Sinfully Delicious

My dearest readers, I’m extremely sorry for having to post photographs of fruits back to back, but some fruits had been lying in my refrigerator for like infinity, and so it was time to make a Smoothie. Click on the images to enlarge.

If you are tempted and want to make this for yourself, you can catch the recipe here.

The end product was sooooooooooooooooooooooo sinfully delicious that I have no snap to show for it, I slurped it out, directly out of the blender, as soon as it was done.!
Hope you liked the snaps. Let me know. 🙂

Confession

Lately I have been having some fruits. I thought my readers should know!!

These oranges have been in my refrigerator for a week and a half. And no matter how much I resisted, nothing had happened to these and I had to eat them. However, once I cut these open, they not only looked beautiful but also tasted delicious. I might end up buying more oranges now. But I don’t know when and whether I will be eating them at all.

Whenever I see fresh strawberries, I get some for me. It is the only berry I like having raw.

But you must also know that some grapes have been lying in my refrigerator for a very long time now. They were round and very tempting to look at, but not half as much tasty as the elongated ones you have seen before. So I might end up making another smoothie soon, just a warning 😀

Hope you enjoy the snaps. Let me know!! 🙂

Rush

You rummage through a bag of old memories. Tear it, fake it, strain it, test it, come back to it from time to time, but mostly keep losing it by bits and pieces.. fragments so small you hardly notice that you’ve lost them. Then one day, suddenly, someone wants to pay back – may be for the pain you had caused them, or for the indifference you had showered them with, or may be, because they just like to see you suffer. They want to pay it back – with hurt. And out comes a few proofs that those memories that you don’t remember any longer did, in fact, exist.

Random House @ Night

Last night I was out grocery shopping with my friends. After coming back,  while they were busy unloading the car, I grabbed my cam and went on a rampage in their neighborhood. Ah! it’s a bliss to have what you want just when you want it! Now this place is not exactly where I stay, but this is where I spend most of my weekends and some of my week day nights. But I’m sure, my mother and especially, my sister would be scared to see such a spooky desolated place (Well, I’m from Kolkata, India. What else do you expect!!)

The place was dark and so I was taking the images with a very high ISO. Sadly, most of the images turned out to be too grainy to use at all. But I liked this one just for the reason I mentioned above, scaring my family 😀 Also partly because I was tired of posting blue and white snaps.
I couldn’t decide whether that flash of light from the street lamp was a good or bad thing and finally, decided to keep that unchanged. What do you think it does to the snap? – adds something or makes it ugly? I’d love to know. Till then, Keep Rocking!!

What I learnt from this tree…

The tree photographed above taught me a very useful lesson of surviving in a place having snowy winters: watch out for your head (through the day) after you have had a heavy snowfall! Yes, I was struck a couple of times as I stood beneath this tree trying to catch a few snaps of a red fire hydrant by the snow (something which I have always wanted to do). Thankfully, the weather was warm, and the snow was mushy, and since it was late after noon the tree had already let go of most of its burden… I wasn’t that hurt! But could have been serious.. I also learnt to watch out for not only trees, but building and any kind of shade whatsoever. 🙂 Hope you enjoy the snap!

And when the snow starts to melt…

After a snowy blizzardy Friday and Saturday, Sunday was bright and sunny. And when I went around with my cam, I spotted many icicles formed from the melting snow. Most of them were high up from the ground and my 5’3″ frame couldn’t get a decent capture. However, I tried a zoom on this image and this came out pretty good (of course by my standards). The moss on the tree and the bark provide a beautiful texture to this image. And powder blue sky accentuates the white of snow and the green of the moss. I couldn’t believe when I found this one among the photos I had taken that day… Hope you’ll enjoy this image as much as I do.. 🙂

Feb Project :: And then there was snow!!!

Late last Friday and through bits and pieces of Saturday, Lincoln saw a snowstorm (my first) after a very long time. It was all fluffy and white outside but sooo cold… I was staying at a friend’s place and my camera was back at home. I have never missed an object so much in my life ever before. The only good thing (besides the company of dear friends) – finally my dream of constructing a snowman came to reality. But without a point and shoot cam handy and with the blizzard going strong, we had to be satisfied with a few snaps of Mr. Fat with just mobile cameras.
Nonetheless, the next Sunday was warm and sunny and it has been so ever since. I have been able to go out and around a few times with my camera and have been able to capture few good snaps of a snowy Lincoln. That’s why I’m declaring the February project – And then there was snow!!! (Also because without a deadline I’m no good)

This snap was taken at the parking lot of my residence hall. The weather was amazing, no wind, sunny and a little chilly. It was around 4 o’clock in the afternoon and there was only one person there trying to scrape the ice off his car. Yes, he did give me a weird look. 🙂
Hope you like the snap. Till next time then,

Keep Rocking!!
