Monochrome Madness – Sleep Little Darling

Monochrome Madness – Hauz Qazi

This picture was taken in Hauz Qazi, a part of the fabled “Walled City” in Delhi. Despite the gloominess of the day (we were thankful it rained!!), there is – was – a constant buzz of activity. For this, I kept a slow shutter speed, small aperture and I begged the services of a rickshaw-wallah, to allow me to keep my camera on his…

Even Royalty Scratches

You know how it is. When you gotta go, you gotta go. When you gotta scratch, you gotta scratch! Some of you saw the royal fella in the Monochrome Madness submission.

The monsoon rains are playing hide and seek with us, but it had rained. So, I ruined my nice, suede blue shoes walking in the slush. We call the mixture of mud and rain…
