Serendipity in Sri Lanka

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Sri Lanka | Saturday, 12 January 2013 | 5 photos


I am an economist by education and a Human Resource Manager by profession. I started flirting with photography in 2011 and it has been a constant companion ever since. Today it’s not only about spending time with my camera, but also capturing that time in my photographs.
I enjoy taking photographs related to travel, humanitarian causes, festivals and celebrations. Occasionally I like to connect the dots between people and places.
I believe I should win this competition given that I understand the emotions and harmonies in a scene. For me, there are no clichés in a photograph, only stories around how its different elements, colours and textures talk to each other. And this, I think, is essential for a good photographer - for her/ him to look beyond the obvious and bring out the essence and spirit of a person, place or moment in time.
Lastly, as I start investing more and more time in photography (I am taking a sabbatical from work to pursue my dream), I will be committed to do full justice to this assignment and leverage this platform to showcase our beautiful and quirky world perhaps more meaningfully.
