Taking you there

What's a few months between posts? :)

I wanted to share a couple of visual things which just "take me there"...I tend not to share a lot of this stuff, but I was surprised by how powerful both of these vignettes are.

The first is a slideshow called "A Day In Varanasi" with photos that are uncommonly good, don't linger on the "usual" photos you see and really make you feel like you've spent a day on the river banks experiencing all the little things. It comes via The Travel Photographer who manages to share the work of a tremendous number of great photographers. Have a look:

The second is sort of a highlight reel of a day spent jumping off cliffs! VERY different than the Varanasi scenes, but something which nevertheless, puts you at the feet of these daredevils. My first reaction was that I'd love to see this on a huge IMAX screen and maybe even in that Hang gliding ride at Disney's California Adventure. Have fun and don't get too scared!
