Beautiful. I envy you Samurai-san, for staying close to such beauty.
I love the pictures and the place.

Hey Samurai... love the pictures!
All your shots have a very laid back, silent observer kind of feel which is absolutely perfect in this case...
I was impressed with your postprocessing as well... noticed the nice job on the greens....but then i read Rudra's message

So i guess the pics got the best of both worlds!!

great write-up samurai. i always wanted to just get away from everything and go live in some village on a farm.and you are tempting me even more. i'll have to wait till i finish my education and enjoy some nice cars before i can do that though.

I never do any post-processing since I don't know anything about it.

Anyway, the oldman is slowly convincing me to start shooting raw and do pre-processing, or else I will never do justice to the dSLR.

Good to see you are spending quality time with your new toys, aka dslr. Good documentary photography, look forward to you completing the series.

What's stopping you from shooting raw with PS7 at your disposal ? Good post processing is a must in digital photography and shooting raw is the best way to go unless you are after snapshots.

Samurai, good shots .. lucky you that you are in such picturesque environs. Not the concrete jungles splattered with hoardings that we have here. And the remaining trees are being felled here, to make wider roads

Reg using buffalo for tilling, it's about the conditions - only buffalo can do it in such conditions. Oxen will not work.

Just looking at those photographs takes a few points off the ol B.P!!! amazing how relazing and calming nature can be - even in photographs on an automobile forum innovative thread !

I have stayed in villages during most of my childhood days. You just revived those memories for me. I stayed near Mangalore for 3 years (I studied in the erstwhile KREC). I know how beautiful these places are. Every day, we used to walk behind our college gate and we were mesmerised by the greenery there. The beach, which was just opposite to our college was another treat to watch. Those were the days....... Thanks for bringing those memories back.

Heh heh. Now that's a good idea. Wait for a update after a month or so.
Samurai San, an update would be a refreshing break from this chaos in Bangalore.

It could be, but I was attempting a word play. While spelling a non-English word, we can take liberties. Besides, Nutty is pronouced exactly like the Tulu word in question.

I recently checked with my wife's granny, she says the harvesting time is still 40 days away, end of September to be exact. Meanwhile I can still take some photos I guess.

Fantastic stuff Samurai. it's a pity we dont get to see this stuff. With mechanisation it's only going to get worse.

I would be very interested in seeing the hands free contraption (umberella) in use. please post a picture of the same if you have one. thanx.

I promise you will be troubled by the end of September. After going through this, my desire to settle down far away from urban mess is higher than ever.

Time for an update... The harvesting time is still a month away.



This time my son was tagging along, slowly learning to be a village boy.


Another kind of nutty farm... arracknut plantation right next to the above fields.
