The Inner Sanctum

This was found deep inside one of the recesses on the outer periphery of Humayun’s tomb in Delhi. The deep reds and stained walks gave the place an unearthly feeling.

Akbar’s Royal Bathing Chamber

Akbar the Great was quite a guy I am sure. This was shot in his palace near Agra. Most people go to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal, but in my estimation, this is a much more exotic and interesting place to explore.

The Entrance from which the Old Hindu priest disappeared

Deep inside one of the temples, I found this secret tiny doorway and arch, stained with a deep red dye.

Carrying 100 Bags of Grain in Delhi

While walking through the streets of Delhi, I spotted this guy soldiering on, carrying just a small load through the packed streets.

The Secret Chambers of Beautiful India

I am thankful to my host Anil who was able to set me up with some amazing guides that took me to the most unusual and seemingly secret places. It was just amazing… the only downside is that I am sworn to secrecy on the location. In case anyone else has ever been there, then there is more than one iota of a chance that this crazy place called the internet will soon tell you where this place is. The internet has a habit of finding out such things.

Doesn’t this want to make you pack your bags for a week’s adventure? What’s stoppin’ ya?!! (I mean, other than excuses)

The India Gate

This is the famous India Gate in Delhi.  It was a bitter hot and humid day and the water nearby somehow seemed to make everything hotter!

The Old Sikh with Suspenders

There was simply too much to shoot in the dusty streets of Mumbai! I only spent about an hour on the streets between meetings, but I found a lot of interesting things…

Downtown Delhi on a Seasonably Hot Day

Cindy and I had an hour between meetings in Delhi.  We ended up going off through the random streets here and there to see what we could find.  She was looking for rugs and I was looking for antique chess sets.  We found neither, but we did find a lot of interesting and chaotic activity…

I textured this, as part of my upcoming textures tutorial.  This thing is so overdue that I am SURE you guys think I am TEASING you now about it.. but it really is coming.  The video tutorial and the textures are huge – it will be almost a 1 gigabyte download, so it takes awhile to set up all the logistics.  Actually I am not doing anything – Ken is helping me out over at FastSpring.  I just made the video and he is doing all the hard work of setting up the download processes!
