Three Views of the Sydney Bridge

The road to the bridge
Near the bridge
Under the bridge
Okay, still going sans the blah!blah! Here are three views of the Sydney Bridge. Same day, same time as the previous entry. You can exercise the option of climbing the bridge, at a price of 120 Aussie Dollars or, thereabouts.

Till the next time, then!

It's back to colour this time. I took these shots last year, in July, when I had gone to Sydney. Lovely, cool day with nice, blue sky and a few fluffy clouds thrown in for good measure!

I've been back one more time but, I did not take my camera. I should hav. Maybe, I could have got the Opera House in the moonlight. Next time around!

No long blah!blah! from me this time!

This is India - 4. Kas Lake

Old Branches
Tree in the Fog
Trees By The Stream
I am still being lazy. I have lots of photos that I took in HuangShan and, the UK. But, I will take some time to sort them out. Till then, I will put up some older stuff.

Kas Lake is a small lake near a town called Satara, where I lived many years ago. Satara is about 300 km eastward from Bombay. Nice place. Kas is up on a hill, with very pure water. At least it was pure all those years ago. It used to supply water to Satara. I went up there with my sisters and, it was a lovely, misty day. So, here are the pics...

I also discovered that my e-mail on Yahoo had started directing all your fotopage updates to my junk box. I was wondering what the hell was happening. No updates from anyone, or so I thought!! So now, before emptying my junk box, I check for the updates to your pages!

I am in Siem Reap in Cambodia right now. Home to the wonderful Angkor Wat. I'm shooting in black & white this time. So, I am building up a bigger backlog of photos

This Is India - 3. Random Shots From Hospet

These are some old black and white shots that I took in Hospet, in Karnatak in South India many years ago. I used to be bloody lazy when storing my negatives, so a lot of my old negatives got damaged. These shots are prints that I made from those old negatives and, had scanned. A bit grainy but, what the hell!!

Those were the days, my friends. We'd thought they'd never end. We'd sing and dance, forever and a day.

Okay, I have plagiarised. the three sentences above are from an old song from whom? I forget. Was it Petulia Clark or, Dusty Springfield? But, they capture the spirit of both, my engineering and MBA college days.

These shots were taken during my MBA days. We'd hire out rickety van and, go off to different places for a three day car ride. Over the next few months, you'll see more shots from these weekend trips.

There is a dam at Hospet. We stayed at an old goverment bungalow and, went wandering by the waterside. The next day, we went off to a different place...

Anyway, this will be my last entry for a while. I am off to HuangShan for the weekend. When I am back, if I get my visa, I will be off to England and Scotland for a 10 day holiday. I am sure I will lose weight after that, as I will be so poor after the holiday that I won't have the money to buy anmore food!!
Cheers, see ya all later then!!
I'll try to be as regular as possible in keeping up with your posts!

Faces Through The Ages - 12. Back to HangZhou

Morning Exercise
Chinese Boatman
View all 6 photos...
Okay, I am being lazy! I took these snaps on the 26th Septembe, last year at 0630 hrs. You've seen some of the pics from that set earlier.
The B&W picture was taken earlier. All taken at the XiHu or, West Lake. The couple in love were having their pictures taken by a professional photographer and, I happened to chance by. This is one of things in China. Couples about to get married, couples in love, etc etc, often do this. It's a whole day event, which involves at least 5-6 costume/dress changes. The result is an awesome album! Definitely worth the investment.

Hangzhou is nice. Very nice. At least, the West Lake is! For the rest, well it is crowded. But, some of the places provide fantastic photo opps.

The boatman - good looking guy but, the economic revolution in China has passed him by.

The writing on the road was interesting. There was this man writing a poem with water. The water was trickling out of a container that was attached to a long pole.

Finally, the old man in repose, the old couple chatting are people who really know how to start a day well. Unlike the rest of us who grab a quick breakfast and run, because the boss wants a presentation. Who has the better morning? Guess..
