I spy : Case I


I spy with a digital eye, this city

(Hint : If you really zoom in, you can probably read some name off the buildings :)) 


So every so often, I will post a pic with the accompanying line:

I spy with a digital eye “……………..”.

If you are interested, take a guess, a wild guess, an informed guess or may be you have a sure shot answer. Leave it in the comments.  The following week, I will post the answer along with any tidbits about the picture that I can remember.

If you are right, well I do not have any prizes or raffles to give away, but you can take pride in investigative work well done, or in your impeccable observation or both! 🙂

If you have a similar picture of your own, post it on your blog and link it to this post, and we can start a “spy ring” or a “spy chain” 🙂

THE “I SPY” IDEA : I was browsing through my pictures folder on a snowy winter weekend with a friend, when she started asking me about some of the pictures like what were they or where were they taken! I asked her to take a guess before I gave her an answer. I realized I have a bunch of such pics where a second look, a closer look, a little bit of googling can mean a revelation. 🙂 Also I love games and puzzles. And so the idea for this series of photographs which I call  “I Spy” came into being. (similar to the popular kids’ game – I spy.) 

P.S. Turns out there is a podcast about surveillance concerns and spying by smart assistants like google, Alexa etc…under the name “I Spy with my digital eye”. It is similar but not in the same spirit as this little game of mine, but  Rant to self: Sigh! When will I come with an idea/ tagline that has not already been thought of…..some day in the near future hopefully!




And so it begins….


This past weekend we had the first snow of the season. And so it begins….the shoveling, the heating, the waiting, the slipping, the falling, the cursing –  (rinse and repeat). Welcome to the winter wonderland. 🙂 

P.S. To me,  a snow covered landscape still looks pretty! (even after spending nine winters in the Midwest and New England)


Weekly photo challenge : cheeky


Amur tiger @ Bronx zoo, NY.

 Tiger Mountain was our last stop for the day at the Bronx Zoo. Most of the tigers had disappeared into the woods. There was some sort of whistle we could hear, probably calling the other tigers in, so we did not think we would see any of these magnificent animals.  But luckily for us, while all others had left, this one just sat there in plain sight,  merrily basking in the sun. Such a rebel 😀
