Hello world! A few more street scenes from Jodhpur, Rajahstan, India.
It’s a fairly steep climb up to the ancient hilltop fort.
No space is too small for a quick round of cricket. Heck, this narrow alley even comes with bleachers…
I’ve had better days.
Boiling milk into powder – and poking good-natured fun at one another while at it.
Cheer up, buddy – you’ll never get a customer, with such a grumpy face…
…see? This guy smiled and picked up a ride right away…
And, finally, what would an India post on this blog be without a “One photo, Sir?!”…
Hope you enjoyed this latest instalment. More to come soon.
Hi Alessandro! I love this series. The last, by far, is my favorite! I cannot wait to see the rest. Hugs to you, amy
Hello, Amy! That last shot typically occurs when some kid spots the traveler-with-camera and calls all his buddies over shouting and clamoring for “one photo, sir!?!”
Thanks and huge hugs to you.
I love your series on India ♥ thank you for these beautiful black and white.
Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging words – music to my ears…
Wonderful set…as always!
Thanks, Know-All. I never tire of words of appreciation – they provide strong incentive to keep it up…
Who taught that boy to play cricket? His hands are wrong and he has played across the line. He is however on the front foot and his eye is on the ball. Maybe he will be one of the great unorthodox players. The milk powder guys are brilliant. Love the series, Alessandro.
I’m no expert on the matter so i fully trust you on the cricket – his style may not have been quite up to scratch. But his aim was way up there: he nearly gave me a black eye when he whacked one good…
You are so good with composition, and surprises. Very good Alessandro!
Thank you Bente. Wishing you a happy ending and a great new beginning…
Another insightful piece of day-to-day India… I particularly like the balance in composition on #1 (the climb to the fort).
Keep them coming, Alessandro!
Thank you Antonio. Yes, day-to-day life is what really pulls me into places. So glad you enjoy them. All the best for a shiny and bright 2015!
Please promise never to give up on the book idea …. stunning
Thanks, Ann. Lately, i may have to start thinking about a book on India Today…
All the best for the almost-here new year! And, yes: promised.
Best to you in 2015!
Great photos – again! The last one is amazing – super shot 🙂
I wish you a Happy Christmas – from the cold North!
Thanks Truels! It really seems that Indian kids find camera-toting travelers impossible to resist.
Wish you a fantastic 2015! 🙂
A wonderful portrait of Jodhpur. So many lovely images – a well done street photography project.
Such a wonderful comment from so qualified voice works wonders for my ego. I thank you dearly and wish you a bright and creative 2015, my friend.
I wish you all the best in the new year, too.
Is it to late to rescue that little clown toy? Always nice to see your monochrome India. Buon anno, Alessandro!
Now you make me feel guilty – i just took a picture of him and never once considered saving him… 🙂
All the very best for you in 2015 and always, Paula. And congratulations: you are my top commenter!
Awww, happy to.hear I’m holding the 1st place on your blog :). Auguri amico xx
So much fun exploring India through your wonderful views Alessandro and thoroughly enjoying the black and white!
Thanks, Patti! These are actually getting to be a little old-ish, but i haven’t gotten around to processing them all properly, yet…
