Photographing an Open Cremation

Antyesti (IAST: Antyeṣṭi, Sanskrit: अन्त्येष्टि) literally means “last sacrifice”, and refers to the funeral rites for the dead in Hinduism. This rite of passage is one of traditional Saṃskāras in the life of a Hindu. It is also referred to as Antima Sanskar, Antya-kriya, Anvarohanyya, or as Vahni Sanskara.

Judging Our Own Photos

My photos are not as good as I sometimes think they are. Probably, neither are yours. This statement is most powerful when our latest images are transferred from memory card to computer. The photo below, captured this weekend, is such an example. In this image I like how the subject is lit, as well as the sweeping lines of the flyover above. The three areas of green help hold the photo together. However, I am not sure if there is enough in this photo to keep my interest, only time will tell.

Bar Girls and LadyBoys…

Pattaya

There are not many excuses a married man could have for visiting Pattaya, particularly the notorious Soi 6 and Walking Street. However, I had a camera, and I guess that makes it alright. Photography is a passport that often opens up places that you would not go to otherwise. I headed to Pattaya to catch the neon-lit evenings, alight with bar girls and punters and to photo the extremes of the early morning. Cities that party till dawn offer some of my favourite opportunities for Street Photography, and Pattaya was no exception.
