Last Sunday, I was invited by Darter Photography, a boutique photography tour operator to give a talk on my travel experiences to their customers on the occasion of Darter Photography’s first anniversary. The event, held at the Page Turner’s bookstore on MG Road, Bangalore got about 50-55 participants and was a great forum to meet fellow travellers and photographers. I was the non-Darter speaker and spoke about my travel experiences, especially my 26 month break from work. This was followed by macro and wildlife photography sessions by two of Darter’s participants and then closed by sessions by Arun Bhat and Shreeram M V, founders of Darter Photography. As the session came to an end, Darter shared their travel plans for 2012 and it was great to hear about their international tour plans especially Bhutan, Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Kenya. Darter seems to have gathered good popularity in their first year and I wish them all the very best in 2012 and the future.
My presentation, which is primarily a photo slideshow was well received both at the event and in the social network circles. Hence, thought it would be appropriate for me to post it on my blog. Hope you go through a whirlwind tour of India while scrolling through it. A copy of the presentation (PDF format) can be downloaded here.
