STOMP!

I am in a black and white flashback sort of mood, so much so that I took black and white snaps using my SLR although I loaded color film on it :p


Anyway, we went to see the STOMP yesterday at Danville. And they rocked! It's amazing how they beat out a tune using newspapers, plastic water cans, trash can lids and mops! Gosh! Almost made me want to lead a different life where I could stomp out a tune with my feet, just like they did. I really like attending artsy shows in Danville. I have seen a couple of plays at Pioneer playhouse and now the Stomp at the Norton center for arts. Of course, the Shakespeare plays at Lexington were a lot of fun too, too bad we won't have them any longer. The nice thing about the Shakespeare plays was that it was outdoors, spread out a blanket on the grass, grab some funnel cakes, relax and watch the play! I always bought one of their tshirts although I never wore them more than once :) To me it was the equivalent of an American thiruvizha or maybe one of those travelling stage drama troupes back in India...never did watch one in India, but, you get the picture?

Which brings me to this Saturday, Georgetown Kite Festival! I really hope it doesn't rain this Saturday! I guess I'll switch my SLR back to color mode, way too much color at the park to be clicking black and white photos, no matter how whimsically old-times-romantic I feel!

You are telling me no one has faced the music whenever (if at all) you have STOMPed out of the room?!

i always wondered how b&w pictures looked a tad prettier than color.. Other than nostalgia they have an old world charm i guess..nice pics.

B&W Pictures looks tad prettier for they are more sharp and bring the focus on the object rather than the color. And add to it the nostagia.
