9th January 2008 :: Powai sky line

A colleague in my previous office narrated his weekend adventure to me. He alongwith some of his friends decided to go for an outdoor shoot. They managed to get hold of some reflectors and one of the friend posed and they were happily clicking away in a Railway yard in Jogeshwari. A crowd gathered around them to see what they were doing and soon the cops came and took them to police station for taking pictures on government property without permission. To cut the long story short, they were released a couple of hours later after the data from their memory cards was deleted and whatever cash they had was taken from them. A couple of weekends ago I decided to do a time lapse shoot in Powai, at the same spot where this picture was taken. I was taking a picture at in interval of 2 minutes and after about half an hour, I turned back to see a car parked behind me with an old man looking at me. They drove off shortly after that.

I have had run-ins with cops because of such people and was not interested in another one. I was not doing anything illegal but if the cops came and wanted to harass me, nothing could have stopped them. I wanted to stay there until after dark but decided to pack my camera and tripod and head home.
