There is a saying in Telugu that “Usiponi mangalodu pillo burra gorigedu taa” which translates as “an idle barber shaved a cat’s head” . Though my present predicament is confined only to the former part of the saying i.e. Idleness! Winter days are supposed to be short but with nothing productive to do, the days seem pretty long and umm….sorta boring!
But…not to worry! Thankfully I’ve got a pretty vivid imagination and a decent enough err…umm…Creative Genius streak within. Armed with my Sony Cyber-shot W80, I’ve been clicking many a pics all around me. A quick upload-and-review later, I realize that the subjects of my photography include Nature, People, Animals, Buildings, Vehicles and a host of other mundane objects. A torn paper, a beggar’s bowl, almost-extinct 5-paise coins, gnawed shoes, discarded furniture, broken watches, dusty cycles, leaky pipes, stained spitoons, sand barrels, burnt fuses, melted plastic, old cobwebs and what nots!!! I guess no objects are as bad so as not to be photographed
But alas! I do crave for a decent photo-editing-software (like Photoshop or maybe the GIMP) that may be helpful in adding an artistic touch or two to the already good snapshots. And the bandwidth constraints here prevent me from getting those utilities and also from uploading these snaps to Picasa or Flickr for y’all to see them. Wait….and watch.
