What happens when you give a Nikon D50 DSLR to a 12 year old? The 12 year old goes on a clicking spree. She points and clicks at anything that catches her fancy.
So that’s what Sheena did when I gave her the camera. She went on a clicking rampage. I did not get to see the pictures properly in Delhi but when I came back, I was quite surprised by the quality of the photos. But then who taught her to click?
Posting some of the best one and the debut of a 12 year photographer
A pond filled with vegetation. I guess its the water lilies but I wouldn’t know
The new and the old. They co-exist quite peacefully
The biggest Branch
The beauty of the picture is the timing. Sheena clicked the picture when the tree branches were exactly below the brick-kiln”s chimney. It was taken from a fast moving car which makes it a great timing or a very good luck
The Man and the Animal
This is the photo of the man who was crossing the road and for a brief moment he looked back, maybe to avoid the speeding vehicles and at that moment he looked right into the camera and she clicked
Heavy Weight Champion
A common sight in UP, you see trucks, tractors and horses carrying what appears to be big heavy bags. I am told that these is the outer covering of wheat grains and is quite light. It acts as a good fodder for cattle’s. A reflection of the mirror can be seen in the left corner of the picture.
Many town in UP can be a witness to this scene. Over crowded buses and rickshaw and any form of vehicle. I liked this picture because even though it was taken from behind the drivers seat, it had captured most of the subject quite well
The Future and the Future
I almost did not notice the picture. A real contrasting situation where a boy works at a young age to live the future while the school boys in the background would study to make their future. Its a picture of a emerging India turning their back to the underdeveloped India. Am I reading too much into an accidental photo?
A lone boy waits what looks like a bus stand. What’s a “Hot Mix plant site”?
Notice the blue Jeep in the background and remember the old Hindi movies of the 70s. That’s why the picture is here and of course its a very good photo.
The other IPL.
