Cat Among The Pigeons

You randomly decide to catch up with a friend at a bookstore which has a cafe that is known for chai. Well, no suspense there it is called Cha Bar and the bookstore goes by the name ‘Oxford Bookstore’. This is in Connaught Place of New Delhi, India.

So, I was in the metro today with a book that I bought from the above-talked bookstore. Yes, you go to a bookstore and you have to have to buy a book. The reason I bought this was because I remember reading ‘Cat Among The Pigeons by Agatha Christie’ back in 2007 when I was in a school.

The weather was perfect, the temperature showing 16 °C, the metro coming out of the tunnel and sun shining on your back and an empty metro which means you get to sit and read in silence.  That is when I clicked this photograph.

Tell me what you guys are reading these days? And how’s the weather at your end?

The table

It was Sunday today,
I thought of taking out my camera
And cleaning it.

I also gathered my pens
To fill them up with ink
Carried along the diaries
With the hope
Of writing something.

Then I saw the light
Coming in through
The open door
And giving this
Amazing reflection

Took the camera
And clicked a few pictures
And this was
The best one
I was able to get!

I clicked this photo on 22nd of February 2016. Transferred it to PC and forgot about it until today when I decided to revisit the photographs I clicked this year. Converted it into black and white and made some light corrections and uploaded it on 500px. After an hour, I started wondering why not post this on the blog and write something about it.

Photo was well received on 500px and that restored my confidence in this photograph. Tell me if you like it and tell me even if you don’t like it.

Inside the lane

“Inside the lane” as I like to call this photograph. I wanted to go to a shop and one of the Dates(khujoor) vendor told me there is a shortcut from one side. I took the way and entered here, the lane that took me to a bazaar that was so crowded that you’d have to struggle to move from one shop to another.  The amazing thing here is that when you look at this photograph you see silence, peace and stillness while there is a crowd moving about just outside this gate.

The weather surprised people in NCR(Delhi) when most of them had given up hope and were expecting the weather to get warm. This photo was taken on 22nd January 2016, and it was a cold morning with fog that settled down after 9:30

About the photograph- I took it because the road ahead looked nice and mysterious and the man walking alone ahead added a poetic touch to it.
