I arrived the train station just on time to board the train. There was a certain frenzy in the air that morning. My eyes were busy moving zig-zag in its usual manner as I watched what has become a daily spectacle for me. Even in the morning rush, I could see people in a warm embrace, holding hands and kissing each other. Others sat to grab their morning coffees, while some other folks wore pensive looks that seem to reveal that they were preoccupied with thoughts.

Whether it’s through an actual picture frame, a few stalks of grass, or even the spokes of a bicycle tire, find an alternative frame to the world around you and share what you see – Nancy Thanki.
This week, turn the concrete and familiar into something new and mysterious. Point your camera at something familiar and turn it into something else. Whether it’s a wall in your house, a friend’s arm, or a billboard seen from afar, we may or may not recognize what it actually is. But we’ll certainly discover something else about it in the process.
