Sunrise @ Varanasi (India)

I intended to shoot the sunrise and was pleasantly surprised to see the silhouette of a horseman.

Jaipur (India)

Hawa Mahal (Palace Of The Winds) used to house the royal ladies, whom did not appear in public or in front of strangers. There are small windows on the building’s facade which are angled to over look the main market and central boulevard. Each window allowed the women to observe the daily life of the city whilst staying unseen from the street and commoner level. The outside world as small as the frame.

Morning boat ride on Ganges River

Varanasi (India) is one of the oldest living cities in the world. Boating down the Ganges River during sunrise is a main attraction. The whole place is colorful and chaotic. It is a melting pot where both life and death come together … the sights, sounds and smells are just not for the fainthearted.
