A new theme of Photo A Day Experiment (PADE) is upon us and it is not something usual. I had to rack my brains to come up with something I thought might be different, interesting and yet ordinary! Tools – I had imagined a perfect photo of my cutlery or cooking spoons because what else can represent the Tools of a foodie?
I had to drop that idea when I saw the condition of my kitchen “Tools”. In a DSLR, the scratches were too distracting and the story could not have been told properly. So I moved my attention to my stationery! I had chewed the rear ends of my pens and pencils in moments of confusion and contemplation making them another bad subject for my “Tools” interpretation.
PADE Day 12 – Tools
A light bulb went on and I saw my laptop sitting proudly on my table. Hello, what can be a better representation of tools than the gadgets of a blogger/website owner?
These are the things that lie around me every single day since I became a blogger. This is not always how tidy my desk looks on most days though!
Laptop is for actual blogging, iPad is for company (and mini breaks aka distractions), a cute mouse pad and a cute mouse (because a girl needs cute things for inspiration), a wrist rest (to keep my hands in a comfortable position, besides it feels royal), my phone (another necessity (which interrupts my genius ideas midway), a notebook and pen (to jot down the million dollar ideas) and finally my Camera (because I like to pretend to be a photographer sometimes)
Photo Perspective: Shot with my DSLR Nikon D7100 in Landscape mode. A bit of editing in Picasa for a presentable end result!
