Silhouette shots

took these two shots a couple of months ago during a picnic. on the camera the photo looked fine, but when i see it on my computer it is looking dark and my friend's silhouette can not be seen clearly.
must be my computer's screen setting i guess since most of my photographs look dark when i check them on my computer.

Feeling crap

just one of those when i am feeling so crappy for no reason.
for passing time and to amuse myself, i googled 'feeling crap' and to my surprise there is a website where people in general post why they are feeling crappy! now how is that supposed to make one feel better? duno.

IPL gets eyeballs online!

though i am not a keen fan and follower of cricket, recent happenings have got me interested. it seems that an anonymous blogger by the name of "IPL Anonymous" is hitting more sixes online than any player in South Africa. the fakeiplplayer blog has attracted it fair share of attention with teams and boards coming out with strong statements against the blog. its popularity is such that the latest post on 24th April has received nearly 1,000 comments!!! rumours are floating around about the real identity of the blogger. what the site has done is made the IPL popular online as well. 

the blog is giving insider scoops and news on happenings on the pitch and off it as well, with a big pinch of satire. opinions are still out on the real identity and motive of the real blogger - it could be fact, it could be fiction, it could be a publicity stunt, it could be career suicide! 

all guesses apart, in my opinion this blog will redefine how the IPL interacts online. my guess is that next season onwards every team will have its own 'insider' that will be appointed officially to provide 'inside team news' to the online hungry public. each team would have its own 'blog' / website where the appointed insider would post all the latest news (albeit filtered news). remember, you read that first here :P

yesterday night nat geo was running a show about the sunderbans while at the same time discovery was running a show about megacities.

it was quite a contrast. my mind though is more fascinated by the jungle than by the city, and i watched the show about the sunderbans. it really was interesting - there are mud crawlers in the sunderbans, a type of fish that can walk on the ground! another interesting thing is that the fishermen in the sunderbans have trained otters to help them catch fish too!

if only we could evolve and develop without destroying nature!

A happy ending to a boring day

getting to work on thursday is the most difficult thing to do, second only to 
getting to work on sunday. anyways, this clip just made me laugh out loud. 
for everyone that is into video games and wrestling, this is really funny. 
the commentary and the execution is 'flawless' (hehahahaha).

Too many experiments

i have been toying around a lot with my camera since i bought it a few months ago.
after some experimentation, i got a clean photo of the moon.
i still think it could be improved a little bit more since this one is not as bright as i would like it to be.
none the less, let the experiments continue !
