Horse cart

I saw this horse cart while I was driving on Roller Coaster Road, in Colorado Springs. I was lucky, I had the camera with me.

Everything is big in Texas...

On our drive back from Dallas, TX we stopped at Amarillo. The restaurant that serves 72 ounce steak (if you can eat in one hour, it's free) was interesting. Everything is big in Texas they say. The record is 8 minutes and 52 seconds ( I didn't want to break that record and make him unhappy. So I didn't try :-)

Snow in Dallas

For this spring break we decided to drive down to Dallas to escape from the cold snow storm here in Colorado springs. The weekend we were there, Dallas experienced snow in March after 20 years. It snowed heavily on Friday night and here is a picture of snow on Saturday afternoon (most of it was melted by then) .

Reflection of the blinds on a picture in my home got my attention yesterday. I don't think it's a great picture from photography point of view. But the angle from which I saw the reflection was interesting. It had the picture frame in one plain, the reflections in another plain and the final photo in a totally different plain.

All about colors

Photography is all about colors. This picture was taken at my daughter's preschool.

Garlic crusher

I wanted to go out and get some landscapes today. But too cold and dull. So walking in my kitchen I noticed the garlic crusher lying around. Thought I would give some morale booster to that little equipment.I liked tone of the steel and the yellow contrast.

Wish they were real...

Wish I had adjusted the white balance better.

Circular Polarizing Filter

I was always amazed by the blue sky and water in photographs. Recently I read about polarizing filters and I decided to get one. I got a Tiffen 52DETP-STP. I was not satisfied with it and I have to show it to Al Spinks tomorrow and see what he thinks. Anyways, I decided to take a few pictures with it. Today evening, I took the picture of the sun. It seems like I used a star filter or may be, it had a lens flare. Here it's.

The pillow

We had got a few pillow covers from India. I think they are cool...

Staring EYES

Yesterday evening, watching the dull sky from my backyard, I noticed the dish antenna on my house. It felt a little creepy looking at the LNBs. Decided to take a picture. When I downloaded, it reminded me of the song from "THE POLICE".
Every breath you take
And every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
I'll be watching you..
