Golden Gate Bridge & Alcatraz

Those are actually four different seagulls! With Alcatraz island in background.

You think I asked them to pose for me, don't you?! :)

Spring is here!

Last weekend, I was driving in San Jose when I started paying attention to the trees around the road. I realized almost all of them had beautiful white colored flowers blooming on them. If I am not mistaken, these are the plum blossoms. In any case, I thought the view of rows of trees covered with white flowers in 75 degree sunny weather on a beautiful afternoon were more than anything a photographer could ask for.

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words। I am not sure whether it's true for every picture but I'd say there's definitely feelings involved when we look at a picture. Shooting also gives same pleasure, it helps us put our thoughts on a printed piece of paper. Sometimes reminding us of past and bringing back memories, sometimes just making us happy, sad, or striking a thought process in our mind. Ever since I was a kid, I've always enjoyed taking photographs. They fascinated me back then and still do. The journey from a point-and-shoot camera to an SLR has been exciting! It's exactly four years back, today, I got my first SLR camera. Later on, I also got a digital camera so I can practice more of my photography skills without wasting (as I am told often) too much film. Still an amateur photographer, I'm learning how to take better pictures everyday.
