Beyond The Horizon

The World Through Our Lens

Let me just say it aloud, I have been LAZY, or may be I am a firm believer of ‘there is always a tomorrow”. I haven’t updated my photography website in a while, my Facebook photography page has been dormant, this blog site never even started and on top of everything I have numeric sets of unedited photographs! Basically my photography is in shams.

And then….one fine day, just like that, I got enlightenment driving back home. Well, it wasn’t ‘just like that’, I just thought it will make the sentence interesting! It so happens that I have been following a photographer friend or more an acquaintance of mine who has been doing his own ‘project 365’. I always wanted to do it but may be never got the right amount of motivation to do it.

For those who may not know, ‘project 365’ or ‘photo project 365’ refers to the concept of creating a photo journal where you are committed to take a picture everyday and post it somewhere (Instagram, Facebook etc). There is a variety of reasons why one does that (a good read on the topic).

Now I thought to myself that if I start my own project 365 and instead of committing myself to take a picture everyday, I would rather edit one out of my 1 year backlog and post it, it would solve all my above mentioned problems or at least a step towards it!

So here it goes – I am committing myself, starting today, I would post a photograph each day on my Facebook Page, sometimes with a quick back story to it. Some of the back stories will definitely be accompanied with a lengthier (hopefully not boring) blog post on this site. In the mean time I have also been working my website which is used just for my fashion and beauty work but I am soon planning to add all my photography work it.

Last but not the least, I would require all of your support to keep me motivated and see this endeavor till the end. Feel free to comment, critique, bash, suggest and everything else that is applicable.

Cheers

As I prepare and look forward to my upcoming fall trip to the Baxter State Park, Maine, I would like to share some of the photographs I took when I was there last year.

Both Maine and the Baxter State Park are one of my favorite places. Its a 6-8 hours drive from where I live and I visit at least twice a year! The following photographs were taken during fall of 2013 in and around the Baxter State Park.

The following shot of Mt Kathadin was taken from the Abol Bridge on Golden Road

The pond in this shot is called the Daicey Pond.

Cheers!
