Photo A Day Experiment (PADE) Day2 - Books

Theme for the Day 2 is Books. I have not shot much on this theme, honestly just a very few. So, it was a task for me to take a new photograph for the purpose.

Easiest way out was to shoot my collection of Books with an objective, but then it was too simple to do. I took that pic, however, and learnt correcting Lens Distortion (thanks Kenrock). But, it wasn't satisfying me - it was easy to take, though editing (Photoshop and Picasa) added flavour to it, still.

I wanted to do it with an objective, and then came in my mind 1st lesson of our TruePixer's workshop, Photography is not just an Art, but Fine Art. So, here is the pic...

Photography is not just an Art, but Fine Art
I shot this pic of Old Oxford Dictionary aptly matched with a Brush that I recently bought to clean the mirror of camera, with my LG Optimus mobile-camera, and done a little auto-correction thing. 


It wouldn't be justified if I don't post the first pic I shot. It was done D5000 18-55kit lens, no-flash, corrected for lens-distortion (cant say how good it's been corrected) and then basic editing.
Though it's eBook, the colors those Paperback bring to lives is just unparalleled
Idea was to compose the picture with the real books and eBook. Though, I too now prefer reading on Kindle, collecting (and reading too) real paperbacks is a charm!

  2. Awesome work, you make my entry nervous and run away. I have not edited my pics apart from cropping but I know how much life a little bit of correction/effects can bring. I have so much to learn from you!

  3. Thanks @Juztamom and @Ritu KT :)
    A nicely composed picture always tells the story, editing just adds a flavour or say spice to it :D

Trekking Ghansoli Gawli Dev (Parsik) Hill

It’s been there for geological ages, we have been looking at it for last about 4years and I have been planning to trek it since a long time. Finally, few weeks back, we trekked the Ghansoli Hill.

Ghansoli Hill is located at the eastern boundary of Ghansoli town, behind our office complex at RCP. The hill or better hillock is a part of small range that separates Kalyan and Navi Mumbai towns. A search on Google Map returns with a name Parsik Hill for it, though there is one more rather famous Parsik Hill in Navi Mumbai. We also found a NewsArticle, that talks about NMMC plans to develop Nature Awareness Centre at this hills and calls it Gawli Dev Hill. Here, we would be calling it Ghansoli Hill. I asked my colleague about it and he readily agreed. The very next Sunday we did it with another friend. We weren't aware of the route. All we knew is that a Central Road runs along the western edge of the hill and can be reached through the Vashi-Mhape road. We later found that there’s a Bus…

AshtaVinayaka Yatra with Bisons

(This post has already appeared on Bisons Ride Hard website, to check out click here) Ever since I read Vinni’s post on last year’s Ride of Faith, I have been waiting for this year’s ride. The day I came to know about the Bison’s schedule, I started preparing, until I realized I don’t have leaves. Few days left to the ride, multi-reminders received and I was like, will I be able to make it? Something happened, meetings deferred, jobs got completed and I was able to ask my boss for leaves; and, who can deny you leaves that too for a Ride of Faith, Ride to AshtaVinayaka! I felt blessed that day, and now after the hard ride we had, I know I’m blessed! We are a nation of faith, which plays an immensely large role in our lives, being homely, officially or on the tar. Though Bisons have started riding hard the day they first met at BKC on a fine Sunday evening of July 23, 2011 at BKC; official announcement was made on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chautrthi, Shukla Paksha, Bhadra maas, i.e. Se…

Tata Safari Storme Meet with Anil Kapoor and Indibloggers

It was not just another sunny Weekday, it was a day when we were scheduled to meet and have lunch withnon-other than the JhakkasAnil Kapoor. Well, it all started a few days back at around 11PM when I received this mail from Indiblogger to confirm if I would like to have anExclusive Lunch with Anil KapoorcourtesyTata Storme and 24 – The Show. Not very much into Bollywood, I asked my friends should I go. And, it was like everybody had a single answer,of course. (check out the the blogpost which led me to this meet)

I was picked up at Vashi with another Indiblogger Deepti by Abhinav in a Bus bound to Pune from Dadar. There I met Ira and another guy (probably Varun) and also the other 3 bloggers (Megahna, Nandini and Vaisakhi). A group oftweepleswas also there, who have won some twitter contest. As the journey took its course, I befriended with the Bloggers and few of the tweeples. With the day unfolding we came to know more about the event. We reached Tata’s Pune factory at around 10 AM, a…
