Visited your local library, or the local bookstore recently?

When was the last time you visited your local library or peeked into the bookstore? If you're like me, then more likely you've browsed through Amazon books online.

Gambling… anyone? For a happier planet, we should all turn into gamblers.

Since wake up time this morning, this crazy notion kept crossing (and doubly-crossing) my mind. Okay, please pardon this cheesy opening... I'm a tad excited. As a kid I read this epic story about a great war that waged between two families - cousins, actually - that started primarily because the oldest sibling (Prince Y) … Continue reading Gambling… anyone? For a happier planet, we should all turn into gamblers.

To treasure or to trash… Are you taken for granted? Do you have no self-respect?

If you think a bit about these two questions, you realize that they are co-related. Well, I'm guessing, nobody begins life thinking to oneself, "I have no self-respect". However, it is possible to live one's entire life without actually realizing, "I have no self respect!". Then suddenly, one day, it hits you. Either, someone draws … Continue reading To treasure or to trash… Are you taken for granted? Do you have no self-respect?

  Facebook का यह मेला क्या है? अजी समझो, यह एक भूल भुलैया है 'गर अन्दर गए, तो फिर बाहर आने की कोशिश, मान लो आप, वोह बेकार ही है. अब ले लो इस बला को जिसे कहते हैं लोग ट्विट्टर ... पंछियों की इस चह-चहाट में ढूँढें किस तरह से हम कोयल की उस … Continue reading Technology Turns…

Hah! Who fooled me?

Yeah, I got fooled... not on All Fool's day, not today, nor yesterday. Everyday, for the past  eight months, and especially over the last few days, I've looked at some archives of my photos! I've searched, and searched, and searched deeper for pictures I would like the world to see... even if they aren't exactly … Continue reading Hah! Who fooled me?

You read my mind!

Imagine you're chatting with someone, either in person (which is so rare these days, unless you're a Mom, or Dad to a pre-tween kid); or you're on the phone (but chances are you don't do that either, unless YOU feel like talking to a real person); or then you're chatting online (more like the way … Continue reading You read my mind!

Pablo Bartholomew… passionate artist, photographer, photo-journalist
