     This photo really has nothing to do with my spiritual or photographic journey, but I think it's a nice photo and it's what's at hand. Day 1, night time, my computer got hit with a power surge so my brick exploded. I'm on energy conservation. Since it's a 10 year old macbook, there isn't another power brick to be found.

     Today, I remember mostly yoga related things: We did a balancing class, had a lecture on the differences betweein Budhism and HInduism, I fell out of a headstand onto a hard floor, and we learned about micro and macro orbits.

     Anyway,the big adventure today was Durbar Square. This is another site that manages to show a contrast between the destruction of the Earthquake and yet someone manages to look completely untouched by not only the earthquake but also the ravages of time. I'm told this is a quinessential place to do some yoga photos. I don't have them yet, so I can't post me doing either Standing Bow, or thesame headstand that I fell out of earlier that morning. I thought it was interesting to be able to be in front of the camera for a while, instead of behind it orchestrating the shot. I could get used to this.
