169. Balance of life

Sometimes you wonder where is that fundamental right to education when you saw a 6 year old child treading a rope just to get something to eat.

Taken on the streets of Airoli, Navi Mumbai. I observed this from a long distance and was prepared to make this photograph. This is not a usual sight when you live in a metro city like Mumbai. Well, a city has all its colors 🙂

160. Rough roads-Soft toes

It was one of those times when you were not able to capture what you actually saw. This mother-daughter couple looked quite happy but as I pointed my camera her look changed. And the photograph having that questioning look on mother and the barefoot daughter tells a completely different story.

148. Family

Every family has a story that it tells itself, that it passes on to the children and grandchildren. The story grows over the years, mutates, some parts are sharpened, others dropped, and there is often debate about what really happened. But even with these different sides of the same story, there is still agreement that this is the family story. And in the absence of other narratives, it becomes the flagpole that the family hangs its identity from.

Faith is a tricky thing. Most of the people use it in hard times to remove the fear that arise from uncertainty. I am having a tough time in my life right now trying to find some ways. But I can never say- ‘have faith in god’. I can only depend on myself. Anyways, its a game. All you can do is to fight at your full potential. Cheers!

Spent a lot of time on editing. I read some tutorial on ‘How to give a painterly effect?’ in a book by Scott Kelby yesterday. I din’t have any suitable photograph to try at that time. I went for a photo-walk in the small break I got between rains. I saw this old lady from a long distance and I decided to take a photograph. It came instinctively to me that only the side pose will reflect her true state. In side pose you can see the bend in her body which makes a lot of impact. I waited for her till she came opposite to me and took this photograph. After going through Lightroom and Photoshop the final result came out to be complete different from the original.
