Exploring the world through the viewfinder! I love to travel and photography is a great excuse.
Art belongs to no one. I'm not going to hunt you down for using my photos. The world and all the beauty we create in it is for everyone to experience and enjoy as they want. Go ahead and spread the joy :)

"Bala’s photography is full of awesome. As someone who’s fairly new to the wonders of exploring the world through the viewfinder, I am addicted to Bala’s photostream for picking up ideas and inspiration, both of which are available in much abundance there. What I like the most about his photography is the simplicity it holds, even with all the technical precision that one takes for granted with Bala. The depth of personal involvement he has with his photography is obvious. I have never met him, but I can almost guarantee that his shots are never mere clicks – they are memories, stories, and anecdotes – and that’s what differentiates riveting photography, from just technically sound photography.
Happy new year, Bala! And continue the good work in 2009 :)"

"Bala is a constantly-improving photographer who continually blows me away with his creativity and artistry. Just by looking through his stream, you can see how far he has come in so little time; it's a shame that I never got to walk around and pick his brain or watch him take shots before he moved. Hopefully I will get to one day, and until then, I'll be studying his stream learning what I can, and enjoying his awesome work."

".Bala is just an all around good guy. Not only are his images thought-provoking and professional, I admire the interaction he has with his Flickr contacts. Even though he is thousands of miles away, I consider him a friend. Don't ever change .Bala!"

"Interesting personality and his photographs reflect it. Creative Photographs that bring out emotion, detail, color, nostalgia and last but not least humor. Love his sense of humor. If you like his photos, you probably will like him. Cheers!"
