India and Nepal in 10 Frames

1. My first breakfast meal in India. I loved the grilled veggie and cottage cheese cubes. 2. We went up a hill in Jaipur via these elephants. They were enormous! We were told that they would start their day really, like at 7am, and by 12nn, they’d go home to rest. You could see them […]

Papercut: Headdresses

Surprisingly, it was way more challenging photographing this papercut headdress than making it! I’m not kidding! It was pretty hard to look for a good angle because the headdress was white and too thin. I used rock paper for this piece.

Gardening

It’s official…all my plants are now lifeless. Aside from these reasons, I think they didn’t have enough space to grow? We have pocket gardens surround our house but they’re not really conducive to gardening because they’re too small and the neighbors can see your every move if you hang out there. They’re also the kind […]

When it comes to reading

June is over but the rain isn’t. Here’s to saying goodbye to summer and some other things that came with it. On another note, I’ve been trying to re-incorporate reading into my everyday life. Not only because my left brain is deteriorating by the minute and thus, has to be exercised with conscious effort,  but more […]
