What I've Been Eating

This blog is about what I've been photographing, but this is just what I've been photographing as well - I'm trying desperately to keep up with the challenge I've set myself, and not faring very well. But here goes!

Now that's a stylised picture of our dining table and the people around it on Dasara day earlier this month!

A podi (powder) that came out right - I imagined this is how it would be made and went ahead after some Internet searching confirmed my suspicions.

A barley salad with green beans, cranberries and almonds that I chewed through two days. There's still a little left over in my fridge.

Flora At Home, Accented

Papaya, with colour accented, finally had some fun with my new Canon SX 210 IS today!

With the macro setting

More accent on the colour! This is the 'bird of paradise'.

Bangle Seller

I haven't seen this cart since I was in college. Maybe even earlier. If I ever saw one of them again, I thought, I would drop whatever I was doing, shake off the inhibition, make an effort and take a picture. I'm glad to say I did. Every time I come home to my parents, I look for this.

I asked him if I could take a picture and he agreed, waiting patiently till I had taken as many as I wanted. He agreed there were fewer carts such as these but that they still existed here and there, and that he came by this area everyday.

I didn't buy any bangles from him but asked him if he would have coffee, but he declined. We thanked each other and went on.

Not So Macro

I hoped that my new camera would automatically take better pictures than my old one. No dice! I need to spend more time with it!
