Happy New Year 2015
A little more of the same for you this year as well.
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.
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."
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 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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
This is my first attempt at smoke photography and it happened by accident.
