Look Ma, my photos got published!

I am experiencing the sort of gratification that amateur photographers hope for. In the post today, came a book that I had forgotten all about – Synagogen. Die Schönsten Gotteshauser des Judentums. Don’t ask me what that means, because I don’t know any German either. But a while back I was asked if two of my photographs of the Bevis Marks Synagogue could be used in a book on famous synagogues. And these are the pages with my photographs.

    Congrats! nice photos. Btw, that German bit means “Synagogues, The Most Beautiful Godhouses (literally) of the Jews”.


  2. Broom says:

    show off.



  3. anoop says:

    🙂 Congratulations and enjoy dear neha.. but one thing, did they give credit of photos to you… if not please mension that….


  4. anoop says:

    Did you saw shivaji…???? What u think about that film?


  5. JK says:

    Wonderful. Congratulations!
    And Mr Anoop, do you always go to blogs and address the author as ‘dear so and so’. There’s a review of Sivaji on this blog. Maybe if you spelled it right, the search function would yield an answer.

    Sorry Neha, there’s something about Mr Anoop’s tone that I find very irritating.


  6. Aditya: Thanks for the translation.

    Broom: Uff! 🙂

    anoop: While I won’t take on JK’s tone, please do not call me “Dear Neha”. It annoys me. In a public forum, it pretends a familiarity that doesn’t exist. And yes, they did give credit. There is also a review of Sivaji on this blog. Please do use the search box in the sidebar to find it.

    JK: If I am right about who you are, you haven’t changed a bit. Thanks lady. 🙂

  11. Shyam says:

    Wow, fantastic! Absolutely FANtastic! By the the title translates to: Synagogues: The most beautiful Houses of God (or Godhouses literally) of the Jews.


  12. Shyam says:

  16. anoop says:

    Sorry, JK and Nehavishwanadan…
    I feel all blogers are my friends.. thus i use that word. No problem..Its good u got the credit.

    There was an insident, yahoo used malayalm blog entries in their website without any credit. So malayalam blogers are in protest with yahoo. and they said sorry about that … thus i asked about credit..
