So....I set out last week to see the world and my first stop was Delhi, LA.
I'm starting this project with no preconceived notion of what it is I want to photograph - my only requirement is to make it to my intended destinations. I thought it best to let the project sort of unfold as I went along. I love photographing small town landscapes, so it is entirely possible that that would become my main focus. I pictured many of my photographs looking like this:
Of course I will have plenty of those photographs from my travels, in fact I already do.
But I almost bypassed Delhi, for no other reason than it was a wee bit out of the way. I was on a mission to get up to Transylvania, and true to form, had left my house much later than planned. But I was enjoying the ride so I decided to go ahead and visit that great land, and I am soooo glad I did, because Delhi is soooo Button Cute.
I spent most of my time gazing at and photographing two buildings - First Baptist Church and the Cave Theatre, both on Broadway...interesting...
The Cave Theatre
I got quite a sense of grandeur and welcome as I photographed the First Baptist Church, on Broadway, in Delhi. Where am I again?
So, there you have it, Delhi, LA - this is what I was drawn to. Artistic and Spiritual Centers. Go Figure. There is so much more to see and photograph, but Transylvania was a callin'.
The last shot I took of the church includes a message from, yes, their electronic sign:
"This is the day that....."
And so begins the Inspirational Portion of my World Tour. It was to become a theme among the other places I visited, to be blogged about at a later date. This is the day that .....what? I begin a fake World Tour for no real reason? Or is this the day that I begin to just ...see what happens. Nice philosophy, if I can hang with that.
But never fear, I still have my eye out for places like this gem:
Hope you enjoy the photos!
