A clay art on the wall, Jaipur
After some grueling viva session at BITS, I went on my way to Jaipur which took me four and a half hours to reach using a local bus. It was quite an experience.

In the time of just four days I had touched four states - Haryana, Rajasthan, Uttara Pradesh and Delhi! (Whoa!!)

Two nights and a day at Jaipur, then couple of days in Agra and then back to Delhi to board the flight towards my homeland in South - this was the plan. Since I was with my parents I dint have much luxury to explicitly buy some time to photograph. I had to be quick in seeing the opportunity and transforming them into meaningful images.

I didn't do travel photography till then. So it was quite a challenge for me. I was not used to take the camera out in public. I hate public attention. But in order to make travel photography this aspect was a must. Initially I was a bit reluctant but within couple of hours I went normal and my eyes started seeing frames.
This is the very first of the series which I will be presenting from my trip to these places.
The one and only!
It was a completely different journey for me. A road where I had not been before and a place that was completely alien to me as a photographer.

Here I was, a Nature Photographer who was trying to find frames in the jungles of the historical architectures amidst the rich colors of cultural diversity.
Hope you enjoy this journey with me.
More coming soon...
