My New Curtains

>> New Curtains  

Since ages was thinking about making something for my room. Then finally thought of creating a brand new curtain for my windows. Transparent, leaves falling and in light color to let in more light. :)

Drawing the Pattern
Bought appropriate fabrics for it and started on my work :) ......
Everyday I did little work to complete it by Deepawali...but the idea and process what I choose was much time taken. Spreading out the fabric, making out patterns, cutting leaves from satin cloth and so on. I even burned the sides of the satin leaves with candle fire as they were difficult to stitch and then they were sewed to the organdy fabric of cream color. It took me around around one month to complete it. Of course it was not done everyday nor was I worked on regular basis. After much effort it was finally completed, borders stitched and woah it looked like one bought from a store.


Materials


I loved my work :) Quite impressed with the effort ^_^
Cutting and Setting the pattern
Hanging over the windows it gave the effects of leaves falling by. I made a tree trunk stuck on one upper wall and painted few more leaves on the side walls to complete the effect. :)

The beautiful satin leaves

Stitching the leaf on the fabric









See how it looks :) ...

The final output :) I found it very beautiful <3


Have added some leaves on the wall for the effect of complete falling leaves :

A Radio Interview :D :)


Hey I had an interview as a Photographer on radio on Big 92.7 FM today :)

Thanx to RJ Rajiv who was cool enuf to call me :)

It all started with a fren request in Facebook reminding me that we were friends in Orkut (another Social Networking Service). I remembered him as a RJ long time back and then he asked if I would like to talk on Radio on photography. I was like 'What me!' 'Are you Kidding' 'I'm shit scarred' :P But then we finally fixed a time to have the interview.

Saturday around 3.30.

There I was in time with Udayan which meant another photographer to be interviewed. I actually thought him to be interviewed next time, but then we made it together :D

After a little chit chat with the RJ, and some sense nonsense talks, we were into the recording studio from where he was heard to the masses. We were given Mikes over our faces and then very casually asked questions. He was sounding low and me high...and hearing my voice back, I hated it but laughed at it :P

Were interviewed like how we started on Photography, what we liked to photograph, what we have for enthusiastic photographers and some more about it. :)

We even repeated some of our lines that went gibberish :D we were still scared :P But it was all fun too.

RJ Ranjiv was cool for our mistakes too :P that made things easy. But seriously voicing for radio even when people don't see you isn't a easy task. take my words. :/

Hats off to people who made made it in the Radio world.

Our interview was over, quickly edited and was about to be played live. We didn't really know whom to ask in our friends circle to hear us so we had a friendly chat with RJ Ranjiv, made a goodbye and came down to listen to ourselves.

we switched to the channel, waited to hear us. We knew we have messed it and now didn't wanted to hear out of embarrassment. Still with excitement and forgiving us as it was our first time on Radio we listened to ourselves. Not bad I would say :)


Thankyou Rajiv, your one amazing person. Overall it was a nice experience :)
