I’ll be gone for a good one month – for attending a full time month-long course on Photography in Pune. Chances are I’ll not be able to even look here!
No weekly offs – not even on Sundays… plus, the time is from 10 in the morning to 6 in the evening, and I might be staying on campus 24×7. If that happens, (which I so much wish it doesn’t) I’m totally offline for one month starting 1 March.
If not, i.e. if I can arrange for staying somewhere else (and not in the hostel) I’ll be on and off every once in a while… so no worries :)
Soon, the old (current) Harshad who photographs just for sheer fun will be transforming into one who enjoys what he does, and even gets paid for that. The final plunge into the career of photography is about to be made… so keep watching!
Wish me luck!
Three days ago, the temperature was hot. The air started getting cooler and today after a stormy evening, it started raining heavily around nine. Its still raining accompanied by some rather loud lightning bolts. The lights, as usual are out. Everyone else is sleeping and i am thinking of ways to discharge my cellphone battery.. Hence this post. The phone that i use for internet is busted again. Blah! Other than that, life is cool. Hmm.. I guess i should conserve it.. If incase the lights dont come on till late tomorrow. Good night world.
Everything I percieve, feel, think… seems mixed up right now. Not totally, or maybe… well frankly, I don’t know!
I’ve been contemplating on a few major changes… like getting a more ‘real’ job, than to work for 3 days (when I’m in Ahmednagar) and study for the 3 days that I spend in Pune. I’ll probably move to Pune, stay there, find a job that lets me study and practice photography. Heck! I’ll be looking for a photography job with highest priority!
Then comes in the decision about relationships… I’m glad that I’ve loved and lost, than never to have loved at all… but is it the end of it? Through the past few months, I have let the pain percolate from my heart out into the nature, through music, images, sighs and tears. Prayer has helped me be the same Harshad that once was – cheerful and happy, optimistic and enthusiastic about the future. I’m looking forward to even better days than these… because life just keeps getting better all the time!!!
I sometimes don’t know how to make sense of all the emotions I have inside me. Talking to Nature helps me… we don’t converse with nature in words… but with touch, feel the soft breeze, the chill in the air, the fur on your pet… and give back the touch. We converse through images… things that we see, stuff we create in our head. I usually point the camera at nature in general, and it speaks to me through the lens.
Indeed, photography is taking over my senses! It is becoming as important and as natural as breathing, step by step. I am glad to be ‘under the influence’ of beauty. Beauty in images, everything we see is beautiful!
I’m a little worried because I feel like I’m ‘moving on’ to photography from programming… something that I still enjoy and love to spend my time at. At least I’m still a geek, thanks to digital medium, I’m just as much wired as I was before :)
Well, I’m not even sure I should be blurting all this! Heh, I hope not many read this… and if you are (of course you are!) reading this, just take it as a few passing thoughts that I put into writing… and move on. Because I’m not stopping here… neither should you!
