hey it's not my fault that when inspiration strikes, there's nothing better to shoot around.

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. And no, not only about which of the 20 or so chapters of economics I will be reading next. No, I've been spending a lot of time poring through photography blog archives. There's nirrimi (just a little older than me! :O ), the photodiarist, and a variety of other insanely talented photographers I've found at shoot for your life

And i think it's what i want to do for the rest of my life.

Also, this is my first edited photo! I used to take the easy (and lazy) way out and pride myself on having not edited any of my photos, but I now think it's something I should familiarize myself with. I know what tone is! I guess all those watercolours art classes I took as a kid have been of some use.

Oh, and I use a canon powershot S5 IS (pictured above) with the 6-72 mm lens it comes with. But I will be getting a dslr, most probably a canon eos rebel T2i, as an after boards gift. Can't wait!  :D

The photo is a reflection on the glass door of a mostly empty book shelf. The vague red and gold things are trophies and plaques from a really long time back. I stopped being 'Most Amicable Personality' after the third grade.

I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do, our name is our virtue

fiery stuff

happy lohri / pongal / makar sankranti!
woohoo indian cultural diversity.
