When I rushed to the Lal Bagh Chya Raja Pandal after shooting Vodafone Speedfest Race of Lewis Hamilton, I was sure I was not going to be on time to shoot his inaugral darshan today for Media and Press .
And I was late by a few minutes the photo shoot began at 7.45 .
I met Rju Langewal and others and they felt sad for me , I was leaving for home when I met Sumit Kale of Kale Bros Provision stores Lalbagh Market , he is a photography enthusiast , ans when he came to know I could not shoot The Raja he sent me these pictures shot by him to share on my Flickr photostream..

Jai Ganesha Thank you Sumit Kale ...

My idea of a good picture is one that's in focus and of a famous person. - Andy Warhol

If Only Vodafone Customer Care Was As Good As This Event ...

This Was the Only Road In Mumbai Without Potholes .. Experience ..

Simply because no media only bloggers were shooting this stretch , and bloggers reach is greater than that of Media.. they also knew that Deepak Eye Puneet Dubey and yours truly and others like us are precision emotive shooting bloggers nothing escapes their sequinned cosmic camera eye..

I came to the The Grand Hyat with Deepak Magic eye he met me at the Kherwadi signal...I picked him up and we reached the venue in time, this was one of the finest meets I have attended and as I am not much of a descriptive narrator I will corroborate my experience at the meet with pictures.

After the registration ,was a round of Introductions ably handled by Kartik..he was glib and clinically comperetive to Anup Johnson . at the other end in New York..

I sat as usual with Uma Shankar Pandey and Deepak Magic Eye , both photography enthusiasts and the race pictures would have not been possible without both of them, they gave a lot of tips on camera settings..

I met some great bloogers old and new among the new i wont forget Scheherazade Sherry Shirin she has a lot of pseudonyms .. Wafa F 1 race blogger and lucky winner to do a lap with Lewis Hamilton.. she is from Pune ..

And at this meet there were bloggers from Chandigarh, Ahmedabad Pune Nasik..and as far as Bandra.

Lunch was out of the world specially the clear soup...there were lot of pictures taken by the side of the racer car..

Now I must tell you I am not a F1 Fan definitely not a Vodafone fan, but Shahsi Bhushan was great .. he head Vodafone Marketing .. and this is the first race I shot..

Though I must confess though this was my first car race shoot , I have passionately shot the indigenous bullock cart race for several years till they were banned , at Alibagh and Murud Janjira .

I have one regret though I rushed like a wildbeast after the race at about 7.15 to Lalbagh bI had to reach there by 8 to shoot the Lalbgh Chya Raja first darshan for Press and Media , I have shot it every year, but I reached past 8 and it was over , I was terribly dejected , but perhaps it is the Lords way.. a friend will give me his pictures to post ..I shot the pandal the Lalbagh and Gauri again and returned home drained drenched ..

And I will first post the race pictures later the Hyatt Meet ..

Thank you Renie Ranvin Vineet Rajan Karthik Hemal and the entire Indiblogger team , fellow bloggers ...and Deepak Magic Eye Uma Shankar Pandey most of all..
