An evening by the lake

A couple enjoying a private moment by the lake

So, we didn’t want to let go of the weekend without a few selfish shots of the city. Anita, friend and photographer, and I, really didn’t know where to head for and finally decided to shoot some unsuspecting lives around the nearby Ulsoor Lake. But it wasn’t as busy as we had expected. The only people lurking around at seven thirty were the couples in love; and only a few. The full moon was the day before and the one in front of us played hide and seek with the clouds.

    Hi Vivek, awesome pictures. I visited Bangalore recently and passed by the Ulsoor lake and saw it from the car. Your pictures paint a totally different picture and make me want to go back to have a look at it.

    Night time photos of Bangalore always look nice.

    You can’t see all the trash thrown all around the lake.

    2nd photo is a really nice one.

    This is sheer magic! I have been in these spots so many times but never saw so much of beauty.

    So, someday when I decide to buy a dSLR, I will ask Dr. Vivek.

    BTW, I think you should consider contributing some pics to the Kartaka Tourism Journals/Mags. Your pics could seriously bring in additional 10-20% tourist traffic!!

    if you ignore the garbage in the tank and the awful smell and people dumping stuff into the lake in the name of religion, such a beautiful place! it was a most enjoyable evening with the moon playing hide and seek. and as usual, vivek, lovely pictures!!

    Beautiful photos to say the least. I came to bangalore just 3 months back and I call it a sleeping city with IT, IT and IT all around. But looking at the pictures taken by you force me to have adekho at bangalore.

    great work man.
