I decided to check out the Love UK 3D Photo Competition at DLF Place, Saket today. I decided to take the Metro to Saket and then try and figure out where the DLF Place mall was.
When I got out at Saket Metro station there was no mall in sight. So I asked an auto driver how far DLF Place was.He said it was quite far but gave me the directions too. Walking was a bad idea in the end, not because the place was too far away but because the day was very hot. So after walking for quite some time and dripping in sweat I reached the DLF Place.
As soon as I walked a few feet this was the view that greeted me. There were monsters, there was a boat and there was the artist at work. I was happy that they had not started yet, I wanted to eat something and desperately longed for a cup of tea.
So at this stage when the display screens etc were being checked I decided to head for a quick bite. But before that I asked the artist (wish I had asked his name as well) how many days it took them to paint it. They said it took them about 5 days! I have often said that I can’t even draw a line straight with a scale hence for me this art is simply awesome.
So after having Pani Puri, Idli Sambar and Tea I headed back to the Love UK 3D Canvas Photo Competition area. Now there were people around and the fun had started.
I can assure you that it was very difficult to get the entire canvas empty but I managed to capture it somehow when there was a moment of lull. I am actually waiting to claim my photo on the Facebook. I stood on the boat to get my picture clicked but more later when I can show you the official pictures.
I think this group was associated with the competition, but I am guessing simply because they were more formally dressed. But it was fun watching then give it a go.
I think I will talk more about my picture once it is upon the Love UK Facebook Competition site but it is difficult to believe that I could get quite silly in the end, quite unlike this graceful British Airways lady.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
