Hi guys, I just spend two weeks over in India for my brothers wedding. Delhi and Jammu cities. Woah what an experience! Really good fun, having never been past Australia before quite a culture shock

I also scored a Pentax-M 50mm F1.4 for a whopping 20 USD at a small camera shop in old delhi fairly well used but optically sound.

Anyhow some images, hope you enjoy:

A worker at Humayun Tomb

Humayun Tomb Complex

Tomb inside

Lodi Gardens

Another Lodi Gardens shot

Gas tank transport

Hawk at dusk above my hotel

Jama Masjid Mosque taken from hotel rooftop

Dusk over Chadni Chowk district

Parrot in the grounds of Humayun Tomb

Old building we passed in an auto/rickshaw

Sunset taken on the way back from Lake Mansar, Jammu.

I've got wedding shots and portraits but I should probably get permission before posting anything.

Great series FruitLoops, I like them all, though #2, 3 and 12 are my top picks.

Very interesting. You have captured some of the many facets of India, including its many different worlds. A mosque against modern skyscrapers, ramshackle apartments and buildings at sunrise, sublime archtecture and many other facets. Nice work.

Haha you took the words straight out of my head! I actually said that to my friend while on the rooftop looking out over those ramshackle buildings. Oh how different it is to my small city back in NZ.

Glad you guys liked it!
