It was at 5 AM in the morning when I reached Marina Beach in Chennai, just two days before I left the city. The light was still less and people moved around like shadows. So I thought of capturing some of these shadows for my memory. Hope you like them.

A Still Merry Go Round

Kids trying “trick” photography

A crow waiting to announce day break

A couple sitting on a boat

While a group of photographers get ready with their gear

And as there is light , a couple stands there lost in the beauty of nature and love

So these were my attempt at capturing silhouettes on the beach. Very soon there was daybreak and like others, I got busy trying to take in the vibrant activities that envelop the shore. Sometime later .. :)

PS: Most photographs of this post have been shared with Sudha, who agreed to let me do a guest post on her awesome blog.
