Cameras for Asia 2015 report

Wandering cows, bustling trains, vibrant chillies, soaring mountains, peeling doors, laughing children, cups of tea, welcoming people, brilliant saris, the grain harvest…┬áVisiting India is all about colour, life, noise and connection. The month long photography program in September/October was the third trip for Cameras for Asia to India and the program returned to some familiar places and also visited some new ones.

From Instagram: A beautiful woman delights the eye

“A beautiful woman delights the eye; a wise woman, the understanding; a pure one, the soul.” ~ Minna Antrim. Does it really need saying? Indian women are beautiful, and not just for their colourful clothes and ready smiles, but their relational and accepting ways, their willingness to serve and engage. In their presence I felt comfortable and safe, delighting in that easy sisterhood women share around the world and grateful for how they willingly cooked for me even when there was little to share, swept my room, brought me endless cups of tea and coffee, sat with me to keep me company, loved me like a sister, gave hugs and kisses, and generally served me in ways I didn’t deserve. Thank you. #indianwomen #iloveindia #lonelyplanetindia #india #women #womenswear

From Instagram: Fading grandeur

Fading grandeur, Rajpur, India (from last month). The locals must see me come here every year and think “here she is again, that girl obsessed with our old doors”. But I just can’t help myself. Every door with paint peeling, broken shutters, splintered wood and the slightest hint of old world charm in Rajpur gets photographed, much to everyone’s bemusement. I just hope they never paint them. #rajpur #streetphotography #sharetravelpics #bbctravel #wonderlust #india #iloveindia

From Instagram: Rajpur moment

Rajpur moment, India. I’ve often seen cats treated very well in my travels around the world. Here’s a case in point: sunset viewing, a clean porch, a soft bed and a window on the world, even if it’s an annoying photographer. #lovecats #india #rajpur #iloveindia #lonelyplanetindia #bbctravel #streetphotography #guardiantravelsnaps #sharetravelpics #cats

From Instagram: Progress and change

“The world hates change, yet it is the only thing that has brought progress.” ~ Charles Kettering. Selaqui is a growing industrial area outside Dehra Dun that was once all mud houses like this one down dusty lanes. But progress is coming as is the bitumen, shops, traffic, noise and possibly an end to rural scenes like this. Indeed the main road into Dehra Dun, just a few kilometres away, is where that starts. The 25km into the Uttarakhand capital is an endless stretch of the new India – development, property, horns, trucks, industry. The owners of the school in this still rural area where I taught photography with @camerasforasia were sure this would soon be right outside the door. #progress #lpindia #iloveindia #development #developing #natgeo #thephotosociety
