The Nutmeg story


  1. Wow, I've just spent some time browsing through your site (just now the 'travel related' section) and I love it. Makes me want to visit India. I'll put myself as a follower.
    I would really like an answer regarding the camera you use. I'm thinking of buying a new one.

    1. Thank you Nathalie. I use many cameras. The current and most used one is Canon 6D.

  2. Outstanding artistic eye. I love the fact that you have found photogenic moments among the (seemingly) mundane places around Bangalore. Kudos. Im a followe!


Thank you for visiting. I genuinely value the feedback I receive. If you can spare some time, let me know what you think.
