Shooting in black and white in India is almost impossible – there is so much colour everywhere. However, I had a few shots that were just too colorful and not working that way. I toned them down by converting them into black and white.
First up, a typical street in Jodhpur. You’ve got shops to the left and right, motorbikes, bicycles, people and even donkeys on the street. Surprisingly the donkeys knew where they had to go, as the women leading them walked further behind them. The donkeys walked in pairs, transporting building material through the city. Nobody paid them much attention…
… except me, because I could not believe that they were quietly walking in pairs through the streets, exactly knowing where they were going. I can only imagine that they do this walk every day (if not several times during one day) so they know it with their eyes closed!
Of course, as you can tell from my previous post, kids are everywhere! Here is a group of young and cheeky boys…
… and two of the small school kids that we met during our desert travel:
Plus a shot next to the market, that I really like, because you can see the wheels from the left to the right, all neatly arranged!
These pictures are clearly not your typical Jodhpur pictures, but that’s why I like them. Don’t you agree?
