Changing perspectives

Its always fun to capture images through the viewfinder of someone else’s camera. Not only does it give you a closer and clearer look of the composition, it also helps you know how the other person is viewing the same scene that you are. For instance, when i was shooting the stairs, i was more interested in the inscriptions on each of them, but my friend here composed it differently and found this composition more compelling. So while he was getting his steady shot, i stole his shot. Ofcourse, i showed it to him later, so that he does not sue me later;)

Perspective (Part Deux)


Exploring reflections is one of my favourite things in photography. I have done that many times before on this blog : Victoria Memorial Reflections 1, Victoria Memorial Reflections 2, Leaning Elphinstone and Perspective 1 among others.
It just fascinates me no end, when normal things get skewed and compressed in limited spaces. I never miss out on any opportunity to capture such shots. The composition above is a very cliched one, but its fun capturing it nonetheless.
Thanks to my extremely patient friend and her wonderful glares, i was able to capture the KalaGhoda dance and music stage after a high voltage performance by a Bengali theatre group.

A Dragon Fossil?!?


Creeks or small lakes seem very boring when viewed at eye level. But at 10,000 plus feet its an altogether different view. What seems boring suddenly becomes fascinating. Like this waterbody i came across whilst flying from Mumbai to Kolkata. I dont know the exact spot as Jet Airways dont have the GPS screen as Kingfisher does. (The height may also be ambiguous, but i wasnt too high as well so im keeping it at 10K ft). The landscape becomes very intriguing once the flight has started its ascent.

I came across many such waterbodies whilst the journey, but this one in particular left me pleasantly surprised. It seemed to me like the Chinese Dragon all ready to spew fire. Nature is indeed very fascinating, once we change our vantage point, our perspective.

PS : I know the quality of the photograph isnt upto the mark, but in my defence ill say that i had to shoot through the window of the plane, plus the atmosphere was kinda misty.
