Cooling my heels...

The other day, thanks to the pre-monsoon showers, Shrik and I felt that primal urge that neanderthals probably felt whenever there were pre-monsoon showers, to go to Mulshi and sit around, doing nothing. So, we went. I lugged my camera along, too, and took off a few snaps of the, um, brown water and the brown earth, and the slightly-brown-tinged blue skies. I guess it would take a while before the area becomes green and irritates Anurag, who prefers different shades of different colours in the scenery. After taking a few snaps last monsoon of green trees not standing out against the green grass and the green moss, I agree with him. Not that I have anything against greenpeace or any of the environmental activists, but too much of green, though easy on the eye, is tough to photograph well. Anyways, there you are.

Canon EOS 66
Film: Kodak Max 400
Lens: Canon 28-80mm

And what was Shrik doing when I was taking pictures? Believe it or not - this.

What I love about this shot is that the dash of blue is perfect and draws the eyes out away from the center. The angle is confusing, and causes discomfort to the viewer, making this an enigmatic composition.

There, a serious evaluation of a harmless shot, when all that needed to be said was "terrific shot, me like".

Haven't you cooled your heals enough and isn't it time to post more pictures, old fruit?

And before you come after me with a howitzer for typing it h-e-a-l-s, let me say this: who cares, old fruit?

I'm curious about whether Shrik used a portable battery powered iron or did he use one of those good old coal-heated iron for his event
