Star’s Eye View


Stars as seen from the campfire in Kullu, India. My inability to identify any constellation other than Orion’s belt has been a source of great frustration for me; my brother, Neel, has had greater success. Nevertheless, being able to see the stars – even if I can’t understand them – is a wonderful feeling. In Singapore, due to our residence in a condo, we’re lucky if we see the moon most days. My envy for those living in the countryside or somewhere where the stars can be seen regularly is reaching unparalleled heights.

  1. Remarkable shot! Wow. We 21st century humans don’t look up at the stars nearly often enough, do we?! I love the orange glow on the overhanging leaves and branches, too – presumably from the campfire?


    1. Yes – the orange glow is from the campfire. For most of us 21st century humans I think the problem is not looking up for stars but the stars being visible in the first place – at least for me, usually in the middle of the city. Thank you!
