  1. The light through these windows is absolutely stunning. The perspective causes one to feel as though they were in the room. Quite remarkable!

    • The comparisons and contrasts with the temples and palaces of southern India is something I find fascinating.

  4. Gorgeous photos. And so different from the ones from India. Is it the light?

    • Yes, the light in England is very different – more diffuse yet subtle…
      Incidentally, I have used the opportunity of being here to buy several books and DVDs including “Of Gods and Men”. I can explore and ponder upon them, back in India.
