I really loved visiting Humatun’s Tomb in New Delhi all these years ago. I loved this stone lattice with the two people sitting on the other side. It would have been fascinating to do the same shot a little earlier or a little later to see how the light penetrated the room. Guess that’s an excuse to go again.
Entering Humayun’s Tomb

The only time I had the leisure of visiting a bit of Dehli, I went to Humayun’s Tomb and spent a good amount of time there. It’s a marvelous place, and one of the things I loved was these alignments of portals, identically shaped. I need to go back to India…

Taking tuktuks in India or Thailand can be scary, but it’s also a unique way to experience the city. I just love it. At the back of Surinder’s tuktuk in Dehli I kept trying to shoot him in his mirror and this shot was the best one I got. I really like it.
Sneaking by the Side Door

I’ve been to India three times, but two of these were so brief that I had no time for photos. The first time though, I’d taken a day off and convinced a very friendly tuk-tuk driver (Surinder) to show me the Gurdwara Bangla Sahib, the biggest Sikh place of worship in New Delhi. After the visit, I was impressed by this magnificent silver door, but just as I was putting the camera up to shoot, this man came in and sneaked by.
