Anand now knows taking photographs of people from the back will probably not result in interesting images…and its better to hold the camera steady though one can experiment taking photographs while travelling in a bus..more importantly for the workshop,he volunteered to be amongst the first of students to try and use the camera…and in a day the results have been much more than pleasing…i really was so amazed and happy with what he tried …venturing out first time with a camera on streets,taking self portraits ,of parents and enjoying it…that chain reaction this morning made everyone ask for a camera…and at the end of workshop after showing the movie & pictures we decided to pass on the cameras turn by turn to each student for a day…finally nine students turned up to form the first batch…the next session is now early morning Wednesday where we shall edit the images and review the progress and how it felt for the students to take pictures for the first time…

On a personal side i realised there ‘s much more to ,than putting a plan to action…at the end of the day its more about micro managing day to day activities and figuring out in  mind next day or week that will lead to success…this coming week will turn out to a lot busier as we go deep into the workshop and finally getting some more cameras for students.and show some books and magazines over the weekend

Attaching a few images taken by Anand who despite a speech and hearing disability manages to go through  classes with a smile…hope you enjoy them
