There is a relatively small town called Murudeshwara (India) on the coast of the Arabian Sea. The town may be small but it is the location of the second-tallest Shiva statue in the world. The statue and the Murudeshwara Temple are located on a hill directly next to the coast giving you a gorgeous view of the Indian coastline.
During my rickshaw trip through India in 2010 I came across a relatively small town called Murudeshwara in the Karnataka region in India. I haven’t heard about it before but upon entering the town, we quickly saw this huge statue of the Hindu god Shiva. I later discovered it was the second-tallest Shiva statue in the world.
The statue and temple are very prominent in the town and located on a hill on the coast of the Arabian Sea. Needless to say, this gives you a gorgeous view over the Indian coastline from the temple.
However, what interested me the most was the small fish market located directly next to the temple. It was early in the morning and the fishermen where just starting to bring the fish in. They were very open to us foreigners coming over to have a look and it’s one of my great Indian experiences.
If you want to spend a weekend near the sea but do not want to restrict yourself to the usual routine consisting of the hotel and the beach, I recommend taking a trip to Cesena and Cesenatico, two towns located on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. I did mine by combining sunbathing and cultural excursions.This was documented with my trusty Lomo LC-A. Have a look!
The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
Even great photographers need help in making their prints as brilliant as their artistic vision. In this video, Robin Bell talks about developing and printing the pictures of David Bailey and Terence Donovan the old-fashioned way.
