Exhibit no 6



The image of the girl on the beach turned out to be too distorted.

Exhibit 5:




I really regret sending this to the museum, the only glitch was it wouldn't fill the whole space of the header.

Sleepwalking Exhibit 4: Dancing Woman

TREE STORY: Sleepwalking banner: Exhibit 3



This one looked so dull on the header, I had to banish all thoughts of including it.

Sleepwalking Banner Festival: Exhibit 2: Too Hot?

(click image for large size view)
At first glance it seemed an innocent banner to make, (spread a hug). But on the header, it looked..er..erotic, not that it embarrassed me, but then, didn't want readers to see the blog as a sexy image gallery. So, there it lies in the museum.

Sleepwalking Stories Banner festival

Here is a post by post display of some of the banners I made for the blog, those which haven't been used due to technical problems.

I almost say to my co-prisoner

When she says,
"CAN I LEAVE?"
I almost say,
"AND NEVER COME BACK?"


She has sprinkles of
Coloured gold on her dress
I almost say,
" DO THEY GLOW IN THE DARK?"

Wandercloud at Osho Garden




It is priceless to have a five-day week with Sunday and MONDAY as the unshackled days. As you must have noticed, especially Monday. So on Monday I joined Wandercloud for a noon show of American Gangster and a walk at Osho Garden as we had nothing much to do.
Wandercloud is a carefree floating cloud, with a heart of a travelling gypsy.



AMERICAN GANGSTER: Decent Cinema


American Gangster
Directed by Ridley Scott
Main Cast: Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe, Cuba Gooding Jr.

Forget all other Scott movies, but the pattern remains. The opening scene rests on shock value, kerosene or gasoline raining down on a man before he is set on fire and shot by Frank Lucas (Denzel), an assistant to a drug lord who rises to power in the drug supply market. On the other side, Ritchie (Russell) is probably the only honest cop in town. The main protagonists clash as Ritchie attempts to bring down Frank's drug empire. Based on a true story, the film is engaging for the most part, despite having a cop versus gangster concept that we have viewed so many times before. The two main characters are largely responsible for lifting the film out of its tried and tested ground to make it interesting cinema.

Dog Story:T-shirt design



This is a photo taken in December 2007 by a friend, at a little accidental public playground in Pune, which is a rare sight itself. I was a free bird then, along with another free bird, and the friend had written in the subject line- two dogs on four legs with two unemployed dogs on two legs.
This photo carries only the puppy. Thinking hard. Bow wow to that...
