200 000 Celebrity Bites...!!!

Thank you so much for passing by so often. Today your are 200 223 Flickr viewers, 71 057 WordPress viewers, 61 770 Ipernity viewers and many form Facebook to have been visiting my photostreams.

Your precious comments and your kind support are my energy to carry on this work.

I am not the photographer of this picture, it was shot a few decades ago, I was a kid then biting a “Elle” cover magazine with Liz Taylor on it.

It says in French “Liz se fait une beauté à Paris” and “Comment défatiguer votre écolier?” which means in English “Liz comes to prettify herself in Paris” and “How to untire your schoolboy?”

All this is about celebrity bites but for me YOU are the celebrities right now…!!!

Thank you for your words and for reading mine.

Namaste to all of you.

Namaste and Thank you all (140 000 views)


This evening you are 140 012 Flickr viewers and 47 052 Ipernity viewers, I also had 18 780 visitors on my photo-blog on Worpress.
The tradition of having 10 000 more viewers here allows me to upload a picture of me.
This one was shot a few days ago at Hemis Gompa which is a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayan hills of Ladakh.

Thank you again to all of you for your kind comments and mails.
I really appreciate your support even if I can’t answer you as much as I would like because of the very bad internet connection here in Benaras and the many power cuts that we have to go through during summers.

Namaste all the way from Benaras where monsoon has reached tonight..

Namaste everyone,

I am uploading little by little some of my pictures from several websites and this might be the reason why the words might not fit to the right moment in time.

It has become a kind of tradition that each time I have 10 000 more viewers on Flickr I celebrate this with a picture of me.

In fact this is not an easy game for me, I don’t like much making self-portraits and I find very uneasy to allow other photographers to do my portrait.

Anyway this picture was displayed once in order to thank those who kindly took the time to watch my photostream.

It was shot recently by Manish Gupta, mere bhai, in front of Golden Temple located in the city of Amritsar in Punjab (India).
I wrote already many things concerning this place under several pictures of my photostream but each time I come to Amritsar, when I am along the samovar, I truly feel that I have never been so close to Heaven…
