Long walks, Alu Bhajjis and movies

Had a lazy saturday (samstag, in German). Compared to the past few weeks, no going out anywhere today, so got up late.

Made some filter coffee after quite some time. Aaaah, the aroma of fresh-decoctioned coffee is to be smelled!! After a quick and weird breakfast of broken "Instant Dosa" and "Italian Salsa dip", I settled down to organize my online photos. I have been postponing this as it is some grunt work. i find it hard to decide on what exactly I want - professional-looking albums hosted on a third-party photo album site such as flickr/myphotoalbum? or create a small black canvas around each image with copyright info?

I browsed a few photo-hosting site looking for alternatives to Flickr. Some friends tell me to try Picasa, but somehow there is some element that is missing. Or it may be that I may not be clear of what I want.

Afternoon turned out to be quite sunny, so after looking through my favourite nature sites - indiabirds.com and indianaturewatch.com, I brought out the photographer from within me. Both of us went for a nice stroll through the woods near my place. Although I did not get any good shots of birds, there were a few photos that I liked.















Macro Photography is also a fast becoming a favorite of mine, so I took this photo.



By this time, it had cooled down considerably with a cold wind. After a few purchases to sustain me for Sunday, I decided to go back and make something different to eat for snacks. Crispy, tasty Alu Bhajjis with strong, hot tea!!! Mmmmm, heavenly.

With that, I settled down to watch a movie and lo, finally found the movie I had been wanting to see for quite some time - Godavari. Very nice movie, reminds me of times spent with the Missus. More on that later. See ya.
