Our hotel in Ranakpur overbooked our last evening and asked if we would mind moving to Jojawar an hour or so away. Although we couldnt find Jojawar on the map and knew nothing about the place we agreed. A small non-descript town boasting no real sights or palaces which Rajasthan is known for, but affording us a day of photo shooting.
A short series putting Jojawar on the TE map.

That`s what I love,when I travel,finding nice places,never heard about or not mentioned in the guidebooks.I hope you had a nice day there.
The image is great.I like the tight framing with this doorway and the letters above.
Good colors and contrast and I like how they klook at you.

Elaine: perhaps India will take first place for the tiny storefronts - great inclusion of local script as well. Perfect post-processing as well. best, c

I see you also have some shots of people sewing :o). I really find it amazing these small spaces that they seem to do all kinds of work in. Good clarity also to see the details on the inside of the shop. Nice to put a new place on the TE map.

Hi Elaine, this is superb and gives a lovely insight into the Indian way of life. I love the moment and the way you have framed and captured it

Great framing, they look like in a box very tight. Great quality when it comes to the dteails, very good natural colours.

A nicely cropped picture where the vertical format comes very naturally. You have obtained a good contact with the two men who look attentive but still quite relaxed. The inclusion of the sign above the doorway leaves us in no doubt which part of the world this is from.
On my recent visit to India I spent most of the time in smaller places off the tourist track with the only attractions being the fantastic people and the incredible sights of the streets. No palaces or magnificent temples but so much more fun.

A very nice shot here of these two young tailors looking out at you from their tiny little shop. They both seem very well-groomed young entrepeneurs and that sign above the door is just a wonderful touch to a great photo. Very nicely done.

This is just so very typical of many Asian, particularly in India and Pakistan. The people here are very good with tailoring cloth, I rember when I was young in school I have a friend from Pakistan living in Laos, his family did this for business. I went there to get my school uniform done. Great shot. I love it, I would have like to be a tailor if I were still in Laos.

Was een beetje aan het bladeren wat je zoal hebt geupload de laatste tijd. Deze vind ik meer dan de moeite waard om een comment achter te laten. Vriendelijke gezichten, vooral de man links, ook al kijkt de man rechts iets argwanend. Wat mij het meest aanspreekt zijn de details (naaimachine) en vooral je kadering met die lettrs on top....zeer fraai, heel mooi gekaderd en opgezet in de compositie. Detailering naar binnen toe is perfect belicht....raw rulezzzzz ;-)
Hoop dat alles goed met je is...

Very symetrical and very sharp. A good composition. Such piercing dark eyes. Tfs, Marlene
