Photography was more of a byproduct of my first big passion - DRIVING & TRAVELING.
Of late, photography for me is primarily about BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY and almost 95% of my clicks are dedicated to birds, remaining 5% goes into other aspects of photography.

Year 2003: Then graduated to Kodak KB-10 in my post-graduation days.
Year 2006 After that the mobile camera revolution started and my Moto Razr V3i with it's 1.3 MP Camera was good enough for me to test the earlier days of my digital photography.
Year 2009: Realized it's time to move on and buy a decent camera, finally got the best point-and-shoot in business those days the SONT T-77
Year 2012: Bought my first SLR camera Canon 1100D just before we planned a trip to Jim Cobett with the hope of clicking the tiger. So this is what triggered the passion and then I happily walked into the road where I knew I would never be able to turn back.
Year 2014: Bought my next DSLR camera - The Canon 70D coupled it with the 400 mm Telephoto. Surely a big dent in my pocket but worth every penny spent.Life has never been the same after that.
With every passing day, this hobby became so serious that now I dedicate a portion of my pay-check every month to fulfill the needs and wants of this (never so expected) expensive hobby. But the fun and satisfaction that I derive after I make every click, is beyond any justification of human logic.
