FUJI XT-4 and Canon FD Lenses

So, I've been toying with the idea of buying a new Fuji lens but I can't make myself do it cause my entire gear is Canon. Firstly, I feel like a traitor; second, it's too much work to build a lens kit for another system. Being the genius that I am (or am not) I… Continue reading FUJI XT-4 and Canon FD Lenses

This is the first post in an upcoming series during the lockdown. Since we are all staying in and trying to interact through social media, we thought this would be a good approach to get some technical conversations started.

എടവണ്ണ. ചാലിയാർ നദിയുടെ തീരത്തു പച്ചപുതച്ചു നിൽക്കുന്ന എടവണ്ണയുടെ ഭംഗി അവിടുത്തെ ആളുകളിലുമുണ്ട്. ഇർഷാദിനെ കാണാൻ വേണ്ടിയാണു ഞാനവിടെ  പോയത്. ഒരു വൈകുന്നേരം മാത്രമേ ചിലവഴിച്ചുള്ളൂവെങ്കിലും, എൻ്റെ ഓർമകളെ പലപ്പോഴും തിരികെ കൊണ്ടുപോകുന്ന ഒരു സ്ഥലമാണത്.

Saturday: October 27th, 2018 So, Ranam releases and I travel stateside on the 26th of October and somebody (not going to name any names) wonders if we should "foster" a dog. I had to put down Figo in 2017 and while I like the idea of a dog, I don't know if I am ready… Continue reading Juliette a.k.a Julie

Another year

Another year. Another anniversary. Every year the feeling gets stronger. The realization that whatever we are today is majorly attributed to you. I continue to navigate life’s maze with the foundations you instilled.  The world changes so much. I stop and wonder how you made it all work. For us as a family.  Holding your… Continue reading Another year
