… the past two days have been awesome… both Brazil and Argentina got knocked out of the world cup… almost washed away the pain of seeing England humiliated…

… it’s been weird seeing the team I support win against the odds!

… just saw my friends upload pics of their momo party while i’m here all alone chewing through yesterdays cold hard pizza… life’s so unfair! :P

… it’s 4th of July!!… hope I’ll get to shoot some fireworks…

… classes over so i need to get back to work!… been behind on it already…

… got a lecture to give in two days – a little nervous about that…

… and yeah! Orange Rocks!! :)

… free as a bird… got nothing else to do… and that the World Cup is in two day break isn’t helping much

… done with exams for this semester… had a short 5 weeks class… over!

… maybe I should start reading some books… been almost two years since I read my last one!

… (removed my last post… no jokes! – it wan’t quite ‘me’!)

… been listening to a new bollywood song – “Pee Loon” … just came up with my own version LOL

before:
pee loon tere neele neele nainoon se sabnam
pee loon tere geeley geely hontoon ki sargam
pee loon hai peene ka mausam

after:
pee loon tere yaadoon mein soda aaur rum
pee loon kuch whisky usme coke thoda kum
pee loon aaur bhooloon saare gum

… what else?!… ummmm… ditched England – a bad breakup!… supporting the Orange for now… also Spain, Germany, etc etc… well any team besides Argentina and Brazil!… (but somehow I know it’s not gonna end well for me… gggrrrr!)

Helpless!! – You don’t know,
How lovely you are; and I,
Can’t describe in words.

Preying Eyes

Preying Eyes

Stone eagle resting above the main gates of Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, located on top of Lookout Mountain, TN. The park is on the edge of the mountain and has cliffs on all three sides. The view of Chattanooga downtown from the cliff is – well as you can imagine – breathtaking… but that’s a pic for another day.

And thanks to adebⓞnd for the Lightroom presets, which was the only processing done.

Falling Slowly

Falling Slowly

This is an indoor waterfall in Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville, TN. It was one of the scenic places I visited in my two days vacation. I’ll be posting a lot of images from the vacation in days to come.

This was shot with one second long exposure in aperture priority mode to get the white smooth fall. It was already late in the evening so the hall was quite dark, thus I didn’t have to use my ND filter. This is my first flickr upload that was shot in RAW format. I wasn’t quite sure how to process it, so I played around with hue, saturation and intensity in Lightroom and then added borders and signature in Photoshop. I am mostly satisfied with the final result, except in few places where over exposure of green is evident.
