First of all my big Hola to all the peeps of the Fabulous world and a big THANKS to all you Fabulous people who have appreciated my photography, although the camera and the model herself gets 90% of the job done. I am here to give you a sneak peak from behind the scenes. Although there is nothing that you guys don’t already know 'coz Mrs. Fabulous is the great expressionista and has pretty much told you about everything that transpires in our sweet little world. Still here is my take on what happens in the making of this Fabulous Blog. Here are a couple of sample situations that you may witness if you were invisibly there with us and could somehow manage to mind read :P
A usual weekend.
We are about to go for a movie, which starts in 15 minutes.
Tanvi – Shall we take some pictures before we leave ?
[Ashish *thinking* – Really? Now??..but we have only 15 minutes left for crying out loud and then there’s that line for the popcorn. ]
Ashish – Do you wanna take pictures after the movie ?
Tanvi – No then my hair will all look weird (meaning you better do it now)
[Ashish *thinking* – O.o..let’s play a different angle]
Ashish – May be we can take some (quick) pictures in front of our apartment. I really like this setting.
Tanvi – No this setting is so boring (meaning I know all your angles Mister)
[Ashish *thinking* – Let’s try this one more time...]
Ashish – But we have only 15 minutes before the movie starts
Tanvi (all sad) – Ok then lets forget about clicking the pictures all together
Ashish (all melted) – Forget the movie..let’s do the photoshoot
... And Tanvi smiles again. We hunt for a decent backdrop..click pictures and obviously we also make it to the movie on time.
Moral of the story –
In Vegas the house always wins. But at house, 'the wife' always wins ;-)
One day at the Mall.
*Imagine Tanvi as a little kid who has just arrived in Disney World*
Tanvi - How does this look?
Ashish – Very nice.
Tanvi – But I don’t need it.
Ashish – But you don’t have this color.
Tanvi - But I have lots of clothes / shoes.
Ashish – True..but I think it is really good.
Tanvi – Really ??
Ashish – Yup..It’s looking so good on you. Why don’t you try it on and I will click a picture with the phone and show it to you how you look.
[The lady working in the store gives me that stare – Dude you are stealing all my lines]
Tanvi – Hmm...ok let me think about it some more.
Ashish - What’s there to think about it. Let’s just buy it. In fact I think it will be a crime not to buy this at this price.
Tanvi – O.K. (wide grin… :D :D)
[Ashish *thinking* – Those double dees (grin) made it totally worth every penny]
Moral of the story –
Little things in life can surely buy happiness if you put your Mastercard to good use :P
My reason of showcasing these situations (apart from showing you that I am not that goody too shoes) is that these are not just one of a mill instances but our day to day happenings. So as you may see the blogging has become an essential part of our lives because the blog is kind of an inspiration for us to try new different things. For example, we go look for different locales, we go out shopping, we dress and go for dinners and lunches…and so on. Since we are away from family in a Far Far Away Land, I am actually impressed and very glad that Mrs. Fab has found this medium to let her creativity and expressiveness flow. She is like a river which yearns to find her course and in the process makes everything that she touches beautiful. Also, she has made so many friends in you guys that it is very impressive. I am also amazed by the kind of camaraderie that all you peeps share and motivate each other.
So before I sign off, I the Blogger’s husband take this moment to salute all you Fabulous Bloggers out there. Hope you girls will keep blogging and keep us (husbands/fiancée/partners) in business as your part time photographers. So long!
And ... in 30 for 30 so far ...
