liftoff, version 2.0

First post in a while, so I picked a favourite. One of many shots taken over the course of one evening spent on the battlements of the old Bal Samand hunting lodge wall shooting down into the lake as the sun set. 4 hours, 2 batteries and 3 memory cards exhausted, and one of the best evenings EVER.


On the Hunt

Great White Egrets fishing at sunset on the Bal Samand Lake in Jodhpur. The lake is man-made, part of the old ruling family’s hunting lodge, and the ruins of the buildings that used to stand in the lake bed before it was flooded are still visible here and there, like in this shot.

View out the window of the wing of an Etihad Airways Boeing 777, somewhere between Abu Dhabi and Toronto. I think I was mildly psychotic from sleep deprivation by this point in the flight, so I have not the faintest idea where we were. I couldn’t even narrow it down to a continent or major ocean. Taken on my trusty little Sony point-and-shoot, now at rest in that big studio in the sky. I miss that camera.
