“If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.” – Eve Arnold



Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man. Edward Steichen


Today was my first serious attempt on street photography. It was drizzling, and the marine drive at kochi was almost empty, and I thought I will capture whatever worth capturing on my way. Streetphotography is quite interesting. Some people denied my request to photograph them, and the majority was okay with it. Here is the photograph of a street vendor selling peacock feathers @ marine drive, kochi, kerala, India. Humans are really beautiful indeed!. I love humanity. They are wonderful.
