I was charged with the task of taking a photograph that could not be easily shot using a tripod. I racked my brains quite a bit, and when I was driving into Delhi, I had a brainwave.
First of all, a clarification.
I am Indian. Ergo, I am crazy.
I took this shot while driving.
I put my point and shoot on ‘sports mode’, and drive along at a decent pace. Half my attention was focussed on survival. Normally, my entire attention is focussed on survival.
Then, I held the camera on the driving wheel, as I drove. Finally, I spotted this guy sneaking onto the road, in the wrong direction. That is when I clicked. Luckily, the traffic was not particularly heavy that day, else i would be in hospital.
No doubt, the idiot was talking on the phone at the same time.
In Delhi, many of us have mastered the art of defensive driving.
Will I do this again?
