146. Beauty lies in the Eyes of Beholders

The poetry of the earth is never dead. ~John Keats

An experiment in shooting macro by reversing the normal lens. I came out good 🙂

136. The Morning Ritual

“You can be a king or a street sweeper, but everybody dances with the Grim Reaper.”

Must see on black

Today I went out early in the morning for a photo-walk. Life is slow early in the morning in IIT. I noticed this sweeper on my way back. It had some stark contrast with surroundings and also the framing by the gate.

See on Flickr for a better and non-distracting background

I din’t experiment a lot with this photograph as I observed it just how I wanted it to be. I just used a little trick I use while photographing people. I start from a distance taking a larger area. It helps in avoiding people to become conscious. Then you can go closer and closer until they notice you. If they don’t panic, you can experiment with various angles. If not, say sorry and leave. You just have to crop them to get the photograph.

Life at Platforms

The first railway on Indian sub-continent ran over a stretch of 21 miles from Bombay to Thane on 16 April 1853.In nearly 150 years it has grown over 114,500 kilometres which carry over 30 million passengers daily.Indian Railways (reporting mark IR) is an iconic Indian organisation, owned and operated by the Government of India through the Ministry of Railways. It has the world’s fourth largest railway network after those of the United States, Russia and China.

I have been documenting the platforms for a long time now. Till now it has not been specifically for photography, but now having a good amount of images on the subject I think I will research it more and make it more detailed.

You can see the complete set on flickr with all the photographs till now here

123. Sleep

Taken at Powai, Mumbai. The housing problem is common in all the big cities of world. Here is an example for Mumbai. I have realized that photography is improving my way of seeing things. There is a difference in seeing in a frame. You just see what is inside and that shows what inspires you the most.

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
