Jaipur is often called the pink city in reference to its distinctly coloured buildings, which were originally painted this color to imitate the red sandstone architecture of Mughal cities.
However in this small backstreet I liked the multi coloured façades of these buildings.

i'm so jealous, but also happy for you.
Its a dream to visit India at some point, hopefully soon than later.
the large door is the fain focus here, but i also like the green colored door in the bg.
love the textures and roughness of the walls, on the large door too.
excellent exposure and lighting.
nice subject all around

This is a very attractive little corner that you have found yourself in Jaipur indeed. The combination of all the green, blue and red pastels are simply gorgeous. But how on earth did you find a place in Jaipur without any people in in it ...?

Yes, this is an excercise in pastel colour contrast. Very well seen and framed. Apart from the colours, which define the photograph, I'm also intrigued by the elaborate hinges, locks and bolts on the central door. Great image.
