Christ Church beneath the supermoon

Christ Church, Shimla, is one of the enduring legacies of the British Raj. Here it stands illuminated by the spotlights from the front and the cresting moon in behind.

We’ll get by with a little help from our friends.

I love this photo. And the funny thing is, it’s NOT a great photo by any of the general measures: you can’t see anyone’s face, the colours aren’t fantastic, the lighting is “ok” with nothing exciting to stand out and the surrounds are blah blah. However, I cannot deny that my eye is always drawn first…

The School Bus

Day Fourteen

> Today was another travel day. This time the inverse to what we did two days ago: LONG bus ride from Ooty to Bangalore. We had purchased tickets yesterday and with our newfound confidence in the “system” arrived only 15 minutes or so before departure. Long enough to buy some “bikkies” for the trip 🙂…

Day Nine

Hal is fresh from a launch activity at the Cairo Center for Conflict Resolution & Peacekeeping in Africa and … had a pen. It made a nice foreground to our morning view over tea and toast 🙂 If you can believe it – that is a cart FULL of raisins! We meandered streets of the…
