Having a bunch of photography enthusiasts, as friends, works very well for me. When suddenly in February '14 a Whatsapp group named "Ladakh in June" gets created, you know more than well what kind of planning the next 4 months are gonna demand from you.So, 9 of us photographers who had met each other virtually on a platform such as Instagram went about planning and executing a mammoth of a task such as a backpack to Ladakh.
Mammoth because we were all actually 1000's of kms away from each other. The cities we all belonged to were Delhi, Mumbai, Vapi, Hyderabad, London, Johannesburg.People from Hyderabad, London and Johannesburg were supposed to club with me and take a train to Pathankot from Delhi, where people from Mumbai & Vapi had already reached a day before. Once all of us had grouped together in Pathankot, the next part of the journey started. From Pathankot, we had hired a 12 seater Force Traveller for the trip, till Chandigarh.
