Northeast India: An alluring muse for photographers

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

August 19 holds a special place in the heart of photographers as this day marks the celebration of photography. The day is celebrated around the globe as World Photography Day and encourages people to express themselves through the art form.

There is a photographer hidden in each one of us. However, not all invest their time and creativity to capture moments. Enriching the creativity gives rise to different genres of photography. It can be landscapes, portraits, products, food, events, night, etc and so on and forth.

Each of these genres of photography requires its own set of specifications. Be it background, locations, dress forms, etc, every photo needs its own clearly defined environment, ones which are starkly different from the other. And as proud as it makes one feel, the states of Northeast India never fail to surprise us. Be it urban city life or the foggy hills and mountains, be it the romantic riverside or the café’s and thematic restaurants, Northeastern states provide us with everything we need. The states are always shot ready making us wonder if they were actually posed to the photographers’ perfection.

With this let us look into a few of the prominent locations which clearly hits home the statement of being a photographer’s paradise. Disclaimer: No way are we saying that these are the only picturesque locations to shoot in those states. These are just windows to the actual beauty that resides in the eyes of any beholder.

The reason why I had started loving Tunnels more is because of these lines from the novel "Perks of being a Wallflower" – by Stephen Chbosky . . . . "There's something about that tunnel that leads to downtown. It's glorious at night. Just glorious. You start on one side of the mountain, and it's dark, and the radio is loud. As you enter the tunnel, the wind gets sucked away, and you squint from the lights overhead. When you adjust to the lights, you can see the other side in the distance just as the sound of the radio fades to nothing because the waves just can't reach. Then, you're in the middle of the tunnel, and everything becomes a calm dream. As you see the opening get closer, you just can't get there fast enough. And finally, just when you think you'll never get there, you see the opening right in front of you. And the radio comes back even louder than you remember it. And the wind is waiting. And you fly out of the tunnel onto the bridge. And there it is. The city. A million lights and buildings and everything seems as exciting as the first time you saw it. It really is a grand entrance." . . . . #khaopioghumo #sikkimindia #tunnelvision #tunnelview #travelblogger #youtuber #travelporn #vacationmode #photooftheday #instadaily #nature #wamderlust #perksofbeingawallflower #infinity #tunnelphotography #sikkimtravel #sikkimphotography #westsikkim #explorer #holiday #placestovisit #tripper #traveler #traveltheworld #traveladdict #bikersoul #royalenfield #madelikeagun #girlswhotravel #travelrealindia
