  4. I guess I should learn how to post pictures....<br><br>

  5. and it shows . .
     
  6. I mean the bit about the expanding market, Carsten!
     
  7. Without a fair representation of stray dogs and cows, you can't have a piccie thread on India...

  8. >>Without a fair representation of stray dogs and cows, you can't have a piccie thread on India...

    Well, you'll need some temple, too...

  9. How 'bout an Indian car...err...lorry wash?
    [​IMG]
     
  10. and while we're talking about cars....don't forget the Ambassador:

    [​IMG]

    Carsten
     
  11. Yup...the ever present Ambassador...and an ancient fort...and even more cows...

  12. Hey Nels,

    the EXIF tells me that this is not exactly a Leica photo.

    Neither are nine, but don't tell anyone.....

    Carsten
     
  13. I have SO been avoiding cows, temples, ambassadors and dogs, ok you win.

  14. Alright, I'll balance things out somewhat...and post some real Leica piccies...such as the ones that have an EXIF data with them...

  15. and the temple complex of Meenakshi (the fish-eyed goddess) in Madurai. More temples, dogs, cows and such next week (STOP yawning).

  16. Holy cow. Cows give off methane gas that causes global warming. Someone needs to curb the cow population so I can drive my car.
     
  17. No Harvey, solar activity causes global warming and global warming causes high levels of CO2, I saw it on TV so it must be true.
    BTW don't forget the goats, there are probably more goats a-roamin than cows.
     
  18. "and the temple complex of Meenakshi (the fish-eyed goddess) in Madurai."

    John, That does not translate to "fish-eyed" but rather "fish-shaped eyes".
     
  19. BTW, Carsten, next time go south. This one Temple (complex) that John shows is a several times the size of Koeln cathedral. And this isn't the biggest temple there is!

    All the ones in the north were demolished/ransacked/looted by the Arabs and Persians many many centuries ago.
     
  20. It may have lost something in the translation, either way I get the distinct impression she (pron. meenashee?) was a little weird looking.
     
  21. We drove around in this Indian Ferrari before it broke down and had to be pushed off the road...
    [​IMG]
     
  22. Nels - that might be just like the real thing!
     
  23. The ride was a little bumpy, hot, and dusty but quite scenic...
    [​IMG]
     
  24. John, No gods existed. Lots of myths and symbolism cast in stone, gold and such. You should have gone inside the temple to take a look (wouldn't have made any sense, those figures- never did to me).
     
  25. I set the ISO at 400, aperture at f/5.6, and fired away while driving...

  26. I believe it is also an unwritten rule, when performing a cliched portrayal of India, that you have to have a holiday brochure type shot of a canoe in the Kerala backwaters - here's one I prepared earlier.

  27. But...let's get back to stray cows... [​IMG]
     
  28. Nels, I think 4.45 is truly GOOD.<p>Vivek, to the outsider (me) Hinduism does seem a little bonkers - but fascinating none the less.
     
  29. Alright, my last one in the thread...it's been fun...I still have a pile of stuff to look at and process...some day...
    [​IMG]
     
  30. Well, as someone who grew up there, it wasn't odd. Nevertheless, not easy to understand.

    However, I was truly shocked to see preserved human remains inside places of worship in Europe.
     
  31. We have human remains in palaces too . . . .
     
  32. Fabulous stuff posted here.
     
  33. Thanks (from all of us) Stephen, fabulous people - in India.
     
  34. Really Good Thread Guys!
     
  35. Yeah, thanks folks- John, Nels and Carsten.

    >

    Yeah, but "fish-eyed" is funnier.
     
  37. some good stuff here!
     
  38. Nels, please give/sell me a big print of your 16:45 photo, magnificent!
     
  39. Stephen - I am about to leave for the airport...going out of town on business...back tomorrow night...pl. send me e-mail if you're serious.

    Thanks to all who participated and commented.
