Project 365: Day 4, Ellis Bridge


Good Morning and welcome to another episode of Project 365! Hope this doesn’t start  to seem like a daily soap which people hate but can’t help watching!

Anyway…. so yesterdays disastrous morning turned out to be a blessing in disguise! On my way to office I happened to chat with a dear friend and he gave me the idea for todays image!

The Ellis bridge is a 120 year old heritage bridge built across the Sabarmati river in Ahmedabad that is still operational. Two new bridges were constructed on either side of it to take care of the heavy traffic about 10 years ago. Currently it remains closed most of the time and is opened only for pedestrian traffic during festivities.

Project 365: Day 3, Water droplets on a rainy day..


I must admit, it’s just the third day and it’s not easy! Trying to come up with a new photograph everyday. I remember when I first bought my SLR moving from a point and shoot, I was supper excited. Everyday I was up, exploring with it, getting used to the manual mode. Slowly but surely that interest faded and other things took priority like studies and more recently work! But there is always a way to do things what you love doing. So here I am, still sweating it out, trying to balance out my love of reading, watching movies or documentaries, eating, travelling and doing photography!

So today’s image is the reason I skipped breakfast and even got late for work. By the time I was ready to leave the house I realised I had forgotten to brush my teeth! So I went back getting more late. I didn’t think the day would get any worse with the rains suddenly coming in, but I was so wrong! Out of the house and I have no cash! Bless the people who thought of ATMs, I was saved!

My setup consisted of the mineral water bottle with a small cut to create the drops and a plastic container with water filled up to the brim. Shots were made handheld with built-in flash, although I tried using a small LED torch, which sadly didn’t workout. No editing except converting the shots to black and white and adjusting the contrast.

Has anyone tried doing this? Would be delighted to get some great ideas. Do share in the comments section!

Cheerio mates!
