Big mouth

Have you ever noticed that no matter which whisky they are drinking, the mouth of the bottle is always the old fashioned one

The light that falls through the windows on the bottle looks like braille.

Comfort Photography

Like there is comfort food, there is comfort photography - tried and tested subjects with predictable results. It doesn't produce anything spectacular and nothing unique but the results are quite good (enough).

Jab andhera hota hai...

So how was the Whisky? Buggered if I know. I am not an expert in whisky and I don't care about the expert's verdict about whisky either. I do know, though, a thing or two about graphic design and can say that this is a good enough bottle label. More to come soon.

Noida Authority joining Holi celebrations

Noida Authority joining Holi celebrations

Not to be left behind, the Noida Authrity also joined the Holi celebrations. I guess their idea was to delay it enough so that this water comes in the tap when the person goes for a bath after the holi but mistimes it. After a while, the water was clean again.

Happy Holi

Happy Holi

Will it? Won't it? After many days thinking about if the weather will be warm enough for kids to play holi, it took a turn in the favour of kids. It was sufficiently warm in the morning for kids to frolic in water. However none of them wanted to take a bath with cold water afterwards.

..ki aag hai mujhme khain

It's been a long time. I have not been posting on this blog and I have not been photographing either. Usually spring is a very active month for me but this time around the samera has not come out all that often.

Believe me, it is not an overstatement. This lighter is like a blowtorch... a small, pocket blow torch.

I liked the nifty little box these leads come in. It is easy to use as it down't require you to open a lid, you click the blue lever and it opens a hole for the lead to come out. More details in the next post.

The job is hectic and requires planning upfront.

Nector Shopping

Nector Shopping

No plastic, no paper, there is no credit line either. The payment has to be made on the spot and it has to be a barter- the bee has taken the nector and pollinates the flowers. This is ultimate example of blind dating.

Static charge

Filling up a bean bag is a challenge. The small styrofoam balls tend to get static in the short distance they cover from the plastic bag to bean bag. Any balls that fall out tend to float around the house for days.

Ronin is my favourite Robert Deniro movie and I love some of the lines in that movi like the one above and another one is "'Whenever there is a doubt, there is no doubt'. That is the first thing they teach you."

Are you going to mix drinks?

Are you going to mix drinks?

Is it bad to mix my drinks? Of course it is bad to have a whisky if you had a couple of tequila shots before that, a vodka before that, a little wine before that, some bourbon before that, a little rum before that and a few beers before that. Because you already are pretty drunk by now.

Dozens of beer bottles started their journeys the same way and continued on the same path till the time they got to my refrigeraor.

A courtful of Alcoholics

"A purveyor to the Russian Imeprial Court". A common thing to see on the bottles of Alcohols is Royal endorsements. Bottles of whiskies, just like this bottle of Smirnoff Vodka boast about being patronised by the royal courts.

Vodka - To see it for what it is

A Vodka can be produced anywhere in the world and can be made using literally dozens of things - you can use potatoes, grains, beet. Hell, in US people make vodkas using ethanol bought in bulk from agricultural and industrial giants.

No, not Russian. Not anymore

No, not Russian. Not anymore

What image comes to mind when you thing of a Vodka? No matter what else you think about, I am sure Russia comes to everyone's mind. But is it right?

What makes the Diwali Happy

What makes the Diwali "Happy"

I am not going to discuss how other sources of pollution are so many times more harmful than fireworks... how diwali smoke is not even of fraction of what some people may want us to believe.

Please stop making me feel like an environmental terrorist!

Since my childhood fireworks and crackers have been an integral part of Diwali just like it for Chinese New Year or the 4th of July.

A photo-shoot involving a smashed up glass bottles is not the safest of the thing to do especially when a 9 year old kid is involved, which is unavoidable as Manu HAS to be involved in a photo-shoot if I am doing it.
