Sriram Janak – Photography


Travel to be in the wilds….with an eye for elephants…Iam in search of self..& sometimes I DO find meaning …” like snow , one has to wash oneself of one’s own self…” explore one’s own end..and I prefer to be an unseen silent observer…..
Nature I believe.. speaks when you are silent ..and is silent when you speak…

  7. Dear Sriram, truly this is one of the best and most stunning photoblogs I have seen. In many ways it is one of my top favourites because your photos are more than just technically skillful masterpieces but with a soul. A story. They come from your heart. I have come by often to check up on you to see if you have posted any new works. I wish you a beautiful day full of blessings. Sharon

  12. Sriram,

    I came here through Sharon at A Leaf in Springtime, one of the most beautiful writers I know. And now I know why she sent me. The photos are of course breathtaking- as so many others have said. But also the words and the composition of the image and words. I also love the diverse sources of your passages. Your blog is as visually arresting as it is thoughtful and inspiring.

    You have a gift. Thank you for sharing it with us.

  32. Just dropping in Sriram, to wish you a peaceful Sunday… Enjoy your week, and I hope all is well with you, thank you for dropping by recently, And I came across a beautiful 50 minute film you may be interested in watching when you have the time, about an amazing Animal Communicator who connects via her thoughts to the wild animals now in shelters who have problems.. For an easy link to the film which is linked in a friends blog you can find it here.. It is well worth the viewing my friend to see the reaction of the Black Leopard near the end and reaction of its keeper… Amazing world we live in…. Here is the WordPress link
    Be well and stay safe
