Hello from Bangalore! Arrived safely and on time earlier this afternoon. Hotel was nice but far from the city even though it’s close to where I will be working from on Thursday and Friday. The wet markets I went to in 2006 are all far from here, but I will spend time shooting there this coming weekend.
I had about two hours shooting around the hotel after checking in and before dinner. All shot with Leica M9 and Zeiss Planar 50mm ZM f/2.
The man below was selling chat masala. He was constantly busy serving people who just left their office and stopped to buy dinner from him.
The two guys below were waiting for a car to ride home. There was a strong backlight and hence their faces were almost in silhouette.
You need to have the right skill to get on to the bus while it’s moving.
The three modes of transportation: the bicycles, the motorcycles and the car.
And finally, my dinner, mutton biryani and mango lassi, back at the hotel.
