Photography Friend

I have found a photography friend in another brother-in-law! Now we are both madly taking pictures (a bit of an overstatement :P). He has recently acquired a Canon EOS Elan 7e and a 50mm f/1.8 II. I hope he does not regret the decision as I was instrumental in his acquiring the lens and the body (fingers crossed)!

I wonder whether all the great writers wrote under the influence of alcohol :-?



Somehow alcohol brings out the best in me. I seem to be a much better, mellow person after imbibing (yeah, I checked the spelling of the word :P) a couple of drinks ;-). It does make me a bit sentimental too. Recently my bro-in-law offered me a job in his newly formed software company. Although I have fantastic amount of faith in him as a programmer, something held me back. I guess it was mostly inertia, I was sort of well settled in the job that I was doing at the moment. Although I had very good reasons to leave, being bypassed for a raise primarily among them, I loved the colleagues I worked with. One person, Nirmalaya, will forever have a soft corner in my heart, having learned a lot from him. One hell of a unselfish guy. I guess I learned a lot from him.

I seen to have lost the thread :-? Anyway, join I did and I do not regret the decision one bit. I never knew changing jobs was so difficult.

On a different note, have just bought the Canon EF 75-300 III USM lens! The preparations for the holiday are in full swing!
