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…

Riders of the Nation of a Billion - Dimensions and Horizons

Incidentally I wrote a post of my tranformation from just around the corner corporate junkie into a Rider (for sure, still gradually) few days ago. Now, here are the Indibloggers with a Contest for the Bikers of the Nation with Castrol guys.


When you look at the scenario of Biking in a general sense, you would be attracted by the road-rowdies and rookies who ride to spread nuisance and are mostly acknowledged for their deeds by the newspaper. Hooligans may be the right word.But, once you get involved with the passion, you would be able to see how the passion of Biking, or rather Riding, is evolving in the country where 2-wheelers over-power 4-wheelers by scores of galactic height, but have never earned respect on highways just coz they are the smallest-speeding machine there! I would try to let you through the Indian Riders tale, so that you  be able to appreciate how the riders of the Country are working, though in a segregative way, to evolve the Bikers’ Code for the Nation of…

An evening in the Chilika Lake

(This post has been published in TheViewspaper as The Paradise called Chilika)

This year seems to be much more happening than I expected. I realized it when I got an invitation from a senior colleague to attend his marriage at Bhubaneshwar. Hidden was another invitation to revisit the Puri-beach and also the Chilika Lake.


I hadn’t still come out of the hangover of my pan-India ride, when the date to fly to the City of Temples knocked at doors. Packing the very morning of departure with least pairs of casuals and 3sets of party wears, I joined Kaustav and Abhimanyu bhaiya on our tour de Chilika and Puri, also the Odiya Wedding.


Chilika Lake is the largest coastal lagoon in India and the second largest in World. It is an essentially shallow brackish water lagoon on the east coast, spread over the districts of Puri, Khurda and Ganjam of Odisa state. The lake, popularly known as Chilka, was designated the first Indian Wetland of International importance under the Ramsar Convention, in 1981. …
