So it’s been over a year now since our world as we knew it changed. I returned from my trip to Sri Lanka last year, and have pretty much been in lockdown in Toronto ever since. It’s been a challenging time for all of us as we learn to adjust to this new normal.
I have dedicated my life to the Art of Photography, The adventure of Travel, and vibrance of South Asian Culture. Since I can remember I have had the urge to explore, around the corner or around the planet. But the last year I have found myself like many unable to travel so freely. I’ve spent a lot of time watching Travel photographers youtube channels, and have been inspired by the beautiful places, The breath taking landscapes, and most of all the incredible cinematography. So much so it has inspired me to get a drone, and embrace these new creative tools. It has awakened my creativity and inspired me to re-explore my surroundings here in Toronto with a fresh perspective, and a birds eye view. Since I was a child my urge to explore has also made me dream of flying…Now I can.
I got myself the DJI mini 2. It’s a great little drone for the newbies like me. Because of it’s light weight it allows you to avoid a lot of the hassles with the bigger drones, like registering and getting a license. It’s great for travel, yet still takes amazing images and video. Shooting in 4K and even Raw photos.
It has been a bit of a learning curve, but a lot of fun and keeping me busy learning aerial photography.
I’m looking forward to using this once I’m able to travel again.
One year ago I was on an amazing Journey. My fourth visit to Sri Lanka.
with a Rich Culture, Unesco Heritage Sites, Super Friendly People, beautiful Nature, Tea estates, and Aundant Wildlife. Sri Lanka, the perfect holiday destination is open for Travel and tourism again in 2021
Sri Lanka is truly the perfect destination for a Holiday. With beautiful, pristine beaches if you just want to chill, with stunning sunsets, and you will see something very unique to Sri Lanka, Stilt Fisherman.
But if Culture is more your thing Sri Lanka also has an astonishing array of Historical places, several Unesco World Heritage sites, Ancient cities, Cave Temples. You can visit beautiful temples and learn about Buddhism, and Buddhist history in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka has a unique style and it is evident all over the island.
Buddhism has had a significant influence on Sri Lankan architecture, as it has been around since the third Century B.C. Geoffrey Bawa gave rise to Sri Lanka’s unique style of Tropical Modernism. You can see it all over the island. You can also visit Lunuganga his former Country Heritage Estate in Bentota. It's a relaxing place with beautiful gardens and has been turned into a boutique guest house with just a few rooms. Operated by Teardrop Hotels. I loved my time there.
Kicking off my new Travel Blog with this painterly photograph of some Lotus Flowers taken on the beautiful backwaters of Kerala, South India. In Honour of Kamala Harris. The first Female, South Asian woman Vice president in the US. Did you know Kamala means “lotus flower” in Sanskrit? It’s a symbol of significance in Indian culture. A lotus grows underwater, It’s flowers rising above the surface while the roots are planted firmly in the river bottom. Aside from a lotus flower, Kamala also is a name linked to Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of good fortune.
I hope you have enjoyed my new website and first travel blog post. Something I have put off for a while, but as we have been in lockdown for so long I decided it’s time to start planning for a future when it is safe to travel again. I have been very fortunate to combine my talents of Photography, Travel, and South Asian Culture. I hope you will come by again and enjoy my travel adventures and photography
