When I Shot the Press Photographer

When I Shot the Press Photographer
Relax, don't scream and dial 911 (yes, 911 was intentional because Indian emergency numbers for police and ambulance don't quite respond when you need them the most)... I shot the busy press photographer with my harmless point and shoot camera, no other foul play you see! Well, Durga Puja is not just about artistic idols and innovative pandal designs. Usually, a large number of roadside stalls of various delicious fast-foods, toys, cheap jeweleries, balloons etc are set up around popular puja pandals, in the form of mini-fair grounds where pandal hoppers halt, chitchat and replenish their consumed energy level for further pandal hopping! The stall you can see in this photo was set up outside a puja pandal in Durgapur, selling synthetic feathers and flowers of various colors. The press photographer trying to frame a proper shot with his DSLR caught my attention. He was probably capturing closeup of a flower bouquet while blurring the background. He was too focused onto his viewfinder, completely unaware of my activity... so, didn't waste any time... bang bang, I shot the press photographer!
