Photographer's Note

This picture was taken in Khori, a village not very far from the fringes of Delhi. Khori surprisingly is at a standstill. Most of the men are labourers in the numerous construction sites around the belt. A dirty path, runs through the village, with pools of stagnant water, freely roaming cows & buffaloes & curious onlookers as we walked along. We caught up with some children as they were following us around the village, eager to find out what we were upto.

‘Can we take your pictures?' I asked.

At first, a few slight nods, then an overwhelming "Haaaaaaa" (Yessssssss)!!!!

I called them & showed all the pictures I'd taken, on my camera's did my friend.

Their smiles were my biggest reward....and that's the Joy of Sharing.

It's a little more than 22 months since I posted my first picture in TE. As I look back, I see a distinct change in my 'photographic style', hopefully for the better, but that's for you as a viewer & critic to decide. Architecture photography continues to be my first love as I go to extents in search of an original POV. But I have tried to diversify, tried to experiment, sometimes do the daring...more people in my shots, more landscapes, a few portraits thrown in, yet I am the first to admit that I'm still very much at the bottom of the photographic learning curve. But the fact that, for me photography has become an obsession, an addiction, can be solely attributable to TE. Now I yearn to travel to new destinations & explore with my camera. I have seen virtually more places of interest in Delhi in the last 6 months (some more than twice), than Delhiites have seen in years.

I thank each and every one of my friends in TE, who have taken pains to critique my pictures, offer words of advice, all for the betterment of my photography. I really appreciate your kind words & encouragement.

300 is a personal milestone...the journey continues. It's a joy I get posting pictures in this site.....The Joy of Sharing
