Temple Dance

Today started so well. I woke up relatively early, spent an hour on the roof doing yoga and meditating. I even got a nap in. Everything was going so well. Then I tried to solve a small issue I was having with Adobe Photoshop. And this dragged into a several hour long tech session with an absolute moron who ended the conversation saying that he was escalating the issue, and I should hear back from Adobe in about 3 days.

On the bright side Im still posting a Pixelbip today, I did record some footage on how to split a Lightroom Catalog, and right after I post this article I’m going to spend some time adding some more products to my online store.

So the day is not an entire write off, but I did have to take a Xanax just to get me through my Adobe ordeal. I’m glad I don’t require to take anxiety medicine on a regular basis, but I am so glad that I have it available when I need it.

This image was shot in Bundi, India. I walked into a temple that was having a ceremony that I have no idea what was going on. But people were dancing and having a great time, and the music was loud enough that it could literally be heard through the entire town. Which is how I figured out that something interesting was going on in the first place.

I shot this on my FujiFilm X100T as I was trying to keep a low profile and not draw attention to myself. Unlike the multitude of other rude photographers who suddenly showed up and treated the place like the whole event was staged just so they could get their photos. I was so embarrassed to be a photographer and tourist that I left pretty quickly.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
