City of Bikaner, Rajasthan

I disturbed the pigeons.

Printed fabric drying. The factory was just down the road and I was invited in to take a look.

For Diwali. This little manure design is placed at the front steps of the house.

The small streets of the old city are never crowded.

These carts are widely used in India, sometimes for selling vegetables, sometimes instead of rickshaws, but most often for just pushing stuff around from place to place

Dogs are everywhere. I could write a 1000 words about dogs in India.

That's a drain under those loose stones. See the black cow down the end of the street. I love it how animals are to be found throughout the towns as well as in the countryside. However, if they had a choice, I wonder if they would prefer to be in a field really. The more modern cities are starting to get rid of the animals. India will lose a lot of its colour and charm then. Less smelly and risky too, I suppose.

A 1000 stories lie behind this door.

An obliging sitter.

I love it how the animals find interesting places to hang out; places where you would never see them at home. In Delhi i tried unsuccessfully to take some snaps of three dogs sleeping in a rickshaw.

This bull had the audacity to headbutt me…

… off that cement thing in the middle of the road. I was only taking a picture.

Things of beauty are everywhere.
