Monochrome Madness:Close up


For this week’s challenge of Monochrome Madness, we were asked to go with the theme, “Close Up”

I did think of going with macros, and close ups of faces, but decided to take a different approach

I was bang in the centre of this crowd, and three times, I was squeezed by the stampede. I have mentioned earlier, that the third time this happened, I was ejected into a gutter, and was lucky I landed feet first.

But, if you want to get a feel of what a crowd looks like, look at the picture carefully. I had raised the camera above my head when I took this shot.


    1. Oh… the Holi festival. This was not scary, as people were in a festive mood. But, 20 years back, I escaped a mob that was on the rampage because of some Hindu-Muslim stupidity. That, was scary. I was then stuck in my hotel room for two days, with nothing two eat but two small packets of biscuits

  1. Fabulous shot. One of those photos that really draws out a physical reaction from the viewer, I think. It makes me feel claustrophobic and panicked and exhilarated all at the same time.
