old photographs


my first camera( actually second, first was a zenith on my 13th birthday)- a ricoh, SLR, when we were taught photography for the first time.
my college friends stuck to the wall as i screamed, further back... further back....catch the light...catch the light...
the exposure is off by a stop or two, but my friends so beautiful...and er...patient.

a year later, spacebar, during the same phase, made me cough myself silly for her perfect photograph.

Hi,

Me - a relatively new mommy around here. Really nice posts! Will love to see some more photos from your camera :-)

Nat said...

yea that was a gorgeous snap too.

Amrita said...

WHAT a fantastic picture. Had forgotten how beautiful both those women are. You brought it back in a flash!

It IS a lovely photo. Never mind the exposure. Strange, but true. But I took almost similar photos of my friends when I first took on a camera!

mira's mum,nat: thanks

amrita: the one with the fashion street top is even more gorgeous now. and the gurjari kurta, more radiant. and you with the malika sherawat smile, will dig up your photos too!

banno: my tragedy is that i have not gone beyond the first impulse- catch the light...catch the light , i still scream. : (
