...n I am too practical to neglect this simple reality...
As mskiruba asked: am not an expert in using the SW's to edit. It's a mixture of my instincts, idle time and the freedom to explore...though I want to learn & do it appropriately. But I think, the frame should be composed accordingly, if one decides to edit - as it adds to the appeal.

To me each cloud is a celebrity, drawing attention...

I believe: the real estate sector, the non-stop signal lights & the ever so idle traffic will take a while to completely erase such serence existences...

True most of the times, isn't it! God only knows how many I did'nt!
This is a Buddha temple in Theosophical society. The bright spots you see is the sunlight, falling on...and after seeing the actual ouput, felt it was missing something and looked too ordinary. So after editing, got the way I wanted it to look. Many of the things I visualize/ what I desire to see in my world appear like this to me. If there is a time travel machine, which will take us to such an ideal place, I would be the first to enroll for it!
Though it looks like a place where no one exist...
...being in such ambience is like being in a palace to me!

...I always fend against them.
I don't prefer to edit my pictures but there are a few which I have edited. Couple of them are special to me as they were taken and edited in the first week of buying my, Olympus E500. Nothing much different from the reality...except that green stands out well.
Taken in Theosophical society in Besant Nagar, Chennai - where I used to hang out in my earlier days of photography [5 mins from my place]. It's a cool place with nice ambience...watch out for the snakes, crawling around. And it's open for public only on some days of the week.

...while I don't know what lies ahead of me, there is no thought of stopping the pursuit...for it always makes the journey exciting and adventurous.
...am glad that the hours that were spent deciphering the diversified accents in the call center few years back, could'nt kill my attitude for the pursuit...finally got to see "The pursuit of happyness" a very nice movie - reminds a lot about mine [mayb for u too]. All our actions, narrows down to achieving happiness...isn't it?
...and I am still on my pursuit!

I did'nt have to give a second thought to name this...when I picked this to post. Hmm...have you seen a golden eye with eyelid & lashes!
While the poets/ writers, would not be able to resist da temptation to pen their thoughts after a glimpse of this, am better off - juz staring at it.

Seems me and yellow are going to be inseparable for a while...sometimes see a trace of my lykings everywhere...!
Set with high aperture and shutter values...otherwise normally one would end up getting a reflection or a bright sun on the lens. The next couple of shots to be posted, shot along the banks of the river...
Sumit wants me to narrate the difficulties faced while shooting, like I used to say in my older posts. Thats why had started again. In these kinda one's its important not to look into the sun for long, better avoid staring into it. Though it seems dark in the picture, in reality its far more brighter.

...there are so many small things in life that makes each day special!
This place is full of frames, I should say. Along the banks of the river, from the bridge...had been out today for couple of hours and got quite a few good ones!

People make their own choices (me too)...often unpredictable.
This snap was a bit hard to capture, since the lens used were not for close up shots. I was flat on the grass, making sure that I don't miss my yellow! fading light makes it also harder to get a focus on; holding the camera lying flat with head tilted up is quite an yoga itself!
...I prefer to take such shots rather than the normal angles...n these are nothin compared to the sufferings the wild life photographers go through to take some of the shots. Sometimes involves clinging between the branches, standing in water for hours, exposted to cold weather, bugbites...all for that single perfect shot! That's where I want to be...someday.

Smile is what I see in it...n I hope this brings a smile on all your face too!

Remembered reading a research article that plants respond to our emotions and intents. Google for "plants respond to our emotions "...very interesting & big article.
...Lykd da back ground in this, as it luks more lyk a watercolor painting.
Did someone ask me, what the poets in ancient times referred the flowers to...!

...Otherwise it just feels outta place and too alien, be it whatever. But the reality is sometimes we all tend to neglect the simple one's, isn't it? - that's my opinion.
It has been a while since I went out for a long walk. Today evening, was out for couple of hours walking through the grass fields, among the hills & along the river.
This is what a setting sun, can do...lit up the edges of any object it touches, while going down...challenge is the wind, that moves thin plants...shot at around 730PM!
NOTE: Increase your monitor contrast to get a good feel, if yours is less than 75...
