photoblog image 500+Break


Well, it's a pretty poor shot. But it is my 500th and this happens to be the second or third photo I took with my first digital camera so it seemed appropriate. The city is in the background is Mumbai, where I'll be spending the next six weeks. After which I'll be in Italy. Expected date of return = sometime in mid-August. Keep snappin'!

Looks like Bougainvilea, basking in the Mumbai sun...I hope the sun there does not fade you too much, Phot.
Samarth: Thanks Ray.

bougainvillea is my favourite flower - grows everywhere here too in beautiful colours. i really like your image, what does it look like in colour?
Samarth: Thanks Eliza. It's a very pretty pink against a yellowing city backdrop.

I think it is a great picture and well presented, except for the part about it being pretty poor.
Samarth: smile

Congratulations Sam on the 500th. Many start but few survive. It has a delicate vintage feel to it.
Enjoy the trip, I am sure you feel you deserve it after your hard year!
Samarth: Thanks a lot Alistair. It was a good break but am glad to finally get back to photography.
Where in Italy?
Samarth: I went to Rome, Tuscany, and Como.
