Some time to live by Abhey Singh
Some time to live, a photo by Abhey Singh on Flickr.

This photograph is just a glimpse of the madness of janmashtami in mumbai. Krishna Janmashtami (Devanagari कृष्ण जन्माष्टमी kṛṣṇa janmāṣṭami), also known as Krishnashtami, Saatam Aatham, Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti, Sree Jayanti or sometimes merely as Janmashtami, is an annual commemoration of the birth of Krishna. popularly known in Mumbai and Pune as Dahi Handi, is celebrated with enormous zeal and enthusiasm. The handi is a clay pot filled with buttermilk that is positioned at a convenient height prior to the event. The topmost person on the human pyramid tries to break the handi by hitting it with a blunt object

67. Body Never Lie

I rarely shoot in the night but yerterday I did. I just got inspired by the use of lights in some of the photographs I saw in the daytime. And then I walked around the entire instiute, using each kind of light to its fullest. I tried to learn movements in my photographs, both with focus and blur. I will upload more of the photographs from that shoot in a later post. Go to Flickr for a better view. Enjoy! Do comment!

48. Holi Dance

I chose this photograph for its cuteness and candid expression. This child suddenly started dancing out of nowhere. It could have been better by using better light conditions and shallow depth of field to separate the child from the background.
