I shot this photo as I was entering a temple in Delhi, India. It was achingly hot and my bare feet were burning as my green dress was blowing in the fiery breeze. For some reason, I love this shot and it epitomizes my trip to Delhi in the summer.
Photo taken near Delhi, India. I am always inspired by modes of transportation and especially found it fascinating in Nepal and India.

When I first saw the Taj Mahal, I was taken aback by it’s majestic beauty. It took my breath away. To see such an incredibly, spectacular sparkling white work of art in all the […]
