TGIF # 5: Woodrow’s at 6th Street, Austin

Who plays darts in a pub? And that too when its Super Bowl Sunday? Lesser mortals like me and 4 others do. Well, what else can you do when all that you understand about Super Bowl is ‘touchdown‘, and that too only from the Hollywood movies you have seen. Woodrow’s at 6th Street, Austin has a nice place to play darts – two boards in all. Interestingly, everybody was busy watching Super Bowl on tv so we ‘took over’ the dart playfield for more than an hour. 

The following shot is one of my attempts to capture the ‘Flying Dart‘. This on-the-move photography was extremely difficult since I had a limited capability camera. It took me 7 unsucessful attempts to shoot this. And boy, I was jumping when I could do this. The model in the shot is Tarun Bansal and the onlookers included Harish, Vibhav and Amit. Keep Austin Weird!

TGIF # 4: Victoria Memorial Kolkata

Victoria Memorial is one of the most famous landmarks of Kolkata. Erected as a memorial for Queen Victoria, the monument is now a popular hang out for local and tourists alike. And like almost everything in Kolkata, it is an excellent value for money. Stroll in the premises, sit and talk, ride on a tanga outside and grap a few Phuchkas (Golgappa/ Panipuri). Here’s a shot taken during my visit to the place more than a year back.
