Modelling!

I seem to be doing so much these days. I have been travelling quite a bit in the last week. Oh, nowhere far, just to and from home for some important work. I was home two days ago. The best part was that I got to do some modelling!

Its not what you think. I will not be on the cover of any magazine and definitely not on television, never been into that sort of thing. We have this family friend, distantly related, who is an excellent photographer. He has this new Sony dika (check San Nakji's blog for this word! Thats Korean for digital camera, he says) with amazing features. He wanted me to be his muse for the day and having nothing better to do, i thought it would be fun and agreed. It was fun to pose this way and that, look at the right side, tilt my head just so, smile, but not too much.... I realised that it must be hard work for models to this every day.

Anyway, he took some amazing pictures. With complete immodesty, let me tell you people, I never knew I could look so good. The play of light and shade was great and I saw practically all that we had learnt in Photo Journalism class last year. I got him to take a picture of my eye that turned out to be superb. We saw the magnified version and could see the image of my house in my retina! The power of technology!

I had written in Kannada Unicode but you will need Windows XP to view it. Here is the english equivalent of what I wrote in Kannada.
