My favorites from picasa albums

Welcome visitor! Thanks for visiting my photo blog. In my earlier blog posts, where I uploaded my photos in this blog, you could buy/print/share my photos. I got a bit busier in recent days with my studies, so can't manage to upload my photos in picasa and blog twice. If you like any particular photo and interested to buy/print, feel free to let me know.

You can check out my personal favorites uploaded in the picasa albums. I hope you enjoy the photos! Click play for the slideshow.

Fire juggling and Fireworks at University of Rochester for Meliora Weekend 2011

What is Meliora Weekend
Meliora Weekend was founded in 2001 following the successful Sesquicentennial celebration of 2000. The weekend celebrates reunions, family weekend and homecoming activities. It is designed for alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends of the University of Rochester. More:

There were lots of events. This year we had Bill Clinton to give a keynote and for entertainment session we had Russel Peters. I missed all of those, but managed the ending of the celebration with fire juggling and fireworks. Some photos from the event.

Selected ones in high-res:

An American Hurricane

I don't think people panic this much in Bangladesh or in Florida for hurricane. I think the main reason the media/govt is panicked so much is because: i. Its not usual for north-east coast, ii. After katrina, govt is trying to be very careful, so that there are less damage and people are safer. In any case, for good/bad, I happen to be in NYC to welcome Ms. Irene at my uncle's place. I thought to do what i like the most - taking some photos. I pray and hope for everyone's safety and lets hope this album gets an happy ending..

Sardinian group Sa Roda's performance

I wanted to check out the churches at Barcelona. What could be a better day than a Sunday! I ended up going to the church today (even though didn't take photos of the church!) and found few people in some traditional dress. I talked to few of them and came to know that they are from Sardinia, an island in the Mediterranean. They will dance in front of the church after an hour. Wandered around, shot some photos of their preparation, inside the church and finally their traditional performance. Name of their group is Sa Roda. It was really a nice performance and they were really very nice people.
Check more about Sardinia. I didn't video, but you can get an idea of their dance from this video.
This lovely couple explained me at first about the event, later others explained in more details.
Getting ready for the event - my favorite shot of the event!
I was told they were singing in Sardinian.
First row in the church - older people, or someone interested in taking photo.

Flag of Sardinia.

Before their dance, they gave everyone some cookies.
