Write Until i Think

More than a few months have passed since that night which was so desolate an affair as to be voiceless in a sea of thoughts. The swarm of thoughts that came to me swayed as if a storm was up and about, battering them with a torrential downpour of ideas that resonated with the words “If Only”. Voices talked about my fear and the accompanying frustration. I wanted to capture time and erase painful memories that stirred up a rage powered by a hundred-and-one repressed emotions and unremembered misdeeds. The most hurtful prose ever written was bursting at its seams in my mind as I fantasised writing word after word, idiom after idiom of savage nothings… Continue reading “Write Until i Think”

Beyond Dreams

Dreams have a certain visceral quality. They follow an atypical, unthinking process leading to pragmatic ends. Yet they are nothing if not sensible. An entity of discerning nature may very well glean all the facts there are to know about the dreamer. The instinctive, intimate and fleeting moments constructed in the minutest detail have the power to disrupt reality itself. A mind astray from conscious percepts of its enclosing sphere of tangible information is vulnerable to the onslaught of fantasy – false within the constructs of an objective world but true in the mind of a prophet.

Uninspired Hence No Two.tle

What follows are the results of this little venture and a bit more. I made up my mind to photograph people and only people and on an overcast day, set out with the Yashica in hand. Continue reading “Uninspired Hence No Two.tle”

Uninspired Hence No Title

But then there are times when my head is bursting with thoughts! Its like a whole different person is sitting in that cranial compartment and pushing all these buttons that make different coloured lights .. well .. light up! Here I am, typing out lexically analysed unplanned words and Mr. Brain up there is already forming sub-conscious, unconscious, promiscuous thoughts that have nothing to do with anything you’re reading now. Is this a rant? You bet! Continue reading “Uninspired Hence No Title”

Going Analog – 35mm Magic

After much ado I finally found a photo studio which developed 35mm film in a city 500 kilometres away. I managed to get 2 rolls processed and scanned before the studio shut shop due to lack of business for 35mm rolls \o/ Continue reading “Going Analog – 35mm Magic”

Going Analog Part Tri

To make this post more enjoyable, check out Part 1 and Part 2. At this point in time I had a second hand Yashica Electro 35 GSN and absolutely no 35mm film in my possession. The text that follows is a description of the toil to get the camera up and running.

Going Analog Part 2

If you haven’t already, go check out the first post Going Analog. The epic number of choices available in the digital photography world made me happy. They also made me unhappy. There was no way I was going to make up my mind. I knew that I would get the best out of whichever camera I eventually picked up, but that first step itself was nerve wracking. Continue reading “Going Analog Part 2”

Going Analog

I did it! I’m on my way back to the stone age! This is probably the most exciting thing that has happened in the past few months!

A brand-new-40-year-old Yashica Electro 35 GSN is now one of my most prized possessions!!! Continue reading “Going Analog”
