Rajasthan pictures slideshow

Sorry for the redundant post I was playing with slideshows… anyway, these are my best pictures of the holidays in Rajasthan in March 2012.

Yes I know IĀ promisedĀ I’ll do a book available on blurb but that will take a little more time.

On blurb and the burden of mass shooting – Women Weaving – Rajasthan – India

Women Weaving

Argh I’m still crawling trough the 2000 pics of Rajasthan, I managed to reject nearly 1000 so far, I think getting down to 200 pics would be pretty nice, a reasonable set to post on flickr and to print a s book on blurb. I’ll share a tip; when I do a travel book on blurb it is mainly for myself, but when i order mine I also order a couple to give away to the parents and inlaws, a way of sharing with them…

How I ruined the rest of the film

No Parking (Sadri close to Raknapur, in Rajastan India)

I was very happy to walk around the small town of Sidri close to Raknapur in Rajastan. When the color roll came to an end I switched the back of the hassie for the black and white on,e to the wonder of two nice kids who were following me. I even managed not to drop one of the backs on the ground as I did in Borobudur not so long ago.

Evening comes, I take the color back and rewind the film, take it out put a new one in, switch the backs, take the black and white back and …. rewind !!! Donkey !!! There was only two shots in the film ! Worse were the ten worrying seconds where I had the feeling something was going wrong without being able to tell what. Yes there are pretty worse things than rewinding an unfinished film.

Incredible India

Jodpur

Back from 12 days in “Incredible India”, in Delhi, Agra and Rajasthan. I carried over my DSLR but also the Hasselblad, nearly 10KG of stuff all in all including the tripod, but luckily we were travelling in hum , well,good conditions . Films have turned up from the lab yesterday and I started scanning them.

This old guy sits in the fort of Jodpur to be shot by tourist so don’t over estimate the picture.
