A Change of Scene
Apologies for not being around that much the last weeks, life’s been a bit hectic – but it also took me to one of the coolest (hottest?) places on this planet – I was fortunate enough to be able to spend a week in India!
It was a work trip, so the big camera had to stay at home… In hindsight, it was a good decision, because I wouldn’t have had time to shoot, anyway. Far too much work to do! But I’m not complaining. I’d bought a Nikon Coolpix for the trip, it’s small enough to fit into my pocket and I took it everywhere with me.
I actually ended up with only very few useable shots, most of them are blurry to some extent, because they were taken out of a moving car, through a window, or shot from the hip, without aiming properly. But… oh well, what can you do. I know what I WILL do – namely go back there, on a holiday, and bring the big D300 with me. Yep, that’s the plan. I haven’t seen nearly enough of India yet.
I was in Hyderabad, which is in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh – it’s monsoon season, which means it was a ‘nice and cool’ 35 degrees. Hmm. I didn’t quite agree with the ‘cool’ part, I was roasting hot!
I ate the best mangoes I’ve ever had in my life over there – the food in general is amazing, if extremely spicy for my taste. Even the ‘really mild’ things were spicy! But oh so lovely!
Photographs, at least a few, will follow soon – patience, my friends :)
