photographs

Good times, noodle salad

pictures that induce happiness and somehow manage to distract from the realities of real life.

ps: have you called your mom & dad lately? do it now.

père lachaise

i had been to père lachaise cemetery once before on a previous trip to paris, but had literally run in and out in a frenzy of sightseeing just to look at jim morrison’s grave (one of those shameless things you just have to do, like visiting the eiffel tower.) this time round i had plenty of time to walk all through the huge grounds. i honestly think it is one of the most beautiful places in paris – mostly because of the tree lined avenues and the feeling of escaping the city as soon as you’re within its walls.

all photos by me, more at my flickr.

hello my name is dev has a cool photo collection, and i chuckled at his profile description on flickr, “i’m addicted to the internet… i don’t think i’ve logged off since 1998.” yup. that pretty much sums up my sentiments, too.

i didn’t take a lot of photos this holiday because i was either eating, reading, drinking, eating, lying in the sun, snoozing, eating, drinking, walking on the beach, riding my bike, eating, napping etc etc. you know? but i did wander onto the beach one evening before sunset to take these shots. the sky really was all pink & blue! maaagical.
