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?

Hmmm…. Chavi slowly seems to be transforming you. Now you agreed to put Mehendi on one hand. Aage aage dekhiye hota hai ya…;)
Colourful Photo as usual…
Ha ha let us see when it gets down to a lipstick!
That is what I was wondering..Mridula and necklace! How come! Ok for a change, such girlish/feminine stuff looks good globetrotter 🙂 And even I dont like applying henna because I dont like the so called fragrance. Henna when applied, definitely looks good though!
Shilpi I only photograph necklaces but I don’t wear them. 😀
Those necklaces look lovely.
Thank you Shalu.
Beautiful photo of colourful necklaces. I have never tried this type of necklaces, and I always wonder how people carry them. 🙂 And yes I also like putting mehendi on my hands but it is very rare.
Deepa I like clicking them more than wearing them!
What a colorful display!
I love beaded necklaces !
Thank you Najm.
Hi, this is such a delight, especially because I am a born Jewellerista 🙂 But, am in Chennai now so longing for these .. awesome!
Thank you Lakshmi.
Nice necklaces. I had a point and shoot until a couple of months ago, and I carry it everywhere. The DSLR is reserved for trips and special occasions.
A.H. I guess I will also fall into the same pattern!
