Stanford University is such a wonderful campus. Set in the heart of sillicon valley it boasts the title of being the ivy league college is that fresh and not stuffy. Its stately buildings and rolling gardens are an absolute beauty to walk through and see. I recently vent on a campus tour and snapped some pictures which i’ll upload soon.

This picture was taken by me for an article in the Sunday Times for SL2College www.sl2college.com which is a forum of Sri Lankan’s who have studied abroad who are dedicated to answering questions from Sri Lankan’s in Sri Lanka who want to study abroad.

Sunsets are absolutely beautiful to watch. They pass on such an amazing feeling of serenity that you cant help but feel no matter how busy or hectic your day may be.

I shot this picture at the wharf in Redwood City while waiting for the July 4th fireworks to start. The timing was perfect with two canoeists paddling their canoes right across the reflection of the setting sun.

I hope you all enjoy this picture!

G.W. Bridge – New York



G.W. Bridge – New York, originally uploaded by AbraCadabRa 13.

New York has many many absolutely wonderful sights to keep the first time visitor’s jaw permanently open. Of of these no doubt is the George Washington Bridge.

Having lived right by the bridge for many years I would always make it a point to go to the park overlooking the bridge and gaze down at the hive of activity taking place below me. It always had a very calming effect on me.

Hope you guys enjoy this picture that I took of the G. W. Bridge from the Historic park in Fort Lee, NJ.

Spring Time and Spring Flowers

I took this picture walking around Cupertino in Northern California. Having moved to North California a few months before winter hit the rest of the country, I looked at the greenery around me and though that this must be what it would be year round. Everything looks so lush and green compared to the east coast where I’d be looking at dried up sticks and twigs for 4-5 months out of the year.

I was in for a surprise. Come spring the gardens around me started to blossom and give color to what was already a lush green background to start with. The result is that every time I walk though a residential area, especially in an area like Palo Alto, I feel like I’m walking though the Botanical Gardens. I’m greeting with a rainbow of roses and flowers of all types and form and scents.

I hope you enjoy this picture.

I love the deep intensity of the blue in the background and jelly fish look so awesome. isn’t it ironic that the most beautiful objects are the most deadly in this world?

Underwater Palm Trees

Underwater Palm Trees, originally uploaded by AbraCadabRa 13.

A hammock, nice chilled lemonade and the sounds of the ocean beating on the beach. Seems like your in heaven. ohh wait, we missed a major part of this equation. The palm trees swaying in the breeze. There is something about about the sight of palm trees that just make you think of tropical islands where people don’t have a worry in the world.

Apparently the same applies for the underwater world. I captured these underwater palm trees at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Absolutely wonderful!
