iim ahmedabad

...where i spent my childhood years.

i also recently saw "MY ARCHITECT, A Son's Journey", a wonderful documentary made by nathaniel kahn,
son of louis kahn, the visionary architect who designed the iim campus.

"a tale of love and art, betrayal and forgiveness- in which the illegitimate son of a legendary artist undertakes a five year, worldwide exploration to understand his long-dead father."

of logos and photos, B&H @ 9th ave & 34th st.

figure this...
panasonic/lumix's LX5 and leica's DLUX5 are EXACTLY the same camera.
leica has simply taken the same camera and printed the beautiful leica logo on it.

the leica is also $400 more expensive. so, i bought the LX5.

first photos using the LX5...

j-j d. was one of the leaders of the only slave rebellion in world history which successfully resulted in establishing an independent nation... which he named haiti. unfortunately, he then went on to massacre the whites on the island, declare himself emperor and enforce a harsh regimen of plantation labour so much so that many blacks felt they were enslaved again. haiti's sad history and its current state of affairs seem to be directly linked to these historical events which took place 200 years ago.
