The Road turns...

After a lot of thinking and reflecting, I have decided that this blog needs to move.

While I am not unhappy with the service that Blogger provides, I want the independence of having my own site and configuring it to my liking.

Of course, the moving process has just begun, and as usual, run into some technical snags. The posts will be moved soon, but until then, keep an eye on the new photoblog.

For the link happy people, here are the new sites:
http://ramblings.loneroad.info for the blog and
http://sightings.loneroad.info for the photoblog.

Until next time....

Fun with focus


Framed Clouds, originally uploaded by shadowfall.

I've been playing around with the focussing system on my camera (Canon S2 IS for those not in the know) over the past month.

I've also been very lazy in uploading the photos that I have taken. So, killing two birds with one stone, I am uploading another major bunch of photos. Of course, the thing that connects most of them (this picture not included) is that I have tried to see how much I can blur the background and present the subject in sharp relief.

Also, for a change, I have tried to think towards the composition of a shot.
Of course, still learning, so criticism is appreciated :)

Have focussed on a single group while the remaining groups stay blurred.

IMG_1249

Here I was trying to focus on the intial plane, i.e get the complete first line in focus.

IMG_1255

The last one - a bud that has opened a little more than the ones behind it.

All other photos (as usual) are on the photosite.

Enjoy :)
