Myrtle Summers

Myrtle Summers, originally uploaded by SwappyIT.
My first Trip to a beach in My Life, Probably My First outdoor shot from FZ18,
I Loved the Grass, the cold breeze and warm sun.
One of My Candid Shots from early times, Some Might call it too sleezy, others might exclaim ooh, to Me its just a memoire.
 Sea oats are a part of the beach scape here in the Carolinas and make it feel more real

Red Hot Chillies - Lessons Learnt :P

Red Hot Chillies, originally uploaded by SwappyIT.
Mami Sa. Brought home some fresh red Chilli, and I was almost on toes to
start clicking.
50+ Shots and a poor setting gave me abt 4 okeyish shots.

Lessons Learnt: Always check your setting before shoot, and check results on
full crop before you quit :)

Lafangey Parindey :)

Lafangey Parindey :), originally uploaded by SwappyIT.

Shot at approx 5 PM from shastri bridge.
One of the few lucky shots before I gave my Cam for Repair.
On closer Examination, Black Spot can be noticed in Tree Shadow.
Had to Compose this way so that the dust spot does not spoil the shot, and no processing is needed

And It Rained

And It Rained, originally uploaded by SwappyIT.

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when September ends

summer has come and passed
the innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

ring out the bells again
like we did when spring began
wake me up when September ends

Another shot from My First US Trip stock.

I had tons of Junk, but I guess that's how you learn.
Trying to Find some worthy shots from the old Stock

PS: Comments and Critique are very highly appreciated, I am a amateur and any tips would be a boon to me.

Shot On the way back from Charleston, and wandering to find TANGER superstore, It started to rain, and My restless Shutter happy hand started Clicking.

Have learned to restrict the urge, but sometimes It pays to be a new kid with a cam :)
