of stupefication and stupefixation

You know how uneasy I was yesterday about how I had been feeling since mister left? Someone at work told me today that these feelings are a bit like a fever. You obviously don’t like it but it’s like your body is trying to fight an infection – so it’s basically a good thing because the only way to get better is to stay sick.

Holy Frankenfuck!

I was stupefied at how silly she sounded and how much she rambled, but I think her basic point was that I should just suck it up coz life isn’t really fair and to whine about your own whining is, well, retarded and pointless.

So I decided to just whine when I feel like it and not beat myself up about it. And then I decided to take up a new fixxation – something I can completely immerse myself in while I can’t indulge in my original obsession.

I have been toying with the idea of taking up Samba lessons for a while now, but no dance school in Delhi teaches it. (Why the fuck not?) Did I tell you that dance is my favorite art form?

Photography is a close second and an obvious intuitive choice.

(Okay, there might have been a nudge or two from Michelle and Indian Girl in that direction, but in my defense I bought the camera first!)

Anyway, enough said. I clicked these pics today. They’re nothing like the amazing stuff Michelle does with her camera, but I hope you like them!

Meet Sugar. She's a crossbred. Mister adopted her six years ago. Btw, I hate it when people buy fancy high-bred dogs. Why not give these strays a home?

A flower in the temple. In case you didn't know, Indians usually have a small temple inside their homes where they house deities. Also, FYI - I am not an idol worshipper. Mom is!

Flowers in our balcony. At this point I had learned to play with the focus.

The same flower captured at night. Like an hour ago!

As you can probably tell, I have (ab)used a DSLR before, but since I can’t focus with my mind, I shall learn to do it with a camera!

      1. There was a story here recently that a hunter put 9 recently born puppies in a box in the woods to lure coyotes there so he could hunt. Awful! Someone found them and now they are all safe and in new homes.

  1. Oh A! I’m so honored to sit on this page with you.
    Your photos are divine! (Do you like your new camera??)
    My favorites were the marigold and the candles and the lone flower and the pooch and the books!
    I just love you…but, you already knew that 😉

    1. Actually, I’ve been guilty of that too!

      I had a Nikon when I was married to my ex, and I only ever used it in auto mode. I wanted to learn, but the user interface was just so confusing! Canon, on the other hand, is fairly intuitive, so I’m feeling good about exploring on my own!

      Maybe Simba is facing the same challenge. Which camera does he have?
