Zoo lake (again)

I have posted this photo here before, in a brownish sepia tone; here it is in the original colours. It is one of my favourite photos and almost my only wallpaper since I captured this...

Lunar eclipse

once it got dark my ability to focus was a matter of luck only, and by the end I wasn't even sure the camera was still pointing at the moon...

New Camera

After saving up for ages, I finally have my own SLR... my preciousss.

Pictured: My new Canon EOS 600D. It came with a cushy bag and two lenses (18-55mm and 55 - 250mm). I have to resist the temptation to lose myself to its charms and settings until after exams end in July...

I fear I may blow what little money I have left on accessories if I'm not careful. The filters, the tripods.

Red Velvet Cake

I decided to surprise mum with this cake for her birthday. A brief encouter with a Red Velvet Cake a few months ago stuck in my mind and this was the perfect opportunity to try my hand it it. The recipe is from joyofbaking; no particular reason, it just simply happened to be the first result when I googled for a recipe. Apparently, the vinegar brings out the red in cocoa, which when combined with the red food colouring gives this chocolate cake its rich red colour. The entire thrilling history of the cake prefaces the recipe on the site. A few people I know have tried to replicate this cake to little success, but I believe that this recipe is flawless. All I did was follow it to the T (whatever that actually means).

I foolishly served up standard sized slices on her birthday, and I experienced a literal sugar rush. Light headedness, a roaring in my ears, and the desire to bounce from place to place. It was divine.
The Red Velvet Cake now ties for first place with the Sachertorte.

And now some pictures...
