It is my birthday today and it also marks the beginning of something big and something I have been desiring to do for quite some time now.
I have finally resigned from my IT job and have taken up Photography as a full time career. In my opinion, to excel at something, one needs to focus all the energy and time on it. After evaluating my options for quite some time, I have finally decided to choose my passion over tried, tested and safe desk job. It was a particularly difficult decision for me because I have had a good stint as an R&D engineer so far.
On one hand, the future is beckoning me with a limitless new horizon and yet it feels a little sad because I will be stepping away from the path that gave me so much in the past few years. However, Life is a balance of holding on and letting go. I am sure this is the best birthday gift I have given myself! And I am determined to make something of myself in my chosen career path.
Those who have been following my page keenly may have noticed that the frequency of updates had reduced quite a bit. For sometime now, I have been away from Facebook and other on-line forums. While I never really stopped shooting I did take a break from the life on-line. There is a good reason for that too (More on that later). But I am now excited to announce a strong comeback. There are lots of things in pipeline. Over the next few weeks I will share the details with you all.
Since I started the page in the end of 2010, it has gained over 80,000 followers in less than two years. I am grateful to your support and I could not have gathered the courage to follow my dreams if not for all of you.
Thanks to my family for making the day so special!
