Backyard Shots- II (Panasonic Lumix - DS4)

Hey All,

Hope everybody's doing great @ blogsvilla. Bought a new digicam last week, the Panasonic Lumix DS4. I had googled a lot to find a review for this particular cam, but only in vain. I will be posting my detailed review in my next posting. Meanwhile have a look at some of the pics taken from my cam.

Please please do drop in your valuable comments about the pictures. Just want to know about the quality of pics and let me know factors to judge the cam so that I can post my review on those parameters.

The mountains, the plains, the valleys, the snow everythings so fantastic.. I made a promise with myself that I will be there very soon..

Backyard shots..!!!

It is at the edge of a petal that love waits.
~ William Carlos Williams

The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.
~Tennessee Williams

A flower's fragrance declares to all the world that it is fertile,
available, and desirable, its sex organs oozing with nectar.
Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force,
all the optimism, expectancy, and passionate bloom of youth.
We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages,
we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire.
~ Diane Ackerman, A Natural History of the Senses, 1990, p. 13

More colors of Sikkim

Gangtok, the beautiful capital city of Sikkim. Unlike other capital cities you won't find traffic, pollution.. rush of buses and trains.. all you will find here is the beauty of nature.. mind blowing colorful buildings.. and greenery all over the mountains.. also, you can get a glimpse of snow in far away mountains and the beautiful Kanchenjunga range.. oww.. I still remember that view.. it was jus awesome..

Colorful buildings; Gangtok

Our tour operator suggested us to visit North Sikkim and visit Lachung (which is app. 9000 ft above sea level) , Katao Valley and the beautiful Yumthang Valley which they call the second Switzerland ( n it truly deserves to be called so.. believe me.. although I have never been to Switzerland.. ;) )

View of Lachung; North Sikkim:

I felt like king of these mountains when I was here in Katao (app . 13000 ft abv sea level)

Can you see the Kanchunzenga range in the backdrop. Place: Katao.

Yes, this is Yumthang, the second Switzerland.. no wonder if you think of getting settled down in such place..

Yes, that's Y for Yak.. remember your nursery book..!!!

So, howwas that..!!!

Colors from Bhutan and Sikkim-1

I wanted to post these photographs long back.. nyhow, lemme take you to some of my favorite and memorable moments of my last trip to Bhutan and Sikkim.. U know watt, I am emotionally attached to this tiny nation.. maybe be'caz.. I spent 5 most memorable years over there.. or maybe.. it was the place where I started my schooling.. yes.. and I am glad I visited Bhutan after 23-24 years later.. I wish I culd have visited my schools @ Chukha(Bhutanese school- I went there for a year.. ) and Tshimalakha( Kendriya Vidyalaya- class 1-3 :)).. I returned back with a promise that I will revisit this lovely country to recollect broken memories of my childhood..

Ahh.. 1 more thing, I forgot to set the correct date, thts y this wrong one came up.. nyhow the actual date was 10/12/2008.

Phuntsholling; This is the entrance to the Royal Kingdom:

No Smoking

Although the government announced a ban on smoking @ public places since last independence day, there seems to be no impact on public about this. We can still see the panwalla's selling gutkhas and cigarettes at every corner of town. Until and unless the government takes steps against these fellows, I don't think this ban will be successful.
What amuses me is that now a days our FM stations are also airing ads of gutkha and pan masala.. An ocassional smoker like me would not resist smoking at any place until some strong steps are taken..

The essence of blogging

I jus loved this post by Divya Uttam.

An excerpt from her blog :

"It's when you are too obvious like a news channel, or you have lots of syndicated posts without your opinions or trying to be similar like some other successful blog. Just like any writing, when you're first starting out you will most likely look at blogs of others for example sake, and whether you know it or not, will emulate them in some form or fashion. After you've begun to blog for a while, however, you'll find your voice starting to creep out and eventually taking over, but, only if you are passionate about what you write."

I do relate myself with the greenhorn you mentioned in your post Divya :).
