Life on the Dal Lake is always moving, yet quite simple and comforting. I spent only two days on the Dal but It felt like home. The shops around the corner, the kabab-wala on the shikara and an evening tabakmaz and kawah, they all add to that richness of Kashmiri lifestyle.
Will be going back again to photograph the lake in winters.
Rains, especially when they are unexpected, make for the best evenings. Add some hails to make it better.
The light was beautiful, and I wanted to capture that cold and enclosed feeling of rain. The gate shows both the compound of my house and the road outside.
A wonderful evening in Hyderabad at my home.
