When I'm Without a Camera

Not with a camera does not mean much of a hassle nowadays. I just think about the fellow who first thought that a cell phone should come with a camera--he must be a person of great imagination, a genius indeed. Apps are abounding these days. I'm told mobile phones can drive away mosquitoes. No need to endure the discomfort of fumes out of mosquito repellant; no need to fight with wife who should tie the mosquito net for the night! I've harnessed the power of my cell phone by clicking pictures when I'm not with my camera. Picture quality may not be that good, but then who cares? They're good enough for some use...and why not upload a few onto my blog. Here you are. Pictures speak a million words.

Dear Sir,
Cell phone Camera was developed by Dr. Eric Fossum and his team in the early 1990s. But the man who first thought about Cell phone Camera might be somebody else even very long ago. The information about mosquito repellant cell phone is very interesting but the waves may be harmful to human. The pictures are fine and nice. On 3/8/12 at Tirupur also we saw the celestial happening. Is there any astronomical importance for such black ring around the sun?. Photo of Rangoli is good feast to eyes and Saravanabhavan dinner plate containing 18 cups of dishes is the real feast to mouth. The Pictures are so fascinating. Fine presentation.
Thanks for nice pictures

The photos are very nice Sir. Especially the THALI at Egmore raises the appetite. Rangoli which needs deep concentration for a smooth finish and pleasant appeal to the eyes. Waiting eagerly some more photos .......

Thanks Padma. Like we Oriyas, Tamils are big eaters. Fifty percent of what you see in the plate are meant to be wasted--or else how does one eat so much? The eater should not forget that second and third helping are on their way!
