03.06.14 - For Harsh

It was with huge shock and sadness that I heard of the passing of Harsh Javeri yesterday. He was one of my oldest "friends" on the Dailies, and although we never met it was as though we had known each other for a long time. He was a lovely man, always supportive towards other photographers and never a bad word for anyone. I think we all enjoyed seeing the world through Harsh's eyes. His images from Mumbai and beyond were always fantastic, we will miss him. My thoughts go out to his family at this difficult time.

This Sloe Shield Bug was one of the first things that I photographed after I heard the news about Harsh. I thought it was beautiful and I have never seen one before, looking like a medieval knight in armour.
