Everyone knows the Taj Mahal, but there are plenty of other and very impressive tombs in the area.

Tailors of India   1 comment

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!).

While cows are easily spotted on Bangalore’s streets, the only elephants I saw were Ganesh figures on taxis’ dashboards.

“Take a ride on the Reading”   Leave a comment

After visiting the Reading Terminal in Philadelphia you’ll never look at that Monopoly chance card the same way again. The train station has been converted into a market for regional foods many years ago, and I enjoyed a couple of lunches (cheese steak!!) there this past week while attending a conference at the convention center next door.

Saw the quintessential California highway stereotype last week in San Diego: a blonde in a convertible with her lapdog on her lap. Priceless.

Serenity in DC   1 comment

I know that title is an oxymoron, given what is going on in this city these days, but it didn’t seem to bother these two as they enjoyed a quiet Friday evening sunset over the Lincoln Memorial.

Cherry Blossom Time!   Leave a comment

Walked to the Mall after work on Friday and captured these photos. A wonderful time to be in DC, except this year it’s unseasonably cold. Nevertheless, the water’s edge was packed with tourists (i.e. camera-toting) and locals (i.e. picnicking).

Frost Drops and Stalactites   Leave a comment

Captured these leaves with frozen drops of rain on a recent walk in the neighborhood, using my umbrella to ensure a uniform background. The second shot reminded me of stalactites in a cave.

Instead, I’m happy to have simply inspired others. In this case, Fall Out Boy’s new album coming in January. Clearly, they must have seen my post from August featuring a hotel lobby in New York. 🙂
