Better Together :)

There is no combination of words I could put on the postcard
And no song that I could sing, but I can try because this is your heart and this is
Our dreams and they are made out of real things
Like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart, like
Why are we here? And where do we go? And how come it's so hard?
It's not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving
I'll tell you one thing, it's so much better when we're together

A Thousand Words & More

For quite some time now, I haven't been posting regularly at my (now discontinued) photoblog - SnapShots. That was not because I wasn't taking any pictures - on the contrary I think I have taken more pictures in the last couple of months than I have ever taken! :) Well, this is what I was waiting for -
My new blog : A Thousand Words & More (go see!!) 
They say a picture speaks a thousand words....
This place is for all those that say even more :)
Its not just my blog - co-founding it with me is my dearest friend Shyam (who btw, as people on my facebook might know, takes all my wow-wale profile pictures.. such as this one & this one too! :D). He has this knack of making even the plain looking people look diva-ish :P Say Hi to Shyam people, he's really a great guy :) Read more about us here.

And now go over to my new awesome blog! And don't forget to follow it, I promise I have some really great pictures coming up there.. :) I am super excited about this! Yayies! :D

Lots of love,
P.S: Lot of new stuff coming up on this blog as well.. Keep coming back! Love you all! :)

Black Swan

So I finally saw what was one of the most talked about movie for this years Oscars. And true to the recommendations, I wasn't disappointed. Though I admit I haven't seen any of Darren Aronofsky's / Natalie Portman movies. Since its a good movie seen in recent times by me, it very much deserves a review.

[Contains spoilers, if you haven't watched yet, please do go and watch - its well worth it!]
