Grow up

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

You drew a question mark
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 ?
