Black and white photography

Black and white sometimes lends beautiful colour to a picture. Here are some of my favourites:

This was taken in Jodhpur at Jaswant Thada. I loved the angle of the steps here.

This was at Dhanaulti, a small town near Kanatal. I'd walked up to this point for the view.
But I got very lucky because the clouds descended and passed by right in front of me...
I just sat there gazing and even captured it on video.

This was also in Kanatal, in a remote forest with very narrow roads. My mother and I took a jeep ride here. I picked up several pine cones too.

This one was clicked at the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur - an amazing place for photography enthusiasts. I clicked almost every corner of the fort. But this was just different. The light streming in was just perfect.

Took this in Goa at the Calanghute market. I just found these Obama chappals so fascinating.

This lovely watch clock is in my house. I like the simplicity of the picture. Nothing disturbing the background; it is just the clock.

Fashion and pop art - shoot with Fashion Bombay

So I did something unusual last weekenda fashion shoot for my cousin Sonu and our friend Jasleen; both professional stylists who run a fun blog called Fashion Bombay. It was for a 3-part series to celebrate their 100th post.It was great to discover a new genre of photography as I'd never done a fashion shoot before, and certainly never thought I would. Anyway, so here are the results, do let me know your feedback.
P.S. For those wondering what a fashion shoot is doing on a primarily travel blog, I did 'travel' till Andheri for it. Isn't it wonderful how the concept of 'technicality' works? :)

The funky pop art cushions, boxes and bags are by Nidhi Karnavat Chopra. Log on to her website Pop Goes The Art to see her work.
