Switzerland - Update


Oh, I know, I know! I've been a terrible blogger. Too obsessed with my work to update. But, you're right. I've recently had to move continents for my work. And, I love it. But, unfortunately I haven't had time to write about it. Yet. In all honesty, I don't have the connector cord to connect my camera with this silly Mac, and the SD card isn't being read on it either. For some strange, strange reason. More on that later. Maybe.

I am currently in Geneva, Schweiz at the moment. No, I am not the lead actress for a new Yash Raj Films project. Dreaming on. I am literally at the helm of international affairs. Hah! Again, dreaming on. But, I'd like to be.

I am working at the World Trade Organization. Whoopie! It's actually quite exciting. I get to sit in on meetings between countries who decide trade policies and whether or not you should be paying those extra $50 on those shoes imported from Italy, or pay $10 lesser on clothes exported from India, Bangladesh, etc. Disclaimer: the above data is a figment of my imagination. I wouldn't really tell you what they decide in there. You'll need to get in my not-so-comfortable shoes for that.

Anyway, I just wanted to come by and say Hello with a few updates from where I am at the moment. I do hope you will enjoy some of my iPhone photos lately, if you'd like to see.

Memories From England I

{Little French Stall on Brick Lane, London}

*Sigh* *London Pangs*

A friend of mine has recently been having 'London Pangs' (c). She's been missing London like crazy and in a way reminded me I have pictures I promised I'd share, which I haven't. So here we are, sharing! My trip to the UK this year was lovely. I was there with a big chunk of my family. These photos I'm sharing were part of a very memorable holiday, where I really got to show The boyfriend why I love the UK so much. Please share my joy and excitement of revisiting one my favorite places in the world. 

Photos below were taken in a plethora of locations including London, Oxford (various pubs) and Bath.

{My brave friend Anne, who was attacked by a swan} 

Not really. We had some lovely red cherries to gorge on while punting in Oxford. Mushing up the cherries made it look as though we had blood on our hands. And lo and behold a swan was near. I don't know if you've heard, but Swans are protected by the Queen. Which is why I'm holding my tongue against those, well, slightly nasty creatures. They hiss (like snakes) and peck at you, which hurts. 

{The so-called deadly Swan}

Back to our story. Which I think should be aptly titled (for lack of *any* imagination) - A little improv, clever (!) photography and lots of mushed cherries. So, as evident from the title of this story, we mushed cherries and dropped them before The Swan making it look like blood dripping from it's beak and took photos of the deadly Swan and of Anne looking slightly harassed and attacked. And her missing thumb. The End. 

Ok, I'll admit. Not a great story. Moving on.

Testing. Check! 1, 2, 3.

I always find it really funny when the electrical guys come up on stage, bump the mike loudly and say, "Chhhheck. Chhhhheck. Testing. 1, 2, 3." So, the first thing that came to my mind as I sat down to write this post was: Testing! Check! Do these pictures work?!

I'm proud and very happy to announce that I finally own a camera. A real camera. You know - the DSLR type. One that I can play around with. This is exciting as it's a big step up from me. No more grainy, noisy photos. No more taking photos early in the morning to get that perfect light. No more sitting glum on a rainy day thinking, shoot, there's no sun today, that means no photos, no posts. No Sir-ee. Not for me. Well, at least not until I figure out how to actually use this thing.

This also means that I am now on a search (hunt) for a new camera bag. And I'm thoroughly confused. So, if you've used any of these bags and have suggestions, I will gladly take them! Choices are: Ephiphanie, TheIt, Kelly Moore and Emera. If you use or have used any of these bags, please do post a comment below with your pros and cons!

Also, here are my inaugural shots. Every time there's a new camera in the family, inaugural shots have been those of my parents in their PJs. Which, we (I) decided not to scar the world with. So here you are, random shots of random things in my room. Enjoy!

LwW Loves: Brownie

Say Hello to Brownie!

My very own vintage baby. All thanks to my lovely grandma, who kept it for so many years. Only to fall into my hands. I'm really excited about Brownie. I can't wait to scrounge Old Delhi shops to find old 620 spools for this camera.

Another trick I learnt is that I can re-spool a 120 spool into the 620 spool. There's just one thing though. I need to find a 620 spool first. If anyone knows where I can find/order a *cheap* 620 spool, please let me know! I would be eternally grateful.

Though I can't take pictures from this lovely old hag, I can take pictures of her! Welcome to my new obsession.

Watch this space for un-filtered vintage-y photos!
