A little bit (more) of Photography

Recently I've been spending a lot of time with my camera and I'm absolutely loving it!
Just came back from a 2 weeks vacation from my home town, and my 1GB camera memory is almost full. It was almost like a dream come true taking photographs in Kathmandu. It's such a beautiful place. Everywhere there is scope for photography. From the beautiful flowers in Mom's garden to Buddha's eyes in Swyambhunath templem there isn't any shortage of subjects for a good photo.

This was the first time I walked around the city with a fairly good camera hanging around my neck. I just could not stop clicking! During my stay for 2 weeks in Nepal, I shot around 1000 photos. 30% of those photos are in the trash, 40% are just OK (these will be up in my webpicasa page soon), 20% pretty good, and 10% will make it to my Flickr page - www.prakaz.com. But all of them aren't upload yet.. they will appear in Flickr slowly but certainly.

It would be a real shame if forget to mention my 2 days trip to Tato Paani (meaning hot-water) . It is a place in Nepal which shares border with China... I did step foot into China this time :-). It's a beautiful place. Full of streams, waterfalls and greenery everywhere you look. Really enjoyed taking photographs there too.

Photography has been more frequent since I got my Sony DSC-H2 around 5 months back. There has been lots of activities in my Flickr page too. Thanks to all who take time to view my photostream and post comments.

Here are some of my most interesting photos in Flickr.

Moments of bliss

As a dear friend likes to say - My blog is sleeping. Yes, again :-)

I've on vacation and have been spending some real quality time with my family in Nepal. It's been just great. Playing with my lil' niece keeps me busy all day. With her around, time just flies.

I've also been taking lots of photographs everywhere I go. I've just been going bonkers with my camera! This is the first time I'm taking photos in Nepal with a fairly good camera. So it's been good experimenting with different subjects and taking macro shots in mom's garden. Will be uploading them to my Flickr page in the coming days.

I've tried to keep myself away from the virtual world as much as possible since I know once i'm back in B'lore I will be spending most(almost all) of my time away from real people... So I'm off, getting ready to head to China tomorrow! :-)

Did I forget to mention how much I'm enjoying mom's food and roaming around in the city with friends... hehe
