This was captured when i was out with Family and relatives at an outing at Ruppis Resort near Big Banyan Tree, Bangalore off Mysore Road. Did not have a working camera back then and so used my Nokia N8 as a camera all the while at the resort.
For this particular moment i used my Samsung Galaxy S2 so i could capture and upload right away. Macro mode on default camera of S2 did a decent job, took several captures to get it right and by the time i took out my N8 for a clearer and zoomed in version, this Dragonfly flew away.
Took a break from work at office, came out for a while. Clouds had this silver lining with rays of the sun escaping from the sides giving it a CloudBurst effect.
Added visual effects later with Autodesk Pixlr-O-Matic app for Android.
I have heard it is quite difficult to capture water drops with a LED flash since it does not freeze the moment like a Xenon flash does. However I wanted to capture them drops and I almost succeeded, the results were blurred beyond visibility. Used this Android app called Camera ZOOM FX, which allows one to capture instantly (of course there is a slight delay) al least it’s a bit faster than the default CM10 camera.
Here’s what I managed to capture and it did turn out pretty well. It’s similar to a Light Painting technique of photography – the stream of water acting as the light due to the refraction.
There’s a lot one can do with the phone camera, it’s all about having ideas, patience and skills to adapt to any environment. Next photo I’d love to try would be with a Xenon external flash + Android phone camera.
Hoping to capture more..!
Just got lucky with these cloud bursts in the sky during lunch break at office terrace.
The first two photographs are captured with PuddingCamera for Android in Panoramic view 16:9 aspect ratio, with no extra effects.

The visit to dad’s friend’s place had been pending since long, we finally made that possible. Found out that the Orion Mall was just behind the Brigade Gateway. Was very excited to visit the place after about 8 months of meeting a certain someone.. (^_^)
Captured a lot of photographs, however sharing only a few for now:

One of the brightest and hottest days of the month of July it was. The haze or probably the smog made the sun look bigger in the evening.
This CA friend of mine had made a stop to meet his client on our way home, while i sat in the lobby waiting, i spotted a garden and went capturing.
This time it’s all about Leaves & lightning during dusk time. The cover photo reflects the title of this post.
Tried capturing waterdrops (again), this time with the use of props in Macro Mode, like always. The Best of the lot is as follows;
Been a while since i uploaded new captures, i’m back again with some more captures of water drops/splashes.
