Default Hello Guys...

Hi,

My name is Anirban and I am a Graphic Designer/Programmer by profession. Though not very new to the forum I've been reading the forum from time to time to check on few details when I needed something to know. Automobiles have become a passion not by choice but by necessity because of another serious hobby of mine. Which is wildlife photography, Anyway right now I own a Maruti Suzuki Gypsy 413 (Carb.)and a Maruti Suzuki Zen (MPFI). I'd love to own a Land Rover Defender 90 some day. Hope to learn new things from you guys.

Regards,

Anirban.

Welcome aboard, Anirban.
Interesting hobby you have. And what better to go with it than the Gypsy. Do post pictures of your Gypsy, and some from your wildlife adventures.

Enjoy your stay!

Welcome aboard.

A graphic designer and a programmer? Interesting.
Is that your way of saying you work with Flash/AS ?

@ Nitin.

Thanks a lot for the warm welcome. Well yes it's interesting as well as a money sapping hole all together but I guess as it comes with all hobbies you go serious with it and there's no coming back. Here are some new photographs of my Gypsy.

Name:  gypsy.jpg

The last photograph is infact from one of my trips to Corbett National park. We parked the Gypsy on the banks of the river to shoot kingfishers fishing. Though the pics of my Gypsy has already been posted by someone else in the Chandigarh OTR thread. Mine is a Second hand Gypsy so it came with the weird alloys. I was more concentrated on fixing the mechanical's than the looks so still retained them. Planning to switch to steel rims very soon.

Regarding the wildlife photographs. I'm actually awaiting a reply from the mod if it's ok for me to post external links. I wasn't sure if that's allowed so I didn't post them right away.

@ Rehaan.

Thank you too. Well no I'm not into Flash/AS. I work mainly on open source technologies like PHP/MySQL and also work on Photoshop. Thus both into designing and programming at the same time.


Regards,

Anirban.

Hotlinked pictures from external links are not allowed.
You can move them over to Team-BHP using the "Upload file from url" option when uploading pictures.
You are welcome to post 4-5 pictures hosted on Team-BHP and then a link to your external gallery page if you have one.

@ rippergeo

Well yes I like Metallica too. But, I'm more of a Dire Straits person. If my sign in name is what suggested you about Metallica then well it's more of my nomadic nature because of which I keep that sign in name.


Regards,

Anirban.

Welcome NomadVagabond. Lovely pics. Like rippergeo, the same thing flashed through my mind when i read your id. One of Metallica's song , wherever I may roam, has the words Nomad Vagabond hence the question .
Wish you a great time here.

@ ImmortalZ

Thanks for the appreciation. Well all my pics are on the link which I had posted previously. Of all things haha I get to an automotive forum and get stuck to another photography thread. But, yes I'd love to be busy in there. Thanks buddy.
