Google Suggesting Everything is Harmful on Web

Searching google today is returning "this site is harmful" for whatever I search on Google.

Microsoft tag for the blog

Yesterday MS released an app called Tag, which lets you create your own tags which mobile devices with cameras can read. I created one for my blog. Try it. Its super quick and responsive on my Nokia N95 in analyzing the code.

HDR Comparison

Recently, I have been doing bit of HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography or post-processing as you may call it. Normally, I am not very fond of post-processing, am more of a in-camera shot kinda person or mebbe becoz I just can't do photoshop'ing.

Over the Christmas, we did few hikes around the Dublin mountains.

Here are two shots of the same place, first one is in-camera shot:

and here is the HDR processed one:
HDR Track

Which one do you like?

4 Yrs

Its been 4 long years for this blog. I mainly started it to keep in touch with friends, after Princeton. Over the months, years, sometimes I have neglected it, sometimes wrote crap (still), sometimes posted pictures, travel logs, sometimes wrote about work, most recently mobile photo blog etc etc.. It never found a niche, it was never meant too. Its follows me and has a diverse range of interests :).

Just now, it striked me, we need a new makeover for it. I don't like the banner image anymore, its too dark n red n 2006. Hence first n foremost, I want to make a new banner image for it (like very soon), but seeing my Photoshop skills, it might take a little longer, but very soon.

Actually, I wanted to move it over to my own domain or wordpress, where I can tweak it more. Mebbe I'll do it this year, but not sure.
