(ISO 80, f/2.8, Shutter Speed 1/125 sec)
Subbu Sir concentrating on capturing the kids out there at the last mile (well till where civilians can go on the road to LOC). Passion for photography is quite visible and i really appreciate that. Infact i appreciate all those people who do their work with dedication. Whether they are photographers or the BRO (Border Roads Organization) workers, working at some of the highest roads of the world in extreme climate. Cheers to them and everyone who believes in this.

Celebrating Independence Day -15th Aug at 4500Mts at the shores of Pangong Tso. This pic was taken when we started back to Leh on 15th morning after spending the nite in camps at Pangong Tso.

What an Irony !!!

(ISO 100, f/4.0, Shutter Speed 1/400 sec)

Photo taken while coming down from Thiksey Monastery in Leh. One person totally at peace with himself (sleeping) and another seemed to be facing the biggest worry of his life at the same place, same bench, next to each other. What an irony of life !!!!

I Want To Break Free

I want to break free......................break free from standard templates of Blogger. So i am in the process of designing a new template for my Photoblog with some help from templates availaible on net and a design expert :)

But, i am in a fix.........I have two options........
1) I apply the new template on this blog and continue posting here

2) I start a new blog, post some of the best pics of existing one and let that carry on.

In case, i select 2 option, i would continue running this blog but it would be more aligned to its title going forward ( Portrait of life and not experiments with camera as it is now). so a lot of pictures from our daily life would be here. Where as the new blog will have experiments with my camera and artistic type photos.

Lets see, i am still thinking.

I took this pic using my phone camera (2mp) at my balcony in Chennai. Suits the post, isnt it :)

Lansdowne Panorama

My first Panorama shot after a long time. The last one i took was of Matteputty Dam in Munnar. (Click here to see that)

On the last weekend trip to Lansdowne, I took this Panorama photo from Tip-N-Top point. You can see the Western Himalayas in the pic in the background. I took this photo without using tripod. The earlier one (Munnar) was taken using a tripod. The key to any panorama pic is to take shots with 30% of common area between two consecutive shots. You should not move the camera up and down for hoz. panorama, only sideways. Thats why a tripod is necessary. On this trip I totally forgot to bring the tripod:(

I placed the camera on the railing and moved the digicam sideways to capture 5 pics and joined them to create this photograph. Fortunately, the pics came out good enough to create a panorama. To see a bigger version click here.
