Hi Tammy,

Thank you! It was my first trip to India and quite an experience. I have never encountered a country where so any people are openly receptive to the camera - it really is a photographer's dream location.

Truly beautiful! I was there in 2007, December. I found everyone was willing to pose, but for a fee. I probably didn't look too professional with my little winding Ricoh. I plan to go back, one of these old days. Maybe after I learn how to use this camera! The country is rich with life. #8444462

Hi Dorathy,

Thank you for your kind words! s a street musician I did return his co-operation by spending a little time listening to him play and of course showed my appreciation by leaving him with a few rupees!

Kind regards,
