Skies. Walls. Geometry. Jackets.
This is my home and the walls do the talking here. These are few very important advices and me wishing you all a very happy winter.
Ziro is known to be one of the oldest towns in Arunachal Pradesh, which is also the home for the Apatani people. Besides the mountains, rice farms and orchards, Arunachal has an ample number of helipads. This is one of them.
My friend says this is probably the only helipad in Ziro, which I guess is true and which is why the helipad usually becomes a football ground for most of the kids out there. Then with preferences, the football field would also temporarily turn into a cycling track or a grazing field for a lonely cow.
We preferred strolling and looking at the mountains.
Well, this Diwali, we decided to walk on the streets of the city and watch the fireworks. Fun.
It somewhat turned out to be a good idea. We almost got hit by a rocket. Missed me by few inches. Fun.
[Incase you are wondering what Diwali is, check here. Incase you already know, I hope that I put up more photographs later. Soon. Fun.]
Besides, wishing all, Happy Fireworks.
Baoli is a term for stepwell in hindi. The one I shot here is locally popular as ‘Agrasen ki Baoli‘ in Delhi. We went once and were late. I could just take around 30 photographs in abrupt 15 minutes with the security guards on the trail.
And with the few photographs I could manage to take, here is my first try at multi-perspective collage.
This place comes somewhere on the road that goes to Cherrapunji from Shillong. It was as quiet as a cemetery and as beautiful as a dream. Then there were three of us and that somebody under the ground.
The cat is bored. I am bored. So I tossed him all over.
But he prefers watching the fish.
This plastic toy camera holds a capacity of 16 to 12 photographs per roll that comes in adorable square shaped frames. Beautiful and vintagy, this is Diana F+, from the Parisian Series and I am already drooling over the blue stripes.
Thank you a Friend, through which I (kind of) placed an order to get me one. I opened the comfortably sealed package for the first time, a few months back and surprise! surprise! It was a pretty white and blue striped Diana. Obsessed with stripes is me, who fell in love with it at the first sight.What lomography is like is? Fun light leaks. Dreamsome. Soft focus. Sweet blurry images. Love. The history of Diana camera dates back to the 60’s as an inexpensive box camera sold by the Great Wall Plastic Factory in Hong Kong. It even disappeared from the market for a couple of years. But the lo-fi photography being appreciated by a lot of photographers due to its artistic touch, lomography(which is a now widely used term for such kind of photography) is now more than a mere trend.
If I ever make feel like, which I really do, I would buy all of it. Decorate it in a glass box, in front of my bed and wake up everyday and feel good about it. These littletons are more than just toy cameras.
