India Gallery

April 2, 2007

It’s been hard to find time and head-space to continue posting about India, andindiadamon-069.jpg about the transition returning home. So much is going on, the pace is so confusing to adjust to, and I’m still wrapping my head around the journey. I loved India like crazy. It was so upsetting to leave. I both hate and love being home. /sigh. So while I’m getting my act together, I thought I’d pass along a link to my full India gallery — all 931 images and movies for anyone who might want a deeper look. You can access them here. (Slideshow mode seems the most efficient way to view things in Picasa — just set the speed to your preference or click through manually once the show starts.)

When I get to know Picasa better, I’ll do a (much, much shorter) favorites album, but if you’ve been reading this site, you’ve pretty much seen that highlights reel. Consider the gallery the self-indulgent director’s cut with hours of extra footage on the collector’s DVD. Let me know what you like, what you don’t like, what’s just as you imagined it, and what’s surprising. Are there things you wish you could see, or things you’re glad that you didn’t. Tell me about it…



  1. As vividly as you’ve described everything, seeing more (and more!) pictures has been incredible.

    India seems to be everything at once, but your select impressions in writing and the flood of images have given me an intense feeling of what it might be like, making it both personal and overwhelming.
    Every picture is worthy of comment from the architecture to the people to the sweet puppies. I especially like the one of the boy running along side the rickshaw–how he’s looking back and moving forward at the same time (she writes innocently, while selfishly hoping this one will make it to flickr so she can give it a favourite star). The pictures of the girls in the garden are lovely, as is the garden. I don’t know why it seems strange to recognize dahlias, roses, marigolds and to see expanses of grass in some of the other pictures. And now for some chamomile in the form of tea bags for my tired eyes… ;-)Thanks for sharing so many amazing images.

  2. Thank you so much for taking the time to read, look, and offer your kind words. Sometimes this blogging thing has felt insular and hyper-personal, sharing things that matter to me, from so far away, never knowing if I’m really writing or photographing anything anyone can truly connect with. So happy that you were able to. I, too, was surprised by the dahlias.

    And re: boys chasing rickshaws on flickr… ask, and it shall be so. (You did, and it is. 🙂 )
