Picture Wallahs

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words. Now we’re not sure how they arrived at that number, but what we do know for sure is that pictures are a source of much joy, laughter, occassional tears (like when your mum puts up that ONE childhood snap you never wanted seen) and many many many many many memories.

So this World Photography Day, all the humans of FC chose one image that they held dear. And we’re sharing them with you now. Because we love spreading warm fuzzy feelings.

P.S — There are a lot of birds in the snaps below. So if you’re scared of avian creatures, we apologise in advance.

For the rest of you — ENZOY YAAR!

Our first submission was courtesy Divya Ramesh…

All the world’s a stage, and everyone is staring at you.

Divya Says: “Very rarely do I remember that there is such a thing as framing a photo right and rule of thirds and shiz, but once in a while I accidentally I take a picture that’s not a blurry mess.”

Vikas Says: “I sneaked out quietly after my interview at Flying Cursor’s old office.”

Klear…errr clear…the way for Kazan Uddin’s snap!

Our resident photographer Kartik Chandramouli weighs in…

Coppersmith Barbet

Kartik Says: “As far I remember, this photo was the reason I got interested in photography and this Coppersmith Barbet was my favourite subject. The photo motivated me to read a lot about this bird. While in Junior College I sent this photo to some college festival. They printed it and stuck it on the board. How cool was that!”

And last but not the least, Shormistha Mukherjee’s pick…

Going home to the Himalayas

Shormistha Says: “I drove into the mighty Himalayas for 10 days. It was meditative, happy, humbling, exciting… don’t think I ever felt like that. Plus this shot looks like it could taken from an aircraft. And for some reason that thrills me ;)”
