Waking up at 5am was in fact a tough deal. But usually I don’t sleep at all if i have to go to some outing. Weekend shoot at Versova was no exception. This small outing was called in from Mumbai Weekend Shoot (MWS). My cousin and I manage to reach the site on time, even though we both had a late night birthday party previous night.
This kind of photo shoot was first of its kind for me, so I was really excited. After a group shot, we headed for the actual village, whose inhabitants were just rising from slumber. Versova village is actually a small fishermen’s village very close to city’s hustle bustle. Though it has something which separates it from the city. I felt, these people are pretty used to seeing so many photographers at once storming in their village just to shoot almost anything which is in front of them. I really had a feeling that we were up to something like that.
But it was only a matter of point when I saw snaps from other people and also compared my snaps. We could come up with so many different takes over such a small place. Each photo had a different story to tell, so overwhelming. It just felt like a class full of children assembled for a painting competition, and they had to draw a memory drawing. End result is that I am eager to attend more such shoots. My lord, please avail me more of week-offs for this entirely devotional reason…. Amen!!!
Below are my takes..
