There are a fair number of military photos of Afghanistan and Iraq shot through the window of a Humvee (example 1 and 2). So, many that I couldn’t find the original that inspired me for this post. I know that a lot of these photos are taken from inside because it’s safer, but I found the analogy striking: a window into a different life and a different world…

Here in India I often forget to take photos of the insanity and chaos because I’m a part of it every day. But when inside a vehicle it really stands out.

These photos are taken through the front window of a bus — on our way to Mascal.
