A bunch of photos that I should probably delete because I don't think they are that great. In fact, sometimes I am ashamed I ever uploaded them to the internet. Forgive me... :( For photos that I am more proud of, please pop over to the "Portfolio" gallery! :)Read More

The Rest of the India Story
So, I took this photo from across a slow-moving river. After shooting, I explored a bit more as the sun was setting, then returned to the same spot, rotating the camera about 45 degrees to the right. This is what I saw.
In the distance, you can see how it is a layer of smoke in the air. This is where families come from all over the Agra area to burn the bodies of recently deceased loved ones. They then throw some ashes in the river to begin the cycle again. Indians come from all over the area to visit this river, see the Taj Mahal, and visit other local temples. It’s a very peaceful place… I hope this photo helps to describe the general feeling of the place.
