MANHATTAN – What a day. I visited Oliver at home, did some head shots for Maria at her office and walked all over Manhattan getting from here to there. Very nice early Spring light. Given the headshot assignment I was carrying a lot of gear, which I hate, but it clearly pays to have the right tools.
Day 3449 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this date eight years ago (day 527 of one photograph every day): big tree shadow.
AJABGARH INDIA – We have made the longish trip across India to Rajasthan to stay at a Aman resort here, the Amangarh. The idea is to actually rest from the rigors of the earlier part of the trip before the long flight home. There is actually a Pompeii sized ruin not far from here at Bhangarh, where I spent the morning.
Day 3057 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this date eight years ago (day 135 of one photo every day): Richard
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I caught an early Acela to Boston for some meetings, so I found myself in the vicinity of Penn Station (the most vile portal on any major city anywhere in the world) pre=dawn in the rain. I actually got some ok images.
Day 2239 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day six years ago (day 48): The Seagrams Building at night from the balcony of the Racquet & Tennis Club.
MUMBAI INDIA – We had a day of touring with a so-so guide – one of our few disappointments on this trip. We visited a large, mostly outdoor laundry complex, there laundry is gathered, washed by hand, and returned to the owners under a system much like the one dramatized in the movie “Lunchbox”. Amazing actually. We also visited the Anglican St. Thomas Cathedral which is an ok example of Colonial architecture, but has a remarkable collection of memorials for those who gave their lives in the service of the East India Company and the the Raj. Pictures from both spots below.
Day 1,934 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
On this day five years ago (day 108): Warren CT shot in infrared.
NEAR UDAIPUR INDIA – Some days are better than others. This was one of the better days. We finished up at the Leopard camp with a morning walk through an agricultural area, and on the way to Udaipur stopped at a remarkable Jain temple. I had trouble editing so I’m posting a mini gallery. The dome is 22 (!) frames stitched.
Day 1,929 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.
On this day three years ago (day 833): Birds. A Hitchcockesque moment.
AGRA INDIA – Well, I couldn’t decide which of the Taj Mahal pictures is best so you’re going to have to suffer through a mini gallery today. This is one of the place with great visual mojo – beyond merely being beautiful and an icon. It invite languid exploration.
Day 1,927 of one photo every day for the rest of my life.
