Photographer's Note

Jodhpur is known as the " Blue City "of Rajasthan: True, because when looking at the old streets surrounding the great Merengarh fort, an observer can see an agglomeration of blue houses down the hill. But the problem is that there are not whole streets of these, blue painted houses are scattered here and there. This is why after trying to locate them from the fort I decided to go down and get closer. I found a typical neighbourhood, smelly, steep and narrow alleys ,carved inside a labyrinth , open sewers running down on all sides, lots of cows ,lots of barking stray dogs, but still the area has a lot of Indian charm and is really colorful in places. . So when I discovered this cozy corner , I decided to wait until someone whould show up. My camera was placed on a tripod, I probably waited over 10 minutes until this woman came up.
