Talent vs Dedication

At the beginning of the week I was having a conversation with a friend I’ve wondered more than once. Someone with no art education just like me started a conversation about skill versus talent. It leads to the same question whether art is a skill or a talent? As an adult, I used to use…

The art of imperfection

Perfection – we all seek it in our photography, even though we all know that realistically it is simply unattainable. From time to time, I get the idea of the perfect image in my mind. Then I chase it until I produce it. Aiming high is always a good thing but it can lead to…

Simplicity and Starkness of Black and White

“Black and white is mix of toughest simplicity and easiest complexity.” ― Vikrmn, Corpkshetra Striking photographs do not have to be of anything in particular, it is the way you compose them that counts. Bold shapes, strong lines, rich tones and arresting camera angles can turn everyday subjects into exciting images. The further removed from reality they…

The Towers

Hope everyone is well and is keeping well. Instead of talking about this pandemic (I do not have any insights other than what I’ve read from the WHO) so I just thought to share another image with you. I am not able o create anything new as I am on bed rest after a surgery…

The comfort in symmetry

I was one of those kids that loved reading and loved maths and geometry. Later on, when I became interested in photography, composition to me became about seeing patterns. Patterns that are pleasing to the eye. Seeing things that stand out easily to me. On the other hand, I also avidly go out of my…

Unexpected

Some days start normally and end with some surprises. Days like these are far and few between so I love going back and review them especially when these memories have images attached to them. Since I work full time, I set out time to capture images. These are usually weekends. Just like any other day,…

In between Giants – A photography mini series

Early last year, I was lucky enough to be invited to visit The Scalpel building before it opened. The Scalpel is the new skyscraper addition to London’s skyline. It can be found on Lime street. On the same street and adjacent, you will find the Lloyd’s Building and the Willis building. The Scalpel is 190…

Safe Choices

There is so many quotes and so many encouragements one can get. But the only way to truly to change things round is by braking old habits. Only by breaking habits and by taking on new challenges that we truly know what we are capable of. I’m one filled with doubt but it is only…

My Resolutions

After the festivities, it is customary to reflect on the past year and make a list of what we would do differently in the new year. The problem with resolution is that we usually forget about them by the end of January. This year I really do not feel like making any such list. Instead…

Happy 2016!!!

“What can be said in New Year rhymes, That’s not been said a thousand times? The new years come, the old years go, We know we dream, we dream we know. We rise up laughing with the light, We lie down weeping with the night. We hug the world until it stings, We curse it…
