Look Up Beautiful!

We were having our freshers’ party and this lady here  was being dolled up by a friend of hers.

I went up close, and asked her to look up. She did, and the shot came into being!

Prerna, you are beautiful 🙂

 

Big; Glass

Big, can be anything huge. Be it a big house, a big society, or even a big city. I ll share a view, of a big Indian city, from the top of tall tower of a big residential project.

Glass, this time I would like to share one, that is tempered and shattered.

Awestruck!

Sometimes we come across natural beauties, so amazing, that we need some time, a little more than a moment to take it all in and enjoy the view. How one chooses to enjoy the moment varies, some would love to share it with friends, some would like a little solitude.

Two worlds, wrapped into one, here goes!

Glimpses of Mumbai: Dhobi Ghaat

For the ones who have followed my Glimpses of Mumbai set, and thought that it was over and done with, well, not quite. I have been bogged down with post internship formalities and college classes, hence these never made it out of Lightroom, until now. Here is, a glimpse of the world’s largest open air laundry.

Located right off the Mahalaxmi station on the central line is this location. Interestingly, if one would want to have a look at the various strata of the society, the serving and the served, that is also visible right from the flyover.

On the way from Dadar to Mahalaxmi, one can find this certain location too, seems perfect for a eerie shoot!

And to end, some local fauna!

This too shall not be last post of the series, there should be at least one more to it. Do keep an eye out.

Cheers!!

Connect ; Moment!

Connections, have always been varied in their ways and existence. Some say, to connect, one must be in touch, while some connections are psychic. Here, I ll show a digital one 🙂

A filament of a bulb, when exposed to uncontrolled atmosphere, and powered up, lights up for about 2 seconds and burns out.My camera does 3 fps, I needed only one perfect frame to call it a success! Thats a moment, right here!

These are the entries for Connect and Moment from the Blogging University: Developing your eye I & II. Some more to follow soon.

Bliss

What is bliss, if not the absolute happiness that you feel when you gaze at the rising sun and spread out your arms in the wind to welcome the warmth? Or gaze at the sea shore and see the clouds part, just a tiny bit to let the sun’s rays shine?

These are my takes on Natural World and Bliss for the Blogging University: Developing Your Eye I and II.

Water , a lot of it!

This photograph is one, where it becomes quite evident that we, as individuals are quite tiny, when compared against the vastness of the natural wonders.

Here we have a fisherman, ready for his daily tour for his catch, floating away on the river Ganga. Shot at Varanasi.

Predetermination and Mystery

Sometimes, we have a shot stuck in our head. We know what we want, how we want it, and from where we shall get it. The following is one of such shots, predetermined, preconceived and executed, just the way I wanted it to be.

DSC_3433-1

Once the shot was done, I turned around, on my way back, and realized, the setting was quite amazing to shoot, one more frame, with a little mystery, this time.

No, it didn’t rain 🙂

These are my entries for Blogging University: Developing Your Eye I : Streets and II: Mystery

Home…is where the heart is

Its not easy to describe what is home. To some it may be the company of the loved ones, to some it may mean the locality. And then to someone like me, someone who has spent the last 7 years in hostels and PGs, the room, the work space, that feels pretty much like home.

DSC_1977-1

The view from right outside my room, early morning is one of transition. As the sun rises, the cold night fades away, and ushers the day in with warmth.

To learn and to grow every day is what I aim for. Blogging University: Developing Your Eye I and II, underway.

Glimpses of Mumbai – 200 M above earth – 2

It has been quite some time that I haven’t posted the photos. Here I am, back with the promised photos.

Its easy to see miles after miles into the city from the vantage point, atop a 51 storied building. Once you get there, you can see, that yes, the city is growing, rising skywards, and that that the slums are diminishing by the hour. The slum dwellers are shifted to newly constructed  slum rehab towers and on the hence vacant land, come up skyscrapers. I guess now this is how we shall define development, the phase of construction, when slums are converted to high rise towers. Squalor and luxury, opposites together, C’est la vie.
