New photos of pondicherry

These are some of the photos of the ever beautiful Pondicherry.

Please visit my Picasa web album here for more photos of Pondicherry beach

Some illustrated samples below:

Fishermen and their Catamarans.

The other side of the beach that most of us haven't seen. This is a welcome sight from the hustle and bustle of the city (yes, am right. Pondicherry is no more the peaceful and calm city it once used to be).

Children Cooling off.

One of the few stretches of the beach were we can still wet our legs in the sea water. It was really a nice site to see the children playing joyfully in the blue water. What a beautiful way to cool off!

Under the hood of our beloved Port

One of my favorite shots. This is the underside of the port. Notice how blue the sea is??

Another shot of the Port bridge.

Taken from the Port. You people notice the thermocol and the flag tied to it ??

The Blue Sea

Nice blue color. Looks so beautiful.

The fossil tree

And this is taken in the Botanical Garden. This is a fossilized tree that is 23 Million years old.

Shutter Bug

Hmmn .... I got this new digicam and suddenly i am seeing things now differently. For example, my mom gave me plate full of boiled corn and here i am clicking photos of it and experimenting with all the features of the camera till i got the perfect picture. You can see the end result in the picture to the left.

When i was finished with the photo session finally, the corn was all cold and hard. Guess the shutter bug has bitten me. I am now spending my times going through various photography web sites/blogs for tips on better photography.

And another example. I see a couple of black ants on my table. My reaction on a normal day would have been to send them straight to hell with my iron fist. But now, i am finding myself scurrying for the cam to get a nice close up macro shot of them.(which i haven't mastered yet -- have to learn a lot). The ants which were initially frightened as i got the cam close, became calm after a while as they dint see any immediate danger coming from me. And so you see them cool and calm in the picture to your left

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50

Finally -- Got my Digital Camera, a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50. This camera can be classified as a bridge camera, meaning its a bridge between the simple point and shoots and the Digital Single lens-reflex cameras (DSLRs). It exactly looks like a dSLR and for the matter even feels like a dSLR and makes you feel like a professional.

What mdae me go fot it?
  • Impressive Leica lens. You would have to spend a couple of thousand dollars to get a lens of such quality otherwise.
  • Manual zoom and focus rings.
  • Excellent build quality.
  • Easy handling
  • Hot shoe
  • Swivel LCD
  • Good movie mode

You can have a look at the complete review of the camera here.

Official web-page here.

Haven't had much exposure with this cam. I will write more about this camera some time later after doing a test run of her.
