Trying to choose images for this blog post has been an overwhelming endeavor. So many things, so many people, so many places, I can’t even remember what happened where. But I think this is it. Our trip to India, with commentary. I’ve also instated a new feature on Wednesdays for images I couldn’t fit here, and anything else there might be to come.
I’ll be choosing 1 commenter on this post at random to receive a signed, framed 8×10 print of their choice from this blog. One entry per commenter, must comment by March 1st, 2010! Good luck!
Varanasi, at sunrise. Pilgrims come to bathe in holy waters at the sacred ghats in this of the oldest cities in the world.
Taj Mahal, at the break of dawn. Always cutting through the haze that sits over everything.
Through the haze, a man on a small boat, in the river just behind the Taj. Did you know they planned to build an identical one across the river, from black marble?
The stunning fort at Orchha ruined forts for us.
Geckos in our hotel.

The locals insist that Husbone get a ride on the Ox Cart that runs the mill that has supplied water to the town for hundreds of years.
Giant fruit bats in a random tree. So many of them.
Prayer bells and picture frames.

Bonding with Camels at a Camel farm. We had camel milk kulfi (ice cream) and it was delicious.
Then he kissed me on the cheek like a gentleman.
The desert. 15 miles from Pakistan.
Our guide with our camel.
