What is this all about?

So you know platforms like Substack and Patreon? Well, this is similar to them but it's free.

I believe that the context and story behind the art are just as important as the artwork itself. Often, we are not just "buying" the art, but the whole package.

In the past, I was sceptical about blogs because who are you to tell me what to do? However, as I have gotten older, I realised that it's more about sharing what I do rather than telling others what to do (grown-up points for me!).

Since writing is my dolly (Parton) job, be it technical but still, I want to give this a proper go. That's why I'll be sharing my thoughts, reflections, processes, behind-the-scenes looks, and other things here.

I'll try to be consistent, but we'll see how it goes. I plan on having three main categories: Photography, Art, and General (lifestyle if you wish).

For me, photography is more than just taking pictures. It's about capturing moments, telling stories, and exploring the world around us. As a "photographer", I'm always searching for new and interesting places to photograph. Through this blog, I want to give you a peek behind the scenes and share general information about the locations and places I visit.

I'm not experienced enough to give tips and tricks for getting the perfect shot, but I'm confident enough (with a lot of research) to provide insights into the history and interesting facts of the places I visit.

Whether you're an aspiring photographer or just someone who loves to travel, I hope to inspire and entertain you through my lens.

Art, to me, is synonymous with creativity. It does not matter which tools you use, as long as the creations you make are capable of making others think and feel. Calling myself an “artist” is both a privilege and a profanity as I am neither trained nor qualified, but I have learned to believe in myself and my work. In these posts, I will provide more information about my style, journey, media, and anything related to my art. However, my ultimate goal is to inspire you to never stop being creative.

The General category will be about anything and everything. I'll share my obsession with shows like Interior Design Masters and Great Pottery Throw Down, recommend some great music from various genres, and share my views on the world and life. Share my love for baking, old things (Trinkets & Trouble, yes!), cars and quite a few other things! (I once ran a half-marathon #proud).

So, this is the plan. Let's see how long my consistency lasts. Thank you, and I hope you enjoy this journey with me.

Much obliged,

PS. I am not a self-proclaimed prophet, neither is this a cult so it is okay to have different views and opinions as long as we are not trying to convert each other.

PS 3. Oh and BTW, I do sometimes use AI to make it more reader-friendly as my chop and change of thoughts can be much!
