Ideas, Comments, Exaggerations, Delusions, Rants, Inspirations, and Secrets. I like to show the heavenly in the ordinary. But sometimes, to echo George Orwell, "I write because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing." Sometimes.

Video shot with the Sony A7S
Daily life in the Indian holy cities of Rishikesh, Haridwar, and Devprayag. This region lies in the foothills of the Himalayas where the Ganges River descends from the mountains. I visited not knowing what to expect, and I was both awed and saddened by the experience. The beauty of nature and the Hindu ceremonies contrasted with the poverty and suffering on the streets. The people I met had a high-spirited resilience that seemed to stem from surviving and maintaining their devotion through a challenging life.
