If you followed my blog at all the first time around, you may notice that this time there are fewer photos presented in each post. This has been the source of an internal struggle for me. On my previous trip I became very accustom to taking a plethora of photos everywhere I turned. Charlie can attest to that fact. My habit was both rewarding and restricting. I reaped the rewards later when I was able to look back over the photos and reminisce of all my experience; however, living behind a camera can restrict the ability to fully live in the here-and-now. This short trip seems too short to hide behind a camera, thus I have limited my photo taking to (mostly) snapping shots of subjects and experience that are uncommon and/or meaningful to me personally. I am laying aside the old camera to be fully present in the current experience; because forfeiting the possibility of a good photograph to truly live deep in an experience is worth much more than a thousand words.
That being said, I will try to share a few photos throughout the blog, and here is a few to start with. Many of these are familiar scenes to me.
|The road in front of the Rehab Institute: Bagayam Junction just ahead.|
|The road to Mrs. George's house. Charlie, it is paved now!!!|
|Some of the many school children who swarmed me standing midst the local dairy farm.|
|(Charlie, the woman still sits and waits. After two years she still maintains her post!)|
|This shop is the landmark used to find Mrs. George's home.|
