The Newspaper Project

Whenever i go out on the streets to shoot, i never go out with an agenda. But, this time, this first image above spurred me on to concentrate on photographs of people reading the morning papers. Seeing people read newspapers is something all of us see everyday. So just thought of capturing these moments when the reader is completely engrossed in his daily news dose. 
Don’t know about others, but for me, newspapers are a means to enter into a meditative state, where its just me and the words on the paper, oblivious to the world around me. Moreso, with the Sunday papers.

The Roots

The Sagar Upvan located at Colaba is a botanists’ delight. The botanical garden boasts of many different species of plants and trees. Had been here alongwith a group of garden enthusiasts. Learnt quite a few things about plants and hotriculture, a subject which i have little interest in.

While following the group, i noticed this tree whose roots spanned in all directions. The funny part was, the spanning of roots was over the surface of the ground. It brought back memories of the Ooty Botanical Gardens where i had been a couple of years back and had clicked many photographs of friends sitting on the roots of the huge trees that are ubiquitous in those gardens.
I found this particular tree intriguing as the form reminded me of an octopus (except that the roots outnumbered the octopus’ limbs and the roots did not have conspicuous suckers:P)
