Lights Out!

Well, first of all today there was some sort of electrical malfunctioning in the... Electrical stuff... Whatever. The main thing is that we didn't have power in our house for a full seven hours. Sure I've been through seven our power cuts before, but this was especially bad. For one, it's summer here in Jaipur, not so good even if there is power. But the heat (40 degrees Celsius, anyone? Plus an unusual onslaught of humidity.) was just deadly today. On top of that, I had a headache from staring at a computer screen for too long, working on a particularly difficult job. Not a day to remember so far.But things got better. As evening came, the temperature cooled down, and so did my head ache. But the power was still off. And as it got darker, every one in the family went out to sit on the terrace, since it was so much more cooler outside. That's where I got inspired, there was no electrical light, so I wanted to see how I could change it up to work for me. So I set the D-SLR to 15 something seconds, and used the torch to create some light. I tried a few things, and I think I might have annoyed a couple of people. I can imagine it now, "What's with this crazy teen? Walking a around in circles with that torch. And shining it on us, too!" Well, I managed to get a couple of descent pictures. I hope.

To make up for all my blabbering, I think I'll put up two photos in stead of just one like normal. :) Hope they're ok.
