A DIFFERENT VIEW - Mini-Series Part 2 - RAJASTHAN

Whether or not you have visited this fascinating sub-continent, India surely conjures many iconic images. 

Who hasn't seen photos of the Taj Mahal? I almost skipped a visit to Agra on the grounds that I didn't need to see a building I was already well acquainted with. Fortunately, I did go and for the first time in my life I was reduced to tears by a building. 

The moral of this story is: if you have an opportunity to visit a world renowned place, just do it!

Anyway, I digress...

I could show you photos of the Taj Mahal and a variety of other famous places and buildings in India, but, in the spirit of this mini-series, I'm going to show you a different view instead.


Sam sand dunes, Thar Desert


I prefer to capture people in my photos, if possible.


Pushkar






Failing that, I'll settle for animals.
















Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary



Or a gorgeous sunset.


















But people going about their daily lives are always a source of fascination for me.















Although sacred cows are ubiquitous in towns and cities and the locals barely notice them, it's a thrill for the visitor who bumps into one in a narrow street.


Jaisalmer


But people photos are my favourite and if I can only capture a silhouette, then so be it.

Please leave a comment if you've enjoyed my snapshot of Rajasthan. 

I'll reply when I return from my travels in March.

  2. Lovely pictures.

    I agree, if we can it's best to see places for real. A photo shows a lot, but not everything.

  3. You do take some lovely photos, and although sunsets are wonderful, people's faces are better.
