It's good to go where everyone knows you're name.  No, we're not at Cheers, we're back in Jodhpur, India.  We always stay at the same place, the Devi Bhawan.  We've spent probably about 30 days h
The rain here in Kolkata has been pretty relentless.  I usually try to wake up around sunrise to get in a few hours of photography before working, but the rain just keeps coming.  I did manage to ge
During our first meeting in Kolkata, our fair trade supplier told us that the monsoon would arrive any day.  We know that the monsoon is the rainy season, but I didn't realize that it actually "arriv

Our guides thought we were out of our minds to want to set up a shot in Jodhpur, they wished us luck and said unfortunately they'd be "busy".  After the rural photo shoot under our belts, we knew we

Top photo:  The older girl wanted her picture taken, so I had her stand under the hand print on the wall.  Some of her friends were on the balcony above me, I think they embarrassed her... she w
All these photos are taken just before sunset.  The market around the clock tower has the frensy that reminds me of a mini Marakech bazaar.  There is also great view of the city if you just work y
Along with doors and bikes, we can never pass up a good cow photo.  This cow was trying to push her way into this door, notice the door flexing inward.  I guess it's like a dog scratching at the d
Jodhpur is known as the blue city, but I managed find some examples of green among all the blue. When I see a bikes, I usually take a picture of them.  I'm not sure why, I just do, I like bikes.  I
  While I was taking a photo of this turquoise and red wall in Jodhpur, these two boys came out of nowhere.  Although the wall is nice, having these two kids with outfits that happened to look

Beau and I have been to a lot of locations that are hot and humid but I think Kolkata is in the top 3.  Of course it does depend on when you visit a location, but this could compare to our Egypt trip

Meggan and I ended our stay in Jaipur with a visit to the Amber (also known as Amer) Fort.  This is a spectacularly ornate structure perched on a ridge overlooking the pink city of Jaipur.
Jaipur is a must on any itinerary to Rajasthan.  Like pretty much everywhere we've been in India, this city is bursting with colors to photograph.  Jaipur is called the "pink
After an overnight train ride from Varanasi, Beau and I arrived in Agra four hours late but still eager to see the Taj Mahal.  We had an hour to freshen up for our date with the Taj Mahal. 
As stated in part 1, Meggan and I simply could not put our cameras down in Varanasi.  It is a very special place.  Again, this is a place you must come and experience, but here's our

Throughout our journey, we have met hundreds of travelers, of those who've been to India, each has a different take.  We have heard everything from, "Magical." to "I.N.D.I.A
