And then we went to town…

What do you do while you have 5 free days in New Delhi?

You go see the sights is what you do!

After a (somewhat good) goodnight’s sleep and just enough breakfast to fill our bellies, we were off.

First stop, the India Gate of course…

After being dropped off by our Uber driver, we had the daunting task to try to cross the street… no small feat to anyone who knows what Delhi traffic is really like.

And it begins…

There is always big anticipation when it comes time to go to a new country.

What is it going to be like?

Is it going to be just like all those articles I’ve read… the images I’ve seen?

Am I going to love it, or hate it?

What if we flew all of these miles to wind up in a place that is completely unbearable?

And then it comes time to get off the plane.

India’s magic…

Picture in your mind two ladders.

Both the same, about 20 feet high.

Now one has 20 rungs to get up to the top, the other only 2.

The first ladder being very easy to climb all the way to the top, while the second would be impossible.

This is the way I would describe life in India…

Why do we travel?

Is that even a question? Or better yet… is there even an answer?

The world is a big place….

Big.

How big? Sure, we can measure the distance in miles, the oceans and continents can be counted with ease and with a steady mind you could even name off quite a few countries.

But what about everything in the in-between?

What’s in your photo?

As the famous television ad states…

“What’s in your wallet?”

I’m asking the question of “what’s in your photo”?

When you take a photo, what is it that your trying to say? Does your photo do more than just capture the moment? Does it also capture what it’s like to be in that moment?

Of course you can’t smell what’s in a photo, or feel the breeze like you did as you stood there and took the photo…

In need of technical help!

Alright travel photography friends…

I am looking to replace my current camera which is a Canon 70D.

I love the camera, but it is quite heavy for what I am using it for. I am weighing my options as far as a smaller more compact camera. Mirrorless? Who has used these? Do you like them?

My main focus is being able to travel with less bulk but yet still have the ability for amazing pictures. Fast focus, image stability etc… all the good stuff!

Any and all thought on this will be much appreciated and I look forward to hearing what you have for me!

Thanks in advance!

What a Trip…

So this will be a very quick post, as I just wanted to make sure you all know that I didn’t forget about you! We are now back home from our amazing trip and slowly but surly getting back into the swing of things. This time around the time change didn’t hurt us as bad as it usually does, which is great, but the cold and flu bug decided to visit me instead. I never get sick, but this was a doozy.

So now that normal life has found us again, I will have some time to start sorting through the thousands of pictures we took and get my things in order for my next post! Until then, I just wanted to share a handful of my favorite photos (so far) with you and hope you come back to see some more later!
