Higher shutter. higher iso ratings. that is if your cam is an SLR If your cam is not an Slr, move to the action mode. Using flash will bounce light off your windscreen.

aah, my travel experiences with the Civic is similar to that of a truck driver - solo drives to Mangalore and back. I think it will remain like that for a few more months atleast.

Meanwhile, I have deleloped quite a bit of interest in amateur photography. Here is a sample of my "work" - all photos taken at my in-laws' ancestral property near Mangalore.

I know many will be confused, but just to clear up - I'm the one on the left and the cow is on the right.

So - am I good enough to quit everything else and pursue a career in photography?

Welcome back. And still the CAT is not out of the bag. I'm waiting. And waiting.
Nice photos. I can understand your sudden interest in photography.

So let's try to time a trip. I'm going to Udupi sometime Mid-Oct. What about you?

Seems like you not have a DSLR. Is it?

That region is a treat to eyes during October, the rains would have subsided, the paddy fields would be lush green. I just love that atmosphere. But I am skeptical about the road conditions there.

Hey all, my monthly mileage has come down from an average of 1,500 km per month to just 300 km per month after the baby. I hope the little guy grows up soon.

Meanwhile, I'm preparing him for our future driving holidays - here is a snap of him driving a Chevrolet Corvette at 190 km/hr.

The next update on this thread will probably be after a couple of years.

Thanks Ampere for sharing this link.

Wonderfully written, humorous posts smartcat. If time permits please continue penning down, indeed writing is a good hobby and it is not everyone's cup of tea. Or am I missing some other threads?

Had a very hearty laugh reading. Monday morning blues you see, people around me are wondering how can a guy smile on Monday morning.
