The pictures are really good. I wonder if its the camera or the person behind it :) or a mix of both that the pics taken in dim light look the best and btw which is that book under DOI.

@Patricia : Thanks...diff to work around a tiny, fully furnished apartment...and I moved to London just some months back but I tried :)
I want to congratulate u on the novel concept of weekend wrap...its fantastic, irresistable and fun!

Pranab: Thanks Pranab. The camera and the photographer (Me) weren't too bad but yes dim lights creates a special ambience.
