Was not able to upload any photographs as my internet connection got dis-connnected . This is the photograph of Airoli station. This is a platform on the harbour line. The Harbour Line is a branch of the Mumbai Suburban Railway. It is operated by Central Railways. It covers most of Navi Mumbai and the eastern areas of Mumbai. It has all these beautiful platforms with special design to use natural light as much as possible.

Taken at Thane Railway station while going for the job. While traveling a lot for work nowadays I have realized why people say that mumbai is crowded.

112. Window to the World

Another of the Railway platform photographs. Had to take it at an angle as I had my 50mm on my camera and there was a train so no space in front of the window



111. Lost


Dint upload any photographs for three days as I was packing and traveling and even though I had few pics there was no internet connection to upload. Finally uploading this photograph from a cyber cafe. Took this photograph during my recent train travel. Railway platform is such an interesting field for a photographer. People from different spheres of life engaged in millions of different activities. I will upload the full set containing the platform photographs after coming back to Mumbai. In the meantime I will upload some countryside photographs for you. Just saw some beautiful photographs of dust and lights while coming to the cyber cafe. As there are no street lights, the lights of the vehicles create some interesting photos.

31. Bus Station

Well, I am back to Mumbai with a loads a photographs of my visit.

I was at the bus station of my town when I noticed this man. His costume, his stillness, groundnuts all contributed to my decision to make a photograph of him.

The polythene bag of the groundnuts, his angle of sitting almost fixed my vantage point also. While experimenting with the vantage point some other person came and sat with him.

I tried to use a different background of the temple.

The temple background dint feel right. It is close to the subject so a large aperture would be required to separate the subject from the background. Other than the board behind the subject you couldn’t guess that it is a bus station.

In order to give some more contrast to the subject I tried to shoot from a high vantage point and use the

light floor as the background.

It did provide a good amount of contrast but now the subject was looking very small. Also there was an uneasiness in the shot. A confusion over what the photographer wanted to show. This confusion might be good many times but this time I decided to use my original background- the shops.

This photograph has many things to write about:

1. The sharpness of the Photograph- the subject is completely sharp and you can see very tiny details.

2. The expression specially the eyes

3. The colors: it includes the color of his hat as well as the colors in the nameplates of the shops

4. Perfect blend with background- The aperture is perfect for just blurring the background a little bit to separate the subject and keeping enough details to see what is in the background.

5. The empty space in front of the subject- somehow that space in the direction of sight of the subject is adding to the photograph.
