Hotel Royal International - Jaipur Rajasthan - India

I think the old Opel has been parked in from of the Hotel Royal International or Jaipur for little while now. I’m not to sure how the two folks on the left are related to the car if at all. Anyway I spotted the old wreck on my way to lunch and could not resist walking back and take a shot. When I was complimenting them, one of the guys spotted I was was french and started speaking the lingo.
Amazing !

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 to miss a picture

Waiting for the year of the dragon V

I was carrying my Leica and Hasselblad around Waterloo street that Sunday morning trying to finish my two rolls when I shot this scene.
I found it very funny the woman on the right showing her fist and apparently cursing the stall kippers and the smiles of that one, may I add that this did not look like a real argument but rather a game between people who knew each others.
Alas, all of this is a bit lost in the resulting picture, the hands of the person in the right are not easy to see and the stall kippers are too much in the dark. Well if you look at it carefully though…
