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.

Digital Pinhole

Advertisements Purists Scoff at Digital Pinhole Photography In my last blog, I wrote about pinhole photography, and how this is a unique form of photography.

KANCHENJUNGA

Advertisements Kanchenjunga. The Waves of Awe I love the mountains, but this was not always the case. After living in England when I was eight years old, I spent a year in Delhi.

Kankhal. Shiva’s Townlet

Advertisements The Shiva Temple in the Townlet And so, the time has come to talk about the last place we visited. After Rishikesh, Kunjapuri, Neelkanth, and Haridwar, we went to Kankhal. I don’t know how to describe Kankhal, because it is not a town, neither is it a village or hamlet. Nor is Kankhal aContinue reading “Kankhal. Shiva’s Townlet”
