Great! Particulary the first two. The 3rd seems to have some yellow/green gradient .. is it due to scanning? Anyways, refreshingly different photos from India, looking forward to see more of that! Btw, how did you end up here .. family?
Thanks. It might be the scanning, it really is hit or miss sometimes with this Epson. These were from earlier this year when I went on a six week trip across Rajasthan and Gujarat. I am Indian and have family spread across the globe.
Have you ever visited India?
I see, so is your familiy from both states? I’ve been to India only once, for 3 months in 2005. Liked it a lot, but was only backpacking, so rather saw the tourist side .. started with photography there more or less with kitschy photographs of beggars and kids 😀 .. exciting place to photograph, it’s just very different from here .. even more interesting to see your photographs of places that are not so exploited (photographically) by tourists.
Neither. My family is Sindhi, from the Sindh province which is now part of Pakistan. After the partition, my great grandfather had left his province with nothing but his family and the clothes on their backs. It’s also the reason why Sindhis are everywhere, because they don’t have place to truly call home.
I was the biggest tourist in India, I got ripped off a couple times by rickshaw drivers and pashmina vendors. I was simply overwhelmed by the sheer madness of things in India I guess.
I do plan to go back soon, and hopefully this time take the road less traveled as even the photos up here were taken while exploring a near by village on a very touristy camel ride.
