Surreal Ghaziabad Rickshaw

I don't usually shoot a lot of video, but I've been recently getting in the habit of recording short clips from my day-to-day life. This clip was taken during my commute home one day through the Sahibabad Industrial Area in Ghaziabad. My coworker and I got into a rickshaw with a flashing green LED and huge stereo blasting music in the background. Add in a driver hidden behind a hood and it made for a surreal commute.

Hyderabad

I spent Diwali in Hyderabad with some friends and got the chance to shoot around the beautiful old city. Of course Hyderabad's yellow auto rickshaws, my favorite photo subject, attracted most of my attention.

Dharamshala

A few months ago some friends and I visited Dharamshala, a gorgeous town in the Himalayas and home of the Dalai Lama and the exiled Tibetan community. The clean air and mountain scenery was a welcome escape from Delhi. Of course, the drive from Delhi was delayed buy a few hours by a massive traffic jam (pictured below) caused by an ultra slow toll collector, but Dharamshala was well worth the wait.
