Coffee Bean Tan

Coffee Bean TanCoffee Bean Tan

We roast to perfection” reads a promotional brochure at Costa Coffee in Connaught Place, New Delhi. It is barely April but outside the sun insists on repeating the barista’s feat on unsuspecting visitors from cooler parts of the country. I miss Bangalore (hence this picture taken at Lal Bagh during the flower show on Republic Day) and wonder if I will acquire a coffee-bean tan by the time I return next week.

Thanks Kashi!


wow, when did you started this site :-) very cool. Congratulations :-)


Since you are still using the blogger system… you could have migrated (can migrate) your entire blog from the blogspot onto your site provided your image hosting is not on blogger too otherwise u need to update.

The comments stay and u don’t lost them.

I did that.. and then u re-take your blogspot address and add a redirect on that to this location…


Hi Dr. Kishore,

I’ve been on blogger for 3 years. The blog had originally started as a regular text-only” blog. In Oct 2004 I got a camera and started putting pictures occasionally. About a year later, once I got a DSLR, it became a photoblog. The blog has seen 3 different styles of blogging and some 5 odd templates. Now for some reasons I had been yearning to start afresh minus the historical baggage and therefore the new blog.

In fact, I wanted to take the extreme step of deleting the archives altogether and leaving just a redirect to the new address but settled at letting the archives remain.


Congrats, Deepak :)

Came across your blog via Inkspill, and I really like your photoss..will be coming back often !


Thanks Ash!
