looking back

Published on May 15, 2011, by in India, Photography, Travel.

As I continue to re-edit my travel photos from 2010, I’m revisiting some of my unbelievable experiences from that trip. It also gives me something to do as I navigate the spring allergy season in Chengdu. My eyes are constantly stinging and watery, my sinuses feel like someone shoved a fistful of dry pine needles up my nose, my breathing is labored and shallow, and my cough persistent.  This is the worst allergy season in recent memory.  The other day I decided to visit my favorite massage therapist, but before I even reached the university gate I was gasping for breath and wheezing.  I gave it up. My next purchase:  a deionizer to purify the air in my apartment. And a face mask.     Watcher – Jama Masjid (Friday Mosque), Delhi, India     Sher-e-Punjab Restaurant, Manali, India -  before the dinner rush     Blurred monk photographer, Dharamsala, India – below Bagsu Falls       Group – main square, Dharamsala, India     Old town Varanasi, India – lone walker
