I had been waiting for a quiet spell, you know, that lovely time where you aren’t busy and want to do something purely creative. I was thinking that I would sit quietly and redesign my website from scratch. I remembered something wise I read on a fridge:
“Don’t wait until you are in the mood to clean the fridge”.
In true fridge cleaning spirit I decided the best plan would be to go cold turkey; switch it off, empty it out, and only put back things I really wanted. So here I am this morning looking at my photo database, over 8 terabytes of commercial photographs spanning the last 15 years work, and that’s only the digital stuff, what about the film and the personal projects? Where to begin?
Here are a handful of the photos I took in the Indian Himalayas a couple of years ago. An Indian born friend organised the trip, a tramp to the base camp of Nanda Devi (4,500m) via a centuries old disused donkey trade route to China, not yet discovered by tourism. From there it was a brief walk to look at the border of India and China.
