Long, cold and (usually) dry.
Contrary to what some believe, I haven’t abandoned this blog. Far from it. Life has been busy and the weather’s been (mostly) sucky. I promise to change the one post per month trend though.
In the meantime here’s a shot from my first winter in Melbourne (smaller version on flickr).

nice photograph! I love winters! :D10:55am, 2nd Sep'08
I quite like this pic. The soft, sober color tone of the above pic reminds me of pics taken in the 1980’s like the ones i find in albums at home of my parents time. Hope to see more pics. Keep them rolling. :)6:24pm, 2nd Sep'08
The first photograph reminds me of I Am Legend. It looks like its a screen grab from a movie after which something serious is going happen. The photo has a stunning effect. Did you adjust the color balance?2:06am, 5th Sep'08
Yup, I applied a colour monochrome to the photo, but its not very far from the truth. I’d horribly screwed up the white balance when I shot this, and while correcting the same I found I quite liked this, as Rashmi put it, “soft, sober tone”.
I think it works especially well with the somewhat dilapidated and retro looking buildings surrounded by their more modern yet unspectacular counterparts.2:34am, 5th Sep'08
You are doing way better than I am in updating blogs. Had it not been for the thousand different mails reminding me to renew adityaanand.com I had forgotted that my blog existed. Now that it is a fresh semester and assignments and projects have not yet been handed out, so I have no reason not to update it. Though your webmarks are updated more often if I recall correctly.
Oh I would gladly exchange Melbourne winters for Dubai Summers!9:41pm, 5th Sep'08
