    You are right, the WS photo shows the way most men dress these days in the only Indian city I have visited - Delhi (trousers of some sort rather than dhoti). A lot of women still dress in a traditional fashion though. Is it because women are more conservative or is it that they are expected to stick to the tradition by their conservative husbands and fathers? Somehow I suspect it's the former... Whatever the reasons, they do look gorgeous.
    Looking forward to seeing more of your new series.
    This was taken around the time when I took my first b&w shots... :-)
    Have a nice Sunday

    Hi Gert
    I know what you mean, the WS photo is more of a street shot but then I would also probably select this one as the main upload because it's more unusual without losing the "nothing special" quality as it is an perfect example of everyday life scene (or so I imagine).
    Great choice of dramatis personae at the time of shooting too. I like the juxtaposition between the two elegant ladies and the man on the left if the frame.
    In spite of the apparent simplicity of the scene (compared to the WS with many people and a lot happening), there are many delightful details to look at, from the architecture, through the fruit stall merchandise to the colourful reflections in the puddles.
    Best wishes

    An impressive creative outcome in a situation where most people would try to produce only record shots. Masterful use of contrast resulted in this near-minimalist image. Congratulations, also, on the choice of medium.
    This would look great on a gallery wall.

    Hi Iain
    What a fantastic, otherworldly landscape! Good crop (neve mind the foot) that not only kept the group of tourists out but also made it look almost abstract, it could be anything from a modern sculpture to a landfill site. I was pleased to read in your note it's a natural phenomenon.
    The colours, the soldiers pose and the expression on his face all beautifully captured.
    Definitely one for my travel wish list theme.
    Best wishes

    This is exactly what I witnessed during my stay at Inle, about 6 months before yours. I bet these are the same "actor-fishermen" I took photos of. They even had some dead fish to use a props to pose with should the tourists wish so. I got invited into one of their boats and spent quite a productive half an hour photographing acrobatic skills that had nothing to do with fishing...
    Great shot with lovely colours in the background and the tourists with cameras skillfully included in the foreground.

    Hi Peter
    Great viewpoint to show this profusion of tall buildings and brilliant crop to make it look so impressive and at the same time almost abstract. Perfect weather for such a shot, the light and colours are wonderful and the buildings seem to be disappearing in to the mist.
