Joblessness and Craziness at an all time High!

The photography bhooooth had got into me for the past couple of days.. (just managed to shoo it off 2day! phew!)

More than the raw eccentricity found in abundance in me, it was the joblessness created by the department’s power cuts and network shutdowns that lead to this craziness! So, its not really fair to blame me for this. . Its the Electricity Board and the server that lead to this.

Night 1 :

What really can I do if the whole floor is enveloped by darkness.. AND.. the LAN is down? No MATLAB experiments, no Wiki site management, no reading papers, no checking if the camera-ready paper is in an acceptable format, no blog reading! Phew. . How my world is entwined with the thing called LAN!! 😛 (If you suggest that I could *think*, or finish writing that paper which I’v been writing for ages now, or jus go back to the hostel and sleep.. Folks. .Pls do remember that I dont understand such logic! )

Well. . Take the camera out, a few glassy things, break apart a glass-bead necklace, use the cell-phone’s smart flash light . . and go clicking 🙂

Night 2 :

Come to lab. . No network connectivity yet :-/

Collect the essentials (read : all that used last night) and go to room..

Now, Debo’s Bday has been more perfect than I realized. . All those gifts and prettily wrapped chocolates mean. .

Yes. . I can click a few more crazy pictures 😀

Well. . I see that using the correct intensity of flash DOES give nice shots

But when the Flash doesnt fetch some effects, a torch at hand is always useful ;)

Day 3 :

Get up in the morning(yes. .for a change!), go to lab . .No network connectivity YET!! x-(

Go back to the hostel. . Use whatever object is in sight and continue the frenzied clicking!

How did I forget that piece of mirror last night? :)

Night 3 :

After sleeping and clicking for 2 days/nights, try going to lab again..

Yeaaaah!! Though the power is oscillating between present and absent at a high frequency, somehow, I can connect to the world!!

Amidst reading up and trying a few things with the simulator, write up the pending blog posts 😉

P.S. Me suddenly thinks photography is more addicting than research. . Immediate gratification. What u folks say? :-/

… Place it with whatever object is in reach and Click
