Taking snapshots of life

21st Apr 2024


I took this pic while rushing to the train yesterday. I loved how the composition looked, the tube in the foreground giving depth, and the person in the background framed by the concrete and the cables surrounding them. My eyes snapped while the escalator was taking me away from that moment.

I was questioning whether I should take out the camera or not, but then I just took the phone and snapped this moment.

Often wandering through cities, I see moments like that and miss the moment, thinking shall I take the camera from my bag?

I make the mistake of being more concerned about the tool with which I take pictures instead of capturing a moment that will never be in front of me as it is. At the end, phone, camera, film, whatever - the important is to catch that snapshot of life.
