Throwing great clouds of turmeric powder offerings called bhandara into the air, the pilgrims paint the town golden yellow – a color they associate with the power of the sun, and one suggestive of Khandoba’s solar origin.
Last month was the 10th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. I recently got hold of a copy of Stepping Through The Ashes (photographs by Eugene Richards and interviews by his wife Janine Altongy), which was released in 2002 by Aperture.

We have always been fans of Ricoh cameras. They make great compact cameras. We have used Ricoh GXR, GR1s and the GRD3 cameras, so were quite curious about the new Ricoh GRD4. Fortunately, we managed to get our hands on a loan unit for a few days. While this is not a full review, here are some points we noted about the GRD4. The GRD4 body looks and feels exactly the same as the 3. Once powered, the most immediate difference in the GRD4 over the 3 is the auto-focus speed – it is noticeably faster, even in low light environments. …

The Canon PowerShot S90/95 series compact cameras are without doubt one of our favorite ‘real-pocket’ RAW cameras. It is quite amazing the power it packs for such a small, small camera. The only little itch sometimes is that it is an LCD camera, which makes shooting in very sunny street photography weather an issue. How can we improve on this? Ahem, add an external viewfinder like this! PowerShot S100 + Voitglander 35mm viewfinder PowerShot S100 + Ricoh GV2 28mm viewfinder Now if some entrepreneurial person makes a little stick-on cold shoe attachment of some sort, like the S95 grip…
A few weeks ago when I was in Hong Kong (HK), Typhoon Nesat swept past. On Thursday, 29th September 2011, Typhoon Signal No. 8 was issued and the whole of HK basically shut down.
