flowers in my window

flower sellers, train surfers, glue sniffers, dream watchers--
the children of bombay
caught in cameras and car windows
and an unforgiving city

the long wait

"this tattoo is from my heavy metal phase, this is the goa phase, this is when i discovered photography..."

"my best friends live here, they're twin brothers. it's like even with this i can't choose."

"i told my dad there are only three things important to me: nature, oxygen, and love. i don't think he understood."

"i'm going to pick apples, crush grapes, earn some money and go to the boom festival in portugal with my boyfriend. he's in belgium at the moment. i just got back from france. this is my first train ride in over a year. it hasn't bloody changed. still the long wait."

city of highs

6 am at the highest airport in the world.
the city of leh. also home to the highest tennis court, the highest swimming pool, the highest restaurant, the highest motor-able road, the highest pass, the highest tunnel, the highest lake, the highest mountain, the highest high.

"the best camera is the one that's with you"

chase jarvis said that. which i'm guessing most internet-friendly folk would know, but it's worth a repeat, especially here on this blog where the population of cell phone pictures has been flagging off late. what has caused me to stop seeing photograph-worthy things around me? evidently, with everything that's been going on the past couple months, i've been spending far more much time looking inside my head  than outside it. [proof: i spent over a month in himachal pradesh amidst gorgeous himalayan baby ranges and never even took my camera out of my bag.] it's a good/necessary experience, one i'd recommend to anyone, but it's time to start looking outwards again. so if only as a reminder to myself, these links you're probably already familiar with: chase jarvis' iphone photos portfolio and live feed from his iphone photo app.

in the spirit, past cell phone photos on this blog here... and hopefully more to come.

i've spent this entire week in my head
not doing anything concrete, pretty much just sitting and thinking about everything going on
there's a fine line between watching your thoughts and getting involved in them
i'm not always sure which one i'm doing, but every once in a while i think i get a glimpse of the line between the two
and it is beautiful.
