Dhobi Ghat is buzzing with activity from sunrise. The washermen beat the clothes against the rock in their respective quarters, making splinters of water drops fly off in all directions. I had completed my quota of capturing the washermen in action. I wanted to try something different. Hence the name.
I call it alternate reality because the only reality in Dhobi ghat is action. There wasnt a moment where i didnt see anyone just resting over there. I wanted to capture a frame wherein i just got the calm side of this mad house. Though that wasnt the actual reality of the place or purpose of theplace. I realised i could not achieve that with a horizontal frame.
The result is as seen above. The placid water made me content that to some extent i was successful. Tried to implement the principle of leading lines in photography here. Exploring the medium is my passion.
