Nice attempt to cover street life, but there is a slight motion blur in majority of them (Shaky hands). Besides, not enough lights was shown to the lens, hence dull pictures. What camera are you using btw?

Cos that was a Camera Phone. That's all I could hold on to in that horrible environment.

Tirtho, I always wanted to ask this to you. Do you always carry a regular camera with you all the time (leave aside the last set of camera photos)? I mean, its a little bewildering that you keep snapping away to glory all the time! Beparta ki?

I always carry my Camera with me alongwith my toothbrush, inners, shirt, trousers, shaving kit, sewing kit, nailcutter, lip balm, comb, shampoo, laptop, datacard, 80 GB hdd, credit cards, chequebook all in the small trolley bag in the picture.

For 10 Years I did not practically travel anywhere out of Kolkata and NOW, I'm travelling 10 days in a month.

Now I also have a Cybershot camera for spy pictures.

Hey I see a board which reads "Congested Area Ahead". Interesting man, is it common over there? I dont remember seeing such boards anywhere here. May be they need to put in all cross and junctions of Bangalore. Lol.

Yes, traffic is better, because of newer cars. Its only the taxis, buses, T-407 and autos that create problems. There has been an increase in vehicle registered as CG, JH as many are purchasing from other states to reduce road tax outgo.

Also many KA and AP registered cars are visible now (maybe due to rescission)
