Life in Cambridge

Continuing from my previous post.
It was time to return back to the afternoon where we decided to head back again into the town and enjoy the views of candid life. Sometimes it is hard to justify all the pictures we take.

On the side note
: I know you do not like to see the watermark versions but I cannot help it because people do not feel like asking before stealing so I have to stick to the way I feel like is best to share. 

What better way to head back into the town and stand in front of the HARDY’s to give it a thought of another go or no go. How can we resist not to visit it again. But this time the view is from outside. 


But then we needed to carry on further onto the right this time. Taking us towards the King’s Parade. The path in itself attracts you to few little alleys and small entrances into the big universities. Ofcourse you got to pay a price for visiting each university ranging between £4 to £6 per adult. Children ticket goes bit cheaper. Anyways we were not going to go through all the universities this time but rather walk down the street gather some souvenirs and follow some old folks paths. 

Since my respected Sir was with me, I had all the reason to listen to him and his sharing of the knowledge that embarks a direction towards new learning each time. We ended up in the bookshop where I was introduced to Peter Ackroyd’s stunning collection of the books about England. Ah it was just beginning.  More will follow soon (You need to follow these blogs)
 
There is always a time to learn something and we humans are never too old for the knowledge. Just as we talked about knowledge, I had to take a picture of this book above to remember it so I know what I will be reading next once I can finish my existing Psychology reading from Sigmund Freud on the Dreams.

Back out in the external world, it is time to capture some different perspectives now.  Back lanes, those old lamps and bicycles along the streets. How can we not capture them – it is the real essence of the Cambridge life.

A little map of its own from the ever changing world casted in alloy to share with those who still seek to see this place in the history of how it has evolved. There is something about all these places – London, Cambridge, Oxford, Bristol and list is endless – the history is so vital to all these places. Something that makes us visit this place more than once and still kind of leave an impression – we missed something. This was my sixth time and each time I can see something new that is interesting for the eyes and for the camera.


A little different perspective to the summer tones which are becoming Autumnal by the end of this week. Last few shadows encasted by the line of spectators enjoying the vivid sunlight of Cambridgeshire.

Philosphy of Cambridge is simple, peaceful and all about concentration. Even in the middle of crowd you know you will find what you are looking for. Moment of silence to still read that book which you have brought along with you. This is immensely attractive place for students and I love to mention it again as I find it so relaxing. A feeling that makes me take the student life all again.

For all other reasons there is plenty of entertainment from the singers on the streets to the tired students who are exhausted with their day jobs seeking to rest a bit regardless even without a seat to sit on. The day and life in Cambridge is rich in colours since students from all over the world count it as the ultimate “Mecca” of all the universities.



One of the places where we all love to go in all such places is souvenir shops. The best place for souvenirs in one place is to visit Tourist Information Centre just behind the Cambridge Market square. You can find all the kind of local souvenirs in one centralised shop. I would say some of the things are unique to other street shops that make it worth a visit.


Ah not to forget the man above Rose Cresent. So sweet that he is best to be seen in proper light as at the first glance you may not notice him to be real 🙂 Just a little tip for the first time visitors of the Rose Cresent man in the balcony.

Life in colour is all we look at and all we want to look at. But for a change there was a reason to share this with special colour impact.

 

& then comes the Tree of life. I love to visit this corner of the Trinity Palace.

Time out away from the universities. It was time to head to Cambs river before the sunsets in. The last few rays of sun embrace the Punting to bring out the best capture for photographing too. Sometimes you do get to see some cool candids along the the river path. Like this one that instantly catches the eye.


Oh, did I not tell you – all the young girls can get the man they fancy with muscles punting along the river while they sit and capture every single muscle they want to capture. Ofcourse the price, that depends on the punter and the girl in the boat who can settle for best deal 🙂 – Upto you lucky ladies.


Walking on the board walk along the river towards the foot bridge it became more and more cool. The last rays of sun going down and the shadows coming into the play – it is soon going to be dark. And we must head back into our hotel since my dear Sir had his knee pain straining – I wanted to ensure we reach back to the hotel room before it turns to get cold.


On the other side of the river was these restless and youthful people who would not want to relax but to enjoy every last bit of this sunshine.



Back into the 150years hotel that has seen it all that has passed in this century. The symbolic hotel from the past that takes us back in time once you step inside. Interesting to know as I did not know that the history is huge in this place and it grows on you as you walk through this place.

This was about time that I should say thanks to Mr Romesh Bhattacharji who gave me this special oppurtunity to share the knowledge from his endless treasure of vast information. This picture below has so much meaning to me that I will possibly look back in time again & again to appreciate it. I would one day want to follow his book and ride the passes along the routes he mentioned. I loved this day to the bits with thanks once again to the teacher, friend, and the Guru .


To get the book from Author is specially signed words is more than I can appreciate for times to come.

& for rest all of you followers, viewers the last shades of nature colors shall fill up your day.


Watch out this space for the next adventure as it becomes bigger to life. Peter Ackroyd, Jean Keay – The Great Arc, NJ9842 and endless stories.

Source of life .. [Sun] – II

Sun, the basic necessity of life which we lack in real terms of life. People run to go south, further south, further east but all of sudden when it decides to show up.. It never lacks to release that power of fresh feeling energy ..

Here we go.. .It was first a decision not to go but then .. Did I really want to miss this expensive sunny day – may be the last one this calendar year of 2011.. baaah baaah.. baaah.. Ja, I m going !!

At first, it seems to be good but it needs to get better until it is the best !! Ride “ON” now @ ranting mankii

Did someone ever say, more is never enough.. So what.. you can get even more.. Just Kick your Pedals 😉 La la laa…

The purpose is never fulfilled – it’s the way we humans are.. I m not going to kick anymore for anymore.. enough is enough.. WAIT, there was a challenger ..

What .. where .. !! It bloody hot, no one is out here !!
Damn, I need to see open my eyes .. Start sleeping in night – Man

You know what .. !! .. It’s a good thought to lose sometimes, I am going to enjoy the hot heat ..my way.. M Y W A Y

To forget, to forgive and yet to be One with yourself – You need to Sweat hard dude!! Oh yeaah.. was doing it out loud.

Sweat is good for health if you still know that you can sweat in October, its bloody cold .. Stop cribbing start ENjoyIng .. Shut up n Ride the RAMP

After all that sweat, you do feel like color blind – sweating like a dog who only has his sweat glands in his mouth !! Damn, oh yes, that true and some believe dogs dont see colours as well.. It seems becoming one was easy when u sweat

Life can be so colourless at times and at the blink of eye it can be the most colourful thing, Autumn is all around !! Yeah, its strange – its summer heat combined with Autumn – that too in Britain !! HELLYEAH

Sing me .. a Song… Song of love, the leaves are going to fall and we are going to separate – love of my life and apple of my eye – I love you to see you but to see you go, you come again in my life – is that what the trees sing to the falling leaves ?? – HOW CAN I KNOW 😀 LoL

It seriously is getting hot.. indeed hotter .. seems I was back home today – the weather brought the hot sultry wind along and the whole landscape seems so classic – faded in luxurious sun

But as we all know.. we must keep going this time to the downhill – the speed and the adrenalin comes along till the flat road hits again – was I really not going to capture it .. OH COME ooON..WHEN DO I EVER STOP

And a little bit more.. A bit more the brit way — goooooooooo

Aaah.. there’s still some more curves along the road.. Can I make some more of them .. OFCOURSE

Dont I get tired, Yes I do .. and when I am tired I am back to doing – what I love to do .. Be myself, Do as the Romans in Rome, Love the nature when in greens. Ooioiiieeeh Doing it baba ..

Even the nature says.. go run away.. do not disturb us !! Yes, they said it out loud but what can I do if they show me so many mini wonders .. SHALL I RUN … no ways

After all this conversation, do u think I am going to quit – no I m going to go for more

Abstracts of nature are the best, one can enjoy when in nature. One of my close friends introduced me to his many miracles, one being his Macro lens, which I miss so much but do hell, till I don’t buy mine – Addie, I will keep haunting you with the macro shots from non Macro lens.. beware, this one goes out to you 🙂 my dear buddy

Enough is once more enough, let me get back – its going to be all uphill and it will make me all classic about it – in unsaturated mode !!

For now, this is going to be it .. I m getting tired – the ride is killing me – too much adrenalin drained out so soon – is also not a good thing .. ting ting..

Well, I must say bye now to all the avid friends who saw the warmest day of the year at 29C 🙂 today. The final shot of the day and till the next time I get to see the sun again.

Sun [Source of Happiness]

Sun, the true source of life. Indeed, it simply shows how much the sun can make the life so glooming. We all in the British isles suffer from the sunny days.
For the first time seeing sun for constant 5 days it is simply unbelievable that how happy it makes people. Everyone around us feel so fresh and cheerful, and people come out talking to you. Amazing and unbelievable but true that Sun is what this country needs the most. Everyone runs down south to spain, Italy, southern france but this past week from 29th Sep till today 02nd october, the records of hot days have been broken and the people vividly happy about it.
Just going to take my bicycle and head out to the sun today, no more excuses but to spend my hour of ride in the sun is a promise for today.
