“It was our personal triumph. We had achieved something no one could. We could create so perfect an illusion of physical togetherness that sometimes the real thing fell short of it.”
Note 1: Post-processing in Picasa (I don’t know how to use anything else).
Note 2: The quote comes out of a little write-up I wrote at 2 a.m. tonight. Hence the title.
There is one thing I love about visiting my native place in Rajasthan. As soon as the camera comes out the bag, the kids flock to me like moths to a flame. I don’t even have to go around looking for interesting subjects to shoot.
This, here, is a percentage of kids I had to shoot. After this group shot, they were kind enough to line up and walk up to me one by one for individual photographs. They were not satisfied with one or two photographs either… it took about 10 clicks per kid to satiate their unbridled enthusiasm. I now have enough photographs of kids to last me a few years.
