Washington, DC is a place where tie clips are still a thing, where bow ties are still worn in seriousness, and where men still wear fedoras.

It’s not hard to find someone to mend a shirt or sew a button on in India –  I loved all the craftsmen plying their trade in the open.

Traffic in India   2 comments

Traffic in India was amazing – despite the lack of adherence to rules, it flowed like water. If you want to make a U-turn, you just pull into oncoming traffic, which slows down without any discernible annoyance. If you want to cross the street, you simply step out and traffic will veer around you (scary, but it works!).

Captured these scenes in Rexburg, Idaho moments before the total eclipse (Aug 21, 2017). These reactions paled in comparison to the reactions during totality, but I was too busy enjoying that moment to take pictures.

Caught on the Friday afternoon train out of Grand Central Terminal in New York.  I liked the contrast of posture and attire, yet they both evoke the same question:”Are we there yet?” as they wait to get to their destination and start their weekend.
