“I prowled the streets all day, feeling very strung up and ready to pounce, determined to ‘trap’ life – to preserve life in the act of living.
Above all, I craved to seize the whole essence, in the confines of one single photograph, of some situation that was in the process of unrolling itself before my eyes.”
(Henri Cartier-Bresson – French photographe, 1908–2004)

This picture was shot in Kalkaji in the garden which is at the corner of the place where I stay whenever I am in Delhi.
By chance I saw this beautiful horse grazing the grass among the tropical plants and the benches and bringing poetry to the city…

“Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul”.
(Plato – Ancient Greek Philosopher, 428 BC-348 BC)

Into the ruins of a Madrasa from the fourteenth century which stands at Hauz Khas village in South Delhi, I met Jatin who was playing guitar with three of his friends.
They were sitting at a window in front of the large water tank.
Their music was echoing in several rooms of the Mughal building and bringing a pleasant atmosphere.
There was a storm like those we have at the end of summer forthwithing the begining of the rainy season.
I took several pictures, it was a nice break in my busy day, this place is so peaceful that I almost forgot I was in Delhi…
