Giving Photography a Serious Thought

Now that I am taken interest in photography, I have rummaged through my old photos and here they are. I took all these photos using my old phone, a Huawei Nova 3e between 2018 and 2021.

In the meantime, I still take photos using my iPhone while I gather my thoughts on how to take this hobby of mine a step or two further. There are a lot of things I need to consider right from determining my photography goals. Once done with this, it will be easier for me to focus on the type of gear I need to buy and also, the type of training I would need.

All it takes is a pair of keen eyes to spot beauty such as this. 

Can you spot Chimi Lhakhang, the famous temple of fertility?

Clouds plant a soft peck on these Wangkha hills. 

I wonder if these chilly drops of water prick into the spine of this blossom, awakening in her some longingness, some sensuality.

There is a reason why no external forces could impregnate Bhutan. Thanks to these brave sentinels.

The human-traffic controller in the heart of the capital city. 

Bumthang, where you find a piece of Switzerland in Bhutan. 

So they ask me if I am a beach boy or a mountain man!

Sunsets in Sarpang remind me of some slow-burn Hollywood flick.

Of clouds and prayer flags; and of Bumthang.

Wangchhu town always gives me a bit of The Giver (by Lois Lowry) feel. You'd know it if you'd been there!

Chendebji Chhorten
It's associated with a lot of stories, particularly of the demoness that troubled the commuters in the past.

Butter lamps at Jampel Lhakhang in Bumthang. My father passed away there and this is offered in his name, in conjunction with the Buddhist norms.

I see it, the photo's too grainy. 

Have you ever thought about how a mother must have felt when she is asked to choose one favourite from her children? I have heaps of similar photos and it is equally hard for me to select just a handful for the post. Perhaps, all beginners experience this pain. 


  1. That's a massive turnaround! Keep up the passion.

    1. They say a picture speaks a thousand words. So I'm just being lazy with my words now. ;)
