On one Sunday I was clicking landscapes. After couple of wide prints I started cutting down my canvas to macro and I happened to find this butterfly on a leaf. I wished to capture it before it flew away so I rushed in fear to click it. After the click I realized it was dead and that was the reason it was on a leaf and did not fly away.
At S.G Highway, Ahmadabad, Gujarat.
I’m on a self assignment of capturing “fun” photographs these days.
I encounter a lot of moments happening around me every second; some days a lot, some days not so much. At times that these moments drag my attention to notice them.
As I am on this assignment, I try to extract different perspectives in the routine as well as the unusual. And yes I find fun.
It’s been a month now that, I’m travelling to Gandhinagar for work.
Luckily, I find a window seat every morning. So I get chance to talk to Mr. Sun every day about fun. My interaction with him is very surprising. Sometimes he directly hits on my cheek and the next moment he hides behind the building and suddenly he pops out from the trees.
So what is fun exactly? I ask.
Smiling, or getting satisfaction from what you are doing. May be yes it’s true, because I like this moment and there’s a big smile on my face. Listening to music, dancing, laughing with your grandparents, hanging out with your buddies, flirting with strangers, making love, kissing, glancing at someone…
I guess every single moment which brings a smile and sparkle in my eyes is fun. So when I’m having fun I don’t care what the world thinks about me.
