Baby bump on a Wednesday

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

It has been a busy week, it feels as though I have not been home other then to sleep. I woke up early today to drop off J at the airport for his trip.

I really thought that being awake since 4 this morning would really have me beat by now but I feel good. After work I headed out to photograph a growing baby belly and although it is a bit late, I wanted to share some photos from the shoot before I head off to sleep.

Diwali 2012

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

This weekend I decided to take a walk down to the Children's Discovery Museum. I was a bit hesitant since of course I was without a child. But there I went, in hopes to take some photos of the big event  going on.

The festival of lights, Diwali was being celebrated though out the museum. I had never heard of such festival but as I visited the different stations and listened for the radio announcer's voice. He explained that Diwali is one of India's biggest and possibly most important holiday of the year.

He asked different people from the audience how many reasons they had to celebrate Diwali and everyone had different number. However there was one man who had just one answer. He explained that it was the conquering of good over evil. The people light clay lamps in rows, outside their homes to symbolize the light that will protect them from spiritual darkness.

It was really nice to be part of it all; the dancing, drum playing and story telling just made everything so real. 

The back burner

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Among the many things on my to-do list, starting a blog was one of those things that I had placed on the back burner. I had followed so many different blogs and felt a bit intimidated at how many of them were so well written.

It was not until these last couple of days that I really got to thinking about all the things I would blog about. The meals I would cook, the photographs I would take and the adventures I would take part in. They would all some how make up for my lack of ability to write. 

With that in mind, we start our adventure. What lies ahead is yet to be told, but it does not really matter since there are no expectations and no one to give accounts to (the only benefit of having no followers). We shall see how everything goes. How long or short of a ride this will be.

Good night...till the next blog post.
