1000 days of non-stop photography! Each day trying to find something different & unique. Each day trying to find time to photograph. Each day letting somebody know of my project & making their day showcasing them in so called “pic of the day”. Days when inspiration came in numbers and at times in trickles. Days when I felt I was going down & at times up and up.
As I complete a perfect 1000 days of photography in my 365 Project, it seems like a dream. When I began, I hardly thought I would make it beyond a year. And now, the happiness of conquering the four figure mark. It brings immense satisfaction to know that I am dedicated to photography than anything in life. That I did not cheat but each day shot for the past 1000 days.
Yet it is not entirely my efforts that made this possible. The people made this journey possible. My friends who contributed in my daily vision, the strangers who became friends, the friends of friends, the nature, the flora and the fauna, the street characters, the toddlers, the inanimate & much more. To the people who appreciated and showered praise even when I knew deep within that this is not my best work. It only made me to work harder towards raising the bar each time, each day. Thank you!
It is rightly said – “For one’s Imagination, sky is the limit!”
A strike of imagination and our day is transformed into a worthy one. Once the human mind is stretched, it never regains its original boundaries. It is a beautiful monster. If feeded with regular supply of inspiration, it can transform a life. If not, it can ruin one.
Leaves! I’m fascinated by them. Each leaf has a unique texture, shape & colour to it. The symmetry, the lines & the details truly testify the wonderful creation of the nature. As the season’s progress, they transform uniquely & again take on an entirely new character. I’m obsessed with all these qualities of leaf. Here is another photo series on them. Enjoy.

A month ago or so, I went out with my friend to relish a yummy snack of Dabeli. My tastebuds were satisfied & I was waiting for my friend to finish his dabeli. At that time, I happen to look upwards. I saw an electric pole(the one with sodium lamps). Since I was standing exactly besides the pole, the pole seem as if it was reaching into the heavens. It strucked to me that this would be a good photo opportunity. I pulled out my camera & took a shot. Not impressed I started to observe what more I can do to enhance it. Another shot & as they say rest is history. I was hooked to it & decided to do a photo series a la Better Photography style. [Click on photographs to enlarge]
