That applies to today's photo as well as the subject of the photo itself. I washed the covers of this chair and The Spouse dutifully sent it off for ironing before I could warn him not to. That's my new dupatta you see wrapped around it. I got the cushion covers at a handicrafts exhibition, from a stall from West Bengal.
I call it a makeshift effort as I couldn't manage anything better after a long day at work. In fact, I had two great subjects, but passed them too soon - one was a kid with a double halo of little green bulbs around his head, and a little later, it was a guy selling headsets of fluorescent red horns (like in the devil's horns) who approached me when I stopped at the traffic signal. He was wearing one himself. I began groping for the camera but he had rightly guessed my interest in him wasn't business, and went away. (I would have attempted to compensate him.)
