be like this and that. I love traveling from the beginning and I could not sleep well (in the excitement) whenever I know I’m going to travel by next day but until 2006 or before started bogging I wasn’t passionate on traveling. I bought internet connection in 2003-04 mainly for learning about places and checking it virtually as I could not go to see all the places due to my immobility, at least let me explore the places online.

Name the flower pls?

In Dec 2005, we bought an apartment flat and moved out of our native house, and during that event my uncle captured some photos with his digital camera which I uploaded in my computer and shared on the blog. This was the turning point and the feel I got by sharing photos and friend’s feedback inspired me to show more interest on photography. Then on I kept looking forward for a camera to shoot and share. At this moment, understanding my interest, my cousin’s conveyed my desire to his father who in return giveaway his camera to me and thus began the journey, the inspiration for the travel. The May 2006 Kodaikanal vacation ignites both the interest and rather taking portraits and group photos my passion for nature shoot began there.

But the real excitement of photography and traveling begin in year 2008, when I upgraded to 8 megapixel camera from the mere 3 mp and the micro mode in that makes feel delight shooting items on close distance and getting enriched detail. The Valparai visit on the same year was my first adventure travel and wild shooting. And writing about my experience and narrating the stories of traveling was another exciting phase I always look forward to relive the moments through words and photos. To say from this moment on, photography and traveling has transformed my intention of living and my blogging style also become different from just knowledge and facts based posts. And to say from this moment on, blogging has changed me so much and gave some hope to look forward in life.

Your journey actually made your life so much better. As you make new friends and share your world you communicate. That ability to talk and express things improves everything about ourselves. When I tell people of all the friends that I have all over the world, they ask how is that possible. Bloggers all know the sharing of photos and the sharing of thoughts is a growing experience for each of us.

It really does open up the world, doesn't it?

I enjoy your blog, Jeevan. I may never travel to India, but I can see it here. :-)

I can see your passion and interests to share everything through blogging. We have so much in similarity even though we are miles and oceans apart. We also benefit from reading news and knowledge from foreign bloggers about different cultures besides developing lifelong friendship. I wish you all the best and may we be the friends for life in blogging.

I am actually jealous of some of your photos - you see what others tend to miss, and capture it beautifully! I too started to travel a few years after I started my first blog. I never knew traveling could be exciting until I actually started traveling regularly while living in Coimbatore. I try to travel regularly now also, but practical reasons like time and money prevent me from indulging. But I am happy that I am able to write a few travel posts now and then in my blog.

Isn't it amazing how photography can make you see and enjoy more about life? And blogging is a great way to share. ;)

Your pictures are beautiful! It is interesting to post pictures along with our posts. I liked your pictures on the theme 'fences'. I still remember them.

I too started late to post pictures in my posts. But now, I don't like to do a post without pictures!

Enjoy!
