I’m Tassem and I like to think I’m a photographer.
The idea of freezing time has always amused me. I guess it has to do with my intense love of all things sci fi. Remember the ray guns and self tying shoes from Back to the Future? Yeah, I love that stuff! But alas, the DeLoreans didn’t fly. The evil scientists are still far away from bending time. So I decided I’ll stick to a camera to freeze time.
But I hate ‘About Me’ columns. Everytime I have to write an ‘About Me’, I’m inexplicably stumped. It makes me wonder and ponder over who I am, what I do and why I do it. Then it invariably goes on to show how unsatisfied I am. And that just bums me out completely. For starters, you could say I’m confused. But that’s a word thrown around these days with complete disdain that its almost clichéd. But then it makes me wonder. What about those of us who are really confused? We don’t want to get lost amongst the myriad of clichés. I guess that leaves us pondering over what we are and who we are. And perhaps why?
People should be able to enjoy each other’s company and creativity without being bound by the unspoken etiquettes of society. It doesn’t matter what I do or who I am. What matters is I am here to share what I have and experience a new day with perhaps a new friend. Isn’t that how we grew up? Why should it be any different now?
I told you, I hate these ‘About Me’ columns!
