still life

a life within the stillness. A Lockdown series

My room, my windows, my home, my belongings… everything belongs to me, but I see my outside world through these acquaintance. I feel its look like  an opening for, to be practice the life, or returning to the future. Few still-life photography exercises during this lockdown in my Pushp Vihar home. I am not hired to work, no work for me, that was the instinct frustrate me in the beginning. But why one think always that way, there is nothing to do? even I did think as lost, but I realised soon that way I will be an idiot. I restarted my work. Started seeing objects around and arranging the objects. Most of those objects like flower, dry leaves, vegetables, toys, vases, bottles and many more. Setting it up on a particular spot  at a particular time for the available lighting. sometime I use the water droplets from the spray bottle, using the smoke coming from the agarbathi (a mosquito repeller ), made as backdrops. Great fun and so satisfying. No complaints of no job, no salary, worries about dues, no harassment. No HR lobbying….
