    I agree with everyone. Beautiful images. I like the fact that you are respectful of another culture and are showing what you found intriguing there.
    All the best with your show of these images.

    A day in India

    [color=black]Thank you both for the affirmation. I found the Indian culture to be unique. Many cultures are friendly, but it took a good 12 days there to really find out why they manage such excellence in the practice of being a good host. Case in point: we ran out of bottled water and I mentioned I was heading across the street to get some to put in the fridge. I was directed to please take a seat. With a flick of his wrist, a young man ran out of the room and in less than 3 minutes had ice cold bottled water for us. (one thing we couldn’t do was drink the water. Not that it wasn't safe, it was just different enough that it could cause us some travelers woes).[/color]



    [color=black]I said thank you, it really wasn't necessary, he replied, "No, it was my pleasure; it is my duty!" [/color]



    [color=black]It then struck me as to how quintessentially ingrained it is in their culture to make the guest feel comfortable, appreciated, and honored. This was a repeated theme in all that I saw, regardless of who it was I was dealing.[/color]

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Having worked with Indian people for years, I too have always found them open and friendly. I've never been to India, but I would like to.

    Robert, if/when you do go, you should visit the state of Rajasthan. You will have lots of oppurtunities to shoot Velvia, especially in this state!

    I really need to get up to Mumbai as well. I can't believe how much there is to see there.

    Robert,

    Have you considered joining a print exchange? I personally would love to have one of your wonderful images of India. I have some infrared images of Las Vegas just developed.

    Thanks for the invitation Kate,

    At the moment I am still setting up the rest of the darkroom. Once that is in place I can give it more consideration.

    I must admit, however, most of the work I do is for resale, that being said, I have planned on the India images being more of a public domain process.

    Kindest Regards,
