I doubt whether Ford would have imagined the extent to which our society would degenarate.
Usually I post only shots from my workplace but I was forced to make an exception here. No prizes for guessing - this is Chennai only. A single phone call is all that is required for the govt water tankers to be at your door step (free of cost). But when they fill up the Sintex water tank in the road, shouldnt it be available to all? Dont know who had the brainwave to put a lock to it.
Well this wasnt in my colony - shot it somewhere else. Due to which I was forced to face a guy in the neighbourhood with two dogs in his leash. Diplomatically managed to avoid confrontation and had to shoot this discreetly.
This led me to ponder about the rights of a photographer. Can you shoot anything and everything which is in public? If you can shoot an actor/actress in public and even publish it, cant we shoot guy/lady on the road? No I cant ask permission, then the shot wont be artificial. Would love to hear your views on this.
