London

Monday, April 25, 2011 | Travel

I thought it would be fitting to post a few street shots I took on a little trip to London earlier this month. The city was abuzz with preparations for the wedding of Wills and Kate and I had a fantastic time. Happy Royal Wedding Week!








Love this last one riding in the rain on the train.

Photographed with my Rolleiflex and a Canon AE1.


ps. If you're attending our royal wedding party, you'll be receiving a fine art print set of my London photographs.

India

Monday, April 4, 2011 | Travel

I recently had the amazing opportunity and privilege to travel to India. It was the most fantastic experience I'd ever had. I visited the Taj Mahal, stayed in an ancient fort, took local trains, watched the sunrise and the sunset each day, saw a tiger, wore a kurta, took in a Bollywood movie, ate dinner with my hands, toured poppy fields, rode a camel, met amazing people, visited the magical spice market in Old Delhi....and more. Posted here are view of my favorite photographs (all shot on film with my 1962 Rolleiflex with mostly Kodak Portra 400 film.





{Kids getting out of school in a local village. They hopped all around me saying, "One photo! One photo!" }

{ This next image was the last photo on a roll, taken on a jeep; I didn't think it would turn out, but I love it. }


{ This next one was taken inside my tent. I loved the block prints the most out of all the Indian fabrics. }


{ Watching the sunset at the Monsoon Palace in Udaipur. }


{ Second day, Delhi was mad! }


{ This was my hotel room door in Jaipur. }


{ The spice market in Old Delhi was amazing, the tight little streets and stalls were so fun to explore. }


{ On a motor bike ride around Pushkar, I hopped off to snap the colors on this cart. }


{ After taking a local bus, we got in a jeep which took us to an ancient fort to spend the night. This was another shot to finish the roll! They seem to be the best. }


{ I was only allowed in one camera to the Taj Mahal and one roll of film. Since you have to dress very modestly in India, I always wore a scarf over my v-neck tees (which was also good for keeping dust off you in the back of a jeep, the sun off you in the desert and bugs off you on the safari)...and a good spot to tuck a few a extra rolls of film in while visiting the Taj. }


{ We visited a small factory where they were making scarves and saris. }


{ The princess in Udaipur was getting married the weekend we were there and there was a lot of bustle around the palace. }


{ One of my favorite unexpected experiences was taking the rough local trains. }


{ Castle Bijapur welcomed us with a chain of marigolds. }


{ A garlic farmer shows us her field as the sun set. }


thank you for letting me share!
