Predators

Two very distinct creatures each having their own predating spheres and methods. Nature is illusive yet so intriguing. I do have a bit of arachnophobia and being up close and personal with one was my way of getting away from its intrigue. Even though its a common house spider, still the fact that those little beady eyes are watching every movement of me and the lens is a bit unsettling. I wonder what went through in its head, or did it actually suffer from 'humanophobia', and hence was just paralyzed with fear?

I was shooting for Styledrive and saw a row of birds on a high wall fencing. Paying no attention to it, I just assumed they were crows when in fact it turned out to be falcons, about 10 of them just sitting there. I really wanted a close up shot of them but those sneaky birds would fly away as I inched my way in. Out of the many that I could take with my 70-200 this was the most interesting composition wise. Although I wish it was tact sharp :(

Wide Eyed Night

Last night couple of old friends and I went out with our gear to shoot some panoroma shots of the Mumbai skyline. What ensued was frantic attempts to keep the police at bay, making sure bystanders kept the long exposures uninterrupted, reminiscent jib jabs from old times, traumatic yet hilarious memory relaying, intellect driven conversations about anything from death of the Godman to insecurity plagued society constructs, good food and even better company :)

And of course we had to end the night with some juvenile light painting :p

Closing In

My Canon EF 100mm f2.8l Macro IS USM lens is finally here and I couldn't wait to try my hands at it. Here's a few quick experimentals till I get used to it. From whatever little time I spent on it, I can tell its an extremely sharp lens, almost gives my 70-200 a run for its money. I did have a little difficulty with the stability but then with Macro its always a good idea to use a tripod as the slightest of movements can make the image lose its focus. Nevertheless, the Hybrid Image Stabilization does help in this regard.
