it's a pub called "The Ghetto" ... :) it is rather surreal.

SH... said...

But not a traditional english pub then - is it in Mumbai too?

quasibaba said...

ya, ofcourse. I am hardly out of Mumbai (other than trips to nearby wild places.. )

SH... said...

Never travelled out of India?

quasibaba said...

Heh. Nope. Couple of times to Delhi and Banglore (that too only for work during my Media Lab Asia days) ... Otherwise just the Sahyadris and Western Maharashtra. It's a wonderfull place. We did a 11 day bike trip in May along the cost and such...

well India has all you need - i'd love to travel round it on a motorbike. what do you do work wise? I'm at optometrist - *yawn*

quasibaba said...

hehe ... I had to look that up in the dict. I do software. And then I do some photography too. Currently working in a company called Cleartrip doing some Lisp programming. http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/articleshow/1397134.cms

I love photography - was on a photography course but didn't have enough time to take pics outside of work..
I'm just at home at the mo watching Will and Grace..
Whereabouts in Mumbai do you live - i only know Bandra, Mazgoan and Malad East - oh and the airport..

Well I spent most of my life in Kalina (Santacruz East). We recently shifted to Kandivili. But mostly am found at Ruia Naka or Bandra or Chembur or Mahalaxmi or .. ;) ..

SH... said...

I've been to Kandivili and Santacruz too - your pics of Ruia Naka are amazing! Are they all digital or do you print them yourself?

Film. It was Konica Centuria 200 film pushed 2 stops. Minolta Dynax 5 and a Minolta 50mm lens. Scanned and post processed on the PC. I have printed b&w earlier in my bathroom-converted-to-darkroom, but it is extremely painfull, time consuming and most importantly - expensive! Scanning the neg's is far cheeper and nicer.

SH... said...

u can scan negatives? B & W ones?

quasibaba said...

ya. b&w or colour, print or slide ... but you need a neg scanner for that. Normal flatbed scanners are not up to it.

SH... said...

sounds like a much better idea. though printing in a dark room is v relaxing.

quasibaba said...

Maybe in a cold country. Where I live, it was extremely hot, sweaty and exausting. Hehe. But I agree relaxation is a very personal concept.
