For this lazy Sunday I once again post a picture I clicked at Dilli Haat. Once again it is the colorful necklaces that are on display. I hardly ever wear one, so I never buy one, but clicking them is always a high priority! You get such a variety of necklaces on display that you are spoiled for choice! And not only necklaces, the whole place is full of colorful artifacts! When I get a feeling of being cooped up in the city without getting an opportunity to go out, I just hop over to Dilli Haat.
This time as soon as we entered Chhavi asked for mehndi (henna) on her hand. After a very long time I too got mehndi on one hand! With a kid and mehndi on one hand, the trip was great fun indeed.
I was so happy that I was not carrying my SLR but Seshadri’s point and shoot. I could easily click this picture with henna on one hand! I actually started using point and shoot when I took Chhavi out just by myself recently.
I am in no way going to trade my love for anything. There is no substitute for a SLR for taking certain type of pictures, But with Chhavi around those pictures are simply not happening. Handling a child and a DSLR together becomes too overwhelming for me! If I concentrate on the shot I am scared that the kid will run away someplace. If I concentrate on the kid, the DLSR is just a dead weight around my neck! So, I am thinking of using a point and shoot more and more when I take her out on a local trip.
Now the question is whether to buy a point and shoot or to just keep pinching Seshadri’s camera?
I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. I renamed it Travel Tales from India & Abroad in 2016. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video. I was recently featured on Via.com
I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
