The beauty of the flower


By plucking her petals, you do not gather the beauty of the flower.
- Rabindranath Tagore

Sadly, daughter was influenced by kids at home to pluck these flowers. They are such a beauty amongst all the concrete surrounding our place.

A Beginner’s Guide on Digital SLR Photography

There is a sudden boom in the public interests of digital photography. What used to be a professional gadget is now as common as point and shoot camera. With the wide selection of DSLR cameras today, how can you determine of you are about to make the right gadget choice?

Now DSLR cameras are expensive, hence you don’t want to throw your hard earned money to waste by buying a camera that is hard to learn and complicated for a beginner. If you only intend to learn photography as a hobby it will be better to settle for a user-friendly model rather than an advanced one.

Having a digital SLR camera is only the beginning as you would need more tools and accessories to come up with amazing pictures. Know your terms such as the ISO settings and different lenses. Familiarize yourself with the features of your camera by searching for some tutorials and learning a thing or two. This is the best way to gain information without having to pay unlike in a formal photography school with the number of sites and forums offering tutorials and information you can be self-taught in no time.

Learn picture editing with the help of software like Photoshop. No need to spend hours fixing pictures, with just a few mouse clicks you can quickly fix its lighting. It is also very important to know your subject and the concept that you are going for in every shot. Have fun and let your imagination run wild, do not over think about angles or camera positions. Remember that photography is as its best when it is random and unrehearsed.

Starting To Get Fit

With the internet habit, especially with the way I am always glued to the computer, more people like me tend to sit and stay seated for long hours. I can't help it. Computers and being connected had become a part of my everyday life. It has been said that "being connected" is the alternative to being couch potatoes. I've read that if I continue this habit, it would soon cause some disorder in my body and probably kill me too! That's kind of morbid. I love my life and if I want to live a longer happy life I need to get out of this computer chair and start moving. I try to eat a healthy diet but I really think exercising will help me big time. Especially if I want to get rid of the flabs starting to form in my stomach. Eek!
They say that exercising is the way to a good life and by not doing so I am just depriving myself of a good life and a happy future. It doesn't take a sports psychology degree to know fitness programs are essential. It's never to late to start now.

Now, where to start... I know it's not advisable to just follow the exercise instructions found online. I still think that it's best to get advice from a personal trainer with good certification or an experienced friend. 
I'm off for now. Will do some stretching and walking around the house.

Exercise is a fundamental part of healthy living, but we must be diligent about how we approach it. These tips can allow you to introduce it in the most effective way possible and always protect your health.
  1. Decide upon a routine: As you think about exercise in your life be sure that you consider what sort of routine you would like. This can include a variety of classes, visits to the gym, activities that you can do at home or even outdoors. Be sure that you incorporate a variety of activities and decide upon a routine that will work well for you individually.
  2. Set a schedule for yourself and make your workouts appointments that you can’t miss: Your workouts need to become a regular fixture in your life. The only way that is going to happen is if you allow yourself to schedule them into your calendar as any other type of appointment. You must put emphasis on the regularity and therefore the exercise needs to be part of your regular schedule.
  3. Learn to create a well balanced regimen for yourself: Though you may think that focusing on cardio or strength training individually can help, you do want to mix it up. Challenge your body and keep it guessing by incorporating a balanced regimen that will pull in all types of exercise regularly.
  4. Allow yourself time to make regular exercise a habit for you: They say that to develop or get rid of any habit you need to give it about a month. Be patient with yourself as you work through the aches and pains and try to accomplish what you want to. It will become habit but you have to be dedicated and diligent about your approach.
  5. Try new exercises and learn to incorporate a wide array of types: Don’t limit yourself to just the treadmill. Try a class that you have never done before or hit the weights to try something new. There are so many different types of exercise out there and if you want the best results then you need to mix it up a bit.
