Morning of Feb 26, the police and their bulldozer crossed the river and showed up on our doorsteps. One by one, huts, store front, fences and small houses were all flattened down. The police's excuse? They need to widen the road. Despite a temporary stay issued by the High Court in Bangalore, nobody could stop this menace. Paradise lost. Laughing Budha? Gone. Mango Tree? Gone. That little shop I bought my water? Gone. The internet cafe I uploaded my last facebook pictures? Gone. All those great places recommended by The Lonely Planet? Good luck finding them now.This photo was shot on film. Taken by ihave2pillows with a Lomo LC-A+ (available in our Online Shop) loaded with Fuji Astia film in Hampi, India.
