Faces Of Jodhpur

One of my earliest posts on this blog dealt with my fascination for the ‘people of my places‘:

“I find people amusing, fascinating, inspiring. When I travel I enjoy sitting in a cafe, looking out onto a busy street and observing random strangers going about their daily lives. It gives me a feel for their culture. A feel for who they are and the stories behind their faces. Not to mention those impromptu scenes, that wayward glance, that enigmatic smile……just begging to be captured and transformed into enduring memories.

Nothing’s changed! As you can see from this sequel to my ‘Colours Of Jodhpur

Adore that nose-ring! And the red ‘Odhni’.

Until next time…….happy travels, no matter where life takes you.
