The return trip from Mysore to Bangalore took five and a half hours. That’s to go 90 miles. But the roads are not great, and we had a lot of traffic. In the morning, it took me three and a half hours to get to Mysore, but that was leaving really early.
The long car trip home was still entertaining. I was constantly on the lookout for interesting photographic subjects. That’s the benefit of a photographer in a strange new land. There are always things to observe and document. I also had three cameras with me, so I had numerous equipment options that added to the fun. I made this with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II and the 14-150mm travel zoom. It’s the same gear and technique I used to capture this popular photo from Mysore.
I’m not very familiar with Hinduism. However, I do recognize Hanuman, the distinctive monkey god. I like this big one, towering over the road, and watching the traffic. The dark vignettes on the edges of the photo are from the car windshield, which adds character to the image and begs for the backstory behind the photo.
