A Visit to Lucknow-Photoblog

February 18, 2011 By:

One of my friend was getting married in his hometown, Lucknow and I got a chance to visit this city. A photoblog from this visit:

A short but interesting trip. Go and visit Lucknow during family holidays.

About Vas

vasanth gopalakrishnan has written 22 posts at Ghumakkar.

I am Vasanth. I am 32 years old and a resident of Delhi for the past 20 years. I am originally from Chennai. I have been a biker since quite long, almost 10 years now and am a proud rider of a Royal Enfield Bullet Electra 350cc that I befriended 10 years ago. Mind you, I don’t own my bike because if you “own” a bike, you are the master and the bike follows your orders. There is no two way communication in this relation. He is a friend and even has a name-The Messiah. And a friend would never let you down and would always give you the right advises no matter how bad you feel about them. Believe me, in my almost 70,000 km of riding, there have been many instances in which The Messiah lead the way and I simply complied. We have covered quite a few places in the hilly parts of Uttaranchal & Himachal and have had the privilege of riding to Ladakh twice. We have also covered the entire Spiti Valley circuit along with other long distant places like Harsil, Chopta, Chittorgarh etc. Travel's twin sister is photography as they both go hand in hand in experiencing and capturing those fleeting moments as memories for later. I have recently developed a strong liking towards photography and now I ensure that some of the best moments from my rides are captured and shared with the rest of the world. I firmly believe that photos are a good way to inspire people to leave home.

    Dear Vasanth,
    Very interesting pictures. Specially photo no. 3 (Mosque inside Imambara) The blue sky (Neela Aakash) in the background looks great and seems to be a blue curtain in background.

    Thanks.

    Five years in lucknow and I have visited these places just once. I guess proximity sheds the mystery of the visit. Do you know, Tunday Kababi has now opened branches all over the city but I am told that the taste is not as good as the original. Nice photos by the way.
