So, I just took my handkerchief, unfolded it a little, put it on the filthy ground and placed my camera above it. Then I set the timer in my camera to 10 seconds.
I needed to ensure that the camera covered my desired frame and also eclipse the sun for giving me a perfect silhouette. The exercise is like; I would press the button; run a little to stand near my bike and wait for the camera to do the click. Then, come back to the camera to check if the result had been what I was having in my mind.
My repeated activity invited weird look from a local folks loitering around in this beach for their early morning routine. I just pushed their awkward reaction down and with a bit of difficulty concentrated on my work.
After a few clicks, I got the idea of composing the best picture in the given condition!! The above photograph was a result of the perseverance.
I had blogged the awesome photography experience on this blog and now an year has gone by.
The dismay to me now, is that, I found that such a hard work of mine was simply lifted off the internet and used by http://bikebasix.com to sell their merchandise.
Above is a screen grab from the portal of the Ahmedabad based company BikeBasix. The merchandise which has my photograph is being sold at Rs.499 a piece, all these being done without my knowledge, as a person who had created the artistic work with much effort.

Copyright Act 1957 is there to safeguard the rightful owners of such hard work and this call for getting me into a new kinda experience of taking up legally against somebody for stealing my content for their commercial activity.
