When I Didn’t Take A Camera — Photograph Works

...So I decided to take the photograph. The light was low and the shot was never going to be a good one. Still, I propped my camera tight against my body and took the shot.

Another time we might have stopped to look at the stalls and maybe exchanged a smile with the people standing there. This time we walked on the metro – it was getting late and we had a long journey to make to the other side of Delhi at Majnu KaTila, but that’s another story.

Now though, looking at this ‘not very good’ shot, I am transported back to the warm evening, the sounds, the sense of being there. That is why I take a camera.
