Someone caught in the reflection of a mirror

A couple of weekends ago, one early and not so bright morning Lavannya, Sabir, Vasu, Anu and I packed our photography equipment and went to the Majestic bus station, City Market and Tipu Sultan’s Palace.

We roamed around the busy bus station, the crowded Sunday bazaar (where you can buy almost everything!). Piles and piles of what seems like junk everywhere. At least that’s what it looks like. On closer inspection, it turned out to be useful stuff like nuts, bolts, screw drivers, mirrors, old cameras and stuff you wouldn’t see anywhere else. Vasu even picked up some Tamil movie cassettes at a bargain price!

We then went to Tipu Sultan’s Palace (my first visit). It’s quite a grand name for a smallish structure, but interesting, never the less. I was more fascinated by the temple in the Palace compounds.

The rays of the evening sun filtering through a bare tree. This is in the compound of Tipu Sultan’s Palace

Some pictures from that morning in this Market Scenes album.

  1. India holds an amazing variety for photographers. Reminds me of someone who told me sometime back that when she was in India she could hardly think of what photos to take. I guess she had become so immune to the most picturesque scenes.

  2. I would want to join the bandwagon here too, if not for the fear that I would eb snickered for my poor old Canon S230. Me still pre-amateur. *sigh*

  3. jace: you’re never in bangalore in the first place! are you back, btw?

  5. Hi Anita .. sorry for sending this note here but i couldnt locate your email id anywhere – i’m off to BlogHer next week and in preparation for that i have been talking to several women bloggers about how blogging has affected their lives – i’d love to have your views too on this, given that you’re one of the earliest adopters – would you drop me a line, and i’ll tell you more about it then. Many thanks.
