When i read about Indiblogger’s Change is easy contest, i knew i had to participate.. The contest was by Dell Inspiron… Alas, time just flew and i was running out of time, literally.. So, here goes my contribution….

Anybody who knows me, knows how crazy i am about gadgets and gizmos… I love exploring the new releases, i love playing with the gadgets, and digging deeper to understand what its features are…. 

They also know i wont simply use a theme or a pre-set image as the background or leave the device as it was…. I love playing around with it, and giving it an identity….  You get the picture, dont you?!

Whenever i pick up a new gadget, for myself, i make sure it reflects me, my tastes, and persoality… Its not just about the device, its about ME!!

I used to have a Sony Vaio 15″ laptop that had pretty Butterfly stickers on them and  little star stickers on the keyboard. They just seemed to perk me up the minute i sat to work on it.. The background display picture is always a photograph i had shot.. I was never big on downloadig images off the net and using it as a background image on my laptop… Plus, this is a cool way to show off my photography skills, right? 😉

 
There are not too many places i have taken the bulky laptop to, but wherever i have, the stickers were noticed. To a point where friends started gifting me things that had butterflies on them 🙂
I dont know when or how my love for Butterflies began, but now every soul around me knows about my love for em and keeps gifting me/informing me of things with butterflies on em…
About a year ago, i switched from my treasured and cherished Nokia N95 8GB to Blackberry Curve 8520.. Once i had figured out the various features, dowloaded the necessary apps, i started exploring the world through my Blackberry. Even though the Camera on this phone is not as great as the one in my Nokia, it dint deter me from clicking pictures of interesting things. Seconds later, one of them would be featured as my wallpaper… I would then mail the pictures to my mail, edit them if required and share or use them on my laptop. It is not a force of habit, or an obsession, but its something i enjoy …

Last weekend we had gone for a morning walk to the beach, where i captured a few shots from and now one of them is my wallpaper.. Infact, when i shared the screeshot with a friend, he suggested i renew my Flickr account and share my photographs out there.. Felt good to hear such encouraging comments

Apart from these, i have an External hard drive which again has a Butterfly sticker on it.. And my lovely iPod Touch with the cool background images taken from my many travels across the state and country… I scan through the images, wonder which will suit the device, which reflects my mood and use it till i feel the need for change, which is usually in a week or till i capture some new images..

Oh, did i tell you am now using a different Sony vaio, we had bought this for my sis, but since her office gave her a laptop, this came back to me.. Yayy!!  Its a sleek White one and the butterfly sticker shines beautifully on the outer cover.. How i wish i could create an entire new cover for the laptop… The desktop is again a photograph i shot – the most recent being that of a flower lying on the ground with a few raindrops, shot at Bicode, Karnataka…

I have recently bought a 1TB hard drive.. Wondering how to deck it up!!! ;o)

Off i go looking for some color to splash…
