On 23rd April 2016 I traveled to the newly opened Sherpa Eco Resort at Village Dyarag near Solan (Himachal Pradesh) to attend a family function. The resort is located in the middle of dense Oak & Deodar forest which turns out to be a great habitat for beautiful insects, birds & animals. After spending around…
The Scott Kelby Photowalk was held on October 3rd 2015 in Chandigarh. This is a worldwide event where group leaders organize a photo walk in all major cities. The 2015 walk in Chandigarh was led by Sabin Prodan who belongs to Romania and was in Chandigarh for one of his professional assignments. I found the event interesting and registered for the walk. The meeting place was fixed as Sector 22 market. I had read a lot about street photography, but this would be my first hands on experience with the same.

The Journey Continues
This is the second part of my Birding Blog. In continuation to Part-1 of this blog I am listing some additional birds that I have managed to photograph in and around Chandigarh in the last 2-3 years. I have not visited any special places for photographing these birds. I found these birds in certain places that I visited as part of my other routines and managed to click as and when I had my camera along. Some of the photos displayed here are not up-to the mark as they were taken without proper camera equipment and were generally taken on the go.

There were around 20 participants who had already reached the venue by this time including the organizers.

On August 12 2015 submissions for Supplemental Wallpapers for Fedora 23 were announced. Supplemental wallpapers are extra wallpapers that are packaged with every new operating system release. Being a regular user of Fedora I was excited to read the post and decided to submit my entries for the election. The election was tough as entries are invited from all over the world and then only 16 wallpapers are selected through open voting by the Fedora community.
I browsed through my entire photo collection and finally zeroed down to 10 photos that I decided to submit for the election. The voting was held from September 13 2015 till September 17 2015. When the result was declared I was surprised to see 3 of my submissions making to the final list.
This election broke all the previous Fedora submission records. There were a total of 199 submissions out of which 157 were approved. A total of 1447 votes were polled and finally the winners were selected.
And then Fedora 23 was released and the supplemental wallpapers were announced.
The wallpapers were released as part of the f23-backgrounds-extras package. I downloaded Fedora 23 and installed it on my laptop and finally had a look at my own submissions.
It was a very proud moment seeing my name in the Author list for wallpaper owners.
Finally I received my first ever Fedora 23 badge for selected submission…..!!!
