This is my third post of this village, only this time we don't have a woman, but three. It was around noon and it was really hot, but they all came outside to watch us.
This is a typical desert house of Rajasthan - made of mud, with thatched roofs, partially painted with chalk powder.I really liked them! This one, situated between Mandawa and Bikaner, is just one of several we have visited in the region. It's a great experience to walk around - so many things to see and people to meet.

angolo di villaggio ben ripreso con le donne dalle vesti colorate che sembrano incuriosite dal tuo scatto.
Ben ripresa la scena con colori naturali,

Hi Ana, thsnks for the leter. I sam sure I will like Burma, I just love to go to Asia. It is my sixth trip. Interesting houses, I suupose I was somewhere there, going to Shekhavati region. The women seem interested in photographer.
There is free wifi at the Moscow airport, so I use it waiting for the plane.

A superb daily life scene from India with vibrant color, good sharpness & punchy contrast (the way I usually like it). Wonderful warm cold color contrasts between the red sari & blue sky. Tfs! Parabens!

A very interesting vertical composition with this scene of rural life. The ladies are very well off-centred in the composition. Excellent and well coloured photo reportage.

Wauw Ana,this brings back memories to me to the 1980s when I made endless travels into Rajasthan and its deserts.
I see not so much has changed ;]

Most interesting! From the thumbnail I thought it to be Africa, the mud hut are very similar. I didn't know that such villages existed in India!
The composition is both interesting and fine showing two huts with a good depth and the women with their colourful dresses which are a great subject and a fine eye-catcher.
A good work,

Una maravillosa imagen y sorprendente tambien, antes de leer nada yo la situaba en Africa, curiosas esas construcciones que no he visto en ninguno de mis dos viajes a India. El colorido de los trajes de las mujeres tambien es sorprendente y diferente.
Una gran composicion, plena de luz y color. Me gusta.
Ya te he visto en ese paseo con mi amigo Josep, creo que lo disfrutasteis.
Un cordial saludo.

I love your people shots. They are so natural and beautifully composed. You can tell the people feel comfortable around you. Excellent colours and composition, including the traditional houses and costume like that. Parabens.

A wonderful picture I like the huts

Hi Ana: Were they as friendly as the Gujaratis? I'd be interested in your experience. Best, c

Hello Ana, I can see by these type photos that your trip to India was an adventure for you. Lovely shot & very interesting with the three women adding interest & colour. Very nice capture & well realized, beautiful colour & excellent details. Compliments
serp2000 (33385) 2011-12-01 23:13
Great! My compliments, Ana,
I have never been so far inside this country. Just a photo from GEO or National Geographic. Outstanding presentation of the traditional daily life real India.

A colourful and typical Rajasthani village and some ladies quite curious that cam to see you!
The quality of light, colours and sharpnes is excellent and the scene is appealing!
tatadalou (4061) 2011-12-04 9:44
The architecture of this village makes me think about the huts that could be found in Africa. I did not know that villages of India could propose a similar landscape, it's all the magic of TE to make us discover lesser-known aspects. These three women, with their colorful clothes, stand out in this photo earthy tones.
Thank you for sharing,

a foto está muito boa, as mulheres e as cabanas até parecem estar posando para vc. muito bom enquadramento e nitidez apesar da luz forte.
fritzi007 (63) 2011-12-30 7:08
imagino que esta foto é muito perto da vida Africano, acima de tudo, os telhados dos barracos.
Sua foto vale a pena, parabéns!
wolf38 (29126) 2012-01-12 8:36
Hello Ana. A village in Rajasthan. The colorful photo pleases me very well. It shows an aspect in the lives of people. Rajasthan is unfortunately still on my white list. But maybe it works in the next year with a trip to this region. Rgds, Wolfgang.

I love this one and I love Indian women:) Seeing them in these colorful clothes and bracelets I can't stop wondering at their ability to make the most of their difficult living. Thanks for sharing and cheers:)
