Lumen Dei: Kumbh Mela Day 3

Lumen Dei: Kumbh Mela Day 3

A woman resting at the Qtub Minar.

Well, it has been really frustrating trying to post just a few words and a fewer  images. The net at the hotel we are staying at is almost non-existent. It has taken me two days of fighting with the net to post just three images. At the moment the broadband is actually a working for once, so I am hoping to post this before it go down again. So I will be brief.

Yesterday seemed to be about color. We had a wounderful day of shooting at the Qtub Minar and Nizamuddin Shrine today. The team is a fun mix of personalities. Today we visit Old Delhi in the morning and then in the evening take an overnight train to Varanasi. Here are a few sample shot from today’s outing.

OK – that is the day in brief. Now lets see if there is a working internet connection. Remember, you can click on the images to view them larger.

    Hi Matt,
    I'm just back from Cambodia and finally able to log on to follow your Kumbh Mela trip images and share you and your group's experiences. Thanks for putting in the extra effort it's taking to post from places where the internet is often times, less than cooperative. Hang in there, I am sure I speak for many of your blog followers when I say “we sympathize with you and appreciate your extra efforts”. Oh, please tell Gavin that I am sorry we didn't get the chance to hook up last month in Thailand. I'll buy him that beer next time, .perhaps in September.
    Matt, your images from day 1-2 and 3 in Delhi are fantastic, keep up the great work.
    Cheers, Karl
