Harsha, Priya and I had planned for a 60km+ cycle ride on this particular Saturday. It was really long since we went cycling together. So as usual, Harsha chalked out a plan and made the route as well. In addition to cycle ride, we also had planned a shopping stop at Decathlon , a new sports related wholesale outlet, on Sarjapur road. Harsha had made a list of items to be bought at Decathlon. We were to leave at 6am in the morning from Harsha's home and take Bannerugatta-Jigani-Chandapura-Dommasandra(on Sarjapur road) and then back to BTM layout. We anyway got late and left at 6.45. With the stops for break fast and tea, by the time we reached Decathlon, it was 11am.

This is the continuation of the earlier post where I had recollected the funny thoughts which used to crisscross my mind as a kid. While going through the earlier post, it occurred to my mind that I had forgotten to mention one more interesting thought. It was about "dairy/diary". Now, when these words are pronounced, they do sound same. Don't they? DD used to air a serial called "Raju's diaries" or someones diaries. I was expecting this Raju kid to be owning or working at a milk dairy! Every timeI watched it, I used wonder what is the relation between the title and the actual story in the serial. I watched all the episodes of it without fail to find out if anything related to dairy would be shown in the new episode!

Sudhi had given his new D300 to me. Yes! The brand new D300, in my hands! The reason why I have taken extra care to put all these punctuation marks is, lot of people gave me a surprised look at this. Now, where would generally any person aspiring to be a photographer would try his new camera in Bangalore? Yes, in Lalbhag. oh.. what? Did you just say Cubbon Park? May be. Now, I wanted to shoot pictures and so I went to Lalbhag on this early morning, instead of my usual jog. Now, I hardly knew to change any settings on this camera. I tried calling him up, but that nocturnal wouldn't care to wake up and answer me. So, I tried in all possible ways, and some how figured out how to change few settings like, ISO, exposure, white balance, aperture etcetera. Those who would have used other DSLRs , would be at ease with this. Then, there I was, shooting pictures of all the things I saw. The trees, the violet flowers on the green lawn, yellow flowers in blue sky backdrop. I am not posting them here, due to earlier said rules.
Some how I had managed to change the white balance to sunlight, also managed to increase the warmth, and result was that all the pictures I shot appeared reddish, as though shot on planet Mars, just as shown in Star Trek kind of Hollywood movies. I saw this nice morning light falling on few of the people sitting on benches and tried to capture it. So, there it is.
I am not sure if I was supposed to tell a fictional story about this picture. What I just narrated is the real one. I tag the below 6 people:
Lets see now what stories they would come up with and hope that one fine day, I would be tagged again!

Recently I started cycling to work 2-3 days per week. First day I went in jeans and normal T and I was stinking the whole day! So decided to change my attire. From next day started going in cycling shorts and jersey. After few days, Harsha made plans to run at Lalbhag, once or twice a week and asked me to join. I wanted to train for the Duathlon as well, and obliged to him. He would come by car, I would cycle to Lalbhag, lock my bike to the gate and then go for run around the lake. Run 2 or 3 rounds, and then cycle on to office.
