BMTC Volvo 7400XL Multi Axle as 500D!

A proper frontage and full length shot of BMTC’s latest wonder the Multi-Axle Volvo 7400XL seen at Nagawara running as the Silk Board – Agara – Bellandur – Kadubeesanahalli – Marathahalli – Mahadevapura – KR Puram/Tin Factory – Banaswadi – Kalyan Nagar – Hennur Cross – Nagawara – Hebbala route number 500D or the “IT Route”. The long bus was largely empty as it was not running during rush hour. Note that this is the same bus that was running as the 335E in the previous picture.

And yes, this one is my 100th Fottam! Thank You so Much! 🙂

Wispy White Clouds in a Sky-Blue Sky!

A bank of wispy white clouds, also known as “Cirrocumulus Clouds” seen against the backdrop of a blue sky on a brilliantly bright day. The leaves are from a tree that was hanging around the background. The clouds seem like tiny wisps of cotton balls, and are apparently very, very much high above.

Green and Yellow! Garib Rath AC 3 Tier Coach

A bright green and yellow Air Conditioned 3 Tiered Sleeper Coach of the 12258 Kochuveli – Yeshwantpur Garib Rath Express standing at Banaswadi Railway Station. Garib Rath trains (Green/Yellow), Rajdhanis (Red/Grey), Shatabdis (Grey/Blue) and Durontos (Lime Greenish Design) are the only trains which do not have the boring all-blue livery among Indian Railways trains. These trains are “premium” and are very less in number, usually all-airconditioned.

A Golden Sunset Paints the Sky Gold

The sky appears to be painted with Gold as the Sun sets over the hills, late one evening over the desolate wastelands of North-Eastern Tamil Nadu. The speeding train cut across the landscape, passing under the Golden sky and clouds reflecting the last rays of the dying day…

Colors at The Forum, Koramangala!

Colorful curtain-like strips of cloth hung around the Forum Mall, Koramangala (Adugodi), to celebrate its seventh anniversary in 2011. Seven years! How time flies! (It is eight as of now) I remember being there at The Forum the day it opened and sitting around there till 1 am on New Year’s day of 2005 (There was no curfew those days in Bangalore).
