I am John Jethi. An amateur photographer who wanders around with his camera and captures moments, places, and people who catch my attention and don't leave me till I have captured them with my camera.
I am not sure when I started my love for photography. My earliest memories go back to the family picnics where I would click a few random pictures on a film camera. The camera used to be a borrowed one, the film used to be expensive, and developing them was not cheap either. That said, I had just one or maybe two moments to capture. Those limited opportunities were exciting and I would make sure everything and everyone I wanted to capture filled the frame. I don’t remember the quality of the pictures, but I remember being happy with the symmetry and lines and the occasional addition of an interesting element in the picture. At that time I didn’t know the science of photography, all I was doing was being amazed at the ability to capture a moment of life as beautifully as I could.
Eventually, my interests changed and I got more passionate about other things. I hopped from one passion to another and before I knew I had hopped on to photography again. This second term with my camera is still filled with the amazement of the ability to capture a moment of life. Often when I walk through my city, travel somewhere away, or just sit by the lake, there are moments that spark an emotion, remind me of something or trigger my mind to weave a story.
I attempt to capture all those moments here, sometimes with few words and others with no words.
