Keukenhof

Keukenhof – undeniably one of the most beautiful spring gardens in the world. The amazing colours of the millions of tulips is a treat and if you are a photographer, you will love the opportunities that this place presents. The day I was there was a bit cloudy, but that did not take away the charm of the place. The fields around the park were equally impressive with tulips of all colours.

Tomorrow is the last day for visitors to this park. If you have missed it this year and are in the Netherlands next year, make sure you visit Keukenhof. It is one of the must see places in the Netherlands.

Barcelona – Part 2

The second day, we visited the Sagrada Familia in the morning and Park Guell, the beautiful beach and not to forget FC Barcelona in the afternoon. The weather was really pleasant and we spent a lot of time at the beach.

Barcelona – Part 1

After two weeks in the Netherlands, it was time to head to a place with some sunshine. A few of my friends had planned on visiting Barcelona and so I hopped on. We were told it was raining in Spain but to our relief, it was not the case and the sun was out in all its glory.

Barcelona is a beautiful city, which is best admired on foot. It has a much relaxed feel and the people are friendly. The architecture is gorgeous here with almost every building having plants and flowers on the facade. The food was fantastic and we had our fill of tapas.

Pictures are better than words and so here we go.

Utrecht, The Netherlands

Three weeks ago, I arrived in this small cold country from our large and really hot country. Fortunately, the winter is behind us and spring is in the air. There have been some really sunny days. I couldn’t get as many pictures as I would have liked to, but here are a few

Pigeons

In the past few months, a few pigeons have made our neighbourhood their home. Here are a few pictures of them feeding on rice on my neighbour’s terrace. I just love their grace and their colour.

Whats happening to Zooomr (again)?

Well, even fully knowing what was going on with Zooomr a couple of months back, i signed up for the service yesterday.  My experience was not all that cool.

First, I tried to upload photos from my Ubuntu box and failed miserably. I tried both Firefox and Opera. No luck. I then read the zooomr blog and understood that there was a problem.I would like to note one thing. The blog they have linked to says Flickr uses a similar tool for upload and faces similar problems. if Flickr faces similar problems, then it does not imply that Zooomr should face the same issues too.

Ok, the purpose of my post is this. While I uploaded a few photos using my Windows box, I notice a general latency using the site. While I was able to switch between blog view, detail view and square view, I was not able to select an individual photo and delete. I need to delete some of the photos I have uploaded and I have been trying to get this done for two days. The response I get from the server is Zero Sized Reply

Can someone tell me how I can delete the photos?

One other thing. After I logoff and try to login from that screen, I keep getting the message Logout  Successful. Guys, I am trying to log in and not out. Providing unlimited space is one thing, providing a usable service is another. I prefer the latter.

I know there are a few of you who would tell me to use other services, fine. But, please fix your site since it gives new users like me a bad idea of what you are doing.

Nature at its best

I am sharing are some shots that I captured with my mobile phone camera.
