The call was unexpected to say the least – “Hey, wanna go over to Juhu beach?”
“Why” I asked.
“Just”, she said. “I want to click the sunset”.
It was summer vacations, and I did not really have anything better to do. A trip to the beach with my camera and best friend sounded pretty awesome. I agreed. We went and clicked away to glory…much to the bemusement of the passer-bys. A group of boys actually asked me if we were from some magazine, doing a photo shoot. I don’t think they believed me when I told them we were doing this just for fun, and because we liked photography.
The pictures lay in some elusive niche of my computer hard disk till today, when I saw the Photography 101 assignment for the day: Water.
I tried out a different technique that day. Shooting a picture through a pair of sunglasses – better than any filters you can apply!
