Loaded cycle rickshaw in the backstreets of Pahar Ganj. My first morning in India and i had to get up with the sparrows and go wandering in the streets, though by nature I am not an early riser.

View from the roof of my guesthouse in Pahar Ganj

Another view

Potplant. Actually, it looks like a weed in a pot. Can anyone identify it as not a weed? :-)

Holy cow in the backstreets of Pahar Ganj

Street dog. He's quite well fed this one. Actually most of them are.

Damaged street dog begging for food

Damaged street dog eating biscuits. This one probably has worms or some other wasting disease.

Pepsi man

Delhi Metro station. Its great, make sure you try it out if you go there.

Morning Traffic in Connaught Place

Another street dog


Another sleeper.

The flower market near Connaught Place

Man at the flower market. As soon as I saw this man, I wanted to photograph him. He was sitting, with a ton of attiude, on a motorbike. I asked him if I could photograph him but he scowled at me in reply. So I went to work on other more agreeable people nearby and won him over by showing him the shots I'd taken of them.

Man and his cycle. He's still got that lovely scowling attitude. He was too far away to resist me, except by looking the other way but I was quicker than he was.

Pretty bike. Indians appear to have a particular attitude to beauty. Its something worth purusuing. Unfortunatley, I think its inherently tied up with religion and I wonder if for them, it's not about beauty at all. Obviously in this case, it's about making money.

Nicely observed, poignant but not depressing. Love #3. Portrait in #16 still turned out pretty good.

Love #2, is something going to fall down, or off? People shots are great too.
