Pictorial travelogue of lesser known Karnataka

You could either travel to oft visited places and photograph the same structures, places, beaches etc and feel good about it. Else, you could trod the unbeaten path and see for yourself. And then, show to the world what you found.

Nishant Ratnakar is one such person, just like us, who chose the latter. He travelled to a list of lesser known places including Baindoor, Kundapur, Basroor backwaters, Shankaranarayana near Agumbe Ghat and some places around Varahi River. He then travelled to his native village of Pangala. Throughout the journey, he has clicked pictures that are not found on travel journals or even on internet. These places do not find their names mentioned even in the list of also-watch, let alone must-do. Lovely pictures… check them here.

I have not put any pictures on this post, just to maintain the element of surprise. Dear Reader, please do check the pictures directly on Flickr. I cannot get better than that.

    Hey buddy, awesome work..after all how often is it that a photographer captures, in addition to landscapes; the feelings, emotions and stories of a bygone era?

    Hats Off to you.. both for the content and the intent. Wish you all the best in the endeavour.

    RK Lakshman and RK Naarayan once travelled around Karnataka. They have a book called “In Emerald country” written by Narayan, illustrated by Lakshman. Swell eh?
