Thanks for being here.

 

If you have added me to your contacts and I have not added you right away, please do not feel offended.

It is just that i am taking some time... to let you and I know/appreciate each other's work first.. If you comment on my work it is quite certain that I will be seeing your work. I have been on flickr long enough to know that one way traffic sucks.

 

I have a fairly large list of 9000+ contacts whose photos I try and look at on a regular basis and comment as well. It would be quite impractical for me to to add every person who adds me as a contact because I can not possibly do justice to your beautiful photos. So please bear with me.

 

Thank you Flickr for having such a wonderful platform for photographers. Even though the sporadic changes in the presentation are a pain the community on Flickr is a fabulous one. I am thankful to the Editorial team at Yahoo for showcasing my work and photos of the legendary Bull Race in Kerala.

Cricket analysts often judge a great batsman by his range of strokes. If that yardstick were applied to the photographers who post on Flickr, few would make the cut. Anoop Negi, though, would - for sure! The vast majority of good photogs. are stuck in one genre, even if that genre is vast. Anoop on the other hand has, over time, regaled us with photographs of tropical landscapes, old architecture, cultural activity and personae, models for clothing, and many other subjects. His posts often include interesting background information. His skill is at the pro level - the kind of level that a publication or commercial establishment could hire/use with trust, a level that's still beyond many of us. His knowledge is such that, every time I post a photograph here, I hope it will receive the honor of Anoop's critique. (And he's been kind.)

Regarded as a guardian of Goa culture Anoop Negi invites me and all to a wondrous reality – the seldom or never seen traditions of India. In his vast and stately collection I perceive marvellous beauty of ancient ceremonies, astonishing nature – ocean and land, and, especially, eminent portraits of people – ordinary and extraordinary: elders and young. Annop has, with all that surrounds him, a natural agreement of gentleness and respect: you can see it in the eyes of those he take photographs – and you can observe it in the details – including every photos extensive and informative description: in light, motion, colours, location and position – and in the unnoticeable more – When I see a photo by Anoop I can not help ... to look again, as if caught by something indistinguishable. And the reason that happens is because ... there always is ... something more: particularitys that had me mesmerized the first time. All is intended – in Annops work.

Day in and day out we can gauge the moods, aspirations and existential outpouring of life and creative work of each other, but never pause to consider it in depth and maybe define a person out of our perceptions.:: ~~ ANOOP NEGI ~~ Isn't that wonderful? It's only a glimpse of Anoop's exquisite writing for you here. Now, whatever I wanted to say about Anoop and his outstanding photography skills have been all spelled out by the seemingly endless testimonials below. So what else can I say but to agree totally ?! This man knows his stuff ! I've been riding with Anoop since his Coracle and the Kerala backwaters days... following him since and finding his photos both fascinating and educational. He writes eloquently and elegantly accounting his every journey in each photo that he puts up here. He never attempts for any attention to himself but his followers are many. I'm humbled by him. I respect him in every way. A perfect gentleman who is kind, generous and oh so talented. His comments on my photos always make me smile and I search to see what he puts up here, next ... and next.... Dear friend, please carry on the way you are. You're very special.

It has been more than one year since I know him. and apparently I am one of the few blessed souls on flickr who got a chance to meet him, more than once :P shoot with him and 'learn' from him. I am the one who has taken all the liberty, being such a naughty student if that to say the least.. and well, it is now I am writing these few words here.. ( ...am so sinful) I guess this is what shows I haven't yet learned my lessons ...Gurudev. Well everyone here on Flickr talks about , how influenced he or she is of your photography But I am not going to add anything on that front because It has turned in to a phenomenon in itself. It is something that I am hardly qualified enough to comment about. I know you more as a Guide, a Person whom I look up to for advice on anything and everything related to photography and beyond. In one sentence, I know one thing that.. well, "you know how to do it right" We had planned for a trip together to Ladakh in 2010 to shoot that wonderful high world of barren beauty. It is a pity, that I had to make it there all alone.... and then you made your trip later. I hate you for that as you were doubly blessed with the warm hospitality of the Defence forces to provide you inputs on Ladakh whereas I was left to wander on the India - Pakistan border all alone :P But well, I'll make sure, that I create random chances and more opportunities to be bestowed by your august company and actually learn more from you.. Thanks for all the gyan...gurudev.. you are the best.. goes to show why you're one the most popular persons on flickr.."

Sirjee - as i fondly call Anoop (Ezee for many), is my favorite photographer but more than that he is a great human being. Kindness, patience, humility, openness and willingness to share with others his knowledge, is what makes him special. I strongly believe that only those with great heart make great images - and Sirjee is such a great example of one such person. He is also the one who inspires me to continue photographing everyday, his images are not cliched and offer his unique point of view. His work celebrates the beauty of India - the colors, the people and the endearing human story behind. Sirjee also has a gift of gab and he has a way with words, I tell him he should write a book. !! I know i will meet him someday .. and it will be a special day for me. Thanks a lot Anoop Sir - you are a great role model. PS: I know not why you fav my not so great pics too but your words mean a lot to me - so keep em coming !!

When Anoop wrote a testimonial about me, I was humbled— for he is a photographer that I admire as among the most talented on Flickr. Not only does he have a broad command of the technical aspects of photography, he has an incredible eye. His work is broad and it is diverse. From stunning landscapes to amazing portraits to images that tell a story, Anoop has mastered them all. To me, his trademark is a exclamation of a vivid color or a to punctuate an image. The brightly colored bus, rounding a corner— providing a sense of motion, as well as drawing the eye through the image in a pleasing way. A monk in a crimson red robe, surrounded by tones of gold. A series of story telling images. From fairs to carnivals to Free Tibet— I have learned a lot from just spending time with his photostream. And, Anoop always seems to find the perfect thing to say about my images, when he comments. He often picks something that I had overlooked, yet when I see what he is saying, I understand better why I liked my own photo to begin with. Of all though, his efforts with Free Tibet, personify Anoop. He is brings a social conscience to Flickr. A low key effort, yet I believe it was an effective one. When he had the Free Tibet initiative on, I was skiing in western Canada. I remember stomping around in the snow to find an image that would fit in his effort. I found one. I published it. It made explore. I was shocked. I was also gratified that perhaps, in some small, incremental way, it helped the cause. So, as you peruse Anoops work, you are seeing a remarkable talent at work on many levels. It is a journey of enlightenment! He is a master!

Anoop's talent is truly admirable. His photographic perspective seems to come from a deeply spiritual place. He enhances the beauty of both the mundane and the magnificent, and inspires you to see the world in a different way.

When I first stumbled upon Anoop’s photostream I was pulled in by a visual feast composed of his marvelous images of Indian Festivals. In these Anoop managed to capture the decisive moments brilliantly and delivered these with strong compositions and incredible color. In addition Anoop has the amazing ability to convey an array of emotions through the eyes of the performers he photographs. As powerful as these images are Anoop’s abilities transcend into other photographic disciplines with equal excellence. His skillfully captured landscapes are a delight to look at. The more I look at Anoop’s photo stream the more amazed I am by his gripping and beautiful images. Now that you’re here take your time to look around and enjoy!

A as I call him has the gift to 'see' with his camera what we see through our eyes. His pictures are real life stories, sometimes funny, sometimes sad ,but always honest. His stream is a place of great interest. His photography is truely inspiring, I wait for each of his photos to be uploaded for more inspirations. Very generous with his explanations on how the photo was taken and what went in his mind during the process. His attention to detail is outstanding. Needless to mention his art of storytelling, his comments and candor. That's Not all he is a Complete Genius with terrific skills in photoshop. If I look at his pictures i always get the same feeling: it looks like I'm really there and see what he sees. He's one of the few people I trust blindly. It's been an honor for me to be one of his friends on flickr. There is a lot of good and inspiring photographers on flickrland and to me he is definitely one of them. He loves and cares about what he does and this shows in his outstanding work. I am highly impressed and hope to be as good as he is someday!" a photographer with great vision his caring and compassion comes through loud and clear...here is wishing you joy and happiness and beautiful vistas to capture. I look forward to many years of viewing his photos." But the thing that makes having A as a contact/friend ,a real delight is his approachability, support and generosity of spirit. A man with his talent and following ,taking the time he does to look through and comment on the amateurish images I churn out ...while never even once making me feel.....”, the amateur’. THANK u A!
