I watched this man painting #hanuman with his hands. I’m not sure how often he does this bit I think it may be quite often. #varanasi #india #devotion #painting #shrine #iphoneonly #mobilephotography

I took this image at #TheTajMahal. I love that you can see him gazing up. I can feel his conviction. His hands represent his love and devotion.  #baba #iphoneonly #mobilephotography #trover

I am going to need to go back to Varanasi for several reasons, but one of them is to do a series of the #rickshaws.  This is an image of the drivers #hands. I love the rings and the nails. There is something so elegant to me, dirt and all. #varanasi #india #rickshaw #streetlife

anotherscreamingfangirl asked: hi! i just wanted to tell you how gorgeous your photos of india are :) i was there in 2008 (wow so long ago- how did that happen?) and seeing your photos brought back all the great memories. do u only use your iphone or do u have a digital camera too? jodhpur and varanasi were my favourite cities i think. i would love to go back one day.

Wow! Thank you so much. I am mostly on Instagram so I was slow to see this. YES they are all taken on my iPhone. And so far they are all straight shots. I’ll probably work/play/app lots but I haven’t even gotten through the first edit. AND yes! I loved Varanasi!

I took this image on a Sunday and saw another little one getting shaved. Maybe just for the first dip in the #Ganga ? Not sure if Sunday was significant or not. #varanasi #india #barber #iphone5s #mobilephotography  (at Prayag Ghat, Varanasi)
