For good dim light photography 4 things are important. Flash, ISO, aperture, and exposure time.

 

Flash: There are 2 reasons we want to avoid flash.

 

1. Its irritating for others when the flash blinds them. Its also easier for us to click snaps quietly without making anyone conscious or aware that

We had nothing to do on a Sat afternoon so we decided to head to Anjuna at my favorite place, a less known shack (if I were to name it here it wont be less known anymore, would it?), and

My friend runs to the school carpenter dragging a coconut palm branch, and emerges out after 5 Min’s with a new converted cricket bat. “See..” he proclaims, “I told you we will get one”. The beauty of gully/street cricket is that one can

Faces at Ingos

05 Aug 2010 | no comments » Add a comment


This snap reminds me of the old “2 Unlimited” song called Faces. Rememer the lyrics…

 

All around different faces I see
Some are happy, some in misery..

 

The women in front is holding her jacket tighter, seems lost, or looking for someone/something, the african lady behind her seems to know her way across, and the weird stare from the 3nd lady on the right hand side seems to say “I know what you did last summer”, with the numerous people in the crowd behind make it interesting. The focus point is the wierd lady ofcourse.

Some say Riders on the storm is an autobiography of Jim Morrisons life. This was the last song he recorded before he died few months later.

 

Lester Bangs once said (and repeated in the movie “Almost Famous”) “Ah, Jim Morrison is a drunken buffoon, posing as a poet.

The train journey

A snap I clicked from the local Mumbai trains, the best and the fastest mode of travel in Mumbai and the cheapest too. I have still not figured out the system and still wind up asking people which platform to catch a specific local train, but the locals just know it, “Doh platform par toh dheeri Gadi hai, platform teenh par superfast hai” (platform no 2 has a slow train,

The hippie culture started in Goa in the 60s, and people would make a long journey by special buses from Europe at a days notice to be in Goa. To make some money they started small flea markets which gradually grew where everyone
