Most recent work of HDR. Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Most of the other images of the cathedral weren't very good, and with so many tourists its quite hard to get a decent shot. But I like this HDR one most, as it brings out the character of the place much better.

1. Mail-to-Blogger / Shozu (if it suits you)
Mebbe its just me, but until last year, all these corporation which are going bust were making BILLIONS of dollars in profits and now they can't afford a few millions. Who's to blame?

The first method I tried was Shozu. Even thou, its one of best mobile software I found for posting to various ervices together, it didn't really solve my posting problems. I configured blogger but when it posted pictures, it also posted a tiny shozu logo image along with it - which sucks and also the image didn't scale properly, too small. Mebbe there are some settings to solve these 2 issues but I couldn't get it working. Hence shozu was out.
The second method was to use Lifeblog service provided by Nokia. Worse part, it has no settings to post to Blogger.com. Totally useless you might think. There is a work around for it, link: post to blogger, basically you use the flickr settings for lifeblog and configure your blog in flickr and post directly to your blog and flickr also. The reason it turned useless for me was it was also posting the image to flickr and I didn't wanted to post camera images on flickr all the time. If you don't mind that, its pretty good.
Then I tried using Blogger Mobile, it looked good but somehow I couldn't get it working for me. Mebbe becoz of proxy, not sure!!
Finally, I configured my email account on the phone for emails. And setup Mail-to-Blogger under Settings -> Email and you can make a private email account firstname.lastname@example.org and just send the pictures taken from phone to the specified email address with 'Title of post' in the 'Subject line' and if you wanna add info, just write like an email. Hit send and its done. And it also scales the image in decent size.
I have heard/read about N95 but never tried myself. Ok, its not an iPhone, iPhone just kills every other brand out there in the user interface and web browsing exprience. But it lacks a lot of phone features which nokia has mastered over the years, without going into details of it.
Important thing for me, it has a 5MP camera + Wifi (without getting billed for data), which gives me more opportunities to shoot images and post it direcly from the phone or just post from mobile, even thou writting a post is quite a task from phone keyboard, hence I would be posting lot more image going around me.

I am totally overwhelmed by the traffic in Delhi. Even thou' I am not driving, just sitting n watching it makes me tired and bit afraid also. The traffic is just too much all the time and everywhere and worst part, people crossing n passing from any direction they find n not following the laws. One can't blame one person or another for the mess as everyone seems to be doing it, be it either bus drivers, trucks, vans, auto-rickshaws or cars. The best part of the transportation in Delhi seems to be Delhi Metro, a lot of it is still under construction but everything associated with it, works seamlessly. Am already looking forward for next visit, hopefully by then most major routes would be completed.
Old Delhi, ok this one is the extreme case as its the old part of delhi which is already very congested.

There was lots of security around, even army, due to last weeks of bombing in Delhi and other parts of India.

For the second part - Creating Employment, we went to have some dinner n drinks at a Bar and as we arrived, there was vale parking, all good. While returning, the parking lot was empty and we could see our car just 15-20 steps away but we still got the car driven all the way to us by the vale guy (not sure what's it called). It just felt bit off as we cud see the car few meters away but still the vale guy got the car. With cheap labor comes new work opportunities.

We first went to Limerick on the way to Dingle Peninsula, drove around peninsula, back to Dingle, towards Kilkee crossing river, following day to Cliffs of Moher and finally Galway and back to Dublin.
As I have said it in previous posts also, my love for Ireland just keeps growing everytime I visit anything outside Dublin :)
Some highlights of trip, if someone wanna do similar.
- Limerick was great, but it was raining so we cudn't manage to see much but still in between sun n rain patches, we managed to see the castle and church. The best part, food was way cheaper than Dublin and we enjoyed a wonderful cup of coffee and home made scones for less than 12 euros for 3 people.
- Normally, people go to Ring of Kerry. But we decided to go to Dingle Peninsula. The only thing I knew of it was the famous Dolphin called Fungie, which we off-course saw the next day.
- Dingle is just gorgeous, no words can explain it. It was not the best weather, but atleast it was not raining with some sun shining once in a while and we drove all along the peninsula, its probably one of the most beautiful drive in Ireland I have taken. Also lots of prehistoric sites to see, the landscape is out of world :) and also visited the west most point of Ireland, "The Basket Islands", which comprises of 7 islands. We went to the edge of one of the islands and it was soo soo coool. Unmissable.
- We then drove back to Dingle and passed Connor Pass, it was bit overcast by then, so we didn't stop but it looked very tempting to have a walk. But we needed to cross the river by ferry to go across and didn't wanted to take the long road route. So we had to hurry up and we drove to Tarbert and got the ferry to Woodview (see map here for more close up route)
- And drove to a small town of Kilkee.
- Following day, we had nice breakfast in Kilkee, nice sunny day, drove to Cliffs to Moher (second of the many time probably I will visit this spot).
- The last stop was Galway city, which was much much better than I expected. Nice, small town city like feeling. Def. not to miss.
I would be posting the pictures slowly on flickr, Have a look here.
