From the town of Sawai Madhopur, India

Discussion in 'Photojournalism, Candids and Street Photography' started by johnaalex, Feb 12, 2019.

  1. Sawai Madhopur is in the Indian state of Rajasthan and is best known as the main place to stay for people visiting the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve. As the reserve is the main objective of people visiting the area, tourists are rarely seen around the actual town, especially in the old market area. Maybe it is for this reason that the locals are so friendly, most are happy to be photographed - indeed several asked for their pictures to be taken! There was absolutely no hassle whatsoever!

    This is just a sample of the shots from my trip, more can be seen HERE, but please note I have still more shots to add to the album.

    All comments welcome, thank you.

    Wonderful set! We spent 3 weeks in Rajasthan, but didn't make it to this town. By chance did you visit Rathambore? I've considered it.....it's somewhere on the bucket list! LOL!
     
  10. Thanks Jim, and the people were very happy to pose - in some cases they would not take "no" for an answer! :) 

    Thanks Jeff.

    Karen, I did indeed visit Ranthambore, that was the main purpose of the trip. However during 8 game drives over four days I did not see any tigers :( . I did get a good sighting of a Jungle Cat which was a nice bonus. I'll be posting some wildlife shots soon!
     
  11. A spectacular series. Any problems with photographing these people?
     
  12. Must be your charming personality!
     
  13. No problems whatsoever, lots of people were keen to have their picture taken. There was no hassle whatsoever!

    Erm. Er. OK - let's go with that! ;)
