My two best friends - the Devil and the Scarecrow- got hitched on the 20th. I had my work cut out as the Devil's appointed photographer. She is a pretty little Devil but with the Scarecrow by her side, she looked her evil best. ;-) She'd promised to smile for my camera ONLY and since she broke her word, it's perhaps a good time to tell her that i was bumping beers with the Scarecrow groom until 3:00 am, just hours before the wedding. :D
I wish the very best for them. I hope they like the photographs.
The magazine (Balyam Kosam) which was to print a photograph i'd shot has its latest issue in print with the photograph on the front page. Another magazine (Transmission Lines) has requested a travelogue with photographs. Transmission Lines has already printed a couple of book reviews i've written on "My Temporary Son" and "Maus". These magazines have small readership/circulation; nonetheless it's exciting to see your work and name in print. It's a different high. :-)
I donated blood yesterday. While i lay on the bed thinking random thoughts and playing with numbers as is my wont, i gave myself a new goal in life. I want to donate blood for the 50th time on my 50th birthday. Counting down from... 47... :-)
