Balaju Park

I captured these images while I was with a friend in the park. The Balaju park also called the Baish Dhara(22 tap).  The park occupies a small area, consisting of swimming pool, water spouts built in the 18th century, flower garden. A small replica statue of Budanilkantha is made here, specially for the royal families as they were barred from visiting the Budanilkantha  temple.
A bird was sitting by the side of the fountain. The image was shot at f5.6, 1/50 s, ISO 100, 300mm.

Just Some Clicks

I was playing with the camera in the dark and a trick came up my mind(I had seen images like this in the Facebook pages). I removed the UV filter from the lens and put it in the middle of the book, though it took me a lot of time to balance the lens filter. I took the picture at 55mm,f-5.6 with an exposure of 1/2 sec. Later I converted it into a black and white and increased contrast.

While I was having launch with my friend, the cook was cooking samosha. I had seen the image like this before and wanted to make one. So I clicked the pic immediately at 28mm, f-4.5 and exposure time 1/40 sec. Later I photoshoped it to make the image look like this.

Chhath Parva at RaniPokhari

Chhath is an ancient Hindu festival dedicated to the Sun. Chhath is celebrated mostly by the people in Terai region of the country. The festival is solely dedicated to the sun and is celebrated by doing a puja at sunset at the bank of the river and ponds and staying awake all the night at the bank, enjoying together with family members until the sun rises and ends with a puja of the rising sun. The images here are from Ranipokhari.
