Waiting for a Blessing

I went into this small Hindu temple to do a bit of exploration. The colors and scents were rich and I did my best to stay out of the way of the blessing cycle. The priest asked me if I wanted a blessing as well, but I said no because I did not want to dilute Vishnu’s awesome power. The priest nodded in agreement, so I must have made some pretty good sense.

    I am enjoying viewing your pictures very much. I’ve saved several to use as desktop wallpaper!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures with us. I came across your site via My Yahoo home page,, when it was offered as a segment to add to my “already” full page ;-), and I’m so glad I did!! Great work and it’s much appreciated. I look forward to seeing the next picture every morning!!!!

    I love your pictures they’re awesome!! How do you travel around the world so fast? Or maybe you took these pictures before and are recounting how you got them to us.
    Thanks so much!!

  • Haha thanks all. I post pics out of chronological order… Just to keep things fresh. If I am actually THERE, I’ll say in the blog post “Today I did blah blah”… otherwise, it’s sort of obvious past tense like this one.

    I’m with Gail. Yahoo recommended your site so I took a look. The first visit totally blew me away.

    I thank you for sharing your unique perspective on life with us. Thank you as well for the opulent images that capture the imagination even more than they capture the eye.

  • Haha thanks Electro and Gail — very much! 🙂

    Thank Yahoo for recommending your website. I love the surreality of your pictures. It’s as if we are right there in the scenes with you and your camera. I don’t have the means to travel so I am enjoying and thanking GOD for HIS beautiful world and its many facets. I thank HIM for persons such as you who share the beauty with others.

    I am one of your hundreds of thousands of fans, in awe of your remarkable skill and judgement. If I may, what is your real name? Are you an established pro, or a gifted amateur? That’s none of my business, I’m sure. But I ask so I can begin bugging Amazon – I keep hoping that you’ll PUBLISH A BOOK – preferrable a cofee-table book – of your work, methods, and memoirs.



  • haha thanks… I am looking at doing a book — but nothing signed yet. Again, thanks! 🙂
