Thrilled to announce the fourth iteration of “Let’s Get Lost” photowalk in Ahmedabad – a walk where we explore the old city without a fixed route.

For the last three walks in this series participants have loved the idea of not having a fixed route and figuring the way on their own. The walk sparks conversations with locals and among the participants themselves – something everyone enjoys.

Lost among the labyrinth of narrow lanes, we stop for tea and chit-chat as we decide where to turn next. You will get introduced to the basics of street photography along the way and I will help you capture the essence of the walk. You will also learn to overcome hesitance while interacting with strangers.

Come, let’s get lost on purpose in the narrow lanes of old Ahmedabad where every corner has a story to tell. Get introduced to the basics of street photography as we walk around the old quarters.

Ahmedabad Photo Walk Heritage City

About Old Ahmedabad

Amidst a labyrinth of narrow streets and bustling bazaars, lies the UNESCO World Heritage City of Ahmedabad. Here, time seems to stand still, preserving the rich tapestry of history woven into its very streets. Walking through the old quarters of Ahmedabad is like stepping into a living museum, where every corner whispers tales of bygone eras.

But perhaps the true soul of Ahmedabad lies not only in its monuments or landmarks, but also in the spirit of people. In the bustling chowks and vibrant marketplaces, one finds a melting pot of cultures and traditions, each contributing to the unique tapestry of life in the city.

About the Walk

When was the last time you felt lost in your own city? Getting lost – that’s exactly what we are doing on purpose in this walk.  There is no fixed route here. We just have a starting point and a fixed amount of time in which we have to figure our way out.

We walk through the narrow lanes of pols, stopping at places we find interesting. As we engage in conversation with each other and locals, we let our instincts help us decide where to turn next.

And of course, we also do photography. You will get introduced to the basics of street photography and I will help you capture the essence of the walk.
