Random Snaps I've taken lately...(Will be updated every now n then)

Another beautiful full moon evening (Sep 27 2004)...not all that cloudy and 10x optical + 3.2 digital zoom. Managed some very nice close shots of the moon - if you are ready to overlook the chromatic aberrations due to digital zoom.

It was a beautiful cloudy fullmoon evening in Bloomington (June 01 2004, 10 30 PM); I tried to capture the silver lining (so to speak) rather unsuccesfully, but the following 3 snaps are an improvement over my previous attempt to capture a fullmoon spectacle.

I took these snaps on a really beautiful morning in mid-Jan.

It was 8:30 AM, Jan 12 2004 to be exact. I just woke up to get ready for first day of classes (Spring) when I saw this remarkable spectacle.

I have to admit I could not capture the effect too well, still I think these are nice snaps. The first one gives a rough idea about how it 'felt'.

I took this snaps when Anshul, Raj and I went for dinner to Indianapolis (Nov 1 2003).

Night lights at Indy - made to look funky by the fact my hands are only about 1 % stable compared to a tripod!

Was Anshul drunk? Why is the picture so hazy??

Aaahhh the School of Informatics. This is where I worked in the last year of my graduate studies.

It's a smallish building - a sorority with pink walls transformed into a school where computers hum away (and crash occasionally!).

I took these when I went volunteering as ticket taker in one of the IU football games (umm represented kind of a pseudo reassociation with AID, should I say?).

Cheerleaders are spoken off a lot, but I have to admit these bunch of kids are amazing in some of the stunts (Ok whatever you wanna call it) they do ...

Update (Jan 17 2004): The band is equally good!
