There's a painter by name Stephanie Tramontozzi. (her design website is undergoing a revamp but you can track her work in flickr) she says she has a big appetite for colours, textures and do least for colours and flavours. she's been feeling a little low in the sail this new year and been trying to find inspiration. and this post goes out especially to her; to Steph who loves a riot of colours as much as i do! hope this generous smattering of vibrant colours inspires her for her next rocking creation. oh and she cooks by the way....:P. down below are two of her works.

I first came across Anoop Negi's photo while i was doing an article on Goa. swell picture that was. as i browsed for Taj Hotel, Mumbai for my previous blog post i chanced on him again and i got hooked. i simply loved the celebration of colours in his photographs and was flattered by his strokes across our country showcasing its ethnographic richness.

Anoop Negi is a stock market investor who has been seriously dabbling in photojournalism for over ten years now...the photographs put up here are the ones that pinned me down. and this is just a peep hole to a plethora of his soul-stirring images. nudge these links for a closer look!

From my short contact with him i gathered he's a great person to connect with and willing to share his knowledge and booty. you can spot him at


As usual I troubled Yoboy for Blogger assistance in this post. thank you sure need a shout out :P

Amazing photos! Thanks for flagging them for me. I've been swamped over the past few weeks with no blog visiting (insert frowny face). Barely time to do my own! Love visiting you always!

You have to find the coffee man. Did you? A clue: it's a man's face. It is the size of a coffee bean. Try again my friend!

Thoma thank you for the popping good colors of photography. On your page they look wonderful, bold and eye popping indeed.

When I said you can use any of the photos on my photostream for what ever work you needed them for as long as they were back linked to me, I had no idea that you wanted to write a post on photography. So this was a pleasant surprise !

Thank you and you have chosen a delightful array of brilliant India for the post.

Stephanie said...

Thoma thank you so much for this. They are inspiration indeed. Anoop's photography is very beautiful! Thank you also for the kind mention! (Bad timing with the website, huh?) But really a feast for the eyes! January blues are fading, February will be full of color!
