Housekeeping Notes

with 14 comments

Over the last two months, I haven’t been able to post any new articles onto Iconic Photos. I have been travelling across India during that time — an initial trip of 3 weeks which ballooned and lengthened into a three-month journey, for which I hadn’t prepared the blog for.

Alas, it was an engaging trip — I shook hands with a god incarnate, trekked up a Himalayan pass, and nearly got recruited to (what I was pretty sure) a cult. All this fun and precarious living came with its dangers though — I was robbed at knife point, me losing my camera, laptop, and worse horror of it all, my harddisk drive.

What does that mean? That means I don’t really have an huge archive of photographs and pre-written posts to fall back on anymore, apart from some scraps and pieces are stored via cloud here and there. The blog’s output will suffer, but I ask you all to bear with me for a few months. As Virgil would say, haec olim meminisse ituvabit.

  1. Interesting unexpected extended trip to india. Glad you made it back. When you were robbed at knife point, did you know that the person just wanted your things and not your life?

    Sorry about your photos,
    It will be better, matter of perspective.

  3. If you could do it again, is there anything you’d do differently that would have preserved your photos or your gear?

  4. Sorry to hear about your bad luck but I guess that you survived the ordeal and can be “somewhat” happy that the best camera you have is the one connecting your eyes to your memories!
