The dividing line
The Man and the Sea
I love capturing sunsets on beaches. I also love just walking for hours by the shore, letting the sea water play footsie. On one trips i found my cousin also indulging in these activities, so i captured him while he was trying to have some kinda conversation with the waves lappin at his feet. He was blissfully unaware of him being photographed. I had a wonderful time capturing a human element against the background of the vast sky and sea. Indulged more in diagonal shots as i feel the normal rectangular frame gets boring after a while. A little experimenting never hurt anyone:)
Was just going through my old photographs and i cringe at some of the mistakes i made. I mean there are some photographs which i could’ve improved upon on the spot. But then like the latest Aamir Khan ad goes ‘…Doosro ki galtiyon se kya seekhna, make your own mistakes yaar’, im really glad that i made those mistakes. It really helps me in improving upon my photography in a major way. This was one such photograph where i could’ve easily avoided the part of the tree that enters in the upper right.
I was strolling beside the beach, in South Goa and there was a huge wall formed by the palm trees which blocked the beach in a major way. Luckily we came across this opening, which gave a really charming view of the beach. The scene also had a human element, the cyclist. So before the cyclist went outta the frame, i captured the scene, not keeping in mind that i was introducing the unwanted trunk of the tree as well.
