The Car 31/365

The car, nothing but simply the car ;)


The Red Bus 30/365

This is a perpective of a different kind. This is not ust perspective of vision but the perspective of how we conceive a vision.

For me this is another red toy bus, but for my son this is THE red bus.

Its a wonder the way in which our perspective changes along ...

Up Right 29/365

Thought of making perspectives the theme for the week. It was a rainy day today and evening it was raining like any thing wondered whether the Hurricane sandy hit India or US.

Rain settled by 7 PM but the roads were almost like flooded, I wonder what will happen if ...

Silence Of The Night 28/365

Street at night..

Shot at an empty street at a private ground. My initial idea was to get a bokeh out of the distant lights. But it didn’t worked too well, so got this instead.

Camera : NEX-3, ISO-800, F3.6, 1/15, handheld ...

Fountain Of Light 27/365

Yesterday we went to Mysore to see the palace lights during the dasshera season, it would have been a wonderful sight. Unfortunately we went a bit late. The lights were switched off at 7 PM and we arrived at 7:15PM. So missed the shot, but on the way we ...

On The Streets 26/365

My first attempts at street photography on the busy streets of Commercial street. This shot was taken by setting the focus by reading the focal distance on the lens, with out looking thru the viewfinder. The shot was taken at waist height, the camera was casually hung accros my shoulder

Plane Of Focus 24/365

I will be travelling today to Bangalore and will be having little time to prepare after coming back from work. So thought of having an early post.

Minolta MC Rokkor 58mm F1.4 has a very shallow DoF when wide open. The effects looks good when we need a selective focus ...

Starting off with ...

Sepia 21/365

Was not able to post yesterday, was at my home an no intenet connection. The GPRS connection on my phone is too slow and costly to make the upload and hence the post…

But I do take a shot yesterday and did a bit of post processing and split toning to ...

The Guiding Light 20/365

This time its light of a different kind.

I was on route to my native and hadn’t shot a picture for the day. The reflectors along the MC road seemed very interesting.

These reflectors are very helpful to identify a curve well ahead and are a beautiful sight in the night.

The shot ...

The Core 11/365

The macro shot of the dhalia flower.

It was shot using SEL1855 kit lens. I should have used manual focus on such short distance. The auto focus was confused because of the short distance to focus, since I didn’t had tripod handy I was hesistant to use higher F number.

I had ...

The snaps I took him of today morning didn’t look good while viewed in the computer screen, the focus was not good. So we planned a quick shoot with the mirror idea. Junior co-operated and here is the result. The image looked more effective ...
