You are at the No.1 Beach in Asia. You are at Radhanagar Beach aka Beach No. 7 in Havelock Island that forms an integral part of Ritchie’s Archipelago and arguably the most famous destination in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
What would you do if you were at this place? Traditionally, depending on your age, you would either go into the waters for a swim, be at the shore and let the gentle waves wash your feet, go click click click, go on a long beach walk, build sand castles, engage in some water games, munch on some beach side snacks or just simply relax with family and/or friends.
But, if you do get the opportunity to visit this beach time and again, then you should try just studying the behaviour and actions performed of the various beach tourists.
Not only will it be an interesting experience in terms of noticing various styles and mannerisms, it will also be a great opportunity to capture some of these precious moments in time.
I firmly believe in this methodology and put it into effect during my fourth visit to this beach. Sometimes, I would find myself a nice spot and perch myself there for a while and cover a 360 degree view.
At other times, I would keep moving from one end of the beach to the other, but running parallel to the shore line. Sometimes I would move from the beach entrance to chest deep water. Each way is great fun as a lot of data is available for my grey cells to process.
And, it gets even better when you see your picture shoots from this ordeal. You end up having so much character in your photographs.
You have family get-togethers, honeymoon couples, happy-go-lucky kids, crazy photo sessions during sunset, sea shell hunting sessions, crab chasing, water games, poker faces, dumb stares, beach cricket, frisbee, beach volleyball, loud cackling and sober laughter and so much more that you don’t realize how time flies by until your camera runs out of memory space.
