Photographer's Note

This was the place, a very peaceful spot and one of the many ghats in Udaipur lake city - also known as a Jewel of Mewar - where I ended up after roaming the sight searching the scenes potential for the early morning. It was beautiful clear sky and everything clicked as the sun was pushing its glorious colours and golden light over the enchanting waterways. I saw a window of opportunity for making few quick shots when the tranquility of the water and its reflections was broken.

Capturing this, after an elderly gentleman had emersed from an early morning dip - his daily routine perhaps and possibly his fav spot who seemed to be thoroughly enjoying himself. I tried my very best to make myself as invisible as I could as not the intrude his privacy, however my presence was eventually sensed when shutter was released. Be respectful and sensitive to local culture & way of life, I strongly believe goes a long way and to my great relief he seemed so relax..

Candid daily life photography can be fun actually and always people are most natural when they are not being observed and it's all about spontaneous grabbing the ‘moment' precisely as the 'moment' tends to only occur once. There is nothing like stealing a moment which is just fragments of their lives and that very moment of the subject first catching us is quite telling but extremely real and the results are very true to life and faithful to reality.

and that's the joy of documenting daily life....
