The 365-1/4th Day

There, I've come to the end of this project which actually ended quite a while ago. If you've been following this blog, you will know I lost my camera at the end of August, and that derailed my momentum with this photo-a-day project. I tried to keep it going, but I began forgetting to take pictures for days on end after that. I'm quite sad - I thought I could and would see it through.

So here are the last batch of photos taken over the last one month. I am looking out for another project but none as intense as this - I was really seized with it as long as I didn't lose my camera - it made me spend more hours on the computer, more hours up at night, and for a while, I didn't even feel like working on the other blog because I was spending time on this every day. I also took a lot of pictures just for the sake of meeting a deadline - I guess it's time I eased up and learnt some photography now!

One of the nicest hotel rooms I've stayed in!

Home baked goodies from a friend!

Trying some food photography!

Same star, different shot

Cooking in progress!

It's been many days of Rajasthani food at home since my trip last month to Rajasthan - here it's pithore ki kadhi in the making. The cubes above are the pithore, made from besan. More posts here and here

 The pattern on this pressure cooker full of greens and dal reminded me of geographic maps.

I boiled eggs straight out of the refrigerator. An egg cracked and this yolk popped out. Maybe there were two or it shaped itself so. I found it cute.

An evening out

Hard times - vegetables at awful prices

But at the end of the day, something sane, some good advice ... 

A very happy new year to you all!
