I have a craze for photography and apparently so did my grandfather. He passed away when I was 12. I have never seen my grandfather take a photo, neither have I seen him stand for one except when forced to take a photo.

A camera loving mantis paid me a visit a few days back. Calling him "Camera loving" might me an understatement. This guy loved the camera so much that it kept jumping on top of it.

So it has been updated to include… Continue reading A Love Story @Central Bird Perk
My entry for this week for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge . This week's topic is Two different things or the number two - Opposites or two totally unrelated subjects or simply use the number 2.

They don't walk, like crows or mynas, they hop around. Another reason why I associate them with jumping is because while most birds take… Continue reading Jump
