To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

And do check out my How-To and Birding pages as well.

Day 273 - Cooking Again!

If you're tired of seeing my food photographs, well, I should assure you that there aren't too many more to come.  ;-)  I have decided to finish my cooking classes for the season by March 31, after which I shall completely immerse myself in the Great Outdoors!  I might still teach an odd cooking class if there is a request, but I'm pretty much decided that it has to end with the beginning of Spring.

This weekend class's menu includes another chicken recipe - Chicken Jhalfraezi.  You will encounter quite a few variations in spelling of "Jhalfraezi", but if cooked properly, regardless of how you spell it, it tastes pretty good.

This dish is cooked with a lot of tomatoes, green peppers and onions, and not as many spices as some other recipes, but you could make this really hot and tangy by adding lots of green chillies and vinegar.

And with this, I've just been warned by Google that I've run out of storage!!  If you don't see me around for the next little while, you'll know that I'm trying to figure out storage solutions yet again.  


  1. You running out of storage is such a bummer. I eagerly wait everyday to read your blog - hope you figure this out quickly.

    Your chicken looks yummy.

  2. my oh my!!!! I might be the next one to be warned. now, I am freaking the way, the food above really looks yummy and healthy!!! you're making me hungry!! urggh...LOL

  3. That looks good! You have a pro flickr account, so you could use that to host the photos. I used to have a flickr and done that before.

  4. @Swati: Thanks a lot! Like I've said before - you're a real sweetheart! I'm so blessed to have a friend who encourages and supports me as I take little steps towards realizing my dreams.

  5. @Noreen: Sorry, didn't mean to make you hungry! :=P But you're welcome to come over and try my Indian cooking any time! If you're ever in Montreal, let me know!

  6. @Cathy: Thanks a million for the tip! It's going to be a while before I can sort out the storage problem, but meanwhile I'm doing exactly as you said - uploading to Flickr. I just copied the HTML over to my blog and voilà! It did the trick!
