    Well, another day, another late wake-up. Since I had some web work to do, I had limited time on my side. So, I went for a quick photo shoot in some back lanes just East of the Sudder Street / Free School Street intersection. Words like picturesque and quaint don’t even begin to describe places like this. I was completely floored repeatedly as I encountered vivid hand-lettered signs, shops offering richly textured wares, and miniature displays that combined perfect artistry with functionality. I highly encourage artists, graphic designers, photographers, writers, musicians and all other creative types to visit this country. The raw beauty of India is so overwhelming and inspiring when you witness it in the flesh, it instantly makes you want to step up your game.
