Photo by – Ankush Arora

It’s a thrill I’ve recently begun to enjoy – capturing inanimate objects, without the presence of human beings. There’s a joy in observing inanimate things, which can have a story of their own.

So on a Sunday evening at a restaurant in Delhi I had my frame cut out for me. It had a rose, an empty chair, a nondescript wall hanging and a puddle of pale yellow light.

The table had another chair to its left, which I had to cut out because my humble smartphone camera wouldn’t accommodate that much! I liked the slanting shadow to the left of the frame. The pyramid-like white napkins complimented the low light condition in which I shot this picture as I waited for a plate of lemon fish, chicken soup and vegetarian spring rolls.
