I have always enjoyed taking pictures of people in their element. Often at work it becomes easy to shoot candids. Here however, you might see a lot of pictures where people were aware of me shooting and still didn't mind. Sometime you need to make a choice between communicating with people you are trying to shoot or just quickly getting that image and moving on.

These images were made in Ahmedabad and Mumbai as part of my project 365. I was posting an image everyday. This series is about men at work...

A lot of folks start pretty young, honing their skills or just trying to help out at home.

While others have no option but to sell balloons that other children of their age would enjoy playing with.

At the other extreme some folks don't have any option than to work well into their old age. I remember my grandmother who used to keep complaining that she has nothing to do. Her generation doesn't know liesure like us, I guess.

A professional knife-sharpener, such sights are very uncommon these days. This image always reminds me that you can get a second shot at things even if you are a blunt knife.

I love shooting in black and white. It's almost as if the light starts talking. There are no distractions or colors jumping at you.

The Maharashtra Nature Park is a one of its kind park in Mumbai, where one can observe both terrestrial and intertidal species of flora and fauna. This park is walking distance from the Sion railway station on the central line. Those that are familiar with the geography of Mumbai, will agree that it can't be more perfectly located.

Sprawling over 37 Acre area, several species of flora and fauna have been documented here which includes over 14000 varieties of flora, 85 species of butterflies, 125 species of birds, 3 species of mammals (which includes the Indian Flying fox and short-nosed fruit bat), over 30 species of spiders and several species of reptiles and amphibians (as of now not adequately documented).

I visited the park in April 2014 and got an opportunity to do macro photography. I am showcasing some of those here:

A tiny cricket on the tip of grass. Its unbelievable, the kind of sound these tiny things can make by rubbing their behinds!
