Through the lens of the butt-lazy Shutterbug

Butt-lazy because I don't take the camera out often. And when I do use my Fuji, it's mostly frustation and desperation because its one of those digital SLRs and a bit on the heavy side, so I get camera shake. However......

I won my Fuji in a photography competition, and this is the pic that did it. Since I used an analog auto-focus, I can honestly say it was a bloody lucky shot. Taken in the souvenir store at a fort.



One of my absolute fave pics of mom. There, it is true, the best pics of you come when you aren't posing for them. I forget which camera I took this with.......

at muttrah souq with the fuji. Mom was buying the locket. I need to work on camera shake.


Ok, this was with my Dad's Canon...not my fuji...A close up of a tulip from a bouquet mom got sent for her b'day.
More will come. After Manali and mumbai, definitely......

Oh and also, Yes i was in thakur.
Waiting for my entrance results to be out to decide where i will be studying next.
But i can assure you, education system doesnt get any better once u pass outta school.
Unless u're in amreeka of course.

And yes, we really dont need no education.
Could do with a moral police tho.

these are beautiful and i love the one of your mom! you are absolutely correct. the candid photographs are by far the best ones ever.

keep it hanging around the neck. continue to be inspired. these stories will stay with you forever. every moment in time that you freeze you will be able to recount with amazing detail.

i wish you.
