I have been missing the time to shoot. Film or Photos. Been really missing it. Feels like a part of me has been carved out.
Also, been looking for a new camera – if that makes sense. And, the question i ask my self is whether it makes sense to buy a camera when i don’t have time to use it. And, if i make time to use it, what camera should i buy.
Or should i just get the trusted Olympus cleaned up, buy myself the new mirrorless cameras or should i go for a full frame dslr. By the time I make up my mind and zero in on a product, i am sure there will be new entrants into the market.
In the mean time, some stuff i shot last year.

This was in a little village in Uttar Pradesh.

This was in a little kolum village in Andhra Pradesh (Adilabad)

Vile Parle Market (i think) – and i just loved the orange and the grape contrast

barbed wire

Guard at the Hazira Port – found the contrasts fairly interesting. I think the guy had snuck out for a smoke … the shot definitely made it seem that way.

Keeping it Out

This was interesting for another reason, because of the nature of the shot and the seeming distance between the Sea and the land, it seemed like the barbed wire kept out the sea :)


This was shot in Mumbai – near the University. I found the interplay of light and shadow quite fascinating. It reminded me of the smaller gate that led into a fortress or a jail …


And this felt like someone was going to fence off the sea

Lifting the Son

And, this is possibly one of my favourites. A sunrise shot – at Hazira. The angle made it seem like that the winch was lifting the sun

Two little birds sitting on a wire, ‘obviously’ sparring….

I am closer to the sky

I am closer to the sky
Then they tiff….. one turns away
I am not talking to you

And then there is a serious Ego Problem — they both look the other way…

I am not apologising first.

And then they both flew away in different directions …..
