Colorfull snaps

Hi friends,

Here are few snaps which I took recently.  

When I see this snap i feel very  optimistic, it makes me happy and en lighted.

White is the symbol of peace. In fact white is the mother of all colors.

This snap might have been a better shot. It reminds me that I have long way to go.

Don't they looks like berries. I was holding this flowers bunch in my hand while taking this shot.

When I see this snap, it gives me hope. The tree has only flowers, no leaves at all.

Look at that ant, it's after the tasty nectar inside the blossoms.

Those flowers are so beautiful, I wish I could zoom further to capture their beauty.

 Look at those flowers, my favorite  pink color. I feel so pleasant.

Please post your comments on these snaps. Any advices or suggestions on my photography are welcome.

My CANON Camera

Since childhood whenever I go for party or if I go out with my friends, I had to borrow Camera from my neighbors. It was so embarrassing for me and I always wanted to have my own camera. I bought a camera for my brother 2 years back, but it was damaged in no time. Since I came to London, I wanted to have my own camera. I wanted to capture all those wonderful moments me and my husband spend together. Apart from this, photography is one of my hobbies. When my husband came to know about it he immediately transferred money to my account and told me to buy one. Aaahhh!!! I started browsing for a good camera. 

After very good research and many considerations, I have decided to go with Canon brand. Canon is known for its great performance and image quality; solid image stabilization; face detection point and shoot cameras. Among wide range of collection it has, I have chosen Canon IXUS 100 IS (Black) digital camera. Its 12.1 mega pixel camera, 3X optical zoom, with image stabilization. The very first time I held it in my hands, I fell in love with it. It's Chota piece with bada Dhamal, very small in size just as much as regular Business card. I would rate my camera 9.2/10.0.

Here are few snaps that I have taken. I shall upload more snaps sooner. I am not a very good photographer, but I am learning it. Once I feel confident, I shall buy SLR in future.  I know it is going to take some time. Please post your comments on these snaps.

London Eye

My Husbands B'day was on 29th March, we visited London eye to spend that evening. Though I was visiting this millennium wheel for the second time, the experience was not any less exciting than what it was when I visited it for the first time. The Ferri's wheel is located on the banks of river Thames. It is one of the most famous attractions in London.

London eye was celebrating its 10th B'day, so my husband and I have planned to visit it. There was a 4D experience before going on ride. It was an awesome experience. It is a short film for about 4 minutes. It has a story of a little girl who is visiting London eye with her father. It is called 4D experience because, when it snowing in that movie you find snow around you, while children playing with bubbles you will find bubbles around you. Wow!! It was amazing. I have seen many 3D films, still the experience was wonderful and the quality of the video is very good. It has to be as govt spent 4 million pounds on it.

The ride of London eye is exactly 30 mins. While we went, it was evening there were lights in the whole city, when we reached the top of the wheel, London looks as if it is wearing a "gown of Lights". The view of Westminster (UK parliament) is just like a "golden brooch" on the gown of lights. In each capsule there were around 15 tourists. As the speed of the wheel is 0.6mph you do not feel much motion in it, but it is always better to carry an image stabilization camera. From the top when you look down you can find London Aquarium on one side and Thames river on the other. At the end of the ride, your capsule will be captured in the camera and you can buy the snap.

The evening that we spent together was memorable; this was the first B'day we spent together after our wedding. We enjoyed it and thanks to London eye for making our evening more special.
