Capturing Moments at Chitra Santhe

I always loved capturing moments. A crowd can be such a heap that hides those treasures. A flea market is one great place where I can find interesting subjects- candid and posed ones.

During every year, around January, Chitra Santhe, an one day art-fest is conducted on the streets of Kumara Krupa Road. A day when the road is flooded with artworks. Bangaloreans love art and craft. It is a lively city in that way, I must say. During my stay in Bangalore, I have attended four of these art flea markets. Everytime I visited this crazy art filled fest, I felt so excited. So was my camera- full of battery and an empty SD card.  Of course, I do buy artworks. Why? Because I love art. I support a noble cause. I appreciate the efforts gone into an artwork- be it original or inspired.

This year I couldn't make it to this art show. In memory of last year's fun and meeting a bunch of artist friends from the Pencil Jam Group, here is a series of  photos. A photo-documentation of those endless memories of 11th Chitra Santhe, held during January 2014. It's true that "moments when captured are treasured as memories. "

My daddy strongest, the best~
I found so many dads carrying their 2-3 years old kids on their shoulders and walking up and down the art street (of one day),  at KumaraKrupa Road.
