UT - Austin undergrads playing Holi.
Polaroid is dead they said. With the advent of digital cameras boasting of x mega pixels and y optical zoom it seemed as if the days of instant photography were over. But thanks to the “Impossible Project” by the few remaining Polaroid enthusiasts the magic of Polaroid is being rewoven.

A long awaited sunset. I forced my husband into accompanying me to this place when the sun was way up in the sky and the day, terribly hot. I was afraid of missing the sunset I had read about.

The sky looked like a dream. Cotton balls of clouds that appeared to rise from the distant horizon.

Like there are flower beds, I chanced upon this bed of chilies at the University yesterday. By all means it was for decoration purposes only. I suppose flowers don’t survive in this heat. But couldn’t help but laugh when one asian student passing by asked “Can we take a few home and use it for cooking? At least the dried ones”.

Where the earth, sky and ocean meet. And also the fog. 
At one of the many coves in Highway 1. There is possibly no highway more scenic than this one. Clear blue pacific ocean on one side and mountains on the other running through some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world.Hope to drive through the entire stretch of 1055kms someday.

"Careful now.                                                                                                                      We are dealing here with a myth.                                                                                    This city is a point upon a map of fog…"
Golden Gate Bridge at San Francisco covered in fog. 
Our attempts to view it’s splendor on a bright day was suddenly lost when this massive fog descended on the city without any warning whatsoever. One minute it was a lovely sunny day and the next minute we had to get our warmers out.

I am told I have proclivity towards lines, horizontal lines. Unconsciously of course. How many lines are there in this picture? I see 13.
