Journey

Big Brown Eyes, Kolkata


silvia tomarchio photography_kolkata_India_boy in a car.jpg

There was something about those big brown eyes that had me in a trance, for more than just a moment, long before I clicked the shutter, time stood still, he appeared as an unfinished painting, blurred, and everything around him disappeared even sound. A sense of Deja’ vu or was it an image I have already seen locked in my subconscious mind? I was so fixed on his eyes I didn’t notice the driver until I uploaded the image on my laptop, we really do see what we want to see, what captures our soul and delights our heart in the moment.

I love those cars that flood the streets of Kolkata.

After 19 hours of travel time I was a little spaced out, who knows, I only got to spend about 5 hours in Kolkata, the plan was to spend a day at the end of my trip. It’s so easy to get lost in India, going with the flow, moving every few days by train that I nearly ended up in Pakistan! With only a few days left it was easier to get back to Delhi to fly to Kolkata to fly home, I knew I had to catch that flight book or i would have got lost for longer.


Little Sahara, Kangaroo Island, South Australia


Last stop of 8 hours travel to Admirals Arch, and plenty of stops along the way.

Little Sahara, Kangaroo Island, South Australia

It was a big day! But it had to be done.

Climbed all the way up and just sat there, enjoying a view, given the time i decided not to walk any further, always concerned about not driving at Dusk.

There were a group of people have the time of their life surfing the sand and of course always one, “one more go”

It’s about an hour away from Penneshaw, be sure to stop in.

Bring lots of water!!! and of course your camera.

Remarkable Rocks


Remarkable Rocks

Flinders Chase

Kangaroo Island

Took about 2 hours to drive from Penneshaw, taking my time again,

A stop at Flinders Chase Information Centre, Just as well, i didn’t realise that there was a fee to enter the National park, I said that to the lady behind the counter, to which she replied “well obviously you were not looking out for signs!”

I said “that’s right I was too busy looking out for Roos!”

I spent about 2 hours here mostly timing in between small bus loads of people visiting, with a wonderful selection of accents.

At one stage I had to organise a group of young girls to get their photos around performing hand stands, really?!!!! apart from the fact that at that age we think we are immortal, really didn’t want to see anyone fall off the edge!!!

Thought it was kind of funny, they thanked me before they left!

Allowing an American tourist who was annoyed at them, I gestured after you, get your shots in first, also a thank you,  and man who decided to ignore me, camera set up tripod included, oh well he did say sorry!!! lol

Finally i got my shots, gotta be quick around people coming and going and getting a little creative using rocks to hide a few people who liked where they were standing, oh well, I think we all got our shots in the end, a stroll around, not daring to cross the line and did the right thing.

Would have been amazing at sunset, so if you are brave enough to travel at that time, please be careful. I only saw one Roo cross about 100 metres in front of me although lots of road kill and skid marks on the road.

Feeling blessed about my safe journey to and from, in fact for the 3 days I was cruising around.
