Reward of the Date

Golconda Fort Suyash

Saturday. 18th February , 2012. My first date with her.

At one of the historic monuments of Hyderabad – Golconda Fort, a fort built in 1600s, famous for its magical acoustic system. An unusual choice, probably, for a date? But that’s how it was. She arrived there like the leisurely breeze – simplicity and innocence draped in ‘white and blue’.

Guess what we did on our first date. Photography!!!  🙂

She taught me how to handle a SLR camera. It was the first time i was shooting with a digital SLR camera. She had given colors to my imagination. I clicked a lot that day – shot the beautiful and grand fort, its minarets, courtyards and walls, flowers in the lawn, and most importantly, captured her in my eyes. Since that day, i never let my eyes lose sight of her.

And the reward? Not this photo here, though it’s a memorable one, for being one of my first shots with a digital SLR camera. But that day I received a special reward – reward for the rest of my life.

Her. My wife. We married and and now we shoot together as a team.
