round and round we go . . . and where do we get to?
Haj pilgrims at Lucknow airport . . .
They were there to catch the local commuter train to work … I was there shooting the Maharaja Express for an American travel mag … We were all shivering in Delhi’s winter … 4 degrees and ice-cold wind for company .. Brrr …
The famous fruit-chat walla at Shahjahan road (next to UPSC) … went there after years and delighted to find the chat is still as good as ever … 🙂
Bored and exhausted air travellers … Or should I say victims of Airline incompetence.
I love photos which allow the viewer to make up their own stories … So here you go .. Make up some of your own .. 🙂
6.10 pm at the Metro entrance . . peak hours . . streaming crowds . . one rare moment with no one on the stairs . . except this pensive looking person . . I happen to be there that instant . . 5 seconds later she is joined by her friend . . and her mood changes to smiles and laughter . . the crowds start stream past again . . the window closes . . but the photograph is made . . a question lingers in my mind, is this photograph a lie about the situation or the truth about the moment . .
Reaching for the stars . . . or setting the stage for them . . .
“… And if we can’t solve your problem then He is always there. But maybe you should go directly to him and not bother us”
Menacing … A personal phobia I may never grow out of …
5.30 am. Delhi airport. Seems from another time. And another place.
Construction worker at Powergrid site in Bina, M.P.
Saw her at Bhopal airport … Absolutely loved her style … The detailing on her burqa was exquisite too .. Couldn’t catch that in this photo …
2 things, which have affected people’s lives positively in recent times – mobiles and the Metro. And importantly, in a truly democratic way unlike a lot of other things which spell progress for only a few.
all dressed up for a Sunday outing to the Gurgaon malls . . lovely 🙂
A rhythm of life now lost to the urban walas …
Churan aur Achar ki dukan wala. Near Sonepat on the highway. The blue tint is because of the plastic awning in front of the shop …
And that is all they have to say.
Totta Aam on the left for Rs 20 per kilo. Badam Aam on the right for Rs 40. In the market of a small town called Vidisha in MP. Wonder what they cost in our big bad city.
The repose . . the tranquility . . could well be deceptive as a ‘life statement’ but does seem apt for the moment . .
This however, is the artistic endeavor of an individual … It’s a pleasure observing the innate genius for retail display of the rehriwala and the chapparwala … 🙂
Had gone to Pragati Maidan to check out the venue for the Street Photography workshop I was doing the next day… It’s titled “Colour, Composition & the Moment” … All 3 came together in the car park … 🙂
