Abandoned cycle on the same street, as the cost to get it back in running condition is probably more than getting a new one. I had rented my bi-cycle, so maintenance was free, the shop owner was literally laughing at me for actually renting the cycle for a period of 6 months. But, i think it was a good deal thinking of all those punctures that i got fixed free of cost.

Trinity street: I have been witness for this trees change in colour with the change in season. From this grey barren state to a lush green mammoth, the transformation is rapid and when it happens it is a sight to cherish.

I came here with a mission, understanding the people, to get a better vision.
Prejudiced I stood the initial few days, trying to prove I had seen better days.
Now, when the day of return has come near, I stand more confused than clear!

>Beautiful!! The first one is magnificent! The branches of the tree are as bare as the field, which is as bare as the bench…. and the soft tones in black and white and grey make it all the more surreal…. loved it!

>hey shruthi, I had not even noticed that fact. I simply knew that I liked the photo, why I liked it – I never thought. this is one of the main reasons i share my photos, to get such valued added feedback.

>After a long time my browser (opera) opened your blog properly and so are doors of my aesthetic sense!

To be frank I did not like this post much. I don’t like BW photos when image has lot of details. I feel gray scale is effective when image has no details and has a story to tell on a whole. May be for “Abandon cycle” it is ok. For last photo you are talking about change in color with season. But without a single color how can we imagine that man?!
Second image has lot of horizontal and vertical lines and look jagged after resizing. Jagging effect is more because of absence of colors. It is difficult to read most of the letters (text) as color contrast is lost.

I feel you can always take photo in color and then convert if required.

>Paresh: My sincerest thanks to Opera browser for making it easier for you(the best critic this blog has seen) to open my blog.
B&W photos – one cant deny the nostalgia these type of photos evoke, and not surprisingly during this visit of mine to cambridge, I sub-consciously preferred taking b&w photos.
I agree that b&w photos are not effective when there are lot of details, but how can you say that the first photo has many details. yes, the second photo has some artifacts. About the last photo – dont you feel by taking the photo in colour I will be hampering the imagination of the viewer, now, its upto the viewers imaginativeness to fill colours to the grey scale image and enjoy :).
