Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo on the Marine Drive in Mumbai. A lot of material for construction and repair was satcked along the promenade which is a popular spot for people to hang out. The views of the Mumbai skyline are great over here; but seeing it through this rolled up mesh of wire just gave it such an interesting perspective. I am extremely passionate about photography and street photography is one of my favorite genres.
Time
The marine drive is one of my favourite places to hang out; in a city like Mumbai thats bustling and crowded, a walk or run along this 4 km stretch never fails to make me happy. I had been eyeing this view for a while and was waiting for a chance to capture it at its best. It was relatively early in the day when the morning sun from the east bathes the bay and the buildings in the distance. It was perfect as the sun's light glinted on the metallic mesh in the foreground as well as the back drop. I wasnt even carrying my Canon ..but I just had to capture it. I did it with my Huawei phone camera. I took it on the 24th of May,2014 at 6:42 in the morning.
Lighting
I had been walking the length of the promenade at different times of the day. This view faces the west and looks pretty spectacular in the evening too. But to get the best photo, considering I wanted to use the mesh to frame the skyline, I waited for an early morning hour while the sun was still rising.
Equipment
I did not have my Canon ! So I used what I had-my Huawei phone camera and used sun light.
Inspiration
The Mumbai skyline has been captured in a zillion ways by as many photographers. The wire mesh inspired me to capture it the way I did.It was one of those rare days when construction material had been stacked for some repair work.. I was fortunate that I did it then as the work was all done and all the mesh gone by the next day ! I divided the water and the sky almost equally keeping the buildings at the tip of the island in the centre. I wonder what are the odds of seeing it like this again, never I guess !
Editing
I did not do any post -processing.
In my camera bag
I work with the Cannon 550 D. Its a great camera to learn the nuances of photography. I use a Canon 10-18 for wide angle shots and a Sigma lens 28-300mm.
Feedback
To make the most of views that are very popular with photographers, look for innovative ways to frame the view, like a reflection in water or sunglasses will give a different yet exciting perspective to the same photo.
