Autumn Leaves

Made the following exposures in the parking lot of the Brandywine falls in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park during the Fall of 2015.

The title of this post reminds me of one of the boards that I saw outside Zoar Lutheran church in Perrysburg, OH, during the Fall of 2013.
It said “Autumn leaves, Jesus doesn’t !”.
Photograph no. 8 in my post Photo-walk in Perrysburg, OH shows the board.

One Fine Morning…

One fine morning I got up and opened the blinds. The spectacle that I saw in the sky held me spell bound. After the initial reverie was broken I rushed for my camera. The masterpiece was already painted by Him in the sky and all I had to do was trip the shutter.

[Update: I did my post-processing in the ProPhoto RGB space and saved the JPEG without first converting to sRGB. The result was a smothering of all the beautiful colors. I have now re-saved the JPEG, this time first converting to sRGB for web rendering. Both the photographs are presented below and the difference is literally night and day. For a nice synopsis on Color Space visit here.

For people who still cannot see the difference try reading this post on your iPhone/iPad or any other mobile/tablet. You will see how the first photograph looks dark and dull whereas the second looks colourful and vibrant]

Merry Christmas – 2015

Although we have been erecting the Christmas tree now for the past three years we have never given any Christmas gift, per se, to Samarth. But this year saw us indulging in gifting our son. For the past week or so there was this plot being built, “Santa is secretly watching you…If you want a gift from him better behave…He is going to call me on Christmas eve and I will tell him whether you were a good boy or not…“, so on and so forth.

Well with gifts from Santa at stake Samarth was in his best behaviour and rightfully earned his gifts. When he was unwrapping the gifts he had a lovely smile on his face. Little did he know that this priceless smile of his is the best Christmas gift for his parents.

Wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
