The Seasons



The Seasons
Taken at a view point half-way up Mount Washington Auto Road in New Hampshire.

Mount Washington is the highest peak in Northeastern United States and on a clear day provides a view of the Boston City (~100 miles south) and the sunrise in the Atlantic is supposed to be an amazing view (though we couldn't see it!). This place also holds the record for the highest gust wind recorded on the earth's surface - at 231 mph (372 km/h) on the afternoon of April 12, 1934. But on a any given day, you can feel the wind gusting anywhere between 50 - 70 mph.

Given the notoriously erratic and unpredictable the weather up there, we couldn't make it to the top of the summit on that day. It was 15F (-9.5C) at 11AM in the morning and the wind chill making it 5F (-15C)

The photo of the seasons with the snow covered peak on the left side, the fall foliage in the valley and the clear bright sky was shot using a Nikon D50 with the standard Nikkor 18-55 lens.

Photo taken using a Nikon D50 with the standard Nikkor 18-55 lens on a pit stop in the Kangamagus Highway in New Hampshire.

Summer in the City!




This one pulls my heart for my kiddo - She don't know what she is missing... She will never know the fun her parents had; growing up in large breathing spaces, where imagination was the only limit to the kind of games each of us played, never restricted to the balcony or the four walls & TVs and computers and video gaming consoles.... sigh!

Taken at the Crayola Factory on 21st June 2009 using my Canon SD100 POS camera, flash disabled, touched up using Adobe PS.

By the shores of Potomac...




We went on a drive to Washington DC during the last weekend to watch the Cherry Blossoms. The rainy morning worried us a bit, but my late afternoon the skies cleared up. The blossoms were mostly washed out by the rain, but the beautiful sunny weather that followed for the rest of the evening provided a very good photo opportunity for me.

The Pier




Taken on a cold March morning (03/20/09) in Manhattan New York. I had some personal work in the Indian consulate & since I was in the city, we (I & my significant half) decided that we would lunch together. I walked to the dead end of Wall Street while waiting for her to come down the building to see this pier currently used by the ferries from Jersey City.

The Convent Station



The Convent Station of New Jersey Transit (Rail).

This is where we (I & Amiya) drop my significant half in the morning, every day to catch the train to New York City. I had some personal work in the City today and since I knew I would have a lot of time after that, I decided to carry my camera. The weather was pretty colder than expected so, my big planning of photography did not work out, instead, I got a few snaps like this one... more to follow...

Even in times of adversity!

LOL - This is actually an arranged comedy of our guys in the Rental Office. The flowers & leaves are plastic & they just left it below the tree to give a contrasting beauty during a snowfall.

Hurdles!





This photo was taken on Jan 17th 2009 right outside my house. While I clicked the photo, I just wanted to find a constrasting background to highlight the ice formation; but now my mind has worked out a little more symbolism for this photograph -

The path to progressive future and the biggest hurdle to that - the political fraternity, sharp as a knife, enough to kill people, but formed using simple water - if not for the right environment, it is just "nothing" - very similar to our governing fraternity - And the most important, lies down as the hurdle to development instead of facilitating.
