WysiWyc – What you see is What you click

Koolakkadan Kuttikrishnan in a playful mood

Posted on

Young Koolakkadan Kuttikrishnan, a growing temple elephant was in his own playful world at the Koodalmanikyam Temple premises recently. I had the opportunity to watch him and be with him and click him as much as I wanted. Aware of what I am doing, he started showing his tricks in a more playful mood.


Cycling options plenty to select – but cost?

Models are plenty for cycling enthusiasts. But, too costly for quality cycles with options.

This is a small piece of beauty, surprisingly still around in front of the Abu Dhab Bus Terminal. With the city growing in tremendous pace, most of the old monuments and creative landmarks are gone and replaced with modern versions. This little beauty is still around and hope it will be there for a long time too.

It was drizzling and I was impressed with Abu Dhabi Buses lined up on a Friday morning to take the passengers to various destinations. They were neat, clean and modern. I understand that now all the inter-city buses have wifi connections as well as catering. What more one need to travel in style and safe. Enjoy using Abu Dhabi Bus.

I love to capture reflections. Especially when it rains. Here in Abu Dhabi, raining is rare and an event to celebrate. Since the time I started taking photography to a serious level, I have tried to capture all the rainy moments I witnessed here in Abu Dhabi. The second photo is one taken when it rained today.
The first one is reflection of a crane at a construction work.

WysiWyc – Daily Passionate Photography Thoughts – Etisalat Tower Building

Posted on Updated on

WysiWyc – Daily Passionate Photography Thoughts – Etisalat Tower Building Abu Dhabi
Every photo clicked is a history. You will never be able to re-create that precious moment. I consider photography as the best tool to promote positive thinking values because you never click an object with a negative output in mind.

Interacting with a professional photographer recently I realized how important it is to explore the possibilities of photography opportunity available around us, when we can. At the same time, exhibit them and explain them without inhibition are two important factors associated with it, which many tend not to do, either out of hesitation, or lack of time, or writing skills. In order to encourage my fellow Passionate Photographers, I am starting a new series of Photography exhibition, through my blog – WysiWyc – Daily Passionate Photography Thoughts.
As most of you know, I click several photos each day. Topics or objects vary infinitely. However, in this series, what I plan to do is to click  one object using different cameras, within a short time difference and present them to you to observe, and discuss, if interest persists. These clicks are taken appropriately within few minutes difference between each other to harvest same environment conditions for each of them. I will also try and provide you maximum information about the object involved in each of them.

The first of the series is Etisalat Tower Building, Abu Dhabi.
Location : Rigga Al Buteen This green glass detailed office tower feature a spherical golf ball like form on the top, which is the same for most of the Etisalat buildings in the UAE. 
Date of Capture : Tuesday, 11-12-2012  Time : 16:18 Location : Abu Dhabi, Airport Road
iPhone 4S (all options – automatic)
ExposureTime – 1/2632 seconds ISOSpeedRatings – 50
Flash – Flash not fired, auto mode 
FocalLength – 4.28 mm
Sony DSC T900 (all options – automatic)
ExposureTime – 1/640 seconds ISOSpeedRatings – 80
Flash – Flash fired, compulsory flash mode, return light not detected
FocalLength – 6.18 mm

Nikon D90 (all options – automatic)
ExposureTime – 1/200 seconds ISOSpeedRatings – 200
Flash – Flash fired, auto mode, return light detected
FocalLength – 18.00 mm

Being the first day of this thought conversion to reality process, I decided or rather acted purely with a passionate photographers mind, keeping all setting on normal mode. However, as we progress, as I gather enough confidence, I will try and play around with all possible options and features of different cameras I get to explore with and share you for your observation and comments. 
Hope you all enjoy joining me in the photography exploration. Share with your friends who are interested in photography.
You are welcome to join Passionate Photographers group on Facebook.
