After a gap of several months, I’ve started working again, i.e. working in a company and not for myself. In this week gone by, life has changed at such a dramatic pace and so irreversibly that I’m a bit hard pressed to find that modicum of comfort I’m used to. Even a few minutes to breathe easy are a luxury. From the beautiful, pink city of Jaipur of lanes three hundred years old, I’m now in a shiny new glass encrusted steel clad suburb of Delhi.
This culture shock left me gasping, for creative freedom, for simple joys I cherish – long walks in the park, drops of rain streaming down leaves and searching the grass for little birds that may have accidentally fallen off and need restitution. With no park in sight, I’ve opted for photographing anything I can, with my phone – the only camera I carry as of now.
When I moved cities, the airport had a few interesting Mirror reflections. Here’s one seen from within the airport looking out. I felt a bit like Captain Kirk sitting on the skydeck when everything in front goes wrong (oh, and it’s not dark, yet)
This one, a personal favorite, is called ‘What’s on TV’. I saw it on the bus to the aircraft.
Another day, another flight, ‘the bird on gate 13’ stopped me in my tracks, forcing a few shutter presses – one with a minor self portrait.
When I reached my hotel, the bed that awaited me, overlooking a city – I called it ‘up in the air’. Can you see the little car? 🙂
Last, a handheld long exposure (2 seconds), Hard Rock Cafe sign reflected. I called this one ‘Beautiful night’.
I should really be out there, looking for a place to rent, but here I am typing this all out. Well, what can I do? I’m incorrigible – a compulsive blogger – believer in free thinking, free spirit and in general an anti establishment soul living in the corporate world. Think stiff collars, ties and suits! Can’t tell you more, would love to, but can’t. Please leave a comment if you enjoyed the read.
