Spying the streets with my 5 MP!

Streets are colorful
Streets are bright
Actions and Emotions
speak up right!

Your ears and eyes can intervene with a lot of frequency and colors, while you are on the streets. Such a feeling is quite common, but an urge to record them is quite rare. But for me, the movements and conversations to attract me in the form of the emotions they evoke and the expressions they manifest, must be captured in the form of stories to entreat a certain form of happiness.

Moments happen for a matter of time, and if you are looking for general compositions, you may get to know, that showing a laid back attitude to a single prominent occasion may cause you to forget that moment for a very long time. If you have seen it, you need to capture it, just at that very time.

While travelling in general buses, during my work hours I started observing the movements and conversations of the people in Pune. While focusing on the topics, they talked about; I also started observing their emotions. And, as I had no plans to let them know, that I am keeping a close watch over them, I started clicking certain pictures with my mobile phone. The piece of technology which I am currently using has a five mega pixel camera, with a sensor to balance the lightning conditions like most of the point and shoot cameras of the 80’s, and I had quite a fun, spying over them with my little friend.

For the first certain weeks, I made an observation regarding the timing of the buses, so as to get the same, usual subjects and to get familiarize with them to a certain extent. To understand the way they talk, to get to know about the timing when they give their best show, while having a close encounter with somebody familiar.

I named this project “Conversations and Movements”, and I tried to post process most of the pictures in the brightest of the hues, to properly supplicate my friends with the emotions the subjects in the pictures revealed in the best possible ways.

A different story happens in the morning. While she waits for her ride, she says bye to her love.

And when the morning rush, gushes into the stand for the pick-up, we are just stranded and left to decide.

Before starting the day, they have a power nap just to wake up feeling fresh.

In the meantime, the boys come out to play as the heat increase in the afternoon.

Some people take the other means of transport, while some prefers to wait for their ride.

    I love the colors and composition of the shot just before the caption, “Sometimes you are lucky to get a proper seat inside the multi colored transport full of different emotions.”
