Imaging India - Wow! The bustle, the colour, the light, the vast tides of humanity - you could spend a hundred lifetimes photographing this great country and still not be done. Here are some photographic impressions of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Goa taken on a Leica M8 (what a superb camera for travel photography!) during my first trip to India in June-July 2009.
I started out in photography in 1973 with my mum's old Kodak Brownie 127. Four Nikons, a Rolleiflex, two Hasselblads, two Leicas, a Noblex and almost forty years later, I still have fun using that Bakelite beauty with its single optic, fixed aperture and shutter speed. Long live film!
