i take the photos, and i make the picture (in that order)

India : people of the wayside (9 images and a shower……eventually )

My lover stands, on golden sands

I’m not very Indian. My passport has three tigers (or a three headed tiger, i can’t remember) on it, i have a tolerance (if not penchant) for spicy food, my skin is fairly tan, and when i sweat there might be a faint scent of curry; but i’m not very Indian (though to be fair, i’m not very anything) . Not to say i reject her; she rejects me. It would be a slight on the her and her offspring to be associated with me. Their urgency, their work ethic, their blunt use of language, and of course their dreaded line; all things that i have no part of and have no part of me. But one thing we do have in common, is the compulsion to fade into the background. With a population of 1.2 billion (give or take a million) it’s not very hard to be a part of the scenery or a spectator. Carrying on with your insignificant existence day after day not drawing attention to yourself until a few people are inconvenienced by your poorly timed/catered funeral. Something i have in common with my people i guess.

Well that and the drink.

Suffice to say ingrid's spa day didn't go as planned

Between the lines

Since he had seen everything, Jeffrey's eyes found little reason to be removed from the shadows

And that’s me done with India for now, i’m off to take a shower.
