The Colorful Old Delhi

More street photos from the Old Delhi, India. They were taken during that short window of blue hour after sunset at the Dariba Kalan street. The street was decorated with lots of lights to celebrate the Diwali day and I couldn’t get enough of rickshaw, so I kept shooting them whenever I saw one. And you don’t need to wait long for one to come.  :)

All photos taken with Leica M9 and Voigtlander Color Skopar Classic 35mm f/2.5. Enjoy the photos.MORE +

The Old Delhi

I am back from India today. Covered Delhi, Jaipur, Ajmer, Pushkar, Agra and Lucknow. I was traveling light and it was quite liberating. I fit my Leica M9, four small lenses and Olympus PEN E-P3 with 12mm lens, into a small Domke ‘school bag’ (F-803) and I could walk for hours without breaking my neck and back.

First up here are few photos I took in the late afternoon at the Old Delhi, near the Red Fort, on Diwali day. The road was packed with people, rickshaw, bicycles, motorcycles and cars and continuous sound of horns. One of the best locations I went to shoot at during this trip. I would love to go back to the Old Delhi again one day as I only managed to cover one lane as we didn’t have lots of time.

I will post more later, but for now, enjoy these four photos from the Old Delhi. All four were shot with Leica M9 and Voigtlander Color Skopar Classic 35mm f/2.5.MORE +

I Found Papa Smurf on the Street of Bangalore

Sorry for being quiet lately. Here is a quick post, taken with the M9 and Zeiss 50mm ZM f/2. I am off to India again tonight and this time I am traveling light. Only with the M9 and Olympus E-P3. Will cover Delhi, Rajashtan and Agra before heading to Lucknow to attend my friend’s wedding. MORE +

The Flash and Bionic Woman

Shot with Olympus PEN E-P3 and Minolta MD Rokkor 50mm f/1.7. At ISO 200, lens aperture was set to f/11 if I remember correctly. That was to allow the shutter speed to go down to 1/20 sec for panning purpose.MORE +
