Photoblog: How Mumbai Turned Me Into A Street Photographer

I've been doing street photography in Mumbai for just under a year. Formerly a 'pure breed' writer, I rediscovered photography--street photography--after taking a workshop in Bandra. My life quickly transformed from arduously organizing words on my word processor to quickly framing pixels in my viewfinder. My answer to the "What do you do?" question changed from writer, to writer-photographer, to photographer-writer, and finally, to what it says on my business card today: photographer. Pure breed, no hyphens.

Photoblog: My Visit With Road-Trippin' Italians At St. Jude's, Kolkata

The children were industriously drawing when we arrived. They were concentrating with more determination than I thought possible for a group of roughly a dozen young ones ranging from ages five and six up to 10 or so. They were almost too quiet. But that was about to change when Andrea and Luca took over the watch for a couple hours.

Photo Essay: Mumbai From A Balcony

A street photographer at heart, I chastise myself when I don't get out enough in Mumbai to photograph its people and places. But with a new building going up within shouting distance of my balcony, I'm rediscovering India -- from 10 stories high.

Pictures: Kolkata's Brutal Heatwave

In a recent trip to Kolkata in May, I captured some images on the streets of Kolkata during a pretty mean heatwave. Temperatures reached up to 39 degrees Celsius coupled with the usual high humidity levels. I thought I'd share some of these images with you here while I'm out shooting in Mumbai during the monsoon.

Why Horror Movies Die Bloody Deaths

A good horror movie demands pin drop silence during its most terrifying moments. When the protagonist tiptoes down the dark hallway to investigate the strange gargling sound coming from her daughter's bedroom, the last thing the director intended you to hear is the R2-D2 sound bank of noises emanating from some idiot's cell phone.

Of Cafe Small Talk, Power Outlets And The Future Of Civilisation

I've learned not to disregard cafe small talk, especially when bartering for time with an electrical outlet. I've come to view haggling over an electrical outlet as the modern-day equivalent of grunting cavemen sitting around the fire, working things out. A little "primitive" communication went a long way, didn't it? Without fire, we would have not developed civilisation.
