After getting over my disappointment of not getting the camera that I wanted, and still trying to understand the camera that I have got (and in the process fucking up some nice shots), I got back to clicking left, right and centre. Reminds me of the times when I used to shove my cam into all my friends’ faces in college or things around them and irritate them to the core! 🙂
So, a little bit of nature, a little bit of culture, and a bit of random stuff makes up for a week of jpg files in my bag.
Yes, you will get to see most of it. 🙂
Starting in reverse order, here I present the pictures that I clicked today. It’s Independence Day tomorrow, so I have been ‘in the mood’ since morning. Our regular petrol pump was beautifully decorated this morning, and I asked one of the guys there if they’re selling balloons n all too. They didn’t, but he gave me three balloons (you guess the colours) and I realized that it has been several years since I last phulaoed (lot of people heard this word in office today :P) a balloon.
At the entrance of my building 😀
Made some colleagues pose too. 😀
The fact that I worked for long hours yesterday, and that the border would have been a problem to cross after 5 p.m., we left early today and I thought of paying a visit to Dilli Haat. It’s a delight to see it during festive time. And Teej is celebrated in a big way here. There was dance, there was mehandi, and there were all kinds of food.
I went in, bought the bangles that I’d been wanting to since morning, clicked a lot of pictures, and felt happy!
The hippest and the most colourful drummer!
The most comfortable and flexible dancer! This smiling, friendly guy happily posed with the not-so-pretty lady, himself took my camera from my hands, showed it to all his friends, and very nicely handed it back. Fun!!! 🙂
Before this, on Sunday, I ventured out into the green world and found…
Day & Night…on the same stem
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!
