Howdy all welcome to the next installment in my ‘Faces of’ series. This time I shift a country to the east and look at people I’ve met in India. These photographs take in three trips to India going as far back as 1999. Despite all the hassles and scams, the real people of India are warm, inviting and will do anything to look after the visitor to their amazing country.
This photo was taken in Jallandhar, 1999. I was taken in by Manu (second from the right) and his family and shown a side to Jallandhar that many visitors don’t get to see meeting all his family and friends.
Mumbai, 2001. After visiting Ghandi’s House I stopped for a drink at a little restaurant and met a group of students who asked me and the other Aussie I’d met earlier that day and thousand questions. Loads of laughs too!Two happy kids in Mumbai, 2001.
A couple of ladies on the train to Varanasi, 2004.
Watch out for that food dye! Indian festivals are a lot of fun. These guys may have had too much fun. Taken from the road to Darjeeling, 2004.
Thanks for reading folks – May the Journey Never End!
