Guitar Post - Melody 1

Don't expect too much from this video, I am just learning. It's a melody from a Hindi movie. The song is called "Tujhe dekha to yeh jaana sanam".

My purpose in posting these (yes, I will post more) is not to torture my audience but to create a reference point, you know like "before" and "after"... because I AM learning and I WILL get better.

Photo Challenge 2010

Not an official challenge, just me challenging myself. And I should start by quoting that "If you have never failed, you have not challenged yourself." Yeah, as you can guess I could not meet the challenge.

My colleague Derek had taken 2200 photos in his 4-day visit to a car show. I wanted to match that number in my 4 weeks of India. But try as I might, I could do only 1600-odd photos in that time. But I am happy with that outcome and also, with that experience behind me, I know now how to take 2200 photos in that time or less. :-)

It would be bad to talk about photos so much and not give a couple of examples, so here are a couple of unedited (except resizing) photos from my trip. More later.

Click on them for a proper view esp. the last panorama.

I am back

So I am back from India. It was a good trip, longest I have had in a while- 4 whole weeks! But it was all fun.

Most importantly, I am free to write about the one topic that I had been keeping for surprise for my India trip - my guitar! I have been learning guitar for last few months and didn't want my kids to know that from my blog before they saw it in my hand.

That was done, and they were duly shocked and now I can continue to share my guitar-learning related experiences here, as and when.

More later...

Photo editing

I made this blurred-background image myself in GIMP. After all, a really good photographer knows how to create great photographs even after the shutter release has been pressed. So, I am learning. :-) 

Btw, this was my first time doing anything in GIMP and I have to admit, it wasn't hard to do this. Before this I have always used Photoshop.
