Introduction
They say life is best seen with eyes half closed. For me, life is best seen with eyes half closed on to a camera's viewfinder. Through the lens, I see myriad images, shapes and colors.The unusual. The off-the-cuff. The waylaid. And the meandering.

Have been shooting professionally for 4 years now. Yet, I've been a photographer all my life. My artistic instincts lean towards Mother Nature, the beauty of night and snapshots of travel to varied places.

I am Prashant. And this is my world, as seen through my Nikon. My work is available on NaikonPixels in case you wish to purchase an image.Either in print form or also as a licensed image.

I'm also on 500px, DeviantArtFaceBook, LinkedIn and Twitter. And if you wish to hear my voice, call me on +971 55 5789865.


Bragging rights
Hiked China's great wall, driven from Milan to Pisa to Rome, went cruising along the Mediterranean. Once upon a time a table-tennis champion, cadet of 8 Kar battalion naval unit NCC.

A tale of two sisters - Washington DC.

One of the fae and the other human. They meet in the woods where the moon appears both day and night. All they dream is of the knight who would come on a horse to take their pictures. End of the tale.

Happy new year 2015!
I read it in book somewhere that what ever you do at the beginning of the year, given some momentum, you will continue doing it for the rest of the year. It's quiet true isn't ?

Half of the world is already in 2015. I'm just few hours away. So with all great gratitude I wish every one a fantastic year ahead.

Here's one of the favorite photo from 2014 taken in Angkor wat, REP.

Cheerios!

“Reality – as you see it, and as most people see it – is nothing more than an illusion. There is another reality, beyond what we see with our eyes. You have to feel your way into that reality with your heart. There is no other way.” - Gregory David Roberts.

Thank you so much for all your wishes. 
I feel blessed and overwhelmed by all the wishes I've had from different time zone. So it was kinda 48 hour birthday celebration. I decided it should not just end without a photo share from my favorite place that is Western Ghats.
Hope everyone is having a great Christmas. I wish everyone a great and fantastic year ahead. Enjoy!


Yours Sincerely,
Prashant

Quiet times - Dubai Marina. 

Early evenings are best time of the day in Dubai but the exodus of the people in and out of the street never leaves it in quiescent. Though the evenings are filled with clangor, Marina is so grandiloquent that it besets almost everything that comes to sway its display of magnificence. Its no less quiet except during early morning before heat and late night after heat. 

One has to drift away from the frame, away from the swarming uproar of the city, so far away to find the tranquility that is set in the last hour of the evening. Its a godsend time of the day for photographers. Quiet times!
