I got the chance to travel to India recently because of my job. After lots of contrary opinions and advices from different friends, I was not very sure what I was going to find there. What I was sure about was that I wanted to take my camera to capture it.
I decided to take my Fujifilm x100s with me because of its reduced dimensions, even though I knew I was going to be somehow limited by its fixed focal length. I am still working in getting used to be limited to one specific focal length at the time, but I have to recognise that I feel more and more confortable shooting this way.
My first stop during my 7 days journey was Delhi, the capital city of the country. Because of our tight working agenda, we could not visit much more than most emblematic spots in the city (if you get to know me you will discover how much I like city walks far from the tourist spots).
I also had the chance to take some portraits, like this beautiful girl or the guard below. Even if he looks serious in the picture he offered a big and sincere smile whenever he was asked to be photographed.
Camera film corner, a small shop selling film and snacks near Qtub Minar, one of the main tourist spots in Delhi.
India is a country with lots of contrasts, but of a formidable beauty and reach culture.
After spending 3 days in Delhi, I had to take a flight to Hyderabad, where I had my next meeting… but that would be another post.
Thanks for stopping today.
