Sunday Special: Photography treats & more

The past week has been super-hectic and I’ve not had much time online. While that was quite blissful, the work has naturally piled up. But I was upgrading my OS and reformatting both my systems – so the thought of  faster systems in the long run was worth the effort. Haven’t had much time to blog, though my head has been brimming with ideas as usual. You know what they say, though, about the biggest intention vs. the smallest action.

However, I did not forget that I had resolved to showcase some wonderful sites every Sunday – so here are today’s specials:
Mumbaipaused
Who doesn’t love looking at fabulous photographs? This blog serves a daily visual treat.
My friend MS Gopal aka SloganMurugan trolls the streets of Mumbai looking for moments to steal from the city that’s always on the move. The city teems with milllions of people and as many stories. So at the rate of one photograph a day, he’s going to take a few lifetimes to document life in the city. I met Gopal about a decade ago when I was enthralled with Which Main? What Cross? 
And – Women, please smile now. Gopal never has his eyes on the road.

Onemansblog
I landed on this site a few months ago and got hooked to the tag line “Specialization is for insects”.  Then I clicked the “About” to read more about John and was obviously impressed. Obviously John lives his favorite quote, which is:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, and die gallantly.
Specialization is for insects.

I eagerly look forward to the updates from this site – which is the kind of resource that really appeals to me.  It “educates, enlightens and entertains.” Go check it out. Here’s my favorite recent post from the One Man’s Blog.
Bitten by the photobug
Now – I’ve had the pleasure of being acquainted with GVK for a few years now when he invited me to be part of the Mysore Blog Park a wonderful initiative where bloggers from different walks of life post, comment, visit and lurk. There is so much to say about GVK, who is practically a one-man institution, if we go by his unique achievements. He’s a retired TOI correspondent turned blogger and to know more about him, it is best to read Mr ERR’s post which beautifully describes GVK. To me, GVK is always inspiring, always educating.

Enjoy, folks!
