Feeling Better

Just what the song says….. ‘never been better’ (this may or may not have something to do with the tattoo and the fact that today is Friday!!!!) 😉

I’m still on my feet
The world can’t knock me down
‘Cause I won’t take defeat
I’m still chasing the crowd
But I’m still around
Look who’s winning now


I’m never giving up
No such thing as enough
I keep on winning
Just beginning to get all that I want
Nothing can hold me back
‘Cause I’m not made for that
I’m always good but I’ve been better lately

Pinhole View

I bought a Holga HPL-C Pinhole 0.25mm Prime Lens for Canon Digital SLR Camera. Why? Just for the heck of it 🙂 I wanted to try and experiment (as I always do) with lights and stuff. And I read about this Pinhole camera’s and how we can make a pinhole for ourselves. Since I didn’t have the tools or the time to do it myself, I went and bought one. I received it today (i.e. yesterday) and spent some time playing with it. It is so small and weightless. IMG_5512

I tried taking a selfie (yes, you can do that if you have a tripod , a timer (not mandatory though) and lots of time to experiment) and was happy with the result, but then since I ain’t photogenic I promptly deleted it. Then went on with my day and while hearing the song “Up” by Olly Murs and Demi Lovato, I ended up noticing two lines and converting them to a small image. I drew that in a paper and then realized in the evening that I can try to photograph that using my pinhole lens.

Here is the result of that taken through my Pinhole lens and edited a bit using Picasa. Not a good one by any measure, but I just started getting a hang of it. More to come once I get some good ones.question-001
Just in case it wasn’t clear in the image. It says

But you know what I want

Cosmic Musicology Test: Shame, Shame, I Know Your Name…

Once again, the ‘Cosmic Musicology Test‘ by Steve. Here are this week’s questions and my playlist answers.

I’m so proud of…?  

Dance with me tonight – Olly Murs

Yeah, there was this time when we had a house party at a friends place and guess what I did a dance number. I never ever dance if you don’t count my Zumba classes, before anyone else. Only my nieces and my house walls are privy to that disastrous attempts.  But I sort of morphed my dance to try a Zumba number and I am really proud that I did it. Yay!

I’m so ashamed of…?

Bottoms up – Brantley Gilbert

I think the songs are getting repeated, well, whatever. I am not exactly ashamed of doing bottoms up because that is the only way I know to  🙂 Trust me, I just can’t hold my drink. I sort of finish it like I drink water and hence my resistance to go beyond the first glass.

My guilty pleasure is…?

Every night – Imagine Dragons

Huh? OK. Let me try. My guilty pleasure is to go home and read a romance book (especially when the work is tough) every night. Is that even a guilty pleasure ?
