Mistakes are like a house of cards, with one other follow. This is what exactly happened to me a month back during a short vacation down south. Honestly, I do not prefer long bus journeys, I simply hate the restricted space along with limited or sometimes no access to washrooms. With a seven-year-old in the team, it becomes an even more challenging task. But as fate would want I had to take a long I mean really long bus journey from Madurai to Rameswaram.
My original plan was to take a train from Madurai to Rameswaram but this did not work out as on the day that I had originally planned to take the train had absolutely no direct link service. However, a blog did mention about a train from Manamadurai that would directly take me to Rameswaram. So without wasting any time I booked the tickets. Later I realized that this was a mistake since the departure time was at 5 AM in the morning and Manamadurai was not a distance that could be easily be covered with an auto that too in early in the morning.

Venice is well known as one of the most alluring cities in the world. It’s featured in numerous films and its one-of-a-kind layout as a city crisscrossed by canals makes it seem particularly special. Throw in an ancient history and all kinds of interesting buildings, monuments, and museums, and Venice, Italy can be a sightseer’s best dream come true.
The city is more than a postcard in motion, however. It also provides a lot of interesting things to do if you’re a traveller who likes to take a more active approach.

This is what photography equipment that I carry on any trip, One DSLR body, four lens, one flash, one action camera, at least three batteries each for my camera, flash and action camera along with countless number of memory cards. Apart from this I have to obviously carry my mobile which I use for navigation, calling, surfing the web for information and sometime for photography.
With my next holiday scheduled for next week I plan to do an experiment this time. I am not completely ignoring my DSLR setup but will try as much to photography and videography with my mobile camera. With the vast improvement of lens quality and available megapixel these days’ mobile cameras are power packed with processing power to even shot in 4K resolution. So this time I am planning to use my mobile for the maximum possible situations.

Everything was going according to the plan perfectly, the batteries recharged, lens cleaned, tripod tested even the flash was wiped clean after a really long time. I was all excited to shoot and just could not hide that big smile on my face. I had finally found the opportunity to have a short stroll along the lanes and by lanes of old Delhi. I always wanted to do this and somehow never managed to find any time. This changed however on my last trip to Delhi when my work schedule coincided with Independence Day weekend.
I had tracked down the house of Mirza Ghalib and on reaching, I opened my bag to click photographs of the place. The setting was perfect and after framing the shot I pressed the shutter button and nothing happened. I tried several times but it just would not budge. As the habit, I kept pressing the shutter release harder and harder and it just did not click. Out of excitement, I failed to see the warning on the screen “Insert Memory Card“.
