173/365.
Taken with two of my life’s most important things- Coffee and books. With starting to get out of the negativity due to monotonous routine, I am now focusing on improving my skills in photography and design. Also I remembered the lines of famous Indian poet and father of Amitabh bachchan- Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s: ”
Madiralaya jane ko ghar se, chalta hai peene wala,
Kis path se jaoon, asmanjas mein hai yeh bhola bhala.
Alag, alag path batlate sab, par main yeh batlata hoon
Rah pakad too ek chala chal, pa jayega Madhushala.”

132. One who sees Everything

“A single chair in the corner of a dark balcony,
And a lot of windows watch me”
~Fatima Naoot

What is this old lady thinking? Does she want to talk? Or she just want to watch.

Must see here on Flickr as it looks superb on black background

Photography has given me a lot of wonderful experiences. You talk to unknown strangers without any context, without any judgement. you just talk. I was a little apprehensive about  going close to her and taking the photograph. I thought she would refuse. I was taking a long distance photograph when she called me.

She was speaking Marathi I guess and I din’t understand a single word she said. But I felt connected to her. It was like she was searching for someone to talk.

I just listened to her and took photographs. She was not nervous.

There are some photography tips I learnt from this photograph. I think you will benefit from them too.

1. The placement of subject: I cropped the upper portion to allow more of the wall in the lower portion. This shifted the weight to the upper side and now you feel that you are looking up.

2. The color: I added some texture on the background of the balcony. The blue color of the background gave the depth to the photograph. It gave the lady a push and a color contrast.

40. Lipstick

I used window light to get a nice silhouette. It appears like a graphic design to me .

30. No Exit

This photo-manipulation is inspired from the philosopher Satre’s play- No exit. It is based on a group of people confined only to a room.

Going home for a marriage, will return with a loads of interesting photographs.
