I am in London now, looking back over my life in India. What did I enjoy most? The sunshine and the mangoes. What did Distant Drumlin’s readers enjoy most? Well, according to the statistics, you are fascinated by my post about red custard apples. Really? Why?
I want to try something new – a poll to see which photo of India is the most popular. It’s easy to take part; just look at the ten photos below, choose your favourite, then click on the poll at the end of the post.
I am including links to the original posts, but you don’t need to go back to them to vote – the photos are right here.
[UPDATE: Keep Voting! It’s New Year’s Day – 1 January 2014, and three photos are tied for first place: the tumbling flowers, the smiling girl, and the dog on the bus. We need someone to vote for a winner!]
Let’s start with those mangoes.
Do you like the sunshine on these baskets?
Or do you prefer this photo, from the day in August 2013 that I finally admitted that Palm squirrels are cute?
I did get a little obsessed with bananas, so I am hoping at least some readers liked this photo of the gardener harvesting our bananas in January 2013.
Or do you prefer the photos taken on my trips out of the city, like this farmer ploughing with oxen?
Or did you enjoy the moment that I captured in March when I saw a man splashing water over a cow?
I took several photos of bullock carts– is this your favourite?
Maybe you prefer portraits of people, like this one?
Or do you prefer the Dussehra flowers tumbling out of the sack?
Or was this dog really the star of the blog?
I would love to have your comments as well. Let me know why you like a photo….or just tell me that the custard apple genuinely is the most interesting thing about the blog.
