The ad campaign that I’ve heard, seen and read about India is telling me that it’s an incredible country. So when a friend asked if I’d be interested to join a photography trip to India, I jumped at the offer. The trip was arranged by Kemilau Indonesia – I recommend you to check their scheduled tours if you like photography to be the main activity of your travel.
In this particular trip, 30 Oct.-5 Nov. 2014, the main event that the trip is focused on is Pushkar Fair. We spent 3 nights in Pushkar to document the event. Was it worth it? Definitely!

Any rides are appealing to children. Fun is indeed a universal language that goes beyond race, religion and social status.
A common market scene in suburb area of India. Like Indonesia, I bet this is the vein of Indian Economy.
Got up early to catch sunrise over Taj Mahal, we’re disappointed by the weather. It was a hazy morning and the sun only showed up late.
Where the dead rest in a wealthy place and the living dwell in a bare minimum. (Taj Mahal, Agra)
