Indo-Mexican collaboration.

Always feels good to be reminded of my home, Goa, in the unlikeliest of places. Seen this evening in downtown Santa Barbara, California. And yes, that’s a bear.

Speaking of Indo-Mexican, a photo I took some years ago in Mountain View, of a Mexican mami whipping out a dosa. (Note: In India, mami refers to aunt.)

Among the living giants.

A few frames from a quick excursion through the magnificent Sequoia National Park in California.

We were here with my nephew and nieces from India, to introduce the kids to the wonders of this part of the Sierra Nevada. I did not carry my camera bag, but the iPhone X is a capable instrument.

The most popular attraction in the park is General Sherman, the largest (by volume) living tree on the planet. The final image is a vertical pano with the iPhone X.
