Photographer's Note

This is just a quick hip snap, a simple street scene taken in Pink City of Jaipur on a bright afternoon but full of colors and lively energetic feel caught my attenton. To me it's a meaningful travel record shot and probably subtle art, an absolutely essential to getting the most out of the few shared moments on the street in a foreign land of different culture, peoples and way of life.

I truly enjoy shooting without looking at the view finder when walking past people with camera preset held at hip level coz, I often get a much more interesting perspective and the quirky angle, while keeping my eyes locked forward and preventing making eye contact with my targets and this way I am nearly invisible to those around me.

I love the angle and the fact that it all looks very everyday natural, but half the joy is seeing what I have captured through sheer accident - this big size intruder just popped up suddenly looking into my lens when shutter was released. But I truly enjoy watching people, observe and not only capturing the brief snapshot of their lives but also I get a great point of view which gives me a tremendous gift as it happens before my eyes.

So don't hop when you shoot from the hip...
Happy viewing
