I like the second one. The shot's full of action in a strange way on the tree.

I came across another photo blog called Dilli Wallah, I forgot the name. The pictures were not bad but the kind of comments people leave there speaks about an utter disregard for the photographer cum blogger and kill the real beauty of the picture.

For example, shots of a dirty street in Nizamuddin (Muslim area) are met with typical elitist comments from Delihites, such as "this place needs cleaning" or "what a dirty place!"

The point is not that. The point is the beauty of the pictures, which these people are missing.

I don't want to create a rift, but people in the south are more polished and well-meaning, at least that's what the Dilli Wallah photo blog pointed out to me.

I follow Delhiwallah blog regularly and I know what you are talking about. I think, it's a very popular blog and attracts a much wider audience. So the comments are like the ones you read on Rediff. Take a look at rediff. You will find the comments on Delhiwalla very polished in comparison.

Also, Delhiwallah writes for a popular Delhi newspaper and is a well know figure. Most of the comments are actually directed at him and not at the work he presents on the blog. Which is sad.

The people who come to my blog have been kind and I stick to pictures. There's no mention of the individual to attack here.

Popular south blogs (or bloggers) are also vandalised by silly comments. Churumuri ( http://churumuri.wordpress.com/ ) , Karnataka's most popular blog has a fair share of imbeciles shooting off idiotic comments. And as always it's against the person who runs the blog and has nothing to do with the articles.

We are all Indians when it comes to nastiness. North, South, East or West. Or that's what I have noticed.

As for this blog. I do not write much about my pictures like Delhiwallah. If he does the same, he would probably get fewer spam comments. But then that would make the blog less interesting.

Very nostalgic pics. I still recall those days when we played with used/worn out tyres & 'marakothi'. Alas, kids these days know hardly any physical activities.

I like all three. The expressions in the first, the angle and the subject in the 2nd, and the little rosy detail in the third:)
