hints, allegations and things left unsaid...
Proximity to your subject and ambient light conditions can lead to dramatic pictures that bear no resemblance to their original subject whatsoever; pictures that are wide open to varied interpretations. This is especially true (as I recently discovered) if you happen to be clicking lamp-shades:
The pictures above are not that of a Manhattan skyscraper but that of a fancy wooden cage encasing a light bulb.
The patterns; cast by the light emanating from the wooden shade, on the bushes flanking it on either side might lead you into believing that I clicked glowing wings of some mystic mythical creature. Pictures cannot get any more deceptively untrue than this:
Here is what our subject looked like in reality:
The picture below might remind you of a quaint old haveli
In reality it was just a fancy lampshade made of iron and glass:
I really appreciate the way you presented the illusions. It speaks volumes about your creativity...simply amazing...keep the good work going:-)

Thanks Gutsy, SemanticOverload.
Hi Avis, I use Minolta DIMage XT 3.2 Mega Pixel Camera. Like all digital cameras that are a year old, this too fast headed towards obsoloscence, though I'll definitely recommend it to anyone even today :-)

hey deepak i am a regular visitor to dpreview - its a gr8 dgcam review site ... plan to get myself a Nikon D70 6mp dgslr :) and a couple of nikkor lenses sometime this year.
speaking of old cams, I have had a sony dsc p50 for the last 2 yrs and i would still recommend it to any one on a budget if only it were not out of prodn.
going through the pics you have got here, i found the macros of snowflakes, dew and the spider web most remarkable. and the stone age electric toaster actually looks like one!!
also something very uncanny... at least 5 of the pics i saw on different pages of your blog bear more than a passing resemblance to some of the pics i have clicked over the last two years! the swings, the construction site, the butterflies, orange clouds, the bee on a flower, the parking lot from air!
see www.photo.net for some interesting work by amateurs.
keep clickin! - Avis
