It is shocking how much junk I collected over a period of two years. I am shifting to a new building of my company, and was packing the stuff I have littered around my desk and in the shelf. It took me the better part of my morning just to go through my stuff, discard the useless, and keep the useful things.
The major perk of my job – the view that I see from my desk – will vanish :( I just have to stand and I can see the entire expanse of Hi-Tech City (Madhapur, Kukkatpally, Kondapur) till the eyes rest on the horizon. I always thought of capturing an aircraft flying overhead. The cloud formations that materialize over Hyderabad provide brilliant opportunities to have a great shot of an aircraft against the sky and the clouds. I was always some seconds late in getting the camera out of the bag, and framing the plane against the clouds. Although I did shoot many photographs from this place – my personal favourite is this.
But why am I writing about photography, when the major pain right now is packing and shifting. Reminds me of all packing I have done till now to shift rooms/flats. Sometimes it used to be easy, spread some chadars, dump everything in them, make a bundle, and move. Right now I am going through all the papers, re-viewing all my credit card and phone bills (damn! they are high).
This is one post that resulted because of the need to write, not because there was any content. As Rama put it eloquently –
“I feel like writing without the idea of what to write. There is nothing concrete that I want to say, nothing I want to narrate. But I feel I have to write (type rather) and so I do.”
