The Header

The current header is a lot of hardwork, and I am happy with what it shows. The best bit is I can keep editing it, change some of the images as and how my life evolves and changes. After going through a phase of constantly changing the headers, I have finally got one, that I would like to keep. And it will be simple enough to alter it bit by bit when I feel the need.


For long I have been wanting to do a header with my own photos, but the thought of sorting through, and finding the ones I liked, seemed like such a tedious job. But somehow the time just felt right to do it this time. I went through nearly every photo on my hard disk and picked these up. Though not consciously done, but I realise now, how each photo has a story to tell. Almost every one of them is special in its own way, and has some amazing memories associated with it. The white-pink roses for example are from my office desk, back in the days when I was working in one. Picked up from a flower vendor on the way to office in the morning, kept my desk fresh and spruced up for a couple of days. The one with me standing in a doorway, is from an ancient temple in Gwalior, one of the most memorable vacations the DH and I had.

So here I am absolutely happy with this header, and my efforts. All I can say is long live photoshop and digital images. Ah yes, two of the photos are from the Net, and I will keep them till i find good substitutes from my own collection.

We could see that all the photos are special - I especially loved the shadow one (Planning to copy that when my family is complete!) And the mother-son photos are drops of honey! The B/W pic of your baby is just awesome! In short, I liked everyone of them! ;-D

BTW, where do you get such lovely roses? The street vendors in BLR sold only red or yellow. I just love how pale the roses in your pics looks!

Love the header. I like changing mine to reflect my current week's theme(birthday/rakhi/stuff)

T3 - Hey, the b/w one is me! he he he. Thanks for so many compliments. We used to get roses in many colours, in Bombay, but white ones are my favourite, and these ones, though not exactly white, looked very pretty. :)

Mummyjaan - Thank you!

Asaaan - that pic is off the Net, surprisingly, there are no decent shopping pics I have, have to get some!!

M4 - Thanks a ton!!

The header is cool...How do you find the time to do all this? I'm dying here - those easy Gurgaon days are over for me :-(

yeah, pretty interesting header... I've been trying to get myself to do something with my headers since a long time..

Bones - You get used to it after a while, so then it all works out, also I dedicate time to my interests, else I'll go mad!!! I am quite sloppy around the house anyways.

Rakesh - Thanks.:) Why are you trying? Do it!!

I just love this header.. Mainly because it feels so vibrant and real.. I guess the personal touch is what makes it so special! You should do this professionally - you are really good at it!

Smitha - Its just that a lot of people don't fool around with photoshop, else you will be surprised at how simple it really is. :P But I am not telling if such wonderful compliments keep coming. ;)
