D800 Mayor of Mumbai

This is a picture I captured of the Mr. Sunil Prabhu, Mayor of Mumbai. What an extraordinary gentleman. I had the opportunity s to spend the day and entire day at his house as his guest. If I lived in Mumbai I would vote for him. He was so generous with his time, whilst in the midst of running a city of 30,000,000.

D4 India 969

I captured this image on my first day of my Varanasi workshop sponsored by tumbhi.com.  What is amazing to see is how connected Indians are to the river Ganges. Time stops and the only thing that exists is the connection between the river and their spirit.

I captured this image on my first day in Mumbai.  I was on my way to my three day Varanasi workshop sponsored www.tumbhi.com. I was in Mumbai to do a radio interview with DJ Hirshikesh Kannan of Mumbia's 94.3 Radio One.
I was out walking with my "fixer" Dhawal Panjwani. after a 36 hour journey that started in Honolulu (via LA New York to Mumbai...don't ask me why) I was up or maybe never made it to sleep at 5 am to catch the morning light. This little girl caught my eye.

D800 IR India Image 262

I captured this image on the  second morning of my three day Varanasi workshop put on by the Indian talent pooling webiste tumbhi.com. I was waiting for our boat to take us up the
 Ganges. What was really exciting to me about this workshop was I was asked to teach Indians a new way of seeing their country. They were very keen to be opened up to the possibility. It was one of the most wonderful experiences I have ever had

D800 IR Half Dome

This image was captured on my last day in Yosemite. The plan was to spend four days at the White Wolf Lodge. On the Second day they evacuated everyone from the camp because of the Rim Fire. So much for the rest and relaxation I was hoping for.
