    Black n' White series no.2
.
Fame rained and hailed on all corners of the carnival that seemed like a marketplace - dazzling with smiles and shining with colors that could easily wash away all the pain inside the hearts of anyone - the fame for the city; awestruck faces in reaction. The streets gaily rolled with rikshaws and ice-cream vans, children and the elderly. Birds soared high in the sky around a tower painted in red as the people roamed on the gray of the asphalt. I was shooting pictures of people with permission. As a street photographer, I thought that I would need to be nice and ask for permission, so I did - and stumbled upon this picture, of a person on an ice-cream van. His face was a tabula rasa - a blank slate. Emotionless, he gestured the peace sign as I shot in perplexion. "What is he going through"? I thought to myself as I clicked the shutter multiple times. His face unwavering. I quenched a gulp down my throat and for some reason I thought I needed to speak to him. I took, as far as can remember, two steps forward to reach out to him and then there was a loud "SHADY!! What are you doing there? You'll get lost!" I looked at the person, then at my friends who called me. I knew I would lose the way had I waited a bit longer. I packed up my emotions in a pail that was almost spilling and with a heavy heart, I dragged my feet towards my friends. As I was leaving the man, he started at me; I said a hurried "Thank you" to him. I never saw him again.
