Last night, I dreamed I was wearing a sari. It was pink silk, embroidered with gold and green, and I was so happy to realize that having it on must mean I had finally made it to India.
No surprise. Anthony Bourdain when to Mumbai and Calcutta on NO RESERVATIONS last night, and a few days before, I watched The Darjeeling Limited on pay per view. (Which I didn’t expect to like, honestly, but it was quirky and fun, and what I loved was the train, so beautifully decorated).
Anyway, looking for a photo to illustrated a dream of a sari, I found this photographer’s work on Flickr. His photos are saturated with color, and a sense of composition and beauty that led me to wander around his collections for more than an hour. Perhaps you will enjoy them, too.
When I look at these photos, I wonder how anyone could not yearn to visit India.
