110. Even the birds are chained to the sky

what is freedom? Is it internal or external? If it is internal then even slaves can be free. If it is external then how is it get affected by others? How freedom fits in society? What decides that we are free?

I am not here to give you answers, my motive is to make you think. Appears blurred here, watch on Flickr

109. to infinity

Saw a photograph like this on tumblr somewhere and  decided to do something like it. Not getting any new ideas these days. Reached to the brink on saturation. Flickr

Convocation renovation at IITB

Well, the convocation hall of my institute (IITB) is undergoing renovation. Yay! I will receive my graduation degree in the new revamped convocation hall. I went in and around to cover it. As usual, I have tried to show it through people working there.

They called me to take their photograph

Can’t resist taking this kind of photographs

The workers- they seemed to be fighting over some work issue but posing nicely for camera

Preparing to return home after finishing the day’s work

Sunlight was coming from the side, giving an awesome natural rim light

108. Bull-o-car

A take on the rise in Petrol prices in India. This will be how the cars will drive in India if the prices will keep rising like this.

107. As time goes by

What do you see in this photograph? Are to able to identify the withered tree? I thought of so many things while seeing this. Sometimes the tree looked like a hand pointing the finger towards the bird. For that I thought of naming it ‘Hey you!’ A friend of mine named it ’12 o’clock’. But I din’t click this photograph for what it can be, even it was more of a luck, I waited for half an hour to capture a bird close to the tree. I captured a withered tree with a feeling I wanted to convey and I think it is best to name it on that only. What do you think?
Din’t upload last night as I was not able to get the right words for the title and I wanted it to be perfect. I have slowly realizing the importance of captions in an image. A caption is like a hint to the viewer of what you want to say. Earlier I hesitated to stress so much on captions as I believe in the language of photographs and if you use words, you can just say everything into words. But I realized now that people need it, otherwise it becomes any random shot. Everything has to be named.

106. Let it be

Feeling a bit less motivated lately. Patience is giving out. Things are going up and down :-|. Not able to see any way. Ohh! I should talk about the photograph too ;). Well, I am getting used to using textures in my images now. I like how the rose turned out in this. Quite flat and very much painterly.

105. Got your back

Don’t have much to say today. do see on Flickr as it looks much better on black background.
