Shoot My City - Nasik: City built along mystic waters

Probably the best way to get around Nasik is to hop on to an auto rickshaw and let the auto (rickshaw) driver take you on a guided-tour around the city. And how do you find one? You don’t need to. They huddle forward enthusiastically and almost demand to let them take you to the hotel, and then appoint your chosen driver for the following days’ ‘sight-seeing’. Auto drivers of this place would try to hard sell their services of ferrying you to all the important tourist spots with a negotiable cover charge. Not a bad option, considering besides the transport, you could get unlimited supply of stories, legends and anecdotes about each stop they take you to

This simplifies the task of taking self-portraits for those wanting to regularly update display pictures. Especially since this was done standing in front of a mirror earlier, so that the image could be seen on the rear LCD as a reflection.

Camera Review: Canon EOS 1D Mark IV

"It’s BIG!”- that’s surely the first reaction it has been getting from everywhere. Well we got out hands on the Canon EOS 1D Mark IV, the latest offering from Canon's DSLR stable.

It is, simply put, ‘how you perceive or view a situation and subjects’. The first thing that one must understand is that the beauty about perspectives is that every individual brings a new angle and their own perspective to life and every situation. But what many might not know is that often, one person can have multiple perspectives.
