The Office

Advertisements Do our Work Conditions Affect Us? How many of you work at home or go to an office? Unless you live in a cold country, there is a strong possibility you have an air-conditioned office.

Flat & AWOL

Advertisements A Bout of Food Poisoning I have been flat on my back for a week, and everything I planned has gone out of the window. There’s a simple explanation for this: food poisoning. I’ve also been AWOL because I always find myself on the move. Tears help the recovery process. Allow me to earnContinue reading “Flat & AWOL”


Advertisements Does this boy have water security? Do you? I shot this image many years ago at Crawford Market in Bombay.

Long Ago in Agra

Advertisements Poor Folk of Agra It’s been a long time since I traveled to Agra. Once upon a time, I visited the town every few months. I have never understood why the old Mughals chose the city as their capital for many years. It is a dirty, polluted town, and the only reason to visitContinue reading “Long Ago in Agra”

Never Stop Learning

Advertisements Last week, I wrote about digital pinhole photography. I did not write about my experiences using film-based cameras, in particular some medium-format vintage cameras.
