Today’s Consumer

Today’s is the information world, where information is the key to success. If you are not updated with the latest, chances are you will be left behind and eventually be at a loss. Take for instance today’s consumer, the subject of this post. Everyday we, the consumers, are literally strafed with a barrage of advertisements, recommended products, you-may-also-like, customers-who-purchased-this-also-purchased, deals, discount coupons…ad infinitum! Tough this information overload may seem useful what it does is actually confound us. 😦

Here is one such confounded and confused consumer…

Is That A Bird?

Saturday morning I and Samarth were playing in the living room. Suddenly I descried a bird, probably a Brown Thrasher, outside in the yard. A peculiar thing about it was that it was dead still. This piqued my curiosity. I thought probably it is about to peck out an insect or something. So holding my breath I awaited there anticipating action.

Forget about action, there was not even any movement for long time. Suspecting something was amiss I decided to have a “closer look”. I pulled out my camera and zoomed all the way. To my utter dismay I found out that it was not a bird afterall. It was just a bunch of withered leaves which looked like a bird from a distance. 😦

The Girl Hanging From Ropes

In the recent years there have been a slew of books and movies with titles which begin with ‘The Girl‘. For example, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Girl From The Train, The Girl On The Train, The Girl Who Farted In the Rat’s Face…(ok, I made up the last one). However, what is not made up is the photograph below. I captured this exposure during the summer of 2016 at one of Perrysburg downtown street festival.
