Pinhole

Advertisements Pinhole. The Oldest Form of Photography You can say pinhole photography is the oldest form of photography. It’s not the oldest form of image making.

Mirrorless

Advertisements Know the “Bones of the Camera” to use it well A few months back, I bought a Fujifilm XT-4. I bought this because I intended to use this for street and travel photography.

Cogs

Advertisements We Have Become Dehumanized? I was in Connaught Place, New Delhi, a week ago, and was looking for a place to eat.

Back to The Streets

Advertisements Photographing People Rebuilding Their Lives I am returning to the streets this year, and I have my reasons for this. For one, it has become expensive to travel. When I asked a hotelier about the escalating hotel prices, he shrugged and told me they must make up for their Covid losses. Life has becomeContinue reading “Back to The Streets”

My Timberland

Advertisements Your Shoes and the Journeys You Undertake You may consider me to be crazy, and it’s possible I am quite mad. Why, you might ask, why I am writing a blog post about my Timberland shoes. However, I’d like you to stay with me, as I write about my Timberland shoes and the journeysContinue reading “My Timberland”
