(E)Pic Pause


Cricketers are lucky. Apart from other things, they don't have to pose as if playing a shot and prompt someone to click them in that pose. In fact, they don't ever have to tell the photographers when to click. And the latter also never have to tell the cricketers when they'll click a shot.

Today's Holi and I was trying to click a few pictures of the action. I observed that a lot of action was so frequently punctuated (even punctured). Hardly anything happens before people start posing for pics. And more pics. And yet more.

Moving aimlessly looks foolish surely :) but photography without intense action is futile too.

Photographs are not stories, even though they might be equal to a 1000 words. But what we are looking for is an equality of 1000 great words woven rivettingly. Great stories are borne out of great efforts. Monumental efforts. Monumental efforts fetch their words automatically. A body that's gone through some intense action will automatically recount the story as vividly as the recounter desires, irrespective of the photographic prompts.

*The above is a randomly clicked picture on 27th March '13. The post doesn't specifically talk about those posing in this particular picture. :)

An experiment of sorts, it's got good result. Let me call this the short-term dynamics and the dominance of 'baser' instincts. Rest you can infer.

Have a great Monday!

David Damron on filling time

Just a few moments back I read this guest post by David Damron (of The Minimalist Path) on ZenHabits. Fantastic read. Simple to apply and see the result for yourself. So, am publishing the same post here. Spread the message far and wide (for it is mighty important) :).

In the post below, forget the word Materialism. It isn't such a 'spiritual' lesson after all; though it could be if you want to take it that way. My point is it might just help you to set some worthy goals for yourself.
