Anyhow, so what did I do? I know you are dying to know...well, as an effort to take little steps towards my dream, I joined up a meet up group on photography, simply by going to Meetup. com and searching for basic photography groups in NYC. Voila! The next thing I knew, I was getting up at 7 on Saturday morning, rushing to take the weekend train in to the city (which meant changing trains) and standing at the Duke Ellington monument amongst other group members - ready to click away. Honestly, I did not know what to expect, so I went there with an open mind. Usually I am very shy and introvert, but standing amongst the people who I knew shared my passion, allowed me to be a little more open and social. Everything came easy - the conversations, the questions, the humor. I learnt a lot that day. All the technical questions I had were dispelled immediately as I worked my 20D to the max. The weather cooperated too, so all in all, a great experience. Oh, and how can I forget the people themselves, who made the entire meetup so worthy...a special shout out to David S for organizing, and then to Cia for being my encyclopedia...no, wait, more like my wikipedia :) And ofcourse to Nicolas (dude, merci beaucoup for sharing your precious lenses with me), Sally, Chris, John...and others (sorry, I forgot names). It was great knowing you, wishing you the very best in your photoescapades....
Oh, and here are some of my shots that I fell in love with (alright alright I am being biased, but don't be hatin')..still scope to improve, but hope you like em'
As the saying goes, "If you can imagine it, you can have it." And, I am ready to imagine my dreams come true. Are you?
