While everyone else was busy in celebrations and panting easter eggs my friends had some other plans. One of my friends got skateboard and wanted to spray paint it and the other one had covered the beer bottles with thread (real creativity I say :)). As the oldies say “do something constructive in you leisure time” sop we decided to add some colors in the otherwise boring summer afternoon. Creative juices flowing inside everyone and flooding our Sunday. As I got new DSLR I was too much excited to capture this whole experience, The Making of Creative Sunday :).
The used beer bottles after wrapped with thread. Looking more useful now 😉
After lotsa efforts finally we got the spray paints.
Skateboard is ready for some random creativity after the base coat.
Sometimes scarcity of resources leads to new ideas. We used thread to draw lines.
Add some more lines.
Guys are pouring their heart in it. Can’t you see?
Hmmm….still something is missing.
How about some graffiti?
And here’s the masterpiece….
All set to flaunt 😉
Place: Cape Town, South Africa… On our way to Chapman’s Peak
Camera: My Nokia E5 mobile, 5 Mega Pixel
A little funky, absolutely hip-hop, always in a limelight and so comfortable. My hip-hop shoes. They are so cool and even after 2 years are absolutely IN. Wherever they go (and eventually take me along) catch everyone’s eye and I get constant appreciation for my choice.
Well to be honest it wasn’t my choice. I usually don’t feel comfortable wearing funky things, that isn’t my style. So I was very reluctant while buying these shoes but my friend and the salesman forced me to buy these. Still I wasn’t very sure and was thinking with what kind of cloths and colors will they go. For initial few months I hardly wore them. And now I just find reasons to flaunt them. Why not? They are so cool and always put me in limelight. People always ask me from where did I buy them? And I feel a little proud for making this decision :).
The coolest thing about my hip-hop shoes are the faces drawn over them (which are sadly getting fade away with every wash) and ya the green fluorescent laces :).
I get feel of being a hip-hopper and believe me whenever I wear them I start tapping my feet. No matter in what state of mind I am they always lift my mood. They are so special to me; something which I can preserve for lifetime.
When I created my account on WordPress (with a help of a friend) I never thought that I would be so consistent and I would meet so many wonderful people who’ll leave mark in my life forever. So I thought I can start with this series “People behind words and lenses” dedicated to all those lovely people I met here and it has to start with the first among those wonderful people…”Kam“.
It wouldn’t have been possible for me without his continuous support and motivation to improve and write more and more. He not only liked my posts but wrote longer than my post comments ;). (Kam..you can still write long comments unless WordPress has word count limit :)).
Then on one fine day he honored me by making me editor of his blog. But who am I to edit his blog? or for that matter anyone else’s work. The words we write here are not just words but they are our feelings and experiences which the person has lived. Who am I to change that? But I accepted the responsibility as he insisted.
Then he extended friendship by lending me his all new DSLR…oh I was so touched with his kind gesture! Who would do that for a person he/she haven’t even seen but he’s that kind. It helped me not only explore places but explore my new found interest in photography and today I have my own DSLR…Thanks Kam and I really mean it 🙂 We all met on one evening for the first time to collect camera. That day I came to know that his real name isn’t Kam…it’s Shahi. But I still prefer calling him Kam as all my memories are related with Kam and I don’t wish to Edit it ;).
