THANK YOU! I LOVE THIS. Will check whatever brain data you're telling me to ... but where shall I check it? Where the original image is stored?

Prateek said...

right click on the image and from the menu select "properties", under the "details" tab you have all kinds of data, let me know what you have under the headings "camera" and "advanced photo".

Why is 'Khan market' one of the tags? Stupid question of course. I know that the picture must have been taken there. I asked because I stayed near Khan Market for 12 years of my childhood.... and NEVER even once saw a monkey there!
Prateek - Which camera do you use? Do you have a favourite white balance setting or do you keep tinkering with it all the time? I hardly play around with the setting because it can all be altered in photoshop later.

Lucky you Pushkaraj, you lived near Khan! Such a lovely area that is. Yes, this was taken in Khan Market, and I haven't seen any other monkeys there either besides this one, once ... never seen her again.

Pushkaraj said...

The definition of 'lovely area' can quite relative! The Khan mkt that I remember is from 1970 to 1981!. I used to stay at Pandara Road then. The mkt was not a happening place then, it was just a sleepy little 'colony market' then. It has drastically changed in all these years. An even more drastic change is in Pandara Market. It was a totally unknown place then and two restaurants, Pindi and Gulati, were merely some metal folding chairs and tables on the road!
Hmmmmm. I feel old....

sacredeastwind said...

Sigh! thank you SO much for this heavy dose of nostalgia. I was craving it.

Even today many of us go to these areas seeking that Delhi that you speak about because the rest of it is changed beyond recognition.

Pandara Road (where a friend live) still retains the charm ... the market, well, yes - folding chairs on road would be muh-huch nicer :)

i'm with you on that. feel old too ...

Pushkaraj said...

My definition of Delhi as I remember it is a city where -
1. Taxis meant yellow and black ambassadors.
2. Shahjahan Road chatwallah was actually a roadside eating joint.
3. The center of Connaught Place was a LAAAARGE lawn.
4. New Delhi rly station had only one entrance.
5. Going to Vasant Vihar meant going somewhere really far.
6. A unique vehicle called phat-phat plied on the roads.
7. Lodi Gardens and Amruta Shergill marg were fascinating mysterious places.
8. Airport was called Palam and was actually outside the city.
9. All five flames of Amar Jawan Jyoti would be lit.
10. One was sure that Mahatma Gandhi's statue would adorn the empty monumnt next to India Gate from next week.
11. You could actually wave to the President when he rode down Rajpath on 26th Jan in a horse-drawn buggy.

Loh-hove those summers of yore ... that's what i remember, the summers, the winters - not so much.

by the way, did you ever have those tiny mango ice lollies ... they used to come in mango shaped plastic pouches? funnily not many people remember that :( ...

having stayed in west delhi all my life, going to GK was like going to another city :)

Prateek said...

all the time i am in delhi, i am either stuck in mayur vihar at my uncle's or i find myself in the metro moving towards the railway station or the airport. :( I so want to see Delhi.

@pushkaraj
when i'm shooting RAW, I don't give a damn about anything but overexposing!:) I dont know if it's the right thing to do but i tend to underexpose by one stop, and adjust later for the desired ( or smtimes undesired :D) result. But when shooting in jpeg one has to be very careful and kinda "plan" the shot in advance. my fav wb setting is "cloudy" but i keep experimenting (read messing up) with other settings.

My d40 is getting old and has started throwing tantrums lately, so i have shifted to my jpeg shooting, cybershot dsc-h9 for the time being. Now if I start comparing what i like and dislike about my cameras then the comment will get longer than the post. :)

sacredeastwind said...

nice one prateek.

personally, whilst taking pictures I'm rash and obsessed with the getting a 'curious' shot, barely ever bothering about tinkering, which is why the ones that come out nice - i call them good accidents :)
