Four Hands

These four hands are on a wall on the temple side of Hampi in India. There were much more in the row. Hampi has two sides to it. There is the temple side and the hippie side. I’m currently living under a mosquito net on the hippie side of the river.

Very different feeling than Anjuna, but I can see how people get stuck and end up spending weeks on end here. Accommodations come to only $3 USD per night for a lumpy lovely mattress and mosquito net that is on a hot roof in the middle of the jungle. I had monkeys waking me up at 6:20am this morning. Fortunately they were not flinging poo at me.

Image is only edited in Lightroom. Pretty simple adjustments really.

Today was spent with a mass amount of hiking, hanging out with monkeys, swiming in rivers surrounded by moon rocks, and hiking even more in the hills above the guest house I am living on top of.

Tomorrow will involve renting scooters and checking out some local lakes and waterfalls as well as many other amazing sites here on the hippy side of Hampi.


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 and writing about my experiences at
