Dark side of God / The lights of Heaven
I was debating between the two captions for this picture. I think the skeptics would go with the first one and the believers with the second (although in the context of the picture, it still shows the former! )
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Usually, I don’t miss my trains because of a small photo op, but this happened in Geneva railway station when I spotted this guy 3 platforms away and my train was due in a minute. I thought it was worth it to go across 2 platforms with all the luggage to get a this shot. Luckily he was still there when I got there and the next train to my destination was coming in that platform. Not sure if it was worth all the hassle!
photographing homeless people. This has been reiterated umpteen times, yet some people do manage to do the same mistake again. A photograph of a homeless person sleeping on the pavement is not street photography, it’s just you being an asshole having fun at somebody’s misfortune, it’s just Schadenfreude.
A long and sad goodbye
I’d been on vacation and I was somehow thinking about the stuff that I have accumulated over years. My cameras were on top of the list. I like collecting cameras (and shooting them too), but, would I use them again once I’ve tried them?, definitely not all, so How many do I need?
We all tend to cling on to “our stuff” thinking that we would miss it if we lose it. Most of the times, this is a folly.
I might miss my rangefinders sometimes, but I guess I’d be more happy to know that someone is using and experiencing these beauties than just lying around eating dust in my “Collection”.
