Imagine walking on one of the beautiful streets of the city with a person you always followed on the eve of new year ! Sounds like dream eh ? Nope , dreams come true!
When Partha called me on last Saturday of 2011 I was partly in a shock while I was talking with him. I don’t know what I answered but all I remember is we are going to meet in the evening!! So we met near Garuda mall of Bangalore , holding our camera out clicking sometime. While Partha went on clicking I went on observing him. It took a little time to come back to my normal state which is look out for some photographing opportunities. I should thank him for his simplicity .Then we started sharing all out photographic journeys which went on till night. The tips and techniques Partha shared were so useful and admirable. Occasionally I did not forget to observe him also while he was taking pictures.
The whole M G Road was just sea of people! The lights on Brigade road added a festive mood and I could see people are anticipating that magical 12 ‘o’ clock moment to welcome the new year 2012! I saw every one there . Last year I was one of the people who read about new year’s celebrations happening in M G Road in the paper sitting on my couch at home and said ” why people celebrate like this ?!!”. I had my answer there !
Believe me I saw everyone there ! Boys, girls, kids, grand parents, parents, college students, common man, beggers, tourists, balloon sellar, icecream seller, police, journalists, photographer many more!
So I tried to capture some moments happened on those nights and they are here .
