Ceiling artwork.

When the takeout order takes too long to arrive, what’s a photographer to do?

Ceiling design at the Riorico restaurant of the iconic Hotel Mandovi in Panjim, Goa. Placed flush on the floor, the iPhone 7 lens was just wide enough to frame the circle.

PS: Two exposures were bracketed to retain some detail in the lamp area.

      For this image I used the default Camera app that comes with the iPhone. I have other apps installed, too, which shoot in RAW.ReplyCancel

Only in Goa.

A strange sight in Reis Magos. This White Snapper (chonak in Konkani) will fetch the lady at least ₹3000 (~$50).

    Dom explains it so beautifully and all that came to my mind was “nice fish!” Sigh.ReplyCancel

    Wow what a catch! I spent 21 years in Reis-Magos (Verem). Your photo brought back school days memories.ReplyCancel

    A camera is a mechanical ingenuity but without the perspicacious eye overseeing/orchestrating its function, it is no more than an inert artifact. And yes, it’s all about timing and timing is not a vacuous occurrence. It is the moment when perception and the existential moment become one in the realization of perfection, the kind that’s spectacularly exquisite and universally singular.

    Hint: What are the odds that Margaret’s shirt pulls in all the elements that encompass the surrounding vista in the embodiment of Goan identity? Bravo!ReplyCancel
