The train door, one of my favourite places in the world.
You will be hard pressed to find a more accessible, impartial and thorough guide to tour the length and breadth of this incredible country. Oh the distant hills, the dense jungles, the deep ghats; the wide rivers, the glorious sunsets, the shanty villages, the crown jewels; the green fields, the high-speed curves, the rolling countryside; the people, the stories… I could go on, but I have a train to catch.
Go take a train yourself.
I recently had an amusing conversation with @pricelessjunk about Instagram, digital photo “pimping” and the iPhone camera. Now I’ve made no secret of my love for Instagram, but I do understand Priya’s dissaproval of “blatantly converting digital images to lomo- type of images”.
Anyway, both photos in this post are SOOMiC (straight out of my iPhone camera), as promised. Well, almost. I straightened (and thus cropped) the frame, but they’re free from any other digital manipulation.
Also, if you’re anything like the typical smart, tasteful, art loving visitors of this blog, you owe it to yourself to check out START Magazine, Priya’s fantastic publication documenting up and coming Indian artists. The sixth and latest issue just came out a few days back.
