Today was my first full day in Chennai. Well I guess technically yesterday was, but I had a 5 hour nap in the middle of the day so I’m not counting it. I guess I was still exhausted from the recent round of food poisoning I dealt with. I took the time to make it down to the beach. Now I am on the Bay of Bengal side of the country instead of the Arabian Sea side. I didn’t get a chance to walk in the water, but it sure looks like it will be as warm or warmer than the other side. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll go for a swim.

Running is how I have felt the last week or so. I felt this photo captured how I’m feeling about India right now. Running towards the east and Thailand. I have been doing a lot of flying and moving around in my last few days in India. I’m getting ready for Thailand. India has had its ups and downs. I’m looking forward to moving on.

I was setting this shot up for just the boats when this guy ran past me and I took the shot. Sometimes a quick shutter finger can improve on what would likely have been a boring shot. I added a couple of textures to the image to give it a more hectic look. I have been shooting lots of textures all over India, and will soon be posting those textures as a downloadable link in my own online store.


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
