Classic CP…

4-IMG_5202 

Sometimes, places look really different when you visit them at odd times…. a few days back, a friend and fellow photographer Paromita (Paro for friends and suddentwilight on twitter) dropped in from the City of Eternal Rains “Mumbai” :-) and a few Delhi based photogs planned a reunion, and it included Udit, Ankush, Priyam and Naina. Of course as is the norm, only Ankush turned up and joined Paro and me for a shoot at CP. Considering the fact that we were scheduled to meet at 0700 hrs, the no-shows were not unexpected….

Early mornings end up giving one some incredible lessons, and that morning at CP was no different.

Usually one leads a dog’s life

  4. Cool pics!! I love the first one and the curve balls! Although the getback onto you feet photo is also interesting:) I remember CP--the only time I visited on a very hot Delhi morning when I walked smelling the various flavors of the different restaurants there...a very aromatic experience vis-a-vis this visual treat:)
