A day spent going thru Life Magzine's 70 Years of Extraordinary Photography.
This particular photograph in the book was deeply moving. Taken by Yosuke Yamahata - one day after an atomic bomb blasted Nagasaki, a mother and son, rice balls in hand, wander through the devastation.
And my photograph of the book and a warm cup of tea was taken exactly(approx) a year ago when I fell sick with a violent flu and throat infection. When you are "Out Sick" and not at work - it's quite surprising how ideas crop up. Almost like being at your local tea shop and discussing with friends.
Down again with a violent flu and sinusitis infection - and my lovely wife preparing a hot Pepper Rasam/Pepper Soup (Kurumullake Rasam) for dinner, I could'nt help but shoot the ingredients that goes into this "heavenly soup" . I find the mortar and pestle quite an interesting subject to shoot with all the spices hugging to it.
