Hey sudhi,
This is an international coverpage snap.You should honestly pursuit it seriously.These snaps are so much more worthy than a few comments here.

I was so captivated by the snap, I looked at it for a good long 4 minutes.Brought me memories of so many faces Ive worked with.
Thanks for that.

My discountable suggestion:

See through the wisdom of the endless past ,
far into the youths of heaven vast.

Was lost in the pic, so missed the second part;

Books that mean to me : none.

In the history of my existence, Ive never heard that.:)

You must be simply banished from the commonwealth.

It must be hard to capture the "real" expressions of a person's soul. Congrats on the one originally titled "Affection".

Hey sudhu,
Seems you have taken me seriously; Not that I mind:))
Anyways Can I ask you to take of my handle and just leave the caption , honestly it kinda looks awkward now.

What about the book business? atleast your chequebook should mean something to you:)

Here is my poem based on the first Photo ...I loved so much
I look at their eyes
I linger into their embrace
My soul was there embracing a moment of two
Captured in a lense of time
in unspoken kindness and love

@Suyog, Jess, Kams, Kishori, .:A:.,Nish, Satz, Akruti, Sri, Mermaid, Maran, Vevck, Pallavi, Samudraa: Thanks for your kind comments.
@Uber: LOL...no my cheque book doesnt mean anything to me ;)...have gone digital long back. Honestly, so far havent come across any book which I have accepted whole heartedly..there are these iny-weeny things which I am not able to relate to or things that are unacceptable in many of the books I consider fav. Maybe I should have changed it from "Books that mean a lot to me" to "Books that mean something to me" ;)...thats a straight lift from viju's meme..now I've set it right.
And thanks a ton for your comments on the photograph..glad you liked it. But I still feel and know thta there's a long way to go and lot of work to do before people can consider me as a serious photographer :)
Nasra: Thanks for dropping by and fantastic comments. Keep visiting..I'll do the same.

Sudarshan, the photos have stories and soul. Photos spoke of them. Thanks.

The brilliance of orange light and the grainy tiles on the angular frame were out of this world!

...made me wanna get the throw over on the floor and a pillow and feel for the moment :)
