My India Adventure
This is old news to a lot of you reading, but in December, I had the great privilege and honor to attend a friend's wedding in India. As many of you also know, I have a hard time even trying to begin to describe the experience. To sum up, though, it was incredible! Our friend's family took such good care of us, and made us feel right at home. We stayed mainly in Kolkata, but ventured down into the jungles on a tiger safari (alas, we didn't see any tigers). I don't look at things quite the same way since returning, and I think it's been a positive thing. And from a strictly visual sense, it was almost overwhelming. So much color, so much texture, just so much to look at. Not that there isn't a lot to look at in DC, but it's so very different in almost every respect...
I took this photo of Andy on the roof of the house that our friends had rented for the duration of the wedding festivities. I've never been so tempted to make so many color photos (I'm usually a b&w person), and this is one of the minority colorless images from the trip. I'll post more images, along with information about what's going on in the photos, as I pick them out!
