AnomalyCity: Pot-ted Beginnings

When you can’t venture out into the city, you begin to learn more about your own surroundings. As I surveyed the world from my terrace, I noticed this plant growing out of a drain pipe. Ewww! As I thought about it, but then immediately realised it was actually getting its “soil” and water on a […]

Necessity is truly the mother of invention. ‘Jugaad’ in the true sense is made possible when one really needs to get something done, no matter what!

Photo Insight: You are being watched

Person of Interest on Prime Video has an 8.4 rating. All about a super intelligent AI that’s taking over the world. It’s closer to the truth, that’s why it’s fiction.

Photography: Have you seen a Skink?

When I saw it for the first time, I was awed by its shiny look. After multiple attempts, managed to get a clear shot with my Nikon D5500, 55-300mm.
