Daily Photos 2012
June 6, 2012 - RIP Ray Bradbury (August 22, 1920 – June 5, 2012) - one of my most favorite authors. I feel like I have lost an old friend..
“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there.
It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.”
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

June 4, 2012 - Sunset on Lake Dillon, Colorado
blast from the past ! the photo was lying in RAW( NEF) form unprocessed and unseen all these years. Moving my pictures to google drive is letting me see my own pictures ! an old Nikon D70 shot - the camera is no longer made !
May 28, 2012 - butterflies at the Magic wings butterfly house, at the Museum of life and science, Durham, NC
lots of beautiful butterflies flitting around..some sat on li'l Arjun who was quite amused ! lovely place to shoot. shot with 70-200mm, f 2.8 lens and the D4.
May 27, 2012- shooting birds
such pleasure shooting with the D4 camera, extremely fast, the autofocus is remarkably accurate, esp when focusing on a bird amidst a bunch of leaves...very hot -86F , and humid at the zoo tho, so tired and achy, carrying the heavy D4 and Arjun !
May 17, 2012 - New Mexico light - a blast from the past !
Got myself some 'cloud' storage - 'google drive' for the first time - trying to store all my images including many RAW files ( NEFs) in one place - and I got to see and process images from back in 2007 I had never seen before ! I am going to process some old images and post them about once a week or so from now on, so they see the light of day !!
PS: have you noticed my new menu bar - which went missing due to recent changes at daily photo community - has now been incorporated in the gallery description so one can navigate my site easily ! thanks K !
May 11, 2012 - V and K go parasailing !
we have gone skydiving - the day we got engaged !, gone ziplining in Costa Rica 2yrs back, now it was time for some parasailing ! I have parasailed alone in Phuket, Thailand many yrs back, but 1st time for K !
late uploads of photos due to lack of wireless access ! thanks so much for the comments! i'd try to look up all your shots soon !
Happy Mother's day to all from a first time Mom !!
late edit : For those you asked, Arjun was on the coast, being watched by my parents ! Arjun can't parasail till he reaches 5 yrs of age :) !
May 2, 2012 - Pink !
taken with a iphone, processed with smugmug's awesomize. Can't yet carry a SLR with the baby. Hoping Arjun reaches 8lbs soon, so I can use my baby bjorn carrier and have hands-free for some decent photography with D700 ! till then, the best camera is the one you have on hand - the iphone !
btw, we made it to Arjun's pediatrics appt in time today, unfortunately it wasn't the right day; appt for May 3rd, we reached May 2nd - confused, hassled, sleep-deprived parents !
I have written to Sebastian re daily photos customizations, waiting to hear back !
May 1, 2012 - Hawk in Florida - Red-shoulder hawk ?
posting pictures from Florida trip so every day is not a baby photo ! thanks for the comments on my photos, even though I may not have time to check out your pics or comment on them. My header and menu shows up if I associate with 'the daily post', but not in the new 'daily photos community' - so I might consider a move there soon.
April 30, 2012 - Baby Kane: entry for 'spoof movie poster' contest at dgrin.com inspired by Citizen Kane poster here Li'l Arjun's photo contest debut at 12 days old !! Poster made in record time, about an hour from idea to execution as I saw the contest on the last day ! PS: I guess there've been some changes in daily photo community, unfortunately, my customised header and menu has disappeared :(, so disappointed, had worked so hard on it ! don't know if it is a permanent change, maybe I'll have to switch communities :(
