It takes a lot of effort to get into a habit. I have been absent from my blog for such a long time that it is painful to drag myself back into posting here. I have been planning it for a long time but haven't been taking the efforts of typing the words. Lack of practice makes it even harder. One of the things that I have been missing the most is spending time with my camera. I haven't been taking pictures for a while. And photography also becomes harder when not practiced.
I was looking for some push or reason to get back to photography and blogging. That's when I got a message from a friend asking me if I need a free phone: Asus ZenPhone 2 Laser, in return of a review. Even though I didn't need a phone (I am not much of a reviewer either) but I agreed, thinking it will be the push that I have been looking for. I have been carrying it for over a month and trying to click some snaps daily, even if I am repeating the snaps. I remember that that the reason I started my blog was to post a pic daily, to get better at photography. Now I want to do it all over again. The Asus phone is quite handy, I find it easier to carry around and it reminds me to click more often. I have been using it just as a camera to get back into the habit of taking pictures.
Let me post some of the clicks from my visit to Lavasa.

Now the review of the phone:
I have been using it as a camera with WiFi. I haven't even put a simcard in it to try it as a phone. For the camera it is a very good one, as you can notice from the pictures. I like the battery it allows me to click with flash without any worry. I also like the big screen as I can review the pictures taken. I like the build quality, I have already dropped it few times, but it is still clicking.
I will push the phone's camera a bit in coming weeks to try and click some difficult shots. May be in return it will push me to click more often. I don't really have a review but this is my journey of #back2clickingWithAsus.
