Early morning on the ghats of Varanasi India

Bigger Photographs are Better

/
It's been spoken about a million times before I am sure but I think the way we view the bulk of our photographs on mobile phones these days is changing photography, and not necessarily in a good way. Why is it bad? Because often bigger photographs are better.

Traveling to Varanasi

/
We had a lot of ground to cover on our four week trip around the vast plains of India but as a lifelong sufferer of travel sickness I avoid busses and cars like the plague, unless it is me that's driving of course. And although I've driven cars and motorhomes in many countries all over the world I would draw the line at venturing onto the roads of India behind the wheel.
Arrival in India

Arrival in India

/
I am the kind of traveller who likes to be prepared. Prior to our arrival in India, Chennai to be more precise, I'd done a lot of research and felt organised. I knew what to expect, where to go and what we needed to do. However, as I quickly learned, this was India and I wasn't prepared for what was to come at all.
