LiMiTeD...

tushar says my thinking and photography is limited by my philosophy....

i agree..

i have not thought or even made a slight effort (sorry about that tushar) to get technically sound with photography... although i have like a million questions on how to do this and how to do that... and the answer is going to come from?

READING...

uh... brings me back to something that i am not good at... reading... but i guess i will have to leave that mind-block aside to grow... thanks tushar for being a pain and making me think this...

coming back to photography...

i have thought of a theme.. a message... a story... a moment with all my fotos... and not of the ISO, or the Shutter Speed or the Aperture so far... i want to graduate to a DSLR and do all this... that is when i will also have data to analyse.. today a film based SLR does not let me remember the F-value or the Shutter Speed for every one of those 36 shots... anyway... this is not an excuse but a realisation of whats not being done...


and reading... i have promised tushar that i will read "A train to Pakistan" in two days as required by him... so be it...

and we went to Costa to have Coffee today.... the Primo, the Medio and something else is the cup size there... oops... the Coffee cup size i meant...

and then we did not really a lot of good gurls in the sector18 today.... so we came back sooner then usual...

oh and i want to read "Spouse" by Shoba De... hudd hai... now i want to read books that talk about a happy married life.. huh !!! and i bought the "Malgudi Landscapes - The best of R.K. Narayan" ab padunga...

and i uploaded a foto of the Howrah Bridge on my photo-blog...

and i want to rest now...

but i do not want to...

abhi chalta hoon...
phir milta hooon...

  1. Since when has it become essential to read a book to know what a happy marriage is all about? And gyan from Shobhaa De??? Puhlease!

  3. I'm with Woodsmoke. Shobhaa De is good for erotic lines. Try reading 'Snapshots' by her. You'll know why every title by her has this printed.. 'a shocking Indian writer - New York Times.'

    I, personally, give a damn to technicalities when I'm clicking. But at times I've noticed that they're important. But reading about them is something I am not keen about, because, I won't necessarily put them in practice. But try doing it your way, the way you like. Remember what I told you.. how they're doing lighting workshop's not fun, but overall it's interesting.

    You must read Train to Pakistan.

    And, Malgudi series is awesome. Simple & Real.

    Aur, dekha--maine kaha tha na. You hardly get to see chicks in 18..! Bade log aaj idea tea peene nahi gaye? Costa kaise? Us din to kya reactions the tum dono ke!

  4. @ woodsmoke...

    since never dear...

    it was a plain mere coincidence... that i thought i will read this book... and i had the thought for a while.. even before my own marriage thoughts...

    i am sure Shobha De has some audience.. and dedicated too... so i would not comment... i do not know anything about writers and their work...

    # you...
    you bet it is... i hope you read the books you have picked up while i also am working on my reading habits...

    good luck..

    # Rohit..
    jude, i am not reading her to get some gyan... it just so happened that i wanted to read that book... and then the sequence of events happened :)

    i have enough friends who can give me gyan :)

    about the techicalities... well the thoughts make a picture.. and the technicalities improve it... otherwise how would you be so happy about burning those night fotos... you could just carry a 650 bucks kodak and keep clicking like crazy around.. but you choose not to... which means somewhere the technicalities play a major role in what you click...

    i will read the train...

    I have always loved things about Malgudi.. the serial, the books.. everything...

    chicks were not there yesterday.. but i guess you get good number to oogle at usually...
    Costa isliye coz Tushar wanted to have coffee.. style maarne ke liye :)

  5. Kya yaar tum bade log bhi kya kya karte ho style marne ke liye.

    I remember falling in love with Malgudi series about four years back and gave it to all my younger cousins on their birthdays :)

    Technicalities.. yeah, that's a point. I burnt them, played around with camera's settings and got some decent results nevertheless. Aur aap ab chup chap apne Yahoo per se Flickr wala link dekho. I'd like to know what you liked and what you didn't.
