After 6 months in India these pants had seen a lot. Lost of color and full of stains after their continuous encounters with many a bus, train, boat, scooter, bike, rickshaw, mountain, rock, temple, street, lake, beach and monastery to make a girl smile. I think they liked it most when I took them to Rajasthan to shoot a series called, “Handstands in Rajasthan” They gave their every last bit of fabric to stick with me till the end. Now they sit in my closet in California. Happily retired. Hope you enjoy the couple shots from this series I posted here.

Now, where can I find a pair of red pants for the next journey?!

    I am in awe of your skills. WHY CAN’T I TAKE PICTURES THIS GOOD AAAAAAAH no but seriously, your pictures are amazing works of art. They capture daily life beautifully and make me look at the world in a new light. My parents are both Indian – and my dad is from Rajasthan, so the recent pictures on your blog about India, especially the ones in Udaipur, where my grandparents live, are extra-special. Looking forward to seeing more of your pictures!!
