Exercises in thinking aren’t always futile. Even if the extent of their success lies in a new, un-thought of, thought. Trying to come up with something interesting to do on the next photo walk, I thought, hey, why not walk from my place in the city to my friend’s place in the city – same city of course. And that’s what we did. From the affluent, newer (relatively) parts of the city to the older, affluent in their own, ancient, ways, parts of the city. A total distance of about 13 kilometers, give or take a kilometer of walking back on the same by lanes.
We started at 7:15 a.m from my place and reached his place by 12:22 p.m. Not too long. Not too short. Just enough to get some interesting shots. If not interesting shots, shots taken at getting into interesting places – the ENT Hospital at Koti for example. A government run/rundown hospital with a lot of character. Anything rundown by the government and you can rest assured, 9 times out of 10, it was something interesting. If you think about it, the government is thinking of tearing down OGH. Sigh.
The images are in the order of which they were taken. Some phone photographs [not included in this post] too since I was shooting with a single lens throughout. Explains the title of the post. Should probably have mentioned it earlier. Decided to shoot with just the one lens – a 50mm prime lens. Why? Bag too small to carry more than two cameras and a lens each. The other camera was the Pentax. Film to be developed at some point during the current political cycle heralding in the end of days as we know them so on so forth.
It was a good day.
