See You Soon

This is our entry in nancy merrill photography’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Endings.

In the fall of 2014, we visited Shimla in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, hoping to see the Himalayas without actually climbing them.  Instead, we were merely terrified passengers in the car that climbed to Shimla about 2200 meters above sea level.  (We had traveled from Amritsar to Shimla in one day, with the last three hours of the journey being  85 km of steep zig-zag road, thankfully arriving before pitch black night.)   The hotel for our three nights in Shimla was Wildflower Hall, the former residence of Lord Kitchener, commander-in-chief of the British Army in India (1902-1909).  On our last night there, we found this lovely sendoff on a small table in our room.

This photo was taken on October 28, 2014. Specs are:

Olympus TG-3, ISO 800, f/2.0, 1/25 sec, 4.5 mm
