Closeups of airplanes

These are close-up pictures of parts of an airplane. The body, the nose, the side, the tail and the wings of an aircraft.

This is a close up view of an aeroplane from the one end. It was taken from the back airstair or aircraft boarding staircase. A part of the wing is visible, as are the oval windows that become smaller and smaller as they go off into the distance.
body of aircraft with wing

This is the nose of an airplane with the two dark windows which look more like dark glasses. Behind this is where the pilots sit.

Another view of the sleek body of an aircraft from the nose in the foreground. The small oval windows can be seen on one side.

A glimpse of the front wheels of an aircraft alongwith the nose.
airplane nose and front wheels

This image is a photograph of the television screen on the front seat as we were landing. The front wheel of the airplane can be seen as it nearing land. Some aircraft have a camera underneath the body of the plan which captures the landing and the wheels touching down. And some show the tape to the passengers.

The tail of the aircraft and the small wing like structure at the back.

This is a picture of an aircraft's wing from a window when it is flying. As it is about to land you can see the changes happen in the structure of the wing. The flaps seem to be opening.

This picture was shot from the aircraft window as the plane was landing. You can see the parts of the machinery underneath the wing exposed. These flaps usually open up when the plane is landing to reduce the speed of the aircraft.

Another shot of an aircraft wing flying among the clouds.

The image is a long shot. A large part of the plane wing forms the bottom of the image and gives it a dramatic touch. It was shot at  Bangkok airport and the wing flaps are closed.

National Monument of Malaysia

The National Monument of Malaysia, located in Kuala Lumpur, commemorates those who died in Malaysia's struggle for freedom, for example during the Japanese occupation during World War II.
This is one of the places that tourists are taken to for sight-seeing. It is not anything great, just another place to see.

A pretty fountain and the back of the sculpture.
national monument sculpture from the back

What makes it interesting is that it the world's "tallest bronze freestanding sculpture grouping". This sculpture is of some fallen soldiers and also others with guns and some standing holding the national flag as in a victory position. The soldiers don't appear to be Malaysian, but  British.

Snow and Ice on Mountains

These are close ups of the picturesque Ladakh mountains with snow and ice. The contrasting colours in these scenes make them a real treat for the eye.
In this picture you can see large boulders. In between them is a frozen stream. In the background is a mountain with melting snow and a deep blue sky. The different colors in this photo range from a deep blue to white. There is also the translucent colour of the frozen waters against the steel gray of the boulders and darker hues of the gravel on the mountains.

Here is the melting snow coming down like streams down the crevices of a mountain top.

Tramps on the streets of Italy

These are photographs of poor men on the pavements in Italian cities. They were not women tramps that one could see, unlike in India which has both men and women on the streets and ofcourse many more of them!

This tramp was lying on a fancy pavement in Bologna, Italy. His posture and the way his belongings are lying around him makes one feel that he could be a drunk although the can next to him is a soft drink can.

This tramp certainly looks as if he is very poor. He is eating of a piece of paper. There was also a wild look in his eyes.

This is a closer look at the blue-eyed tramp. He looks very old, probably nearing the age of 80.

Fancy tanning machine!

Not like the usual tanning beds which look like coffins or cubicles, these look more like MRI machines. They were seen at an exhibition in Florence, Italy.
A view from the side of the tanning machine with a man's head visible.

A view from the front of the tanning machine. Looks pretty wierd, like out of a futuristic movie.

Photos of trucks

These are pictures of trucks, either on the highway, the ghat or the road. Trucks parked, trucks on the road.  They usually block the complete road, and do not bother to follow directions to keep to the left. Buses also behave in a similar manner as can be seen from the photo. Motorists have a tough time, as overtaking these huge vehicles can become difficult. 
These are not modern trucks, but old models which are frequently seen in developing countries.

trucks blocking the expressway

Trucks carry huge loads on narrow roads, including dangerous stuff like gas and large things which could roll off and cause accidents!

heavy trucks on highway

A high contrast photo of trucks lined up at a petrol station. The petrol pump is lighted up for some reason making it a pretty picture.

This is a picture of trucks with a painted effect. A graphic.
