Why I want to be invisible woman…

You know how after every Batman or Superman or X-men movie your friends ask you which superhero you want to be? I wondered. Do I want to be able to fly anywhere I want and have awesome strength? That’s actually cool to have when you think about it. You can travel the world whenever you want and be back in time for dinner and save lots of money on flights. But no. Do I want to be able to run extremely fast? Nah. Do I want to fight crimes in a tight suit? No way! I want to be invisible woman!

Hmmm why you ask?

People have always fascinated me. I am people too but watching other people have always been one of my favourite past times. Be it in a busy public square or while at work, be it young or old, the face give away lot of entertainment. Specially the deeply wrinkled. Now that, is art. That is also why portrait photography is one of my favourites. (not that I am any good at it) But… I am too shy for my own good. I worry too much about people around me and I don’t like much attention. So whenever I see an interesting face or a shot, I have to hide in the bushes. (Not literally) So pretty much all my portraits of strangers are of the side of their faces or back or too far. Anyhow now that I have realised the problem here comes the awesome solution. Being invisible woman. 🙂
Just imagine, JUUURRRST imagine the amazing variety of photos I can take. And the fun I can have? 😉 Options are unlimited! (For this theory we are going to assume everything I touch will be invisible too hence I will have an invisible camera) 🙂

So tell me, am I the only crazy person or are there others out there? Which superhero would you want to be and why? 🙂

      1. The language is that of Harry Potter…
        Board a train from platform no. 9 and three-quarters.
        Go to Hogwards
        Learn Magic
        And voila! you can become invisible at your wish…

  1. Great work Mekala, shy or not .. it works 🙂 Portrait is not my favourite genre, but I admit it is fun to be lurking on strangers 😀

  2. After awhile having such super powers, would cause the excitement, the challenges in capturing such moments to dwindle. Moments as you describe travel a fine line, and it’s a good and wild thing that they have a rareness about them to be unique rather than common. Your photos above show already an ability run with the challenges. I think if you were invisible, your abilities to track, and capture the moments would lose their edge, and dull eventually as it then becomes too easy. I’d prefer you to stay alert, keen, and work with the challenges in the moment… Incredible photos, Mekala.. Have a good weekend..

Say something... :)
