my favorite photos…

 i’m  back home…
and these are my favorite photographs of india…
 they range from sunsets out my hotel veranda
to nuns chanting at the dalai lama temple…
images of mcleod ganj from every angle
 to treks into the mountains…
 color from holi
 to images of women working…
 and children making art…
 sculptures of avalokitesvara…
 to multi colored tibetan temples…
 curious young monks
 and peaceful lit interiors…
 to women making color wheels
 and hanging my students’ gift of peace art
 from meaningful signs along the roadways
 to beautifully painted buildings…
 and decorations for skin…
 from evening aarti and puja
 to monkeys eating…
 and holi donkeys that match outdoor art
 from children painting
 to merchandise in the streets
 even touristy images of gates
 and park mehndi…
 as well as hanuman sculptures for sale
 and more mehndi to be had…
 from devi exhibitions
to a husband and wife crafter team
and everything in between….
stay tuned for more images, artwork,
journal pages, thoughts and more as i
share my 3rd journey to india with you:)
xonamaste,
