Pre Pushkar Fair

I was in Pushkar, Rajashtan, about one week before the Pushkar Fair last month. Too bad. Pushkar Fair is the camel and livestock fair held annually in Pushkar, Rajashtan. Too bad I was one week earlier, but I was able to see a little bit of it, as there were already families and camels at the fair site. They have come from nearby villages to participate in the fair. I assume they came early in order to choose the best location to set up their camps. MORE +

Raining in Orchard Road

I was at Takashimaya, Orchard Road earlier this afternoon after meeting my cousin. It was raining heavily. I decided to shoot while my wife and daughter were sitting inside to rest their legs after few hours of walking earlier. I borrowed my wife umbrella and started walking to shoot some pictures. Umbrella in one hand and my Olympus PEN E-P3 with 12mm f/2 lens in another hand. The camera was a bit wet since the rain was too heavy for the umbrella to cover. I hope it didn’t do any damage to it.

This is one the shots I took and it’s probably the best I took this afternoon. Hope everyone had a great weekend. MORE +

One Morning in Jaipur

I shot these in front of our hotel in Jaipur, Rajashtan, in the early morning of our second day there. People started their day by having tea, setting up their roadside fruit stalls, sweeping the street, etc. under a cool October morning weather.

All photos taken with Leica M9 and Zeiss Planar 50mm ZM f/2. The first few were taken by shooting into the rising sun. Enjoy!MORE +
