Comments on: "weekly travel theme: contrast" (10)

  1. These pictures certainly fit the “contrast” theme, but I particularly am drawn to the photographs of India, which I found to be filled with contrasts, both within itself and in comparison to the world I generally reside in. At the same time many aspects of India fully resonate with who I really am.

    • India was an extraordinary place to visit. I am still sorting through the thousands of photos I took and hope to be posting some of them in the not too distant future

  2. Some lovely contrasts here. I agree about the photographs of India. It is a land of contrasts and it contrasts so vividly with western life we are forced to question our own values.

  3. Beautiful gallery!
