Taken when we were running around the huge Hawa Mahal Jaipur. One look at the neatly space columns, and Pooja wanted to pose inside. How could we resist adding our flavour to it?
The day began with us having a 3 hour wait in the aircraft to Jaipur, due to fog twice, and the third time due to low fuel. Our hotel in Jaipur was 5 mins away from the airport, so that was a relief. 1 hour of practice, and we were out scouring the city.
In the 4 hours we had to spare, we also saw the Hawa Mahal. True to its name, the first corridor we entered greeted us with wind brimming in. The pic above was taken in one of the topmost sections, in the open courtyards. More to come soon. We also visited the Jantar Mantar and Sawai Man Singh Palace. Hunger was satisfied at local place called the Khandelwal Bhojanalay.
Post that, we left to the Mariott, to rehearse and perform.
Jaipur was lovely this time of the year. The weather was just brilliant. A pleasant 20deg in the after noon and around 14deg in the night. I would it was a lot better than Bangalore, when we landed the next day.
Photographer tip – Jaipur’s heart is filled with palaces, culture, colours and tradition. The monuments are towering and sight to behold. Best captured on a wide-angle lens. Try using the sun cleverly in your photos to get flares, silhouettes.
