[Photo-Blog]~Of a Mare and Multiplicity!!! :)

I’ve been short of words off late. Call it the lack of time, the busy at work or the simply plain-n-lazy – I haven’t been able to write and publish a single post here for like over a month now. So here I am posting two pics, just to feel satisfied that my blog isn’t all that dormant!! πŸ™‚

Pic #1: This shot of a horse mare was clicked at Rameswaram, South Tamil Nadu.

Pic #2: Tried this photography technique called ‘Multiplicity’. It required a lot of patience though, for both the model in Su and the photographer in me!! πŸ˜€

A companion so lovely and a walk to remember…

[Love Call][Photo-blog]~ Caw Caw :)

Standing on the balcony, as I was sipping on my early good morning coffee around 1pm last Sunday…I saw this crow perched on the window slab of the opposite building, calling out “caw caw” loudly.

I didn’t realize it to be the “love call”…and in no time, did another crow (presumably male, by its behavior towards me) come to join its partner (presumably female, cos the other one I reasoned out to be a male πŸ˜› ).

The male was looking at me as if I would run away with his muse…huh…while the female (I was as much tired of its caw-caw, as it must have been “caw-caw-ing”) was whispering something to it.

And suddenly, not bothering about who was watching – THEY DID THIS!! I clicked, and ran inside to instead watch some decent Rakhi Sawant show on TV!! hmm…

NOTE: No Crows nor their sentiments were hurt in the process.

[Pic-Blog]~Once upon a Pirate…Capsicum & Hara Murgh! :)

Sincere apologies for freaking you all out with the photo in the previous post…Rakhi was still ok, but the guy next to her stood and stared like there was no tomorrow…Pls make a note that “It wasn’t me”!! πŸ™‚
This time round, the post has some pleasant tummy and taste-bud tickling pics. πŸ˜€

Over the weekend, had been to this new restaurant called “Once upon a Pirate” on the Bessy beach road…in Chennai.

About the restaurant…in short:
Ambience: 3/5Β Β  Β Decoration: 4/5Β Β  Β Food: 4/5
Quantity: 3/5Β Β  Β Quality: 4/5Β Β  Β Service: 3/5
Price: 3/5 (high for the quantity)

Points to remember:
1) If you are planning to visit the place, have time at your disposal.
2) When you order, say it out loud and clear…
3) The lady waitress who brings the soup and finger bowls is one and the same. See what is being laid down in front of you. If she brings soup bowls for the second time round, be polite and say “It isn’t our order, can we have the rest of the order pls?”
4) The table napkin is to be returned back (I almost escaped with it, unknowingly…ok, I thought err…chalo, chodo!) πŸ™‚

Note: Cognizant Employees were given discount, on informing them prior to Billing! πŸ™‚

HeRe ArE tHe PiCs:

For the starters, we had the Chilli Paneer – The pieces of Green Capsicum were “cornered” in the dish! πŸ™‚

Moving on to the main green dish – This is the Haraa Murgh (Green Chick-en) πŸ˜€ Don’t ask me “Where is the Chicken??” Its dead, cooked and settled at the bottom of the green gravy! πŸ˜›

And it rained…

It rained in Chennai on April 30th evening, much to all our astonishment and relief. I couldn’t enjoy the rain in peace, as I was on my way home – to Bangalore. πŸ˜€

But then I did enjoy getting dirty..some heavy vehicle splashed the water logged on the road while I myself walked into some slush and had some fun (its a different story that there’s wasn’t any other way to get out off there!!) πŸ˜€

Awaiting more rains… πŸ™‚

A ‘cricket’ visited my home as the IPL matches were going on..was it a sign of the ‘rains’ being on the way!! πŸ™‚

Photo Walk @ the Marina Beach, Chennai! :)

I did something for the first time today, and felt good about it. πŸ˜€

“What are you doing here man, at this hour?” I asked my roommate, as he stood right next to where I was sleeping. (psst…I am not afraid of ghost, so wasn’t startled.)
The time was 3:45am today morning.
“Are you coming for a walk? I’m not feeling sleepy” he said as put his shirt on.
“Hell no..I’ve to wake up anyways at 4:30…you carry on” I said and shoo-ed him away.
But then, I just couldn’t get back to sleep. So I got up, took bath and was on my way to the Marina beach – by 5am.

I was going to attend my first photo walk. Armed with my Canon XIUS 80 (it’s a point n shoot…a basic camera…n for an update, recently its LCD display had a cross sectional crack too…) I reached the venue – Gandhi statue at the Marina Beach, Chennai – much earlier than any of the other folks did. For starters, this photo walk by initiated by my company’s photography community. Some of the pics I took, can be found below πŸ™‚

We walked for about 90 mins before the heat (April is hotter and May is hottest in Chennai, rest of the months its hot πŸ˜› ) started taking its toll on us. We reached back to the starting point, onboard a MTC (its a high class local bus, and am not kidding) to collect our parked vehicles. Overall it was fun…do try for sure, if you get a chance anytime! πŸ™‚

This was shot at around 5:45am…when the sun was just about to awake the world this side.

The Gandhi Statue – in close up – with crows sitting (and doing what not) on it!!

The first rays reaching out to us…

The setting up for a close-in shot! πŸ™‚

The boats come back to the shore at sunrise, after a late night or an early morning round of fishing!! πŸ™‚

Listening to music, watching the sun rise…

A group of athletes at their warm-ups…

The patrolling cops on their horses…

This puppy was cute..readily gave poses to our cameras! πŸ™‚

Some of us, walking the talk…in between the shots! πŸ™‚

This was the scene at 8am…it seemed like 12 noon, with the sun almost right above our head and radiating hot waves!

We departed after a round of breakfast…and I was back home by 9 30am! πŸ™‚ Loved the experience! πŸ™‚
