Melbourne Winter
Canon EOS 300D | 55.0mm | 1/50s | f/9.0 | ISO 400 | Flash Off EXIF

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).

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. :)

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?

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.

You are doing way better than I am in updating blogs. Had it not been for the thousand different mails reminding me to renew 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!
