Lure of the Lens

My brother is a foto freak. One of his prized possessions is his camera, which he acquired soon after getting employed (and keeps it upgraded with zeal). And he has been putting it to good use (I hope he doesn't read this posting). My sis-in-law is a bit jealous of his SLR - she feels that he was focussing more on his photo clicker than on her during their honeymoon.

This posting is a tribute to my relentless efforts in encouraging his pursuits, helping him in his experiments with objects and light, reviewing and commenting on his latest prints, accompanying him to Delhi's Chandni Chowk on his equipment and film hunting ventures.

The accompanying photograph is from his collection (which I'm uploading without his permission). You can view his snaps online at and'c
