Old School

After a busy week I’d like nothing better than a nice photo-walk, and this time I’ll be bringing the old family camera along with me. This is one of my first experiments with film since I was ten.
Truthfully I have no idea how well it holds up since I haven’t been in any place which could develop the film, but I know that I have some of my best potential shots on here.
It’s 7:am Himalaya time, and I’m going for a walk.

Photo Challenge: Ladybugs

This weeks photography challenge wasn’t planned as much as it was a sudden fascination with ladybugs. There are hundreds outside my door living around a large leafy plant who’s name escapes me right now.

So here’s to the little guys and gals.

The One Who Grows

Today I read a story about a samurai and a man who cultivated flowers. It reminded me of the spirit and energy we can placed into life other than our own. The Japanese know this very well.
So as a personal celebration for receiving 1,000 views on the New Nomad Photography I want to share a flower which has been growing in our garden in India. Even without much work it holds it’s own spirit and I have tried to capture that even once it is cut.

Photo Challenge: High speed

Wow. It’s been a busy week, but there’s always time to fit in a photo challenge somewhere. 🙂
This weeks challenge is thanks to my friend Preeti, who suggested high speed photography. When I thought of this I thought of super fast shots of milk droplets splashing or shots of super fast objects. Well, we don’t have much in the way of super fast photo equipment, and not much in Bir moves at high speed, except for birds. So birds it is.
I spent a few days trying to catch  birds in flight, particularly the elusive Asian Paradise Fly Catcher. It was tough, but I found a few interesting shots.
My thanks to Preeti for the idea 😉
Enjoy.
