Unusual angles - Angoli inconsueti - असमान्य कोण

Agra, India: When I click pictures, I wish that they should be different, so that persons looking at them can find something new even in places they already know. However, if a place is world famous and thousands click its pictures every day, how can you bring something new into it? Often photographers try to give a new look to a place by changing the things in front of it. In Taj Mahal, to make their pictures different, they go to the other side of the river and place camels, boats, women wearing colourful saris in the foreground. I did not have time to go to the other side of the river, so I sought to be "different" by taking pictures from weird angles!

आगरा, भारतः जब मैं तस्वीर खीँचता हूँ तो चाहता हूँ कि उसमें कुछ भिन्नता हो, ताकि देखने वाले को जानी मानी चीज़ में कुछ नया देखने को मिले. पर अगर कोई जगह जग प्रसिद्ध हो, हज़ारों लोग हर दिन उसकी तस्वीर खींचते हों तो उसमें नयापन कैसे आयेगा? बहुत से लोग इस भिन्नता को लाने के लिए, उस जगह के सामने कुछ बदल दते हैं. ताजमहल की "भिन्न" तस्वीरें खींचने के लिए प्रसिद्ध फोटोग्राफर अक्सर नदी के दूसरे किनारे से तस्वीर खींचते हैं, और उसमें ऊँट, नाव, रंगबिरंगी साड़ीयाँ पहने नारीयाँ, आदि जोड़ देते हैं. मेरे पास समय नहीं था नदी की दूसरी ओर जाने का, तो मैंने  "भिन्न" होने के लिए टेढ़े मेढ़े कोणों से तस्वीरें खींची.

Agra, India: Quando scatto delle foto, vorrei avere qualcosa di diverso nelle mie foto, così che le persone trovano qualcosa di nuovo anche nelle cose ben conosciute. Ma se un luogo è famoso nel mondo e tutti i giorni migliaia di persone scattano le sue foto, come fai a darle un tocco nuovo? Spesso i fotografi cambiano quello che sta davanti alle strutture. Per fotografare Taj Mahal, loro vanno dall'altra parte del fiume e inseriscono di fronte, un cammello o delle barche o le donne vestite in sari colorati. Non avevo tempo per andare dall'altra parte del fiume, così avevo cercato di essere "diverso", scattando foto da angoli più strani!

    1. धन्यवाद प्रशांत. तुम्हारी तस्वीरें भी बहुत सुन्दर होती हैं.

      कभी कभी मुझे लगता है टेढ़े मेढ़े एँगल से तस्वीर खींचना भी एक तरह का फैशन होता है, खुद को ऊँचा दिखाने के लिए! :)
