But what did it feel like? India, part two.

Back now for a second look at India, and what it felt like. Part of what it felt like was the awe over the magnificent structures that represent India, and its magical history, but if you look around, behind, and to the sides, you can see the individual stories, the people, and the circumstances behind them. Photos number 1, 3 and 5 represent the magnificence of the structures of antiquity - and, in particular Humayan's tomb. Photos number 2, 4 and 6 show some of the people within, without and to the sides, who each have a story to tell, or so it seemed to me. Photos 7, 8 and 9 are from the magnificent Q'tub Minar complex. Photo number 8 is of a facade with the flowing script which tells of pages from the Q'ran. Photo number 7 is actually one of my own favorites, and it is so telling that no words are needed.  Photo number 9 tells its own story, also with no real words necessary. The expressions, the intensity and the contrasts tell it all.


  1. I love # 7! What a wonderful picture. Well, all of them are wonderful, as usual. :)

  2. Picturesque and exotic, that's what it feels like to me, and you conveyed the mood perfectly. My favourite one is #1, it takes you to the fairy realm from Arabian Nights -- it feels like a genie or a princess are about to make their appearance!

  3. Well, thank you all for your thoughts. But I'm preparing a blockbuster final look at India!
