My name is Muthu. Been a photography enthusiast for long. Took sometime to overcome the inertia that held down my trigger finger. I am not inclined towards doing a thematic photography project, since, to do a thematic project you have to be disciplined. If you are disciplined, then it feels like work. Heck, I took to photography to break away from work! So I shoot anything and everything that interests me.
I currently use a Kodak CX7430 and an imaginary Nikon D70 (occasionally a Canon EOS 20D) for all my photographic work.
Apart from photography, I read quite a lot. My interests in reading span P.G. Wodehouse to Simon Singh's Fermat's Enigma. If it is good and I can get my hands on it, then I read it.
Music, listen to a wide variety of it. Favorites are Aar Paar, Mr. and Mrs. 55 , hits of Kishore Kumar, Mohd. Rafi, Nina Rota's Godfather. I also listen to western classical music (can't say an adagio from a stoccata, but I like the rhythm and harmony), Pandit Ravi Shankar, Pink Floyd, L. Subramaniam, Eagles, Yanni, Yo-Yo Ma, film music of Ilayaraja and A. R. Rahman among others. Tend to incline more towards mellow instrumental music. Also am interested in listening to folk music from different parts of the World.
Two things that I want to do 1. Learn to play a musical instrument 2. Learn to speak atleast two mainland European languages (Italian and German / Italian and French).
Love to travel far and wide, but the size of the hole in my pocket increases in direct proportion to the distance I am from home.
I keep myself busy, for I strongly believe in that...what is that...er...yeah, that workshop proverb.
I live and work in Boston.
