Photographer's Note

This photo was taken at the colourful and eclectic old city street market in the city of Jodhpur, western Rajasthan.

Jodhpur has a population of approximately 850,000 people and is known as the second city of Rajasthan. The city of Jaipur to the east is capital of this region.

Jodhpur sprawls around the impressive clifftop Meherangarh (Majestic) Fort. The old part of the city, nearest the fort, is surrounded by a huge 9.5km long wall with 7 gates and 101 bastions. Inside the walls are a tangled labyrinth of narrow streets and it's easy to soon lose your bearings.

The market is located in the 'clock tower' region of the old city and sells pretty much everything from food, spices, textiles and clothing to household items, toys and electronic goods.

This girl was selling fruit with her mother.

PP details: Slight cropping of image to the top and right sides (about 5% each side); Subtle colouring added to try and hide the over-exposed sky; Minimal contrast correction; White frame added.
