First Outdoor Shoot Post Covid-19 Lockdown
It’s been a hot minute since I shared anything on the blog since corona-virus took a massive shit all over our lives. It was fun and games in the beginning, I even got into legit cooking but then slowly the daily utensil washing, facing life, etc got a little heavy. There were some great days in there where I counted my blessings, was grateful for the stuff I have or was just plain drunk to give a shit and then there were days where it was a fucking struggle. I tried my best to be consistent on Instagram atleast but my bloggity blog blog was a bit left out. Then the “unlock” happened – whatever the fuck THAT was coz we all were still pretty shit scared to step out (atleast I was). But eventually, for my sanity, I did step out – I still have only visited my parent’s and Naina’s place a couple of times (visit to folks place is usually just handing/taking stuff at the door or sitting far away from them with least contact and not for too long), had 1 girlfriend over for beers and lunch and now regularly go to another very close friend’s place (very close to mine) to practice yoga with 2 super cool fools (one of who is actually trained to teach yoga so that works great for the other 2 of us). I CANNOT begin to tell how much just doing this (going to a friend’s place to practice about 1.5 hours of yoga most mornings followed by cold brew and then chilling after for a bit, reading/troubling/etc) has helped me mentally. It’s pulled me out of a faze if that makes any sense and that feels really fucking good. All this doesn’t have much to do with my outdoor shoot but I guess it’s a way for me to thank Prateeq, Devang & Sahil for being so nice to me.
And maybe because I feel so ‘here’ now, it felt natural for me to want to dress-up (just a little bit, coz personally I would be pretty fucking happy spending my life in boxer shorts, tees and sportswear) when I stepped out to go to my folks place today and do a quick impromptu shoot around it – like the old days. I didn’t care that it was hot, I was sweating, it was windy, my hair were everywhere and that I have hair on pretty much every square inch of my skin by now. It felt great. Hope you guys enjoy the outfit and if you’re even the slightest bit offended by my politically-incorrect language in this post – you can fuck right off.
