WPC: Oops

One of my biggest Oops moment happened in Bali  this September, when I got up at 5 am the day we were supposed to leave, to do a time lapse shot of the Sunrise. First of all, it was very cloudy and then I had set my camera to Manual Focus (for taking some other picture) and totally forgot about it and kept on taking the pictures one after another. Didn’t bother to check the image anytime. Or may be I did and I was too sleepy to notice that the focus wasn’t right. When I came back and saw the photographs, I cursed myself for being so damn lazy. Never again! May be I will do a different mistake, but will definitely make sure to check the focus from here on.

Reflection

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. – Confucius

WPC: Careful

Taken in Bayon Temple in Cambodia. There were so many of these stones that were stacked in even (or was it odd) numbers so carefully on each other it was amazing how they were standing at all. Apparently, it is based on some local belief.

This was taken in Bali, where we had been to Uluwatu to watch the Kechak Dance. This actor playing the character of Hanuman (from Ramayana) had to play the part where he sets fire to Srilanka. It was done very carefully, that even the closest audience do not get any burns even when the actor has to throw those burning stuff everywhere. See the guy with a broom at the back ? Many such co-actors (or rather singers infact) had to immediately step in and clear the burning embers away from the audience.
