Billboards and Street Life- Two Challenges

Soho, New York

Inner lane in Gurgaon, India…..cattle returning home after a hard day of toil searching for fodder…..a contrast to the BMWs, Mercs and Audis of IT professionals of this Cyber City. I should add the fact that Gurgaon was initially agricultural land taken over by builders and corporate houses. There are still village pockets in between glass towers and the villagers think it right to let their cattle loose.

The Color Orange

“Orange, the blend of red and yellow, is a mixture of the energy associated with red and the happiness associated with yellow”.
Orange is ‘joy, warmth, heat, sunshine, enthusiasm, creativity, success, encouragement, change, determination, health, stimulation, happiness, fun, enjoyment, balance, sexuality, freedom, expression, and fascination’.
The ‘Orange’ of my travels from mandarins in Taizhou(China), sunset in Kasauli (India),a Brooklyn brick house, cables in Gurgaon (India), a worship idol (Hong Kong).
