New Beginnings

I must admit, I'm pretty thrilled about today. It just might have slipped by without so much as a whimper, quite like last year, but I suppose not especially since I'm quite so pleased with myself. Thus, despite not wanting to say anything, it is with a rather surprised pleasure that E Vestigio turns three today. :-)

I could tell you about what a wonderful journey it's been and how much I've learned and grown. Which I have and made some wonderful friends too. Truth be told, I know that I'm still here because of a few of you. You know who you are so I'll suffice to say just that much only. And I must say, I *think* that my relationship with this blog isn't ambivalent anymore. But that's not what I wanted to say. No, no, not at all.

I wanted to tell you about E Vestigio — Photography from Bombay, India instead.

Starting a photo blog is when you realize just how how few really great photos you end up taking. Despite the zillions of photos that I have taken over the past few years, I see now just how many of them are a learning experience and how far I still have to go. I've been photo-blogging for close to two weeks and lamentably, unlike this one, the photo blog is one space at least that I update everyday. Some of those pictures you may have seen over the course of the last few years but some, they're brand-new!

Also, in the absence of a website of mine own and the limited posting capabilities of both Aminus3 and Flickr, I've started posting albums to Picasa Web albums. As you can see, I've finally stopped collecting! These are a chronicle of themselves, of things I thought pretty along the journey but not always of the journey. They may not all be "good photographs" but I hope you like them anyway.

I posted one of these my first year and fell quite in love with them. This one's a lovely randomness of the events of the past near-year.

Wordpress.com has this theme called Monotone that is specifically designed for photoblogging. If you are restricited by Animus3's capabilities, maybe you should give it a try?

@Parth: Thanks - was going to mail and ask if some more spam is welcome! :-)

@Plain Jane: Thankee, love. I like that one too but no one else seems to!

@Ideasmith: I'm doing, I swear!

@Lekhni: No, no, I like it fine - I was just being greedy and wanted to able to post albums there! *sheepishly smile* Thanks for the tip though - I'm hoping to set up my own site soon so maybe then.
