Moto X 2014

Best of 2014 - 2016 Part 1

At the end of 2013 I compiled my favorite photos from that year. My life became much busier after that and I haven't been able to find the time to keep this website updated as much as I'd have liked. In the time since my last compilation, I've traveled to 5 different countries, covered protests, and taken a cross-country road trip to move to a new state. 

I now have a slightly more regular schedule that I've more or less adjusted to, which means it's time for a new compilation of my travels and adventures in the last 3 years. Enjoy, and perhaps be reminded of some pleasant nostalgia. 

Whoops

I forgot to bring my flash drive with the edited shots from Korea, so here are some shots from India that I still haven't put up, or that have only been on Instagram. Or maybe I've put them up already and I just forgot. They aren't in any particular chronological order, or even from the same city. All shot on Moto X 2014.

If you guessed that this wood is for burning corpses, you are correct. If you're curious about what they look like while they're burning, why are you wondering that?

Kolkata airport I believe.

Breakfast in Agra the day of our departure. You might be able to see the Taj Mahal to the left in this panorama. 

Some breakfast we had in this cool resort mountain. We stayed in some old British colonial mansion which was extravagant and fancy, as you can probably tell by the picture. It was very nice and fancy and there wasn't any hot water in the shower so I got to wash off with buckets which I was actually quite fond of.  

Gates and Bridges

I always have mixed feelings about traveling with nothing other than my phone to take pictures. The portability factor is the obvious bonus, but I really wish I had more flexibility while editing. The first image here turned out really well I think, and HDR is definitely getting  a lot better on phones, and while I'm happy enough with the second, there's still some very obvious blurring that happened because of poor autofocusing. 

The Last of Delhi

And we'll wrap up Delhi with a couple pictures of tombs. Not too shabby, but it's not exactly the Taj Mahal of tombs. That's next. The image the top is Isa khan Niazi's tomb, and the much more impressive one on the bottom is Humayun's tomb.

Anyone notice an overplayed theme in my photos?

I thought about cutting down those trees that were blocking the view but I figured it'd be too much work for the heat
