My first outdoor trip with my Sony Alpha A58 was the Dalhousie Trek a month back comprising of six days. During these six days, I explored my camera after initial day of just clicking photos in auto mode and basic program mode i.e. potrait / landscape / sunset mode. Subsequently, I started exploring the program mode and using effects such as Rich, Partial, Painting, Mild, Toy Camera etc., Shutter Priority mode. However, this is not even a fraction of the features that the camera offers. Also the judgement of what mode and effects to use to get the desired click is not that easy and would require investment of time.
Being in manufacturing in a remote town and six days working means it is not possible to attend any workshops, so I realized I would have to tap the online resources available. This post will serve as a repository of good articles that I come across and find helpful.

Its that time of the year when I fast... Over the years it has almost become a routine.. but some how this time feels different. It felt tough in April, but this, this feels unnatural.. something just doesn't feel right...
Between last year, and now what changed..??
Life as I knew it back then, is what has changed...!!
There is no shri, vigi, chutki, chep arnd me to make this fun, easy..
Vo chivde ke packets, vo finger chips;
vo sabudana vade aur chutki ke haath ki aloo tikki...
Aaj bhi vo din chehre pe muskan le aate hai :)
Miss those days, miss the randomness, miss CP gang.. miss NITIE !!

Since then a lot has changed at Anfield. One thing that hasn't and will never change are the fans. The fans who support the team through all the highs and the lows..!
Seeing the downfall the team has been through in last year and a half, and the hope that things are going change with these 2 consecutive wins, first time since April, I am reminded of a very nice article I had read 2 yrs back... Make Us Believe... A fan's plea to the Rafa and the team... to put on the kind of show that would make them believe that the team is capable of winning the coveted 19th title!
At this stage, the only thing I want from the team and Roy is to make us believe once again!! We may not win the league this season, forget that we might not even make it to the top 4 and make the cut for CL.. what we expect is the effort, the commitment, that drive that will make us believe once again, dream once again that LFC will be restored to its former glory, that Anfield will again have the European Nights pretty soon!

The plan for a movie...instead playing cricket for close to 2 hrs, starting way past midnight... then after cricket, going on and actually watching the planned movie (Case 39)...
That basically summarises the last 8 hours... Nice fun night :D
