This is the first of many images from the archives I will be posting here in the days to follow. Finally got around to carry out a massive backup project, and I would like to share my favorite candid photos.
I took this one in the winter of 2008. John and I still lived in London at the time and since we got married earlier that year, the California trip served us as a Honeymoon as well as a visit to John's parents. We has a swell time - rode horses, (sort of) swam with dolphins, had a Chinese Tea Ceremony, and drove all the way down to LA to see the sights.
The Golden Gate is something to behold, and seeing it for the first time was quite a memorable experience. So it was for these Tibetan monks, I believe.
Taken with my old point and shoot Kodak.
