This was taken at the office where I work part time. (Yes, I do have a job, apart from school) A friend at work wanted to know more about my phone, the conversation want something like this. "What's the camera quality like?" She asked me. "I dunno, pretty ok I guess..."
"How many megapixels?"
"Er... 1.3, I think."
"Oh, at least it's not like some phone cameras you get these days, that have point something of a medapixel." She sounded a bit disappointed.
"Yeah, if you want a camera in your phone, at least get a decent one. Or buy a real camera."
"Take a pic, so I can see how good it is." She asked me.
"What, now?" We were in my bosses office, waiting for him.
"Yeah, just snap a quick one of anything" So I just snapped a quick one of anything, and then showed it to her.
"Actually, it's quite good." She said just before my boss came in. And later when I looked at it, it was quite good.

Talk about random...

The Dark Office

I took this on at a TV studio I go to sometimes. Like many places in India, we get a lot of power cuts, and this day was no exception. I was at the far side of the office, facing the door, and the woman is the photo was on her phone, casting a faint light on her face. I only had my mobile phone at the time, so I didn't get the photo I was trying to get. But this one turned out pretty good too. And after a bit (not much) of work in photo shop, it looked a bit better.

Update: I know the quality is pretty bad, I was trying to get as much detail on the face as possible. But I just got a whole lot of grain. Any hints?

Not enough time...

I am very sad to say, that even though I love photography and take as much as I can, I just can't seem to find time to do so (read: school, chores, work). So, I am still continuing this blog, I will still take as many pictures as I can, and post the good (and sometimes not-so-good) ones. It just won't be happening as often.

All I can say is thanks for even taking the time to read this.

The car at the show.

This was taken at a car show in the city this Sunday. After going through all the other cars, I saw that no one was really paying much attention to this one. I had all ready taken this picture, but I wished that it would have gotten a little more attention. At first I thought it was a Fiat 500, but now I am thinking otherwise. Any ideas? I took this picture at an angle, but I can't remember why... Is it better or worse for it? I took this one with the D-SLR.

It's not working!

I don't know why, but for some reason I can't upload any photos. The button just does not work. So, please wait with me. As soon as it starts to work again, I'll post.

Thanks for the patience!

The noise thingy...

This photo was taken on our terrace. My mother likes to hang... I forgot what they're called. But she hangs these thing which make noise when the wind blows. I actually was taking a photo of something else, when I happened to walk right under this particular one. I looked up and, for the first time looked at it from this angle. I then took a quick snap and it turned out pretty OK. I took this one on the D-SLR.

The Dog at the Bird Sanctuary.

This was taken on a trip to a bird sanctuary. I don't know if the the dog was following us, or just going the same way. But it was with us for a few kilometers, and since I did not see any birds around, I just snapped a quick photo of the pup. The thing on the left side of the frame is my Dad's arm. I only noticed it back at home. The two girls a little ahead are some friends who came along with us. And this photo, was taken on my D-SLR.

These, are my shoes. My converse. The photo is a result of boredom. But the method was with maximum focus. I like my shoes, they're my second pair of converse in a row. Though not my second pair of converse. Once again, this photo was taken with my mobile camera. Unfortunately, allot of the time, my camera is safe at home. And therefore, my randomness is badly stunted by the limits of my mobile phone camera.

I hate it...
This, is me... In front of an Apple Cinema Display. Ok, I like technology, and I couldn't resist the temptation. I took it with my Mobile Camera, since that was all I had at the time. And then edited it in photoshop later. If you know the 'rules' of photography, you'll see that I got the composition pretty much off... going by the rule of thirds, at least. Anyway, going by randomness, it's pretty good.

Intro Thingy... (why I started this)

I Like to take photos. And most of it is very random, I see something and then I just shoot it. Very often, the photo does not turn out too well. But occasionally, I get a photo that I think is not too bad. So, Let's see what you all think about that...
