Photography, Street Photography


I have moved to a new home http://sillyreflections.com See you there! You can read this article directly here: Dreams

For many days, I have been waiting for a chance to try my hand at street photography, but was always stepping back.. fearful of what the people’s reactions would be. So, I shelved my idea inside a deep cupboard in my mind. But, all of a sudden.. Google Photography Prize Contest was announced! I contemplated hard on what theme to decide on, and finally figured this is the right moment to bring out my idea of capturing the Indian Streets and all the emotions it conveys to me everyday!!

So, here is the beginning of my series on Emotions in Street Photography which was my entry into the competition. Each photo is accompanied by what I felt when I was clicking that photo.


This was the first time I had a camera in my hand with sole purpose of taking pictures on streets. There’s this dream that I wanted and hoped to make real for so long.. Just when I was thinking all this in my mind, I saw a man who sells baskets for a living go past me. His gaze was not forward, but down on the road. Soon, a Tata Indica(?) zoomed past us (well, 60 kmph is considered very fast on that road πŸ˜‰ ), and this man lifted his head.. looking at the car and I felt as if he was dreaming to buy such a car someday!!

Dream- To buy such a car some day

  4. Enjoying your street photography! The atmosphere in the first photo is especially dramatic–either a man emerging from the fog or heading into it.
