ROADS IN GOA....

A little diversion from the usual cooking scene , i want to share some of the photos which shows you goa in a scenic sense.If you like the photos pls say so as it gives me encouragement to click more and more. pls give me sincere comments i dont mind criticism.

I am fascinated with roads , whenever I go visiting a place the first thing that i start clicking are the roads as that’s the first thing that leads you to the place.Then when I reach the place I again start clicking
I have a strong affinity for roads I feel that as the food and the people are the heart of a place the roads are the veins and the arteries , without which there would be no life in that particular place . only by observing the roads , the way they are maintained, the locals walking, the hawkers selling their goods , the cleanliness, traffic sense the list goes on and on... you can know the place at the first instance.
ROAD GOING THROUGH A VILLAGE IN GOA

I click roads for their scenic beauty too , I would like to share with you some of the roads of Goa which I had clicked last year but were just stored inside...
In May this year, when I was busy clicking the scenic Mountain View and the turns on the ghats, on my way to mahabaleshwar. I slipped and my camera hit my lap , for which I had to pay a large price. Hence I have promised myself to be careful and no go berserk while clicking photos.

Those pictures look great! I particularly liked the first one; very dreamlike...

I love seeing such pictures as they make me travel without moving from my seat!

the pictures are good but here are a few suggestions...
a) choose a focal point for the road.ex.a temple at the end of it,a road sign on it,or maybe just some roaside vendor.a plain road photo looks boring and vague
b) i think the last photo is hazy due to it being clicked from the car

Hi Mahek

I love this blog! I am a photography student. I was in Goa last year and hope to go again. Is Mapusa market open ONLY on Fridays do you know? Everyone refers to it as Friday market so I don't want to book a trip if i misss 6 days out of 7 shooting! I don'yt mind things being quiet if it is open!

Thnaks again for your hard work!
