Light Saber!

For this week’s photo rehab entry, I thought I will play with my saber and some lights 🙂
I got these stones from Fort Bragg’s Glass Beach, and the small saber/sword, whatever that is called, I got it in a restaurant (don’t remember which one) and is precisely the size of my index finger.

(Taken with my phone)
For the final image (taken with my Canon 60D), I planted the saber among the stones, lit up a candle for the background light and shot it and added a little effect in DPP.

Inspiration: The scene from the movie Minions (which we watched on Saturday) where in the minion Bob crashes into the mythical ‘Sword in the Stone’ and pulls the sword to defend himself 🙂
What do you think?



“There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”
― Edith Wharton

Let this New Year bring enough light into your lives to drive away the fear of the unknown, to bring the ray of hope for better things to come and a smile, every day of the year.

Wishing you all a Very Happy, Prosperous and a Healthy New Year

Warm Regards,

What goes around

Yesterday while driving back from the yoga class, we hear the recent song by Will.I.Am and Cody Wise , ‘Its my Birthday‘. And immediately we knew which Indian song it was ‘inspired’ from (I know that this song has come in Hindi, Tamil & Telugu) . It’s called ‘Urvasi Urvasi‘ from the ‘Indian Michael Jackson – Prabhudeva’s ‘ first debut movie as a hero, Kadhalan, and this song was a super duper hit at that time. All youngsters knew this song by heart.

When that movie had come, every one mentioned that this tune was inspired by some other Western / Arabic song (I have no clue as to which one it is till date). Now it has inspired a Western song. Well, what goes around…. But this doesn’t have to a national news now does it ?   There are always ‘inspirations’ going on in the music industry.
