PHOTOSHOP ART- A NEW RAGE

Back as a kid, there was this art gallery that we used to go to when kins used to visit us. You know, those tourist guide sessions! I could never really comprehend some of the paintings. And I remember trying hard to decode them during the night! It always amazed me how deep an artist’s mind can dive into. How deep can a human mind think of.  I have always believed that one’s mind can reach the void- where nothing else can ever be present. Isn’t it beautiful how limitless one can be and one can think of. Coming to digital art, I follow a couple of digital artists including Michael Oswald who transforms real women into crazy illusions. Photoshop art aka digital art is truly a new rage.

THE GIRL THAT USED TO BE

With mud between her fingers, the girl hummed away

Tall heights and war wounds

Never imagined a pink bedroom full of barbie dolls

In the scorching sun with messy hair, the girl hummed away

Baby sat bees and lizards

Never attempted to walk in mommy’s high heels

IN THE SHOES OF A BLOGGER

The Velvet Radio, Shivani Boruah, Northeast, assam, Blogger, bangalore, Black and White, Monochrome, Photography, India

DUHH! So, Shivani Boruah aka The Velvet Radio is out of topics. How lame! She can’t blabber about anything else and got this inconsequential topic on one of the easiest things of the lot- being a blogger! Well! As easy as it may seem, blogging is a tough job dude. Content, photography and then investing on your wardrobe, that’s a darn tough job! It definitely appears to be one of the easiest lives- “So, what do you do? Wear new and nice clothes and pose for the camera!” Nope. That ain’t all.

MY FIRST 2- PAGES SPREAD ON A MAGAZINE : DUSSEHRA EDIT

JUNE 2017. I was home for the longest span of time in 4 years. Explored many things. About people, a few places and myself. One thing I realized (about myself) was the vision that I have with respect to my blog. Where does it stand now and where do I want it to stand in the days to come. Whether I am able to live up to the marks or not, I have always believed in having a vision in whatever I do. Many things took place. Some good and a bunch of bad! Actually, the latter outshadowed the former.

MY AFFAIR WITH MOROCCO

White Crop Top, Denims and Red Booties : ZARA, Satin Navy/ Red Robe : Forever21

While scrolling down some of the pins in pinterest, apart from the creative photography ones which I usually save for inspiration, I came across the satin robes as streetstyle. After last year’s pyjama trend and athleisure storming the charts, this year, it’s all about the night suits and bedroom gowns on the streets. Upon researching about the trend I could come to the conclusion how with every passing year people are accepting comfortable clothing above everything else. Back in the day, wearing our night suits in the daylight would have seemed very impermissible. Same goes for the bedroom robes. Upon scrutinizing the robes thoroughly, I could somehow relate these satin robes to the DJELLABA donned by the ladies of morocco.

BOX OF LIES

The Velvet Radio, Monsoon, GUM BOOTS, RAIN, Northeast, assam, Bangalore, Blogger

This was the third time I collaborated with this talented photographer, Subham, to work on a monsoon visual. After multiple conversations we came to the conclusion of having an early morning shoot. These days due to frequent rain in Bangalore, early morning shoot wasn’t really possible. To add to our dismay, there exists the in availability of cabs, which is an unavoidable concern during rainy days! Location scouting has become another problem in the city and most of the times we are left with the café ‘s and the streets. Then the idea of the newly constructed football ground near my residence came to mind. But gum boots on the football ground? Well, aren’t we anyway living in a box of lies?

NO ROOM FOR THE BLUES

NO ROOM FOR THE BLUES.

Basically I knew what I wanted to write in this post but just that after having a look at SMALLTOWNBLOGGER ‘s stories the night before, my decision grew stronger. I was being a little skeptical in the beginning as it is going to be a dark one. DARKER for a handful few. With this post, I want to declare that I AM BACK! Not to anyone but myself. My inner self with whom I have been struggling with for some time. For quiet some time.  Shall we say hello, BLUES?

THE LOCAL TRAIN | WINNER of Season 1 SENNHEISER TOP 50

A few days back, the bassist of my ex- band CMajor3Minor, who call themselves CYPHER now, has shared the link to the latest song KHUDI of THE LOCAL TRAIN, the winner of the first season of the Sennheiser Top 50. That was a song which kept buzzing on my head for quiet sometime and then one fine morning I got an e- mail from SENNHEISER to write a blogpost on the SEASON 3 TOP 50. Last year’s finalé was one riot of a live performance and this e- mail meant free pass to a great evening filled with alluring performances by some of the really good bands of the country and also catching up with many aspiring musicians and music enthusiasts.

Making Amazing Memories with MAX FASHIONS

Green. Green is an evergreen colour. And with a little twist to green- the camouflage or in common terms the army print, has made a huge comeback this season. It won’t be wrong to say that there is hardly anybody who doesn’t like this colour. Green signifies freshness, energy, nature and peace. By taking inspiration from the same military green colour- MAX FASHIONS has launched its latest Autumn Collection called ENDLESS JOURNEY. To promote the same, MAX has initiated a campaign last weekend known as ‘MAKE AMAZING MEMORIES’ and it was really heart warming to be a part of it.

THINK PINK

The Velvet Radio, Shivani Boruah, Pink, Think Pink

PINK! The colour and the artist, both have my heart. From Balenciaga’s campaign to the likes of Celine, pink made a bold statement this year at the runways and the streets. Pink in a millenial shades- fuschia to baby pink, darker hues to metallic shades, was seen taking the limelight. And I was talking about how much I  love the song TRY !
